Hi Ladies! I’m a long time lurker looking for some help! this is our 3rd cycle of actively TTC, and my 2nd month using OPK’s. Last month I used the FR digital, but this time I decided to try the cheapies. I tested twice yesterday, CD18, and both were positive. I tested again today to see if the surge was over, and both were still positive. How long should I expect to see this? or should I just stop testing and continue with the BD? I don’t chart, but would I expect to O within the 12-36hr window of my first positive? or do the tests go back to negative first?
thank you for any help! 🙂

My RE advised me to stop when I first get a positive surge. Just to confirm I was taking the test correctly, I tested after my first positive and had 2 positive days. You can get the surge for 2-3 days depending then it will go back to negative. Since you can O 12hrs to 36hrs after, I normally will BD every other day before my surge, then every day after my surge. Hopefully, we covered our bases:)

thank you so much! I guess I just need to stop testing. I had a longer cycle than normal last month because I was sick and on cold meds, so I can’t really compare cycles. Since I only had digitals last month, I only tested the day I got my positive, so I wasn’t really sure what to expecte with the cheapies. I already warned the hubs that we will BD again tonight. I’m sure he’s so disappointed! 🙂
