I usually got my temp spike 2 days after postive OPK, but it’s possible to have a positive opk and not ovulate too.  I’ve ovulated as late as 75 days twice coming off the pill.  It’s also possible your cycle ends up anovulatory and you just start a bleed without ovulation too.   I think the theory with cycles that are just *too* long is that the lining is “old” and not as optimal anymore too, so kick starting another cycle restarts the lining.  And starting a new cycle allows your estrodiol levels to drop back to baseline and signal the FSH to procduce a follicle.  As your estrodiol rises in the cycle, your FSH production goes down, so in a long or anovulatory cycle, it seems there might just be some race condition between the two, not enough e2 to signal a release of the egg, but maybe enough so that the FSH is not stimulating the growth anymore.  So inducing a period it like a restart to bring the e2 back to baseline and start over.   If you do any baseline fertility blood work, you would need ot do it on day 3 of your cycle anyways.  Progesterone is typically checked 7dpo.  And you can check thyroid any time.

AllieBee12 :  I am having somewhat similar issues. For me the next step is to ask my doctor about clomid.

Are you temping with your mouth? That always made my chart wonky. I started temping vaginally and was SO much more accurate!

I’m not currently ttc, but my experience has always been to best of my knowledge that my ovulation/fertile time happens at the last possible moment or at the begining of my monthly bleeding. Doens’t make a whole lot of sense to many I know, but that seems to be the way of it.

I could have written your post! I just had a super dark positive opk last night and have had somewhat dark but not quite positive OPK’s for the last 2 weeks! On CD71 today, so frustrating. Good luck, I hope you are ovulating!
