Multiple positive OPK after ovulation?

HeatherMM, I too had two positive reads this month with prolonged cycle. After multiple months of just OPK use and no charting/tempting, I learned that some women can have a “surge” days prior to their ovulation. So the OPK will pick up on those reads and indicate that ovulation is pending, when actually it happens days after. I had a strong OPK read on CD 19 and when my temperature didn’t spike and I felt O pains, I took additional OPK tests and got strong positive reads on CD 32, 33, and 34. 

My best bet is that you ovulated on CD 17.  Your temperature went up and the OPK read is positive. Keep monitoring your temperature and see if the elevated temperature stays above your coverline. Good luck!

Honestly, with all of the open circles, I think it’s going to be really hard for FF to give you an accurate assessment, and you will probably end up with musical crosshairs. Who was it… @aliciapdx: ,  I think  – who thought she was having positive OPKs way after ovulation. In the end THOSE were the +s and she ended up pregnant! 

I’m going to disagree with the PP and guess that you might end up with a delayed ovulation. (It’s also totally possible to get +opks and not ovulate, so that could have happened earlier too!)

@HeatherMM:  I would say keep BDing. I will also say though that I get 1, MAYBE 2 +s the whole time. Which means I have to use a lot of sticks. I have no idea what’s “normal” though because I think it just varies a lot.

@HeatherMM:  I typically get two days of positive OPK’s before ovulating.

Question for you though, are you taking your temperature at the same time daily? I see lots of open dots which I believe on my chart indicates you changed the time of day for testing.

It is really important to test daily at the same time to ensure consistency. Per FF: When temperatures fluctuate a great deal, it is usually due to inconsistencies in temperature taking methods. Make sure you are taking your temperature at the same time every day, when you first wake up, after a solid block of sleep, and with a BBT thermometer.
