Ideally, you should test around the same time every day, between 11AM and 8PM is best.

Once you receive a positive result, you'll typically ovulate 12-24 hours later, although the full range is 6-36, depending on what part of your surge you caught with the OPK.

I really recommend the Fertility Friend app. It has a tutorial that covers every aspect of fertility tracking!

IC cheapies is like Dill said 11-8 PM. Test at the same time each day. I normally tested at 11:30 and 6:30 pm (when I got home from work). Clearblue one's I would test with SMU not FMU and both cycles I have used them now I got a Solid Smiley face at 11:30 AM but I think everyone is different so maybe test twice a day until you see what is normal for you GOOD luck!

I don’t want to take over this thread but rather than create another as I have a similar question... my OH has been away... and is due back tomorrow... I tested for OV today and got a solid smilie face and positive on another... is it highly likely if he is back tomorrow night I’ve missed my window? ������

No the smiley is just telling you your two most fertile days so time to get busy as soon as he gets in tomorrow! Good luck

Thank you. I will test again this evening to see if I still get a positive result and hopefully the OH won't get back too late to try!
