Hi,
I am using OPKs for the first time this month to help pin point ovulation so I can have Progesterone testing done. However, my "data" is confusing me. I have not had a positive OPK yet, but had fertile type CF CD 10-13. I feel dry now and have had a slight temperature shift. I should have a better idea about my temp shift tomorrow, as I spent the last 2 nights camping at 45 degrees in the morning.

Thanks for the help!

yeah, right now it looks like you did O on cd12, but if you were camping it could have effected your temps!

It sure looks like you o'ed. You might be one of those people who need to check the OPK strip twice a day to catch it. Were your strips totally neg (only the control line showing up) or did you have some faint test line showing? I mean if you checked on day 13 and had a faint test line with the control line, if you had checked later on that day or early day 14 you possibly would have had a dark test line, positive OPK.

Bleh. I would probably scratch this month due to the camping trip and try again next cycle doing OPK twice a day.

Good luck

Pretty sure I Oed at some point. I'm back at home this morning and my temp was up to 98.7. While taking the OPKs it seemed like my line was darker the longer I held my urine. I used the Answer OKPs with 20 strips and did take tests twice a day a few times. Sometimes my line looked nearly dark enough. Well, I guess I'll send my chart to the nurse this morning and see if she will still want to do the Progesterone tesing.

Thanks for your support!

I had an ultrasound this afternoon and ovulation was confirmed. Not sure if I'll be able to complete my testing this cycle though as I can't say for sure which day I ovulated.

I would have to say FF is really close... cd12 or cd13... but that's my totally unprofessional opinion.
