@KS240030:  You would definitely have estrogen and LH at the same time – the estrogen surge is actually what causes the LH surge (higher levels of estrogen signal the release of LH, so they’re totally related).  I don’t use OPKs anymore (I temp) but I have EWCM for several days leading up to ovulation, and it goes away after.  Sounds promising that you might be ovulating in the next couple days!

My cycles are consistently 26-27 days and I usually O around CD11-12 with 15 day LP. I get +OPK’s the day before I O. I always get EWCM on the day of O itself, but sometimes on the day before as well (the day of the +OPK). This month I O’ed early on CD 10, with at + OPK on CD9. It’s not common to O so early, but it does happen. With your normal O at CD13 I don’t think it’s an issue.
