    I never get a positive from the first wee of the day (opk) but will get a positive later in the afternoon. Does anyone else find this?

    You are not meant to use first wee of the day for OPKs as apparently the hormone builds up in your system throughout the day, I always got the best results between about 2pm and 4pm!

    It's very common, most women surge early in the morning, and it takes about 4 hours for the Lh hormone to build up in their system, so you can test at 9 am and even though you ARE surging, it has just not made it's way into your urine yet. That's why it's best to test in the afternoon, the Clearblue monitors are different because they measure Estrogen as well, which is why they need FMU.
