<p>I mentioned this in another thread but I wanted to address it directly.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm 9dpo and I took an OPK today and yesterday, both pos. Both times I was pregnant I did get a pos opk, but not til the same day as my BFP HPT. So I'm confused. I've definitely already o'd. Temps are good. So I'm baffled.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So my question is, if you've had a pos opk after O, were you pg or not?</p>
<p>Thanks. :)</p>

I got a pos opk at 9dpo. I didn't get my bfp until 12dpo. However, I wasnt testing for preg bc I thought I was gearing up to o late, so I might have gotten my bfp sooner.<br>
Best wishes

I read your other post, too... you had 2 pos opks? I think you're pregnant. at least, Ive never heard of more than one pos opk post o without preg...<br>
Got everything crossed for you.<br>

<p>usually to get a pos OPK as an HPT you would need a lot of HCG in your system - enough that I would think you would get a BFP on an HPT. And 9dpo would be super early for either.<br>
Are you sure your ovulated when you thought? Or maybe OPKs are faulty?</p>

<p>I used OPKs for two months and both cycles got pos OPKs for about 8 days after O but only in the morning (I was testing 2x per day).  The first time I got excited because I thought that meant I had to be pregnant since that is what I read on the internet, but for me it was not the case.  I'm doing some more extensive tests with the doctor to see if I have any issues since I haven't gotten pregnant for a year (so in my case it could be a hormone issue?).  Don't want to be a downer, but that is my experience.  There is a lot of info on the internet though that says many people get a + OPK after O due to pregnancy, so hopefully that is the case for you!</p>

<p>Either way, I would definitely be bd'ing again!  It's happened before where a woman ovulated twice a week or more apart.  There was a woman in the news who this happened to.  She was carrying twins conceived 3 weeks apart, but I understand this is very rare. </p>

<p>Yeah I've heard of that!! Super weird. Although I think if I did O twice I've missed that second egg already.</p>

A positive OPK only means you are gearing up to ovulate - it is very common for some women to gear up and then not Ovulate...so then the body tries again - hence getting 2 postive OPKs (or more!) in 1 cycle. Unless you were temping to confirm ovulation took place, there is no guarantee that a pos OPK means you O'd.<br>
Good luck!<br>
