@MissCurlyQ: Woohoo for your +ve OPK 🙂 I find if I’ve been drinking alcohol (more than the usual v.small glass of wine with dinner), my temp’s are higher the next morn. I also live in the UK, and the weather can be 20 degrees one day, and then 5 degrees the next (Spring is a bit funny here), and that also messes with my temps.
The only thing worse than an empty chart at the beginning of a cycle is spotting at the end of a cycle, knowing b vitamins and rrlt etc aren’t working, and having to wait to start again. I’m thinking of going to my doctor’s and begging if she’ll do a progesterone day 21 test this cycle (in this country they normally demand that you try for a year before doing any tests <sigh>).
I know how you feel – my first cycle I peed on fertility montior sticks and opks for about 18 days, then gave up – don’t think I even ovulated that cycle, so waste. Am trying to temp now, as I think it’s a better indicator, tho my temps don’t seem to rise until a few days after the first positive / peak, which is annoying – all the BD can be exhausting!!
Sorry about your BFN. Maybe still to early. In terms of POAS, I think just balance your desire to know, with potential reaction to another BFN. I’ve peed on so many tests in the three cycles I’ve gone through that it’s making me feel a bit crazy.
FMU is the most concentrated. However you can simulate the effect by not drinking much and holding it in for four hours before testing. This is what I used to do with OPK’s when I did them in the eve too.
