Positive OPK on CD14 & 15... then again CD23/8DPO... Help?!
 
Just out of random curiosity yesterday at 8DPO I dipped an OPK strip in my fmu and it almost instantly came up positive! I used OPKs earlier in my cycle and got positives on CD14 and 15 and according to my BBT spike I ovulated on CD15, which makes sense compared with my previous charts. I've randomly used OPKs later in my cycle before but have only got positives around my typical O time.

Also, I noticed at 8DPO my temp took a big dip... and then this morning at 9DPO it spiked up again.

My most recent menses was strange, lasting only 2 days. Normally, it lasts 5-6 days. I stopped taking the BC pillmid-May and everything has been "normal" for me since so I'm not sure if my body is now going haywire or what?! :shrug:

My chart is below. I took a break from BBT last cycle in September, hoping a decrease in stress and anxiety would help... but then I had the wonky menses so I started temping again, hence the lack of temps last month and beginning of this month.

FYI I have taken HPTs since my "period" and most recently this morning, but sure it's way too early for a :bfp: if that's the case.

I've been stalking a lot of forums here and on other sites (scouring the internet for information) and I have noticed that after implantation a lot of women notice positives on opk's when in fact they are pregnant. Many of them also notice an increase in or continuance of ewcm. I'm new to all this, but I hope the information I've gleaned can help you. Remember though, sometimes women ovulate twice in one cycle. Good luck and much baby dust to you!

I've been doing MAJOR research since TTC, most recently with my wacky 2 day period and now this OPK craziness... I've also read about ovulating twice in a cycle but also read that it's impossible to do so?! And I've seen TONS of women that got positive OPKs bc they were pregnant... but also read that OPKs can and can't be used as pregnancy tests and if an OPK were to turn positive for pregnancy then you would get a positive HPT, which I am not as of right now. Since I started using OPKs and got my first positive in the beginning of July, I noticed that I get O cramping. It's like a dull/mild ache... called middleschnitzel or something :haha: I got this cramping right around my usual O time, CD14 & 15. I haven't noticed EWCM really at all during my cycles, just watery, so have been using Preseed. My cycles have been a consistent 26 days, with a 12 day luteal phase, so if I am O'ing a second time or just later in my cycle that would give me a super short luteal phase of around 3 days :shrug: All I've been seeing is random positive OPK = pregnant and I'm just refusing to believe that's the case for me :nope:

From the fact that you had a major temp dive and a huge spike the next day tells me you implanted. You are correct on some things, but as for the opk detecting pregnancy and should show up right away on a hpt isnt necessarily correct. Yes opks can detect pregnancy but it doesnt detect the hcg rise. The hpts detect the hcg rise. So if you are not making enough hcg yet it will still show a negative. Having that positive opk just simply detects a possible pregnancy due to the rise of other hormones. But by the temp dip and spike i would say look forward to a bfp in the next few days :)

trust me when I say your situation is normal and you are more likely to get you're desired outcome than I am. I sure hope you keep updating this thread and posting your hpt pics here or in the poas party thread (which I am also stalking and soon will be participating in) if there is a pixie dust tree from which pixie dust comes from, I say we go on a quest for the baby dust tree!! good luck hun!! :hugs:

Thanks ladies! After the wacky short period and the strange OPKs I'm so worried that something is wrong and my hormones are going crazy! :wacko: I would very much like to conceive again, although not sure RIGHT NOW is the best of times... but then again it would never be a good time for me! And after a few months now of TTC thinking it would happen instantly like my other two and only to be disappointed month after month, I am really wanting to lean towards this being a funky cycle for me. After having the super short period I made an appointment with my OB/GYN and go tomorrow afternoon. Can't wait to share this recent information and hopefully get some insight as to what's going on with my body.

Some weird, different things I've noticed are - tho I've tried and tried to keep myself from symptom spotting - yesterday my breasts felt a bit sore/tender on the sides and felt/looked fuller. My partner made breakfast (scrambled eggs, diced potatoes and Italian sausage) and it tasted so super salty, I couldn't eat it! I always love his cooking and he said he didn't use any salt. He made breaded pork chops, brussel sprouts and stuffing for dinner and that tasted ok to me, except the garlic in the butter on the sprouts was a bit much and I absolutely LOVE garlic! Then I burped up some nasty acid crap in my throat - yuck!

The hpt I used (well, wasted) last night was a FRER. The hpt I used this morning was a Walmart First Signal cheapie. Also, just stopped home on my lunch break and noticed the OPK I dipped in my fmu today had two lines :dohh: The OPK from late last nite had only one line... What gives?!?!

orionfox Oct 27th, 2014 13:25 PM

Dont go by the opk you had this morning if you read it later on as anything that shows up after the alloted time is an evap. Hopefully you get some good answers soon.

MamaBunny2 Oct 27th, 2014 13:41 PM

Yeah was thinking maybe an evap. Also on yesterday I took a second OPK a little while after I took the first one and got a second positive that day. Then took the one right before bed and nothing. The night time OPK was still blank today...

MamaBunny2 Oct 28th, 2014 08:44 AM

Omigosh ladies this keeps getting stranger for me... So, I took another OPK yesterday evening with a super duper faint line. Nothing at all worth getting excited about. Then I randomly had nasty acid reflux again like I did the day prior. My man was gone all evening so of course when he got home and we went to bed we :sex: and when I used the restroom afterwards there was red blood when I wiped (and all in his semen, sorry if TMI). I shouldn't be starting my period until Friday?!?! So I popped a light tampon in and went to bed. This morning, however, there was NOTHING on the tampon?!?! :shrug: I checked my cervix - it seemed high, semi-soft and closed but maybe slightly open I don't know... but there was no sign of any blood. Did not waste anymore OPK or HPT. I'm so confused and anxious to get to the doc today!
