so last month was first month using OPKs. I had ovulation pain and a positive “peak OPK” (solid smiley) on CD10 last month.
this month i got got “high fertility” (flashing smiley) on CD8 and peak on CD9. No pains and no ewcm.
Meanwhile, my ava bracelet said based on my recent temps (my first cycle using it) said they were pushing OUT my fertile window to start tomorrow with ovulation on Mon?
lastly, i used a Wondfo opk strip and i cant tell if it shows Peak or High… first time using these as well! I’m attaching the pic below if anyone can weigh in?
sorry in advance if im not supposed to post these strip pics!!

The OPK you posted looks very close to positive, if it’s not actually positive. Temps can’t really predict your fertile window, they just confirm O after it’s already happened. What CD are you now? Even without EWCM you might be very close to O, so go ahead and BD. FX!

Agreed, the OPK looks positive, or very close to.
As for Ava, you need to give it at least one cycle to start learning you. I’d rely on the OPK tests for this month while Ava records your temps, and just don’t take any predictions or data too much to heart just yet.

Here is my chart w temps from Fertility Friend. Don’t the temps look like my ovulation happened on CD9? The dip is cd8 and then rises…

I would just BD around both the Ava and the OPK. Eff it.
That OPK looks + to me.

highstrungmomtobe : You don’t have enough temps to show if you ovulated yet. Like PP said, Ava will need more cycles of data before it can really predict your fertile window, and even then it’s totally possible to O way earlier or later for no real reason. So just keep BD when you’re seeing high/peak fertility on the OPKs and keep going until you get a sustained temp shift (3 temps 0.10 degrees higher than the last 6).

highstrungmomtobe : Once you get a positive OPK like the one you posted, you should ovulate within 24-72 hours so get to BDing for the next three days! 🙂

highstrungmomtobe : Ava needs at least one cycle to learn your body before it becomes more accurate. That OPK looks positive, if not close. Keep testing them tomorrow and later tonight if you are able to and get BDing. Usually O happens within 12-72 hours after a positive OPK, and FF will confirm those temps after three consecutive temps of being higher.
