Ok, ladies, I have a FF question: So I put the positive OPK for the morning of CD 16 back into my chart and FF moved my CH from CD 15 to CD 17!
Any thoughts on when you ladies think I O’d? The same sort of thing happened last cycle, I think my surge is always Friday night, and this time I used digitals so I got smileys both Friday night and Sat morning, I just don’t know! I want to figure this out for next cycle so we can time BD well.
Background: I’ve also had thermometer issues this month, I lost mine, got a different brand backup, and was finally able to order the same brand which seems to have gotten my temps back on track as of this am.
Added a poll because who doesn’t love a poll on Friday?

I think it did this because OPK strips detect the LH surge that comes before ovualtion. You typically ovulate 24-36 hours after your LH surge.
P.S. Your chart for this month looks similar to mine at least after ovulation.

You are fine! OPK detect your surge before actual O, this is confirmed with your temp rising, so FF moving your CH totally makes sence. FX

@hoogirl05: It has happened to me. I think what FF is trying to do is adjust according to your positive OPKs. Last cycle I had two + OPK in a row like you and FF changed my O day to the day of my second +OPK. This cycle I only got one +OPK and like other bees have mentioned, it confuses FF to have more than one. In my understanding, I would say you O’d during or after your second + OPK. I think FF is right on in selecting day 17. Good luck!

I am glad I am not the only one who always questions my ch! I have started to think I need to learn to trust FF. I know that OPK are supposed to detect your surge before ovulation, but FF put my CH on the day of ovulation, so I don’t know what it is doing!

@onyx81: I need to learn to trust FF too! It always correctly predicts my O date even when I’m suspicious!
