CD12, OPKs still negative...


I bought 20 OPKs from eBay for 4ish and I've done them every day since CD8 because I'm beginning to wonder if I'm ovulating earlier or something. I'm now on CD12 and have just done an OPK (it's 10:15pm here) and it was negative again.

The only other cycle I have used OPKs, I got positive ones on CD15 & 16.

Would you worry if you were still getting negative OPKs at CD12?

Also though, the test line seems to vary, some days it's darker than others, but not getting gradually darker each day - is that worrying?!

Sorry for all the questions, I just sooooooooooooooooo want my now xxx

You have used opks before and got positives day 15/16 - not sure why you are worrying if you are only day 12 now???

My cycles were regular 26 day cycles and after a couple months charting I found I ovulated around day 16/17.

Not that there is such thing as the normal average cycle, but on a 28 day cycle average ovulation is day 14.

I think its perfectly normal not to see anything happening at just day 12.

ps...you are in 2ww - thats folk who have already ovulated and are now waiting for those 14 days to pass before they find they are possibly pregnant......if you go back to trying to concieve forum you will get loads advice there.

To boost your chances you should have sex every 2nd day from now...and when you get a positive opk do it that day too and the next couple days.

And when you get a dark opk, dont test the next day.

When you get your dark opk it is likely you will ovulate over the following 2 days from then, but its best if you have already has sex as then the sperm is already there waiting for the egg!

Good luck!

Hi i am cd14 and have been useing the internet cheapies and they are still showing no line at all and i am also useing the clear blue digis and no smilie. My last cycle i got a smilie on cd15, but like you i am wondering why the ebay cheapies are still not showing anything. God i find this part of the month so stressful i just want to know that i am ovulating. Do you check your cm to see if it is changing that might help.

Thank you hun much appreciated. I think I just wanted someone to tell me it's OK, cos I don't understand how we haven't managed to get pregnant yet. My cycles are pretty regular, 27 to 31 days, but average of 28. So I was beginning to wonder whether I ovulate earlier than I think.

As for being in this part of the forum - this is where I only ever post, it took me a little while to get replies in here, if I go to another part of the forum, I may never get a response . Sorry if I'm annoying anyone by posting on here though!! Plus I 'know' the ladies on here and like to follow their progress xxx

Yeah I wondered whether the ICs were just rubbish really? But they're just SO expensive otherwise! And yeah, I start to worry that I'm not going to ovulate and then the month will be lost! I don't know if I have enough CM, which is my other worry so I think I might take evening primrose oil tablets to help... It seems quite watery at the moment though. We use preseed to help.

I also BBT (I did cycles 1 and 2 and have just started again this cycle) and have been charting my temperature since CD9. CD9, my temperature was 36.2/97.16 (but I'd gone to the toilet and then took my temperature as I forgot), CD10, 11, 12 and 13, my temperature has been 36.4/97.52. In the first month I had a temperature drop on my ovulation day, so I'm hoping to see the same thing. Not sure if it's good that my temperature is exactly the same for 4 days?!

Thanks for your response hun, nice to know people know how I feel!! xxx

With a cycle of 27-31 days average, its unlikely you ovulate before day 14 - much more likely you ovulate later in cycle. Average is that you ovulate 10-14 days before your period ends.

eg if its a 30 day month, you will likely ovulate from day 16-20

Oh, and please dont wait for true dark positive opks. I used cheap internet ones and mine never got to true positives. When mine got dark as in clearly able to see then I would take that as a positive, best start bd then anyway!

It helps to talk to ladies in the same boat as my oh is getting really bored with me talking about ov and the ttw i am driving him crazy. My cm is just starting to change and i have a 31 day cycle so i think it is still early days for both of us. We used the preseed last month and i got a terrible bacterial infection from it so i am scared to use it again. We are going to have to get plenty of bd'ing done this wkd oh has been pre warned lol.

Well we're BDing anyway so hopefully we're covering the right days anyway but I like to see it confirmed so I know I'm ovulating. Thanks for the info re the IC OPKs! Very useful actually cos the line is still very faint but not looking like it's gonna get soooo much darker, so good to know! Thanks again xxx
