I agree about days 20 and 21.

I would say you probably ovulated 24-48 hours after cd21.

The middle one looks positive to me.  I want to say CD20, but there’s one too many to be one per day…

OPK’s give a heads up that you WILL ovulate 24-48 hours after the positive.  So, if that’s CD20, and you had intercourse on the 17th, if it’s a 48 hour warning, you’re pushing it.  But you might be able to get one more session in within the window.

@SapphireSun:  Actually, OPK’s just detect a LH surge it does not mean you WILL ovulate. You can have a surge and a positive OPK and not release an egg. This is why charting your BBT is important to detect actual ovulation.

 @want2beeamom:  When I get a positive OPK normally on day 15 and 16 I don’t actually ovulate until day 19. It will take some time to get to know your body… once you do it will be easier to detect a positive OPK. But I have to agree with the PP’s Day 20 looks positive 🙂 Good luck!

@want2beeamom:  first morning urine isn’t ideal for OPK’s, but that does look like a nice dark one.

@RoyalLime:  Right, I was speaking more for timing purposes.  Positive OPK on day 20, doesn’t mean you ovulated then, it’s a prediction that you (I suppose might) be about to.  More explaining why a positive OPK on day 20, and a BD session only on CD17 isn’t ideal.

I would go for day 20 (the middle one) is a bit better looking to me than the 21.

@SapphireSun:  Okay. Just wanted to make sure the OP knew the details is all. Sounds like you got it down 🙂

CD20 and 21 look good to me. The one you just took this morning (CD22?) definitely looks positive, but testing OPKs with FMU can give you a false positive. Make sure you test again later in the day to see what you get. I would keep having sex, though, because positive OPKs typically precede O. If your first positive was on CD20, then you should O any minute now (if you haven’t already). Of course, getting a positive OPK does not mean you WILL O, it just means you COULD O within a day or two, so keep having sex until your confirm O with three days of high temps.
