Positive OPK with no bbt increase?
Mon, 12-10-2012 - 11:59pm

Hi everyone-

Usually, my bbt increases the day before my opk goes positive, but this month, bbt actually declined 1 day, then back to normal for 2 days. The day it declined, my opk was a faint positive, the next day, a darker positive. I'm not sure what's going on, so we're continuing to bd for the next few days - has anyone had a similar situation? I don't want to stop bd while there's still a chance...

You should get your +OPK before you ovulate so the temp should go up afterwards. What was it this morning? I'd keep BD until you get a rise :) You also could have geared up to O and not actually released the egg.

I usually get 2 poitive OPKs before I get a temp shift.  Everyones different.  I agree though that the temp shift should be after teh positive.  It is catching the LH surge right before your body releases the egg.
