Ok this is month 9 of TTC #2.... Have had a few chemicals thus far... Anyway AF ended on Sunday. I tested today for LH surge and it's positive which means O in the next 24 - 36 house.. Is that even possiable? The ovulation app I have on my phone says not til next wednesday....

In addition I am actually still spotting today from the last AF... Anyone have any ideas what's going on??

I haven't but I did do another OPK today and it again was much brighter than the test line. I talked to my OB/GYN and she said this would be day 11 in my cycle since AF started on the 19th. She said sometimes it just happens early and to "get busy" lol since we are trying... Well here's to hoping!!

I know you said that you had a blood test BEFORE AF arrived.

Oh, no – that is a HUGE misconception (no pun intended hahaha) you can absolutely get AF without O’ing. Getting AF is no guarantee that you’re ovulating. One of two ways to figure that out. You can either chart or get your Progesterone about a week before AF is due.

Wow! Well, I would BD EOD just in case it really does mean O is around the corner. Sometimes our bodies get ready to O for some reason and then don't. This has happened a couple of times to some women I know and they end up getting a second surge further on in their cycle but there's no way to make sure when and if you actually O'd without temping. But if you're REALLY trying to get pg I would BD as much as I could until either I KNOW I O'd or until AF shows!

I know it really seems odd to me too. Yeah the "surge line" is just as dark as the test line (actually a bit more) which according to clear blue easy means the surge is 24 - 36 hours out... I did go in and had a blood pregnancy test this month (just before AF) becuase I have to take pain meds for my AF due to horriable cramps and they always make sure before they fill them..

Wow that would put O at CD 7 or at latest CD 8. That is REALLY early and it makes me suspect something else might be going on as O'ing that early is very rare. Are you sure AF was indeed AF and that you're not actually pregnant? Is it possible you suffered another chemical? If O is not around the corner SOMETHING is making that OPK +. I don't mean to patronize you, but are you sure the OPK was +? Sometimes they can be tricky to read!
