Anyone have any experience or ideas about best time to use an ovulation test strip when the tester isn't normally awake at the suggested time (10am - 2pm)?  I've read that sleeping during non-traditional times d/t circadian rhythm disorders or shift work can change when hormones peak, but I don't know how that might work, and haven't had any luck finding the answer.  

TIA!

I don't have advice relating to your specific situation- just wanted to chip in with my 2c. Leading up to O my OPK's show a gradual increase in darkness over a period of a few days, then after will fade off over two days, so for me it wouldn't matter what time of day I tested because I can still see a trend, I just test the same time of day and always with a 4hr+ hold. Good luck!

Thanks, I do see several days getting darker then lighter, but I never seem to be darker than the control line - w/charts showing ovulation based on consistent temping. 

 

… and then there was today - three lines… silly internet cheapie, go home, you're drunk! hahaha!

 

Thanks again!
