I normally don’t have a temp spike until 3 days after my OPK is positive. There is a chance that you just haven’t ovulated yet. GL

Usually they count a temp change of at least .4 degrees to signal that ovulation has occured. I rarely have that much of a temp spike, though, even though I know I’ve ovulated (via sonogram), which my doc says is because I have really low progesterone levels. So that’s another possibility in addition to you just not showing your temp spike yet.

@cali_cat:  Temperture is the only way to confirm ovulation, OPK’s are considered a secondary source. In other words, if your temp has risen, your crampy and have signs of O then the OPK can confirm it.

There are quite a few ladies on the bee that almost get positive OPK’s or positive OPK’s but they don’t ovulate. In my case, I only ever got positive OPK’s when I was about to O and it was always the day before. Each person can be different 🙂

Some people also get significant temp rises and others are only a few points away (like what your saying). You want 3 temps to be consistently higher than your last 6.

If this is your first cycle off of a hormonal birth control pill you may not ovulate this cycle. I didn’t ovulate my first cycle off of BCP even though I was getting positive OPKs
