Positive ovulation test so how long does it last?


Sorry if I sound a bit dense but I'm still getting to grips with stuff!

When I ttc my dd we just dtd every other day and caught first cycle. Wed bought ovulation tests but never had to use them. This time around we were going to do the same thing again (dtd every other day) but armed with what knowledge I do have gained from this site I'm finding it tough not to look out for signs etc.

Anyway yesterday I had crampy sharp type pains for maybe half hour or so and then last night in bed I had really achy legs so much it took me ages to get to sleep. I also noticed I had ewcm. So we dtd last night.

Then this morning out of curiosity I took a clearblue digital ovulation test and actually got that little smiley face come up.

According to the packet when you get a smiley face you have 48 hours when you're fertile but what I'm wondering is if today actually counts as my 2nd fertile day due to the ewcm I had yesterday and what I think were ovulation pains, or would today and tomorrow be my fertile days?

My hubby is out later tonight but I'll try to dtd tonight before he goes out and again tomorrow too but I just wondered what anyone else makes of the smiley face tests?

Also has anyone ever experienced achy legs as a sign or was that just something else? I hadn't had a particularly active day or anything!

Sorry it was so long and rambled!

Thanks girls

I've never had more than 2 days of positives with OPKs and with the last cycle, I had a bit of pain in my lower left side the morning of the 2nd pos OPK.

As far as I know, you're still fertile for up to 24 hours after you ovulate aswell because that's how long the egg lives for.... so, in theory, you should have72 hours of fertility from the first positive OPK.

I would just BD like mad tonight and for the next couple of days!

Good luck hun

xx

Thanks guys!

I think we'll only get to dtd once tonight before he goes out but fingers crossed with last night and tomorrow night and probably the night after that too we'll have it covered!

And Arrielle congrats on your bfp!
