Maybe, maybe not. Most women O 24-48 hours after the first + OPK. Sometimes as early as 12 hours after + OPK or as late as 72 hours though, Plus the egg can live up to 12 hours after O. Say you’re on the early end, that’s still 12 hours until O, then the lifetime of the egg. You may not be out. FX.

@IUrebekah3RT:  do you only BD during a positive OPK ?  I’d try to start haging sex EOD or at leases few days a week during your entire cycle not just your window or when u get a smiley. If possible.

I agree with BellaDee.  As soon as AF leaves the building, DH and I are at it every other day.  We are never caught by surprise that way despite never knowing when O is coming in advance.  And it’s worked to get me pregnant 7 times now.  🙂

Sure, that’s possible. With both, the advanced as well as the regular one your are measuring your luteinizing hormone (LH) surge. Following the LH surge, your oocyte  will be released into the uterine tube, where it will then be available to be fertilized by sperm. Ovulation then marks the end of the follicular phase of the ovarian cycle and the start of the luteal phase.

The advanced test also measures your estrogen surge; estrogen is present in your body throughout your cycle, just prior to ovulation you may have an “estrogen surge” – a marked increase in the presence of estrogen. The increase of estrogen facilitates the ferning patterns in your saliva. An estrogen surge or ovulation may not occur in all cycles for all women. Intensity and duration of the estrogen as well as LH surge may vary among women.

Btw This was my response to your other post!

@IUrebekah3RT:  If I were you I would just keep on trying tonight and in the next days….you never know…

The advanced one must have either detected an increase in LH in comparison to the day before (even though actually at 6 am one would expect that your LH levels would be rather low…- but you always had tested at 6 am?).


Then, there’s many reasons why the wondfo (never used that one before) or the regular ones could be negative…did you drink water beforehand…then all those tests are not really quantitative….so what’s your LH baseline level???


So how would YOUR LH surge look on a wondfo; every woman is different and you might not have a “huge” LH surge detectable on the wondfo. How did the wondfo test look like last month?

Regarding the the regular test…I am not sure if you can just start using it in the middle of the cycle…as far as I understand it measures a baseline of LH and then determines once there is a LH surge…so if you start measuring during your LH surge…therefore poor test had to be negative…every woman has a different baseline.

But in general, yes maybe just start BD every second/third day starting from day 10 just to be sure! 🙂







Good luck!
