The same thing is happening to me right now. I have had three days of positive ovulation tests… My typically ovualtion date was 3 days ago… and I am still getting positives.

Not really sure what is going on. I Googled a few times and there were answers all over the place to why I have gotten so many positive OPKs in a row. I am just going to BD again tonight!

mrsl3un9 :  Ok when you get your peak with the CBD you stop testing and you don’t start again.  When you buy a new kit and start using it mid cycle the first day will automatically show low fertility the first day no matter what your levels and then show flashing etc, the next days based on rising hormone levels.  That’s why you stop testing as soon as you get your peak!  You will confuse youself all over the map if you don’t.  You can’t use a new kit mid cycle because those tests keep the data from each of your tests when measuring, new kits don’t have all the previous information from your last kit.  That’s why the solid smiley stays on there for 48 hours so you can’t keep testing.  My guess is, you’ve already ovulated (but that can’t be confirmed unless you temp).  

Youre right your cycles are a little on the long side, but maybe you are one who has a longer LP.  Mine are about the same length (unmedicated), but I ovulate super late and have a very short LP.

Exactly what happy2bee said. The clearblue ones aren’t like other ovulation tests.

What PPS said…

With regards to charting.. should you not get your BFP this cycle, next cycle make sure to chart before you think you will ovulate and for at least 3 days afterwards.  What you are looking for is the temp shift relative to your own body.  It helps to do it at the same time everyday to help get into the habit of it, but if data and temping isn’t your thing then it can be a pain!  I personally like it because I’m a data nerd, but also befre we were TTC I could use it to fairly accurately predict AF and could be prepared with fem products!

mrsl3un9 :  I don’t know much about those OPKs (I prefer wondfos) but you can also gear up to O (get a positive OPK) and then not actually O.  Only temping will confirm.  Even if you have the longest luteal phase possible (16 days) that means the earliest you would ovulate with a 37 day cycle is CD 21.  If you DID ovulate with these recent positives, your cycle will be noticeably shorter than 37 days. 

And your temps alone (what you have now- 3 days worth) cannot cannot confirm O either.  You still need to record a temperature shift, which I think you already know.  Some people run hotter or colder than others.  I would agree that above 97.7 is post-O for most people but that’s not necessarily true for everyone.  And it also depends how you’re temping- vagnially or orally.  That is probably post-O for most women temping orally but probably pre-O if you’re temping vaginally.  So if you get to next cycle, make sure you start temping once your period ends every day.
