    ...still ovulate without having any positive opk's? I have had a temp dip today so just curious as its getting late in my cycle now. Got an almost positive opk on sat so is there a chance I missed my surge :shrug:

    Hi hun,

    No I didn't get any positive OPK's this cycle, although I tested every day for 5 days lol... and I definitely ovulated on Sunday so it does happen. It's probs that your surge was so quick you missed it like I did... so annoying lol

    If other signs are showing that you've ovulated then I'd say you're fine... checking cm is my best way of tracking personally :)

    Good luck and baby dust to you :) xx

    Are you testing more than once a day?? If you are not- you could very well be ovulating but just missing it. This happened to me 2 months ago- I KNOW I didn't catch the surge as early as I should have had I tested twice or even 3 times a day. This last month I was an OPK ADDICT and tested 3 times a day around O time and caught it VERY early... the earlier you catch it too- the higher the success rate of course too- and thankfully it worked!!! I would definitely suggest to do multiple testing.. and also keep testing anyway because you may just O late!

    I have been testing twice a day, when I did my test on sat that was nearly positive I did the test and left it as had to go out for the day and by time I got home in the eve and noticed and did another test it had gone back to being barely visible :shrug: I'm gonna keep testing, its my first month properly charting and testing and I guess its the month to learn about my cycle. I have some issues with my bladder and urine at the mo, which means a doctors trip this week, could this effect the opks?

    I'm in a similar situation right now. According to FF, and because of my EWCM, I have ovulated although the OPKs didn't fully pick it up. I had faint positives for a few days and then nothing. However, my temp has been raised for 3 days now suggesting I did ovulate. Who knows! All I know is that I didn't expect to ovulate this early and I don't think we've DTD at the right times. This is our first month of TTC so hopefully we'll get it right in a couple of months once I've worked out cyles and stuff.

    Good luck!
