So when do I start using OPKs?

Today should be the last day of my period. Given that my last cycle was super long (50 days- not normal, but has more to do with pp regulating), I have no idea what is in store this month, and as you all know, we'd REALLY like to catch this egg. So any advice is welcome!

Thanks!

My doctor told me to start using OPKs on CD 10 until AF or I get a +, but i'm also on medicated cycles.

For a 28 day cycle I was told to test from CD12...I believe there is a instruction paper in the packets of the cheapie ones.
Saying that though as you're not sure when you o and have long cycles...I would start cd 10 and just tst everyday..once you see the line darkening test a couple of timnes a day!
Good luck to you!!!!!!
Excited to see updates!!

Thanks ladies!!! I'm CD 6 today...so only a couple more to go (that cycle tracker is obviously on a US time zone, as it doesn't change to my real-time CD day until half way through the day for me! Oh well!). Hopefully my cycle will be far more normal this month than it was last month. If I ovulate when I'm supposed to, I'd get an EDD of like June 2...so, actually, ovulating like a week late wouldn't be bad...but... just as long as I ovulate!!! Smile

I agree with Liz. I o early and have a long LP. If you're the same it would be smart to start on CD 10. GL - keeping all crossed for you this month!!!
