I have pretty severe aching in my ovaries, but I tend to get the pain mostly a few days before 'O' and the day of, but sometimes it persists

Don't feel bad, I didn't get to an RE until I was 44 but mostly because the ones remotely near me wouldn't take me due to my AMA.

OK, that makes sense. I gave up OPK's when I dropped the cash for 3 months and it didn't do me any good. I, too, seem to have a drop in temp right before I O, so I feel it's more reliable - and it's FREE!

I have a first appt with an RE on Wednesday (I know - why did I wait this long? I have been seeing a holistic doc instead, oh well...)

Anyway, I guess she'll give me the run down on combining tools like this.

Thanks for the info!

Susan is right, the +OPK comes before you ovulate and so can the O pain, so don't quit yet!

Elizabeth, temping will confirm O AFTER it has occurred, the OPKs give you advance warning that it is about to occur. OPKs without temping are not always reliable since you can surge more than once before you release that egg. BUT, OPKs are valuable to give you warning so you don't miss the window, since temping can't usually tell you ahead of time. I say usually because some women like myself generally have a dip in temp just before O, but not everyone gets that, and for those who do it doesn't happen every month and can be thrown off by something like a sore throat. I only used OPKs one month, they were given to me, just too expensive for me. Susan, or anyone else, if I got any of this wrong be sure to pipe up!

It's just another piece of data that helps put the whole picture together. I think if you are BDing EOD it's probably useful then too as to timing, especially if you have established a predictable pattern between your surge and temp rise.
