@Sunnyinct:  The window of getting a positive test is very small, you caught it this morning so yay! It means you will ovulate within a few days. I’d keep baby dancing over the next few days to cover your bases. The surge of LH that gives a positive OPK is just an indicator that you may ovulate soon, not that you actually are ovulating right then or that you actually will ovulate at all. The best way to confirm that you actually are ovulating is to temp/chart and see your temp shifts. Hope that helps!

Once you ovulate, you have a couple of days to actually get pregnant, and sperm can hang out alive for that long, even from one BD. Best to do it multiple times, though! Good luck!

@Sunnyinct:  The fertile window is typically 3 days before, the day of, and 1 day after ovulation. Many people will BD every other day or every day the week leading up to ovulation.
