Yep, it is completely possible to O on CD10.  The fertility calendars usually just assume the average of CD14 or 15 for ovulation but for most women this is not the case, and the CD for O can also vary from cycle to cycle.  Just curious, did you get a positive OPK on CD10 or did you ovulate on CD10?  The actual day of ovulation can only be pinpointed if you are temping.  Positive OPKs tell you you will O usually in the next 12-36 hours after.  If it is your first time using OPKs it is possible you usually O earlier, or this could just be an off month.  Regardless, it sounds like your timing was pretty good.  GL to you!

If u are charting, the best way to figure this out on your own is too look at your start date of your period for the past 6 months. Figure out the average # of days between. Subtract 14 from that # and make sure to try around that day. I have a 31 day cycle, so I don’t actually ovulate until approx day 17. If I were TTC on day 14, like a lot of women assume, I may not get preggers. Good luck to you!!!! I hope it happens soon!

Yep, most likley you O’d CD11 but could have been CD12 as well.  Only temping will tell you for sure.  As for @FutureMrsShrewsbury:‘s comments, this will only work if your luteal phase is around 14 days.  (Another thing you can calculate if you are temping).  Last month my luteal phase was only 10 days (30 day cycle, O’d on CD20).  The previous month my cycle length had been 27 days.  So if I had subtracted 14 days from when I expected to get my period I would have BD’d too early and missed my actual O date.  You are fine though, using OPKs is a good way to detect your surge and gives you a good idea of when you are most fertile.

I always get a postive OPK for two days but don’t ovulate until day 19… three days after my last positive OPK. I would say start temping if it’s something you want to pin point to the exact day. GL

@MrsR4ever:  FYI: Once you can confirm when you O, the time between O and your period (known as the LP) generally stays pretty constant. So, the second half of your cycle should be fairly constant while the first half can vary more.

Hey there, just popped in. I’m pregnant due in June and got pregnant the first week of my cycle, not the second like a lot of people. For me, I found I ovulated really early on in the cycle providing for a very clear BFP before my missed period. Shocked me, but it’s totally possible and wanted to share that. I’m probably the odd one out but it happened for us!
