@Ugoob:  I’ve only used OPK’s one cycle, and didn’t really get a positive. So I defer to other ladies for this, but here’s my best guesses.

on what day should I begin peeing on my ovulatuion strips? I’d guess maybe CD8? How irregular is irregular?

How often should I do it a day? I pee on one two to three times per day. One with FMU, one around 2-3, and one before bed. I know, excessive…lol..

And when should I stop peeing on the strips? TRY TO WAIT UNTIL YOU GET A POSITIVE. I say that in capitals in hopes of me following my own advice – I so wish I had stuck with it. I had a weird cycle where I thought I O’ed and hadn’t actually.

You should get a positive on an OPk strip 24-36 hours before you actually ovulate. So if you get a positive on a strip you should have sex until it goes negative. It is important to note that just because you get a positive on a strip does not mean you WILL ovulate, just that you’re body is hearing up to ovulate. The only way to know for sure if you ovulate is to start charting your temps every day.
