    okay so started testing on opks cd 9- today cd 17.
    my first response said positive cd 13-14.
    cd 15 and 16 were taken with very diluted urine... and at night unlike the others so im counting them out bc i know they would have been positive if i would have taken them with 2mu like all the others today was post. so why is it remaining post how can i know im ovulating without temping???

    OPKs are designed to detect the surge. I had 10 days positives before and had whats called an annovulatory cycle...no ov. The LH kept surging to make me ov but it never happened. The only way to know for sure is by having a CD21 progesterone blood test. An easy way to check that though without bloods is to monitor your temp but you need to temp before ov to get the cover line. Once you ov your body starts producing progesterone...its that hormone that makes your temp go up...hence how you would know you had in fact ov. I hope this makes sense.

    Don't freak out! Call your doctor & request that test...
    Maybe it was something as simple as you were misinterpreting the opks.

    No you only get a positive opk while your body is producing the LH to help you ov. Once you ov they go neg (although there will be some sort of line) Positives for several days is not impossible. Your doc should have no need to refuse a day 21 blood. If you are not ov then he can refer you to a gynae but with good lines like that I suspect you are just later than you realise. Thats why you must do your opks at the same time every day and not drink lots before you do. That way they are accurate. You likely have had positives for 4 days. Which means ov is about to happen

I mean don't get me wrong my husband is the best and we have made it through so much but o still feel incomplete it's like I'm longing for something thats suppose to happen.
