I would temp the next cycle just to see how you O in relation to the opks. I often O the same day as my +opk. It’s always a quick turnaround for me. I imagine it varies person to person!

What time did you last test on CD 13?  Or earlier 14?  If you only did it once a day you might have missed the beginning of the surge and caught it at the end. I’ve had that happen before that I caught it at the end and figured I O’d around 12 hours later so not a lot of notice. (I can tell by the O pains, change in CM and cervix positioning).  Temping does give you a good indication of when O happens due to the temp rise.. If you want to keep using OPK’s when you are getting close test twice a day.

strawberrybee9:  I’m in a simlar boat this month — EWCM for the last 4 days (super early at CD 7-11) but no positive OPK (which I just started yesterday based on the recommendation of my kit). Last month I got a definitely positive OPK on CD15 but don’t remember having EWCM for so many days prior (granted I was new to all this so wasn’t checking every day nor did I quite understand what I was checking yet). So I’m so confused what is going on. We’ve been BDing just in case because of the EWCM but, like, is my body just gearing up super early? Or did it already happen super early and I missed it? Or is my body just playing tricks on me and I’m not going to ovulate at all this month? It’s so tough when you’re new to charting and don’t have a whole lot of historical data yet to go off of.
