To OPK or not to OPK?

I used OPKs when TTC my DS and they worked out great. But, I've been charting my BBT since AF returned in November and my cycles are pretty regular with O on CD19 or CD21. So, though I want to be 100% sure we have good timing this month, I also want to relax and not stress. I can completely see myself obsessing over how long I held my pee, etc. Thoughts?

I'd just forget about the opk's - like you said, you're pretty consistent in O'ing so why add something else to worry about?

I had never used OPKs until this cycle.

Well, if you really want to be 100% sure (as opposed to maybe 90% sure) I'd use the OPKs. If you do decide to use them, I wouldn't even bother beginning to test until CD 18.
