5 days doesn’t seem right…are you testing at the same time every day? I believe a positive indicates you will ovulate within 48 hours, so 5 days seems excessive…

I wonder that the FMU is throwing things off because it’s concentrated? 

You can try temping and using an adjuster. There are websites where you enter the time you took it versus your normal time, and it will calculate it for you…that would at least give you a clearer picture…

I’ve used this one:

It probably depends on your schedule though, as I know FF recommends against adjusting, and says to just take your temp when you wake up.

Either way, I do think temping will give you more of a “complete” picture. I started just using OPKs, but since I’ve been temping I found it give me way more of an accurate picture.

I’m pretty sure they want you to have a minimum of 4, so you’re probably good!

We’ve been TTC for 7 months, but like you our first few we just kinda had sex whenever, and i didn’t use Opks or temping…this is my third cycle using both. The women around here have an incredible amount of TTC knowledge, and i’ve learned a lot!
