The DH & I are ttc, i am using a opk test. This in march I had 1 smiley face and this past month no smiley face. Whats going on?? Am I doing this wrong? I test in the morning, but read that people test throughout the day.

any help would be awesome.

thanks

Re: no LH surge on opk test

  • You may need to test multiple times a day.  I have to test 3 times a day because of a short surge. That can get pricey with the Clear Blue tests. I use the Wondfo OPKs from Amazon & confirm a positive result with the digital. You may want to

  • I'm not sure what your brand's instructions say, but mine state to NOT test in the morning. But I do know a bunch of people test twice a day at least. I only test once, but I also chart.

    Also, it's perfectly normal not to ovulate once in while. I

  • Some people have a short surge which can be hard to catch. The cycle I got KU with DS I never got a positive OPK. I must have missed the surge because DS is proof I did in fact ovulate. 

    Try testing twice a day.

  • Thank you ladies. I use clear blue. it doesn't say to not test in the morning, it does say to test at the same time every day, So i do in the morning. I go to work at 6:30am. wouldn't it be hard/awkward to test during the day..while at work?

    <p
  • I asked something similar recently. It took me awhile to get a positive this month... I ovulated later than ever on cd 21. It's ok to use FMU with clearblue digis, so I wouldn't worry about that. I do plan on switching to wondfos if I need them next cycle
