hahaha!!! ok weird! tehe but yehh I know what you mean, they can be unreliable and just because it says positive doesnt mean your ovulating, it just means you have had a LH surge, which some women can have all the time!! (might explain you!! lol)
I've started temping now though . . . hopefully it'll work/ I'll stick with it!!
What she said about multiple LH surges is so true. It's more common with longer cycles (like your 54 day cycle) and can even happen with regular 28 day cycles. It's common to have multiple surges coming off bcp xx
Can I join this thread ladies? I also came off BCP's Sept (the 11th) & this is my first month OPKing. I have had some lines darker than others on and off, and think I am due to OV tomorrow the the day after, but none very dark-most faint =( I am so nervous that I haven't even O'd yet since coming off BCPS! I am hoping for a BFP before next year!
are you temping as well? thats the only way you'll know if you OVed for sure!
I've had no lines all month, then one day I had one uber dark one, where the left hand side of it was very close to the colour of the test strip, so looking at that and other signs I think I OVed, I just think I caught the tail end of my surge as some people have wind up lines and wind down lines!
so fingers crossed thats what it was!!
My temp has gone from 36.11 DC to 36.30 DC in two days so it's looking good for me!!
hi when I do my opks mine go slightly darker for the week. I even get paranoid that ive missed it. I must admit, I even kept them to compare from the previous day this month. I dont think my husband likes comparing the colours I think he just thinks im mad lol. it is very stressful waiting for that dark line x
Its so stressful waiting for the dark line! My surge is so short im not sure i even caught mine tbh! Lol weve done anough BDing so im hopeful! Lol
Im just waiting now for my temps to show that i OVed and ill be a happy girl...for wo weeks! Lol i am hopeful though as my temp is higher than normal today... Fingers crossed!
ohh yes! lol you can never get a pos OPK and still ov. . . (you may have missed your surge!) and you can get a pos OPK and not OV lol!! it's quite scary! but an LH surge is a good sign of ov!! ohh and get BDing lady!!! tehe
Hi everyone. I'm going to start the whole temping and using opks after this af (if it ever comes). I stopped taking bcp in may and have had 2 late cycles because of it. This cycle included. I am 9 days late. I may have spotted last night but then this morning ;nothing.This is completely unusual for me but since coming off bc I guess anything is possible. I think I am ovulating though so I think it's just a case of late ov. I guess we will see when i start charting. Good luck ladies!
