i never start OPK testing before day 10, but that’s because i usually ovulate between days 14-16. when i do start testing, i do it twice a day.

 

 

really though… i think you should use cheaper OPKs.

 

 

Here, you can get 100 OPKs and 20 HPT for $30: http://www.amazon.com/Combo-Ovulation-Pregnancy-Test-Strips/dp/B001E1Y1X6/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1364955866&sr=8-4&keywords=wondfo+ovulation+tests

I don’t think you need to worry. How long are your cycles, usually & when’s your aproximate temp shift? Do you have a chart link? I’d take 1 or 2 tests in the coming days and see if you get a positive. Your surge is probably going to happen fairly soon but this cycle is by NO MEANS a bust.

You’re fine if you typically have a ~28 day cycle!  Some people O as early as CD 10 (about 24 cycle days total) so the instructions recommend day 5 just to be safe (and so you buy more tests:)) I don’t O until CD 20 or so (34 total cycle days) so I didn’t start OPKs until CD 13-14 and it worked for me!

you should really start temping. it’s the most helpful and informative thing you can do while TTC.

then join fertility friend. easiest charting website (and phone app) ever. also, most of the girls here use it so you will be in good company.

@Pappy8:  I don’t ovulate until day 19 so starting my OPK’s on day 5 would be completely pointless. I would start on day 12 to be honest. I would test in the morning and in the evening to make sure you don’t miss your surge. I also second @rosworms:  suggestion to start temping and charting. Have you read Taking Charge of Your Fertility. The better educated you are the less stressful everything seems. This is our 10th cycle TTC, if you have any questions PM me 🙂
