    does anyone have experience of using the ovulation tests from boots the chemist?
    i got a negative on day 13 and day 16 and 17, i didn't test in days 14 and 15 please can you tell me how many days you should get a positive for, just it just last the one day? Im unsure wheather i didn't ovulate this month or I just missed the surge by not testing on the correct day. I believe i have a 30 day cycle.
    Any info from anyone would be great, thankyou :hugs:

    You can get a +opk for just one day. Sometimes you'll get it for 2 days though. It's possible you missed it on 14/15. Did you have any other ovulation symptoms?

    I tried the boots ones and I didn't get a +opk on them, that said I think I wasn't testing at the right time. I went and bought some internet cheapo test strips and that way I can test from as soon as my period ends. It was too expensive for me otherwise.

    You get a positive OPK 1-2 days before you ovulate so just make sure you have sex the day of the positive OPK, the next day and the day after that.
