Hello! I normally temp to track my cycles but sometimes my temp rise is post-o very subtle the first couple of days so I’ve doubled up with usking OPKs.
My OPK on CD14 was clearly positive:
My temperature rose a tiny bit the next day (0.1 degrees celsius) so I was suspecting that I Od (since this is the usual pattern with me). I wanted back up info so I used an OPK on CD15 in the morning and got this:
Is it positive? The test line is definitely lighter than the control line, unlike on CD14, but it’s still pretty close. I’m leaning towards considering it negative, but I’m not 100% sure.
I’m waiting on a few more days of temperatures to make any conclusions with that!

CD14 is positive CD15 is negative but just barely; I would guess O was in the afternoon/evening of CD14 and you still had a high amount of LH in your system that morning.

I don’t think CD 15 is positive, it appears there’s more dye in the control line than the test line. You can have a positive but still not O for 24-36 hrs, the OPK can even be negative on the day you O. A positive opk just means you will likely O in the next 12-36 hrs, no matter if your LH surge is short or not.
I guess what I’m saying is, not everyone O’s on the day of their positive OPK (but some do, myself included). A negative followed by a positive doesn’t mean you O’d on the positive day, it has to still be confirmed with 3 temps above the coverline.

Thanks so much for your help everyone!
Last cycle I got my positve OPK and the next day I had a temp rise. I wanted to monitor that this month to see if there was a pattern, but my temps were a bit wonky this cycle due to some restless sleep.
We BD’d in CD15 regardless 🙂 Thanks again!
