I just started temping this month combined with using OPK’s and I ovulated 2 full days after my positive OPK! Which I was so glad to find out, because we’d always BD so much right before my positive OPK’s, then stop from being so tired— that we were really stopping at MINIMUM 2 days before I ovulated, sometimes up to 4 days before! I had no idea, I thought I’d ovulate at the latest, the next day following my OPK, but I didn’t!

so for me, at least 48 hours from my postive OPK.

Mine is usually either the next day, or the day after that.

12 to 48 hours is the general rule. Could be up to 72 hours.  I usually do about 12-24 hours from mine.  Once and awhile maybe 36 hours.

Mine comes very quickly. I usually get a positive OPK late afternoon one day,  go to bed that night, and have a temperature surge the next morning. so I’m either catching my LH surge at it’s end, or I ovulate within 6-12 hours of positive OPK.

beepee:  So far mine has been 2 days after a positive OPK. My OPK is usually slightly positive still the day after the first positive.

Think I’m the following day, so like 24 hours. I find OPKs difficult as they’re so open to interpretation.
