Share with others how you get through the "wait to O" period of your cycle. For some this is a short wait and can sometimes catch us off guard but for others with a long cycle, it can be a frustrating wait.

thanks Vickie!

What CD did you start testing this time? CD 5 When do you test? at 2 p.m. What CD are you on today? CD 9 How long was your last cycle? 23 days (but my 'usual cycle' was 25 days...so I 'could' O on CD 11? I am waiting for my cycle to get back to normal after D&C....so I have no idea when I will O now?)

.I started testing early, because I wanted to get the hang of how to use them.....but stupid me, dropped the digital dispenser to read my pee sticks!

OPK's detect a surge in the hormone LH (lutinizing hormone) LH signals the ovary to release a mature egg. Ovulation will usually occur 24-48 hours after the peak

I'm not sure if I address my question to the top of the thread for everyone to get it? I need help figuring out, OPK's?

okay....I have a question for y'all? I started the OPK's, but they are showing negative. I 'think' I should O about this time of month. If they continue to show up negative (even if I think I should O), does it mean I didn't O, at all?

I've never done OPK's before? And also, if I don't O & we try, I won't get pg. right?

Mel, I hope that OPK turns super dark today or tomorrow. Glad to hear the hot flashes are subsiding. Hang in there...

Michele, Boo on AF!

CD2 here. Hoping I O this month too. I don't think I did last month which sort of pisses me off considering the opportunities we took advantage of but oh well. I'm in it to win it baby....

Cd15 today and another neg OPK. I know that it is still early, but I am having a hard time believing that I am going to O this cycle. I am trying to stay optamistic , but I am just not "feeling" it. If I don't O in the next 6 days, then this cycle of clomid is a bust. I will have to decide if I want to wait and see if I O on my own or start the progesterone to induce another cycle. I guess I will cross that bridge when I come to it. Darn..it is just so frustrating to see all those neg OPK followed by all those neg HPT. On a positive note,
