    Just realised I've got my dates all wrong I think. I have been counting po after conception but that's wrong isn't it?

    I use Pink Pad on my phone which says I was ovulating from 17 - 23 Jan and I had sex on 20th. First day of last period was 8th Jan.

    Can someone better versed in all this help me please?

    Maybe try with them for a couple of cycles and see what CD you actually do ovulate. Or you can temp but I don't do that, i havnt got that far so i don't know much about it.Remember there is a 5 day window where u are most fertile. you are at your very most fertile about 2 days before you ovulate and on ovulation day, but u can also still catch the egg if you do it the day after.

    Opks detect an LH surge BEFORE you ovulate. So if you were to get a positive today the you will ovulate not long after that (between 12-36 hours or something, i'm not too sure on that one). So you would call the day after your positive test ov day and the next day would be 1dpo.

    remember you might also notice increased cm around ov, it will be like a clear egg white consistency.

    Sorry i dont know alot, thats pretty much all the info I know!

    Hia hun, iv been using the mydays app for the last year ttc out of 2 1/2... and this month i used opks for the first time that said i ov'd cd 10 when the app said cd14.. so i would have missed it and probably have been missing it for ages.
    Only thing is now i have a 3ww as i have a 30day cycle lol..

    Hope your app is better than mine :)

    Xx

    you might still be able to get a bfp b4 AF is due! You should be able to test around 14dpo whether AF is due or not u could still do a test then!

    So if I was going on my app it says was fertile from 17-23 and that I ovulated on 22nd Jan and therefore 9dpo? I have heard of mydays but Pink Pad seemed easier to use! I have registered with fertility friend but it wants so much info - I'm not sure I'm ready to get so full on with it yet.
