O and OPK

Hi everyone!


My DH and I are planning to start ttc next month and we want to try for a boy...I have read "the book" by Shuttles and bought Answer OPK's and I started using them today as a practice to get ready for next month. As you know, the book recommends using an OPK twice a day, so I am doing it at 11am and 9pm and just writing down the results.


I am not taking my temp and I haven't noticed any CM even though I am 14 days past AF (my cycles are long though, about 34 days apart). SO, my question is, when I see on the OPK that my LH has surged, how long do we wait before BD'ing? How long after the LH surge do you actually ovulate?? Would we BD

Thanks for the info! I know this sounds crazy, but I never seem to see any CM??? Of course, I haven't paid as close attention to it as I am now and I know there are "dry days" but I am 9 days past AF and no CM yet...that is strange, right?!
