I have heard that LH is always present, the OPKs go positive only when there is a surge. If you don't know when you Ov, it's really never too early to check for it. Once you have an idea around the time you Ov it makes things much easier to track and gives you a better idea when to start taking the OPKs.
If you have a normal LP and a pretty consistent cycle length my very estimated guess would be between CD15-CD18

Thanks, that makes me feel much better. I have been so worried this cycle, and I think it is because I am doing so much new stuff all at once...charting, paying attention to cm much more, OPK's, ect. So I guess it can be pretty overwhelming. I did take another OPK today, and I definitely think it was just a bit darker than the ones I took yesterday! So I feel like I saw some change. I am actually going to test 3 times today, just to see what happens. I'll take another around noon. I started testing on CD 6 because I had no idea when I would O. I have been trying to BD every other day until I get a positive OPK, but I did miss one day. I'm back on track as of this morning though! It would be nice if this was my month, and I wouldn't have to do this stuff for long haha! I am definitely feeling optimistic today though, after seeing this morning's OPK! Hoping for a positive soon!!!

Sorry, I know it's not the right thread, but how do I link fertility friend into my signature? Do I just go to my chart and paste that URL into my signature?

I see you do have a link in your sig...did you want the chart to actually show?

Go to "Sharing" at the top of FF. Under that tab you will see "charting home page", under that section you will see "Get Code". That's where you get your code from to show the chart on your sig. Hope that helps.

My first cycle using them my test line got pretty dark, but never as dark as the control line. I still ovulated, and AF showed on time. This cycle my test line has gotten just as dark as the control line, I was just surprised because I wasn't expecting it too.

Not sure why one cycle it gets darker than another cycle... hoping it's a sign of an extra strong eggy!!!! Lol.

I start using OPKs around CD7 because I like to see the progression of the test line, probably the best way to get to know your own is to do the same- start testing early and watch for when they get darker and are detecting your surge!! Some woman have more than one surge though, so don't forgo BD'ing until you know for sure you O'd After your first cycle it gets much less confusing and you aren't second guessing yourself because you have something to compare it to!
Yes, I have started to test early - I know I'm nowhere near ovulating but thought I should try and get the hang of it as I've never done it before and have nothing to compare it to. Someone at work uses cbfm but that seems better for women who have a more predictable cycle. I've done two so far (started yesterday) and have got two faint lines. It seems pretty straight forward so far - let's hope I am actually ovulating! Thanks for the advice, I'm really grateful - and happy to receive any other hints and tips!
Hope your eggy is 'extra strong' lol!
