Yes. You can have every single sign but may not release a follicle every month. It is very common to actually not ovulate every cycle.

You can try temping but even there are inaccuracies with that. I know people will disagree with me but temping doesn’t work for everyone so the only for sure sign to know that you did ovulate is a progesterone level check. I had + opk every month we were TTC but I was not ovulating for many of them, yet I had the CM, the temps and cramping. What cycle day are you and how long are your cycles? You may ovulate later than the standard cycle.

Yea you could still be early, hang in there! One thing you can do if you have enough strips and patience is do an opk twice a day to make sure you dont miss your surge. I know some bees did this and if they didn’t they would have missed it. Dont worry it is confusing in the beginning but at the end you’ll feel as if you have a masters degree in TTC! It’s ridiculous the amount of information out there!

Yea the lines can be hard to read. If it’s similar or darker it’s positive. Usually when you get your first +, you will ovulate in the next 12-24 hrs.

You can gear up to ovulate, but not do it, then ovulate about 2 weeks later.  Look for very slippy cervical fluid, especially when you wipe.  I wait for that before busting out the OPKs.
