    Hey Ladies,

    I haven't had a chance to do an OPK today, but over the last couple of days I've had a lot of watery CM and today (for the first time ever) I've noticed I've got egg white CM. My cervix is also very high and open and I've had some cramping over the past couple of days as well.

    My question is, if I go home and i get a negative OPK, would I still trust my CM enough?

    I'm on CD 33 of a 42 day cycle.

    This month I had a very positive OPK on CD14, so assumed I ovulated. Then on CD 28, when I would have been expecting AF I get loads of ewcm so did an OPK and it was positive! The next day I had O type cramps an sensitive nipples that I seem to get after O (also a neg hpt, in just in case!). So basically, I would trust your body and signs more than an OPK :)

    An opk tells you 12-48 hours b4 u ov, so even if you are ovulating you wouldn't know unless you tested yesterday. So yes I'd trust your body

    So i just went to pee, -OPK, ready for the TMI part? When I wiped, there was red streaking through my CM. This is the second time I've had EWCM and the last time was about 10 days ago but I was only getting a faint +OPK (all others before and after were stark white). Maybe I missed my LH surge? Or maybe AF is on her way....

    You know there's no such thing as a FAINT + opk, the second line must be as dark or darker than the control line. It's not like a hpt where a line is a line.

    All of my OPKs were completely white where the second line should be, then I had a line lighter than the control line, then it disappeared.

    I know its supposed to be as dark/darker than the control line. I guess saying it was a +OPK was the wrong wording. They were my darkest -OPK's.

    Opks just don't work for some people (like me) I barely ever get a 2nd line and I have pcos so it should be darker if anything! I've conceived twice and never a had + opk
    Do you have pcos?? Cos I get that ewcm every 10-12 days like my body is gearing up to ov but doesn't

    I do have PCOS.

    I'm on my second round of clomid, going back to gyn on the 25th. Hoping I can be going back there thanking them for helping me get pregnant other than needing to up my clomid. 42 day cycles suck!

    Also how many times do u opk a day? Some women can have stark white opks all day, have the + opk surge that can last 2-3 hours (hence why you need to opk several times a day) then back to stark white straight after.
