@fsowife:  it can happen – an OPK just measures the level of LH in your system, which is the last hormone to go through before O, but doesn’t confirm O.

Last cycle I had a +OPK on CD18, with a temp rise on CD19, but then it dropped back. I then actually Ovulated on CD28 (with a strange string of +OPKs  for 5 days in a row leading up to it). I don’t think it is common, but it can happen. I attributed mine to a highly stressful weekend and a sinus infection. Here is my chart if you are interested (the second one down).

Hope it is more predictable next time around!!!

My body has done many a false surge even with a 1-3 day temp jump only to not complete it until much later.  I don’t opk since they just simply don’t work for me (oh the joys of PCOS – for me at least).  I’m glad you are temping too so that you could see that your ovulation didn’t happen until later!

@fsowife:  some people swear by FMU, my only warning is that I tend to still get a +OPK on the day OF my temp rise, which Fertility Friend is too late to get pregnant

I assume it’s leftover LH that’s been in my system since the day before. Not sure if this happens for everyone though…  but I think afternoon is best. that’s what most OPK tests seem to suggest.
