@SJ77:  What KateByDesign said. Test it with your first urine of the morning, when LH level is most concentrated. Some people can have short fertile window, so I suggest that when you see your first OPK+ read, test again 6-10 hours later. When I first see the dark test line in the morning, I test again that night just to make sure I’m still fertile.

@SJ77:  FW= Fertility Week    BFP=Big Fat Positive, as in pregnancy test.

I think this website will be helpful to you in using this site: http://wiki.weddingbee.com/Abbreviations

Mucinex (or Robitussin) is claimed to have an active ingredient that loosens mucus, including CM, making it better for sperm travel. With this the sperm can easily and effectively travel to the cervix and voila conception!

@SJ77:  It took us five months. I used an OPK for the first time the month we conceived! Good luck to you, hang in there! Like other people have said, two months is no time at all.

CD = Cycle Day.  CD1 = the first day of your period.

@SJ77:  I am not a good example! I bought the First Response kind, it was about $20-$25, I can’t remember exactly. There were six? tests. I started testing on cycle day 10 and had SUCH a faint test line I tested again on cycle day 12, then 14 so as not to waste tests. I got a slightly darker line on cycle day 14, then tested again on day 15, line was slightly lighter. Then darker again on day 16 but not NEARLY as dark as control, then lighter on day 17, then I was out of tests. I got excited about the kinda dark one on day 16 and we had sex that night. Leading up to that, we’d been having sex every other day anyways, just in case. I got pregnant that cycle, but I’m not sure how much the tests really helped….it was nice to have an idea and to have sex twice in two days at what seemed like the right time (day 15 AND 16). Anyway, I understand not wanting to waste money on tests but I would recommend testing at least once a day, if not twice. It’s not really worth it otherwise, I think, even though it did happen to work for me. If I hadn’t gotten pregnant that month I would have bought more tests and definitely followed the directions more closely! Good luck to you!

Also, if you don’t want to spend a bunch of money on OPK, you probably don’t need to. With a very regular cycle of 28 days it is fairly straightforward when your fertile window is. I would have sex every other day from cycle day 10 to 20 and that should do it, maybe a couple every days around day 14 if you have the time and energy. My cycle varied from 24 to 31 days so I wanted to pinpoint when I ovulated a bit better.
