OPKs

When do you start using them?  I think I am going to use them this cycle as well because we seem to have good timing but I think somehow we are missing O. And what ones do you use?

    There is a chart on the instructions in the pack.  You will know when to start them based on the length of your cycle.  Good luck!

    I use Clear Blue Digital OPK's - get them in 7 packs at CVS, costs approx $35 for the box.  I start with day 9, and test every 12 hours religously.  My O day is either day 11 or day 12.  Although this month it gave the smiley face on the evening of day 10 - which is why I tested again the next morning and sure enough still the smiley face for the morning of day 11.

    I started on CD 10-11, and have O'd CD 15-17.  I'll start CD 12 or 13 this cycle.  I use the internet cheapies from early pregnancy tests.com.

    I use internet cheepies (saveontests.com) I start testing at 10 dpo and I realized when I surged after the first cycle of using them (until I found out I tested late morning, afternoon and before bed until I realized I got the surge in the afternoon, now I only test then)  I have a 28-30 day cycle and almost always O on CD14 so I start testing on CD10 to be sure
