    i am giving up hope waiting for a +opk.

    does everyone get +opk apart from me?

    I am due to ok tommorow/monday i guess.

    but i have never ever had one. :nope:

    i have never ov'd later than CD12 but i guess my temps will show one way or another and if i still have not +opk i will give them up on my next cycle..... but hopefully i wont need to!!!

    Hey :hi:, just wondering are you testing twice a day? I didn't get a positive for months then I changed to testing twice a day at 10am and 5pm and hey presto I caught it every time after that. The rise can be short lived and very easily missed. x

    hey hunnie, i think testing first time at 4pm is a bit late and maybe why u not getting a true pos, opks are mysterious bloody things i used them for just over a year but i always got my pos opk b4 ov but then im a true poas addict and tested like 4 times a day from cd13 :blush: many also say AM urine u will never get a pos with but i have used FMU with them many a time and got my pos i just found the opk i took later that day was alot stronger.
    many women miss there surge as sometimes the surge can only last 3 hours hence why some miss it but do in fact ov, also some women never get a true dark pos as there LH surge isnt as strong as others but if ur temping and monitoring CM and then get a dark opk but just lighter than control line the chances are that is ur pos and thats as pos as it gonna get, i dnt use opks anymore not because i had probs with them or anything as im a lucky person and have never missed my surge sometimes it lasts 3 days i just stopped coz i dnt need them anymore iv been TTC so long i just "know" when im oving now, if unsure of ur test results huns u can always post pics in here and us girls will confirm for u too xxxx

    i also get ov pains sometimes quite badly and have to lay down for while, this cycle they really hurt lasted 2 days i even took some paracetamol, but then yesterday my left side started so im thinking i MAY have relased to eggs :dance: as i never get double sided ov pains and the left side was DEFO an ov pain :dance:, weirdly if i wasnt TTC and knew myself inside out id worry about the ov pains i get just glad i know what they are :)

    I hate OPKs. I never get a positive even though I test at least twice a day - but I'm pregnant now so must be ovulating. Just :sex: every couple of days and you won't miss it, I guess. It is annoying, but it's not going to stop you getting pregnant. If you temp at least you'll know afterwards. Don't stress too much - they are not that accurate (although I stressed!!).

    I've never seen a positive one testing twice a day with 10mIU ones. I just class the darkest one I get (which isn't so dark at all) as the positive on my FF chart! I do definitely ovulate! :)
