<p>OPK - what time of the day? [cross post in TTC]</p>
<p> </p>
<p>A friend suggested I try using OPK, cause it worked for her. I read through the directions and don't see anything about the best time of the day to test.</p>

<p>The instructions in mine say to avoid the early morning and that time doesn't matter as much as doing it at the same time every day but that 2 - 3pm is optimal. It also says to reduce your liquid consumption for 2 hours before testing.</p>

<p>I actually prefer to test twice a day, I don't have much of a surge and I think I'd miss it sometimes if I only test once a day.  So I aim for 12-1pm (around lunch), and then again before bed.  But I've also heard that around 2pm is the best time.  HTH!</p>

<p>I test twice a day using the Wondfo strips. I typically test around noon-2 and again sometime between 4-7pm depending on my schedule. I find that I get a stronger positive later in the evening.</p>

<p>I had heard that it should be done between 2pm and 10pm, but I always get my clearly positive opk in the morning (first pee).Later in the day it isn't as positive - I must surge earlier in the day,or perhaps the night before?<br>

<p>The dollar store ones say 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. is the ideal time frame. I also have found testing twice a day to be more helpful.</p>
