Are you temping also? It’s really hard to know exactly when you’re Oing with just OPKs. The OPKs only tell you that you’re likely to ovulate in the next 24-48 hours. A temp shift is what will confirm ovulation.

From what I’ve read and in my own experience, you typically ovulate 12-48 hrs after the last positive opk, so I would guess tomorrow!

i always get confused. if a positive test means you will ovulate 12-48 hours later, wouldnt it stay positive through the next day. 

i usually get two days of positives and by the morning of the third day it goes back to negative. So does that second day positive mean ovulation is occuring? 

i know this is all a guessing game without temping (i do temp, but not every month). But wouldnt the frist positive test be the one you’d want to base BDing off of.
