I really need some advice as im gettin quite worried, i stopped taking the pill 5months ago since then my periods have been fairly regular around 30days, lat month however it was ten days late, over the past two months i've been testing with an OPK first thing in the morning but they all say negative. Can someone give me a reason as too why and i'm getting worried that i'm not ovulating at all. I should probably point out i was pregnant at the age of 15 but decided it best for everyone not to keep it now i feel like this is payback for making a stupid mistake when im young
What OPKs are you using? Most say to test in between the hours of 11am and 8pm and the reason for this as far as i Know is that the LH is made in the morning and there will not always be enough to get a positive OPK first thing. I thought that the surge also only happened for like 12hours or something so maybe you are completely missing yours?? Maybe you should try testing in the afternoon or maybe twice a day? I know that I ovulate 11 days before my period, so if I were to be 10 days late I could have totally missed my ovulation with an OPK or been testing for like 20 days!!! Hope you workl it out!
"The best time to test is 2 p.m., or as close as possible. Anytime between noon and 8 p.m. is fine, first morning urine is not recommended. The reason for this is that most women experience a surge in the morning, but it can take 4 hours for it to show up in your urine."
my fmu never showed a positive line! I tested 3 times a day to make sure I didn't miss it and got my darkest lines between 2 and 5 pm. I got my +opk at 5pm on CD18. I used ebay cheapies, they're cheap so I didn't beat myself up about testing so much.
