    Just a quick question, how long does lh surge last for? I mean, how long should opks be positive for before they turn negative again? I had a positive opk today at 10am & another one was positive at 1pm but now ive just tested again & its neg!!!! is that normal or not? i thought it was meant to last longer than a few hours!

    Last month I had two days of a positive on my OPK's - however, this month - just one day. We can OV the day of the positive, or the following two days from the last positive result. So, get busy!!! :sex:

    Edited to add: it also may be because the concentration of the hormone isn't as much, if you have been drinking a lot? I would do two more tests tomorrow - maybe one around 1pm, and one at around 5pm?

    I think that it varies from person to person, from 2 days down to a few hours.

    Good luck and magical baby dust for you
