Since DH and I have had no luck with just charting, I decided to give OPKs a try this month. I’ve tried to follow the instructions, no FMU, test around the same time etc but I’m having trouble deciphering a positive. They all look fairly positive to me, and if I’m being really discerning I’d say CD 16 and CD 17 at the very least. Interestingly, I also temp and haven’t seen a shift yet http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/saraja87 so I don’t know what’s up with that. I also started FertilAid for women this month, which I’ve heard can do wonky things to your cycle so I don’t know if that’s a contributing factor to the seemingly endless positives? I’ve also had weird sharp ovulation? cramps on my right side for the past few days.
What do you ladies think? Positive? Negative? All positive??

I think it is only considered positive if the test is darker than the control line, so for my eyes, 17 is the only maybe of the bunch, as the control looks just slightly lighter than the test. It looks like maybe you ovulated that day or maybe even the next day. It is definitely close!! Hoping for you!

I would have to say 17!
PS I thought this was my picture from a couple months ago! Our handwriting looks identical!
Good luck 🙂

Thanks ladies! Today is CD 17 and that would definitely be the better day for us. We were supposed to get DH a SA yesterday so we’ve been holding off on BDing until last night. We went to his appointment and it turns out it was in the wrong department 🙁 We followed the instructions from member services but apparently they don’t know what they’re taking about so we have to make a new appointment. I’ll make sure we get down to business now though 🙂
@MrsMaskatoBe those slick little strips are a pain to write on! I haven’t used them until this month since I thought temping was enough, but hopefully they’ll do the trick for us this month:)

Annnd CD 18 is also a positive, but still no temp shift :/ Is it normal to have this many positive OPKs? I had bloodwork done on CD 3 and my LH was normal (aka really low) so I know it isn’t high all the time. Could it be the FertilAid? I started it on the 12th and have been taking it twice a day.

16 and 17 look positive to me. About temp shifts, it doesn’t have to be a sharp increase, it can increase slowly 🙂
