    @roxy821:  i didn’t realize you only tested once!  They say you often surge in the afternoon.  I only got 1 positive the month I OPKd and it was in the afternoon.  I O’d by the next morning.

    I also tested 2-3 times a day, because I’m crazy. Once when I just woke up with FMU, once around 4 or 5, and once right before bed. I didn’t always make it 4 hours without peeing, though, sometimes I would test with a 2 or 3 hour hold. Both times we got BFPs I had gotten the +OPK with FMU, but I know it’s more common to get them in the afternoon. I just had a stockpile of the cheap Wondfo’s, so I used them often.

    i use them once a day with FMU and so far I got a positive each month.

    one more thing: not sure if it makes a difference but so far i’ve only used the clearblue digital (smiley) tests. i think it says on their package that you can use them in the morning. so that is what i’m doing.

    good luck.

    The month I got pregnant I was using them twice a day, and used the smileys. Before that, I had been using the regular ones with the line, and was only testing once a day.

    I test only once a day.  My RE require that I use OPKs(ClearBlue).  Now I tested @ 5pm when I got home from work and I always caught my surges.  But I also track my CM and have ovulation cramps.

    One morning, one afternoon – one night if I think I’m CLOSE to O-ing.

    I use 1/day most of the time and go to 2/day if I’m having other signs of ovulation such as EWCM and a high, soft cervix.

    I used 2 per day once I knew O was getting close, one with FMU (I know that it’s not recommended but I just did it “for fun” ha) and one at around 6pm with a 4 hour urine hold. I would usually catch a surge on the evening one and get another positive the next morning as well.
