I am a 28 day cycle girl, but havent been looking at my cycles since this is our first month TTC. I was thinking I should start testing on day 10?? Also once you get your postive, do you BD right away? or wait 24 hours? thaniks!

I know for a 23 day cycle to start on CD 6 and for a 26 day cycle to start on CD 9...so CD 10 sounds about right for you. I've been using OPKs for three cycles just to get a picture of what's going on. We are putting all the research to use next month . But from what I have read, if you wait 24 hours you may miss it all together. The sperm can live for days...so why wait?! Good luck!

According to FF and everything else I have read the 3 days before O the day of O and sometimes the day after are the firtile days. So if you haven't BD for a day or two when you get +OPK then definately gett'er done! GL!
