I did some research and for a 28 day cycle it says to begin testing around day 11. however I just bought a CVS brand OPK and it says to begin testing on day one? I'm on day 10 now do you think it would be ok to test tomorrow? I'm getting inpatieint
You can get a line up to 2 day before ovulation happens... most women ovulate on day 14 of a 28 day cycle. So testing on day 11 gives you a chance of catching an earlier ovulation.
The whole issue is that you need to have enough tests to last you the cycle... so if you start too soon and you ovulate late, you may run out.
Its definitely ok to test now... best time is between 10am-2pm. Testing earlier or later and you may miss your surge.
You want your pee to be held for 2-4 hours before with minimal fluid intake.
I just noticed something.....I thought I was totally out this month with my temps being almost as low as my coverline.....until I sneaked a peek at your chart LisaF YOU JUST MADE MY HEART POUND HEAVY! I have a chance.....I'm not out...your temps dropped way low as well that takes a LOAD off my shoulders!!
Lol.. glad to reassure you Andrea! Not sure if you knew me when that happened, but I was SURE the 2nd low temp must mean I was out... I was even sobbing about it that 2nd morning (thats when I got a line that showed up after the time limit and got a blood test and got my early BFP).
I'm almost convinced that thinking you're 'out' is a pregnancy sign
oh... and even though I have low progesterone, and low temps usually mean falling progesterone... mine was actually REALLY good when I got that BFP go figure.
I went on the progesterone suppositories anyway just to be safe and you see my temp climbs after that (they always made my temp climb so I have no idea what my temp would have been without them).
