When to stop taking Evening Primrose Oil?


Hey ladies,
Just wondering when you all stop taking EPO? I know you're not supposed to take it after ov but as I'm not temping I won't be exactly sure which day I ov... (I tried temping for a month but don't think it was very accurate cause kept waking in the middle of the night worried I'd missed my temping time! Then I didn't get enough sleep before I was actually due to temp... Was a bit disastrous!)
I have an estimated ov date just based on my dates... Do ye think I should take EPO til then or stop a day before (or 2 days?) just in case the dates are wrong?
This is confusing, sigh!!

I stop after OPK shows positive.
For example, when OPK shows positive today. The next day I don't take them anymore.

estimates on the ov is just for the average women, most of the time it's not accurate so i woudl suggest you take opk tests with temp so you can use them both as you go by and determine when you ovulate. do you have an alarm? use an alarm and temp when it goes off and just go back to bed.

not sure how it will work for me though.. LOL... cuz for those days that i want to sleep in, i would have to set my alarm twice .. once to wake up at temp time at like 6 am then set the alarm to wake up to get ready for my late class (9 am). see the problem? hmm... lol.
