You should start OPKs earlier than CD 14, like CD 9 instead. She could be right. Ov pain could be a cyst and ov pain doesn’t mean ovulation by any means.

Good luck.

james79 :  I think you are right, but for the hell of it try using your OPKs earlier (maybe starting CD11) just to make sure it’s not earlier.  But I don’t see how you can have a positive OPK a week after you’ve already ovulated, unless I’m missing something (or unless you’re pregnant!).  And I would start temping anyway next cycle, then you won’t have to wonder which day it was.

james79 :  honestly I would trust the OPK. Your doctor is assuming you ovulate based on no info whatsoever- just an average for an average person. You have actual info (the OPK) to go off, not just an assumption. Maybe temping will give you some more “proof” to show her. Best of luck! You are right, I felt so differently about TTC once I actually started! Hang in there.

Definitely temp Bee! That way both you and your doctor will know what’s going on based on your own data, not just what should/could happen!
