Will your CM fluctuate, or your OPK results? For lots of people, the opk is super faint, then goes dark, then positive withing a day or so, so when it gets darker, you test more frequently. What would not be “normal” is if it was going really light and then really dark multiple times in a cycle. Do you have pics of themm?

I think CM is a notoriously poor indicator of O. Those opks are going positive – you’re about one pee away from a full positive. So get on the BDing!

Mollie-Rose:  it’s not! With a 28 day cycle, and the fact that you ovulate 24 to 48 hours after those things go positive, it’s pretty much dead on when it should be.

Mollie-Rose:  I only used OPK’s for one month (the month I got pregnant) and my CM did not match the OPK either. I relied on the OPK and ended up pregnant!  So don’t let that positive go to waste;)

Mollie-Rose:  Both of those scenarios are possible. Some women never get fertile fluid (or very little of it, especially if they’re older) and it is also possible to have a LH surge and for whatever reason not ovulate, and have another surge later and ovulate then. I’d treat any positive like you’re going to O, but keep testing if you’re not confident in it, just in case. If you want to be sure of O then you’ll need to try temping, it’s the only way to truly confirrm O at home. (See the ‘Charters of the Hive’ thread for questions) Also,  I always O between CD10-12. CD14 is average, meaning some women O before and some after. I get + OPK’s on days 9-11, depending on the cycle.
