I posted on another board but no responses and this seems to be the place to be!
Hey ladies.... I hope you dont mind me posting here but I have a question hoping to figure out what the end result is.
We havent started officially TTC- waiting till next monday. but I have been off BC since May and using OPKs to avoid. I tend to O late around 19-21. This cycle I started POAS around CD 16 to prep for O, and nada.... yesterday which was CD I got a Positive OPK and today as well( two in a row is normal for me). but around noon today I had some bright red bleeding and then spotted all day- red not pink or brown. Slightly heavy almost crampy feeling as well. Is it possible to spot from ovulation? I never.ever.have. I am wondering if I O'ed earlier and maybe its IB?? We dtd CD 14. Any one have any fun thoughts on this? I am guessing if its IB I would need to wait a few more days to test.
Update : I got BFN this AM but both this AM and tonight BLAZING BPF on OPKs... so that makes 3 nights in a row a positive OPK. Still pink spotting a couple of times tonight. Nothing heavy and not all day.
I had a tiny bit of spotting around O the cycle that I got pregnant with this baby, so I definitely think it's possible. Mine wasn't heavy though, just a few spots when I wiped. I'm thinking if you are getting a + OPK then it is probably not implantation bleeding, since the + OPK could indicate pregnancy, but not until around the time that you would get a + hcg. Maybe the bleeding around O will be lucky for you, like it was for me.

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
When I got preggo with my last, I had mid-cycle bleeding for 3 cycles in a row. I was bleeding every 14 days, on the dot. the length of bleed varied I had a hard time deciding which was AF and which was mid-cycle bleeding. So I bought an FRER brand OPK and started testing when I started spotting. My last "cycle" went like this: Spotting CD 1&2, Light Bleed CD 3-5, Spotting 6-9. Spotting CD 14-16. Pos OPK CD18. BFP HPT on CD 30. I STILL don't know what was going on back then.. but I figured my mid-cycle bleeding was unrelated to ovulating.. or I was actually having 14 day cycles, either oving early or short LP, or both.

Another full day of blazing positive OPKs... this mornings test didnt want to even do the control line, the test line was way darker. Hmmm off to get some HPTs tomorrow to try out- but 4 or 5 solid consistant days of positive OPKs seems very strange to me.
What if my OPK is positive for several days in a row?It is possible, in a normal ovulation, to have a positive OPK for several days in a row. This is because LH peaks (surges) about 12-36 hours before ovulation occurs, and then dissipates. So, you could theoretically detect this high level of LH with positive OPK's from the time it begins to the time it dissipates-- over 36 hours.It is also possible that your body is "gearing up" to ovulate, and you have an LH surge-- and then, for some reason (such as stress, illness, travel, or random fluke), your body fails to release an egg . . . then tries, tries again ASAP with another, or overlapping, surge. If you see a positive OPK for longer than 3 consecutive days, your egg is probably just having a little trouble getting out of the starting gate. If this happens to you occasionally, it's no big deal. If it happens a lot, talk to your doctor. (I just play one on the Internet )
