Since you’ve never done it before I’d probably start on day 9 or so, counting from the first day of your period.

Nickig_4:  The best time to use OPKs is usually early-late afternoon. I usually use them around 2-3pm. Maybe start with that and when they start getting darker you can use them 3 times a day so you don’t miss the surge.

Yep, afternoon is best. Try to hold for a few hours before you test if you can.

I’ve never done more than 2 per day, but you can buy the Wonfo brand on amazon pretty cheap. If you start testing on day 9 and don’t O until say…day 20, you’re going to be short. 9 isn’t going to last long lol.

from what i understand the egg white mucus leads up to ovulation – it lets you know that you are “fertile” so you are supposed to BD during the time that you notice fertile cervical fluid. after ovulation the cervical fluid dries up fairly rapidly. the book “taking charge of your fertility” is really helpful to me.
