Your body can gear up to ovlulate and not ovulate and try again later, but it’s pretty unlikely to ovulate twice in a cycle.

There are a few possibilities – one is that you’re about to ovulate. Your body can have multiple surges in LH (the horomone that’s measured by ovulation predictors) with only the final one actually causing you to ovulate. Since you will always get your period about two weeks after ovulation (unless you’re pregnant), you probably had a surge of LH but didn’t ovulate. 

The other possibility is that you ovulated later than day 24 and are now pregnant. Because HCG is similar to LH, if you have HCG in your urine, you will get a positive ovulation predictor. If that’s the case, you should get a positive on a home pregnancy test. If it’s not HCG, you may be about to ovulate now – so go get your shag on!

Ditto what Katie said.

The only way to know for certain if you ovulated, would be to chart. OPK’s only show that your body is gearing up to O, but do not actually confirm that it happened.

Also, those cycle tracking apps are so inaccurate when trying to determine your fertile window. They just take a guess based on averages. The only thing they are all that good for is tracking cycle length, and that is about it.

Good luck! I hope things become more clear and you get a BFP soon!
