No, you may not necessarily have ovulated yet. I ovulated usually on CD 16-17 on a 27 day cycle! So you definitely need to keep testing til you get the true positive. Some people never detect a positive, however. So don’t worry. As long as you keep BD EOD that’s all that matters anyway 😉 good luck!

None of those look positive to me. I’d say keep on testing. You might find you don’t get a positive until day 17 or later. It’s not uncommon. and keep up the BDing!! If every day becomes a chore, just try for every other day. 🙂 Good luck.

heavenslight:  I’m gonna step outside the box here, but to me CD 15 @ 4:15pm is the closest to a positive that you’ve got.  And it looks like you didn’t test any earlier on that day so maybe you missed your surge (positive) that morning and now it’s passed.  Maybe if you had tested around 11am you would have seen a true positive?  (I know for me I get blaring positives late morning-early afternoon).  If that’s the case you may be ovulating right now if you haven’t already. 

But also like Truffle-hunter: said, some people never get a positive, so really the only thing you can do is keep testing and BDing.  Good luck.

MrsBananas:  I agree with you – I think OP might have missed her surge earlier in the morning on CD 15 and be ovulating today-ish. 

heavenslight:  Most people have a luteinizing phase of around 12 to 14 days, so if you’re ovulating on CD 15 with a 14 day LP, then yep – that would be a 29 day cycle! If you’re ovulating today, CD 16, then a 14 day LP would get you to a 30 day cycle. Are you charting your temperature? I’d keep having sex and taking OPKs just in case that wasn’t your surge, but if you’re charting temps, you’ll be able to confirm ovulation in a couple of days.

heavenslight:  I agree with MrsBananas:  that it looks like CD15 may have detected a surge. Do you test just once a day? When we were trying I made sure to test both in the morning and late afternoon around my estimated O date to ensure that I caught the positive. If this cycle doesn’t work out you may want to try that option next month so that you don’t miss your positive OPK. Best of luck!

CocoLoco523:  Hi!!!! I have been wondering how you were doing. I won’t threadjack but I hope things are moving along over there. Glad to see you on the boards. 🙂

heavenslight:  Absolutely. I think for the best chances, you want to hit the two days before and the day of ovulation. If you ovulate today, you got yesterday and the day before, so yeah – you’re golden!

heavenslight: Unfortunately with the changes in WB I cannot access my old photos so I can’t show you. Basically my morning positive showed the test line as darker than the control. I got my second positive (that evening) with the test line the exact same color as the control line. Your CD15 test looks like how mine did once I had O’d.
