Thread: When using OPKs

    Default When using OPKs

    What cycle day do you start testing with them? Maybe I can get a more accurate idea of ovulation this cycle.

    For me, I know I usually ovulate later in my cycle so I usually start on CD 12. Most time when I have ovulated (which I don't usually without meds) it has always been either CD 18 or 19. So I usually start a week out just so I can make sure to catch the date.

    I am like Sara, I normally ovulate Cycle Day 18 so it really just depends on your cycle length. I normally start at Cycle Day 12 also to make sure I dont O early and miss it.

    Both my RE's now have told me to start on CD10 just in case. I O'd CD16 this month. Got a +OPK CD13 last month but I'm not completely sure if I O'd (didn't start BBT until this cycle :-/ ) My cycles are about 30-33 days.

    Ok, thanks! CD 10 it is, just to be sure.

    I often ovulate earlier on meds than I do naturally, though I always add a trigger just to be 100% on timing, so my OPK's are more to make sure I don't start on my own before the trigger. On my medicated cycles I start the OPK's on CD 10. Good luck!
