Ovulation Question Maverick's Mommy 1 child; Rochester, New Hampshire 2224 posts

I took an ovulation test yesterday morning and got a "peak" fertility reading (not just high if that makes a difference). We had sex around midnight last night. Should we have sex again today? Would I have been too late having sex last night? Help! :)

I would! I'm just trying to figure out this whole ovulation ttc thing myself but I believe you're fertile a few days before and maybe a day after ovulation if I'm understanding my period tracker correctly! And hey if not then what would extra sex hurt? Lol

Yes have sex today too. The opk detect the surge of hormones right before you ovulate. So you could actually ovulate today.

I feel like I'm getting sooo stressed out over this! With my son we had sex on New Years Eve and I happened to start ovulation testing that next morning (and got a surge) and we didn't have sex again that cycle and I got pregnant.



This time around I decided to start ovulation testing a week before I was "due" to ovulate and got a surge a few days in (Saturday morning). We had sex Saturday night / Sunday morning around midnight. Today my ovulation test was still positive. I want a positive test sooo bad, but I am worried that we missed ovulation.

Are you using FMU?



I would BD again.



Yes opk stress me out. I took off this month from using them.

I've been using FMU ... today marked day three of "high" fertility. I stopped on the way home and bought the two fertile day pack of ovulation tests from Clearblue ... I've been using the four day. I couldn't help but test with it this afternoon and it was positive ... then I took my four day one and that was PEAK ... I guess today is the day?

You are not supposed to use FMU for opk's. I would just keep bd'ing to be safe.

The pamphlet says to use FMU? Today was the first time I used afternoon urine and both tests were positive (and the one was peak). The last three days were all high fertility ... I'm so confused. I feel like It'll happen soon ... my b**bs are soooo sore!

Well usually you get best results with opk in the afternoon. But its not uncommon to get a few positive. Just keep bd'ing. Oh and sore b**bs good sign you are ovulating.
