OPK Help


I was reading about OPKs and decided it was a good idea to get some. From what I read I should look at the shortest cycle I have had in the past 6 months (28 days) and start testing based on that which would be CD11
I ordered the wondfo test strips and the clear blue digital. I ended up testing at around 5 (first urine since I received the strips.)

The CB gave me a smiley face and the wondfo I was uncertain about but it was only about 2 minutes after dipping. I grabbed my OH and told him I am fertile so we DTD and then I looked again about 15 minutes later and they are similar but I am not sure if its a definite positive. I will post pictures.

What I am more confused about is that according to apps on my phone, one says I am supposed to O on the 20th and I am not even supposed to have fertile days till the 17th and the other says I am supposed to O on the 22nd. I am only on CD11! Are the tests wrong? Could my LH be naturally high? Am I really fertile now? This was my first time with both tests so I am concerned that I screwed something up since I never saw a negative. Do I have an unusually short folicular phase?

I am not quite sure what to think since both of my apps are way off. If this is also the case then we didnt DTD at all last month when I was fertile and missed my O. I am very confused. I will attach pics of the tests.

If you get your spike tomorrow I'd say you Ovulated. Otherwise maybe it was wrong. Most digitals are right with the smiley. I'd retest tomorrow to be sure and temp

I've been DTD every day so I am pretty sure my bases are covered but since it was my very first OPK its kinda freaking me out to see a smiley face. Also, if I would have taken it in a few days I would have missed it and assumed I didnt ovulate at all. I am wondering if this is due to the pregnitude I've been taking and its giving me a shorter cycle or if something else is going on.

Did the wondfo test appear positive? Is it normal to O on CD 11 or 12?

I've just been looking on google and yes it's possible you can ovulate early or late

But this would be almost a week early based on my average cycle.

your O might not be on day 11, I got positive OPK at night CD18 and morning CD19 and my chart didnt show O until CD21. There is a dip there in your chart which my be it though. If your shortest cycle is 28 days I really don't know why your apps would be giving you such late dates? Have your more recent cycles been longer?

I would keep using the OPK..... keep in mind that the positive you got might be the only one you see this spike but don't stop using them until you get confirmed O from your temps.
It is possible to get more than one spike in a cycle too, sometimes the body builds LH up and tries to O but it doesn't happen, then it does it again a few days or a week later, I believe this is more common in long cycles.

Temp went from 96.6 to 97.2, OPK still positive this morning but I will check this evening and see where it is. My average cycle is 31 days and it ranges from 28 to 34 being the longest. I've also been taking pregnitude this cycle. Not sure if that is causing me to have a shorter cycle. Gonna keep BDing throughout the month and using OPKs and temping daily till AF comes or I get a BFP.
