TTC after 35

For those of you that temp AND use OPK's

Do you find that your temps correlate with your positive OPK?  I just heard from a friend that her OPK is positive days AFTER her chart tells her she ovulated. This makes me wonder if the OPK's are as accurate as they claim.  I know you can't REALLY know if you O'd without temping (which I don't do) but I am just wondering from your experience if you think the OPK's are accurate.  Thanks!

  • I usually get OPK+'s  for two days before I actually ovulate

  • I bought a pack of 40 OPKs.  I got one positive and 39 negatives.  Yes, 1 positive.  And it was on the day I ovulated according to my temp.  So I quit using them.

  • I always get a positive 1 day before I ovulate. My temp always dips too. I love them.

    I'd say that maybe your timing is off.  Your LH surge is only going to come 24-48 hours before you ovulate.  So, using them every day is just a waste of time.  I usually start testing on CD9 and test around 11am (a good testing time is between 10am - 6pm due to the signals triggered in the mornings to release the hormone).  I usually get my first OPK+ around CD12 and then a 2nd one on the next day and my temps indicate ovulation usually 2 days after the first OPK+.

  • I use the CBE OPK's and always get a + (just for one day) around CD12.  I start testing around CD9.  I am relieved to know that others have the same results.. :)
