So I'm an admitted POAS addict and continue to take OPKs even after they are +ve until they come up -ve again. So I got my first +ve 3 days ago. Very obvious test line darker than control. DH and I DTD. Then I got another +ve yesterday which is pretty normal for me to get 2 days in a row (it was the same color so I figured LH going down). I had a temp dip yesterday and a significant temp ride this morning which makes me think I O'd yesterday. But today I'm still getting +ve OPKs (they are the same color as control). Why would that be? I'm concerned now that we didn't DTD on the right day. Can you still have a LH surge even after ovulation? Opinions please!!

It takes a little while for the LH surge to leave your body, so often women get positives after they actually ovulate.

I don't temp but I have a similar question. I've been getting postitive OPK's since CD 12 (I'm on CD 15 now) and this morning I noticed gobs of EWCM. Does that meaning I'm set to O today or that I already did it yesterday? I wasn't able to BD yesterday (but I did the day before, so I'm hoping that counts) but I for sure am going to do it today, but I want to know when I should start counting.

It could really go either way, you can get pos opk's after you O... you can get EWCM after you O... both will usually go away within a day or two after you O (though, sometimes not, ya know?) I say the one two days ago is good if it was yesterday, doing it today is good if its today or tomorrow.

Most times, I would get a + for less than 24 hours, and some times the test would only be + for about 4-5 hours. I did however have 2-3 cycles where the test would be + for 2-3 days. It could mean that you were still having a surge while the egg was being release and it could mean that your going to O a few hours or a day or 2 later than normal. Keep DTD and you'll be fine mama! I don't see how it could be a bad thing tho...
