4 DPO? Or have I even ovulated?? Advice please :-)


Hi to all! I recently joined this site do its all new to me still...

Basically I'm after some advice. My last period was the 18th January, I have 28 day cycle, but my luteal phase can vary from 12-14 days. So I figured I would be ovulating somewhere around the 28th-4th. (wide gap I know, but didn't want to miss it!) Anyway, I used a ovulation calender and typed my details in, my fertile dates came up as the 30th-3rd. The 30th came and I did get some thick,stringy discharge, but it was brown (TMI, I'm sorry) So I thought perhaps it was just 'clearing out' from my period. However since then I haven't had any discharge at all really. Me and my OH had sex on the 27th,1st,2nd and 3rd just incase! But I'm beginning to feel like perhaps I've not ovulated due to lack of CM. I have been emotional(teary) an I've had a horrid blood taste in my mouth. Yesterday I had a constant dull ache in my back and front and twingy boobs, but is it me ovukationg late or could it possibly be that I am 4DPO and possibly pregnant? Though it's way too early to have symptoms surely??

Thanks in advance for any replies :-) x

Unfortunately without charting there is no way I can say for sure that you ovulated, but I wouldn't really count not seeing cm as a sign that you didn't. You could have just been having an off month. For now I would just treat it like you ovulated, wait for about 14 days since the last time you had sex, and then test with a first response using first morning urine. If it's negative you should really consider starting to use Ovulation predictor kits every month to help pinpoint ovulation, along with charting your basal body temperature. Those things coupled together give you so much more control over your cycle, and will let you know when/if you ovulate. You can get ovulation predictor kits on amazon for super cheap!! Good Luck!!

I'm in the same boat as you. My last period was on 17th Jan, I used OPKs and had my first positive on 02/02 but I've had 5 positives since then (using them every day) but I don't know if I've ovulated. My breasts feel quite heavy and a bit fuller today and I was a bit achy in my abdomen yesterday so I have no idea. Gonna BD again tonight then just hope for the best good luck xx

Is it true with OPK"s that the test line has to come up darker than the control line? Good luck to you x

My test line is never darker than the control line, it just gets "as dark" as the control line, and that is a positive too! Hope that helps!

Mine is "as dark" or lighter prior to a Positive which is always darker, and comes up immediately as darker than the control line. However no, the test line doesn't need to be darker, just "as dark" as the control line

Sublimegirl85, I have been having dull aches and cramping for the last three days, no cm though. Which when I ovulate I generally get quite a bit. I have also had some really vivid dreams, I dreamt my auntie died a few nights back, when I woke up I could remember everything. I can't remember the last time I dreamt. My boobs have been getting sort of stabbing pains on and off, and i think the line aroumd my nipple is possibly darker, i dont know if im talking mself into it though?? Fingers crossed I get my valentines BFP! Good luck to you!!

@MUMMY STUTT
If you are not lucky this time, I would definitely recommend trying Clearblue digital OPK with your next cycle. I got pregnant with my first cycle of using them (after trying for 6 months with online calendars). It turned out that I ovulated on CD11 but we had not been bd until CD14-16 so missed the boat completely!

I did unfortunately mc but I started OPKs again yesterday and I am now on CD10.
