I'm very new to this as well, but that's how I've understood it too.

This is my first month using OPK and it's so frustrating! So many negatives...on Friday the line was much darker than all the previous ones but not as dark as the test line and on Saturday (noon-ish) it was definitely as dark as the test line.

Does this mean my true positive OPK was Saturday?

Also, I'm usually exactly 28 days...does O'ing at day 19-20 seem totally weird?

I reckon you got it though.


Twice in the am??? I miss morning sex.... Toddlers make it impossible!
Thanks Dragonmummy. I'm still a bit confused. I get either no line or faint line and no dark line........ I'm pretty sure I ovulated as my temps now gone up and it looks like I Ov'd Sat after faint band Thurs - would tie in? I also got a bit of spotting sat/sun - Ovulation spotting? Now starting to dry up....we'll see if temp keeps going up tomorrow. I'm sure it will all become clearer after 2-3 months of charting.

Hi, It's bizarre! We're on pretty much the same cycle and I've had the same dilemma. I guess it's drummed into us that day 14 is where it's at?!! I'm reckoning I O'd at day 16 now I've got more temperature data but didn't get a strong OPK band.

Day 19/20 is ok on a 28 day cycle but it is said that if you have a short luteal phase this might affect implantation. BUT I looked this up and found plenty of BFPs after a short luteal phase.

Who knows?!!

Thanks BabyDancer! My last 4 cycles have been 28 but they have been 27 and as long as 31...so maybe it's one of the longer ones this time...I think I'll wait to test until Aug. 5th...if I can hold out that long Here's my chart: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/28772f
