Um, if you got a positive this morning, you should be BDing right now. Many ladies though only have a positive for a short time on actual O day. If you are one of those, it’s a bummer, but you’ve already missed most of your FW. The best days to BD for conception are the 3 days before O and on O (also throw in the day after, just in case you O later than it looks).  This is why keeping track of your CM is also really helpful. 

Good luck! FX its your month.

Typically you ovulate anywhere from 12 hours to 36 hours from a positive OPK so it’s best to start BD as soon as it’s positive because you want to make sure you hit at least 1 day before O and O day.

I tend to ovulate at least 48 hours after my first positive opk. This cycle it looks like I didn’t ovulate until at least three days after my first positive opk, which is annoying, as Darling Husband is super stressed at the moment, so cant really do BD every day on demand. FF site seems to be down at the moment, or I’d post a pic of my chart, but look’s like I’ll only hit O-1 or O-2 this month 🙁

@MademoiselleL:  I didn’t say that. I said many ladies get their positive on their actual O date – not all – including myself. I got a + 2 days before and had -s in between.
