@NLbride:  See what happens!  You’ll have to test a few times to see if the line is getting darker or lighter.  Darker if you’re getting closer, lighter if it already happened.  Make sure you do it consistetly at the same times of day.

@NLbride:  I would test in the afternoon and evening for the next day or two and see if you get a positive. It is worth a try as my calendar can be off regarding the O date so you never know!

Like others have said, no harm in trying.  You may very well already have ovulated, in which case you won’t get a positive – but if you’re close enough still to ovulation, you may see the test line fading.  Or, you may be off about your ovulation date and it hasn’t happened yet 🙂 A lot of women don’t fit the “average” of the day 14 ovulation (I don’t – I’m average between CD17-20), so you never know until you start gathering more data.

@NLbride:  Oh, one more note – a positive OPK only means you are likely gearing up to ovulate, not that you have ovulated or are definitely going to.  Have you looked into charting?  That’s the only way to actually confirm ovulation.
