After getting a few “pick me ups” in my last venting post, my husband and I decided to take my OB’s advice and TTC sooner than later. AF came today. My last cycle lasted 25 days and they usually range between 24-26. I am going to use OPK. We used OPKs about a yr ago and for an entire cycle I received neg on First Response. I started on CD10 and ended the day I started my period. Should I start testing immediately after my cycle? Is there a possibility that I ovulated sooner than CD10 or maybe not at all? also until three weeks ago both tubes were blocked and now its just one. Would that have anything to do with getting negative readings on OPKs?

@mrsberry2011: I doubt having a blocked tube will prevent your from getting positive OPKs, if at all it does is give more work to the opened tube. In your case, since you have shorter than 28 days cycles, which is great for TTCing, I would say you should start testing as soon as your period ends. Some ladies, as it might be your case ovulate really early. Good luck!

With a cycle that short I’d start testing earlier. I have a cycle from 25-27 days and I get a + OPK on CD9-CD11 depending on the length of my cycle each month since I have a consistent 15 day luteal phase. I’d test as soon as your period ends, at least by CD7.

Thanks! My periods usually last ~4-5 days so I will test CD6
