-OPK this am, Now + with pain but no CM

I am a night shift nurse. When getting home I thought taking OPKs in afternoon is better so right then, even thou it was 7AM, is really my afternoon/evening time. Took it and it was negative(Had no symtoms of ovulation either) Am at work and took an OPK around 8pm and it was blazing positive. The reason I took it was because I was feeling ovary pain on both sides. I am on clomid so am in the time frame to ovulate. We BD 6,7,9 and will in the AM(11th) and again the 12. I have not seen any CM, which I have been getting loads of at the time I think I am ovulating in the previous months.

My question is...Getting my +OPK tonight with symptoms and not BD until 12 hours later, without CM, Do you think there is still a chance???
I know, know one knows when the egg actually will drop, I just wonder if its not dropping as we speak since im hurting, even thou I just got a positive. HELP!!

My cm usually becomes non fertile the day I ovulate which seems backwards but apparently this is how it usually happens anyway. I guess because you start producing progesterone and this dries it up. If you don't conceive this cycle perhaps grab some Preseed or similar in case it happens again

You will Still be in the time frame. After your positive you ovulate around 24 hours later, and the egg is then viable for another 12-24 hours. Good luck!
