How long after positive OPK do you ovulate?

Jun 3rd, 2012, 20:33 PM   #1
 
I had a positive OPK yesterday (Sat) and my BBT dropped this morning - how soon after my positive test will I ovulate? Is it usually 1-2 days later?
We DTD thursday, Saturday and today. Should we BD again tomorrow or will I have ovulated by now? I've had some ovulation pains in the past few days, EWCM and my cervix position was high and open. I've just checked my cervix position and it is now low, still open and I had a few specks of blood when I wiped. What does this mean?

I would say that yes you have ovulated - the specks of blood can be from where the egg ruptures from the folicle.

The cycle I conceived my daughter we only DTD on the day of my positive opk hadn't done for days before and didn't for days after - and my cervix also went low the day after my postive test.

good luck

The day of the temp drop after the pos OPK is likely to be the ovulation day. Good luck x

The general guidance indicates that you ovulate approx 12 to 36 hrs after the surge (so when the opk first turns positive)

Combined with a temp drop you may have found your ov date

On the month i got pregnant we dtd on cd 12, 14, 15 and had pos opk on afternoon cd 13.

Good luck!

Thanks guys - if I ovulated last Sunday, I am now 6dpo. I think my luteal phase is usually about 9 days. My BBT was steadily rising after the OV drop but today it has gone From 36.93 to 36.61. If you are pregnant does your temp remain high? I'm nearing the end of my cycle now and have some period type aches so think I may be unlucky this time boo

Oops, so much for trying to remain calm - I've just been doing some Internet searching!! It could be that the temp drop and aching feelings could be implantation, the timing sounds right at 6dpo. Grrrrr, why can't I just relax about it! Oh well, I should know one way or another in the next few days I guess....

Good luck katkin, im 11 dpo and having the usual type period pains, pretty sure I'm out for this month and told the OH there's no chance but secretly I keep thinking there's the tinest glimmer of hope...
