mrsbel91 :  Mine were normally 24-26 days in length, with a few outliers here or there.  I normally O’d on CD 15 or CD 16. A couple times it was CD 17.  Only one time it was CD 14 and that was when I got pregnant with my second.  I did temp and chart, I had a shorter luteal phase (9-10 days).

You could easily O earlier on CD 9 or CD 10…or as late as me.  Do you pay attention to your cervical fluid or do anything right now to monitor ovulation?  If you have a “normal” luteal phase length of 12-14 days that would put your O somewhere around CD 9-13.

When my cycles were short (24-26 days) I usually got a positive OPK between day 7 and day 9.  The month we conceived I got a positive OPK day 12 and ovulated day 13.  I was on an absolute ton of supplements to improve egg quality and hormonal balance and I don’t think it’s a coincidence that my cycle was different.

Mine were 24-27 days (so not always short). I would ovulate on days 10-13, and my luteal phase was always 13 days. The month I conceived (with twins) I ovulated on day 12.

Mine are generally 25-27 days, but have been as short as 24. The earliest I’ve confirmed ovulation was on CD12, but usually I ovulate on CD13-14. I didnt track my cycle the time it was 24 days so no clue what happened then, but I generally have an LP of about 13 days, so I’m guessing I may have O’d on CD11 that time.

Cycles are usually 24-26 days. I usually get a positive OPK on days 9-10 although I’ve gotten it as early as CD8 a few times.

amanda1988 :   MsPlucky :  Thank you so much. Yes they are boy/girl and I’ve just been booked in for my induction in 4 weeks. Trust me, I still haven’t gotten over the shock – sometimes I find myself awake at night thinking ‘how the hell did this happen??’. My grandfather was a twin, but still … never did I expect it in the least!
