@Turtle Bride:  I do not think OPKs are more accurate. They only predict a possible approaching ovulation. BBT actually confirms it. I use BBT as my primary sign of ovulation. It is possible to miss the LH surge, which is the one that will give you a positive OPK. Testing several times a day tends to help solve this problem. If you in fact ovulate a given cycle, you should be able to get a positive OPK a few days prior to ovulation. You might get one that has the test line just as dark as the control line. Try testing more than once or twice a day. Good luck!

@Turtle Bride:  I usually hold my urine for about 3 hours, and I still drink water maybe a cup or two during that time. I am lucky if I can wait the whole 4 hours. I go to the bathroom quite often, so I just don’t like holding for too long. I have tested with 2-hour hold but trying not to drink but a cup of water. I am guessing it also depends on each individual.
