    Default OPK/DTD Question

    So Saturday, CD15, I had a still slightly light OPK (5pm).

    Yesterday night, CD 16, DH and I DTD around 10. Before I went to bed I got a + OPK (around 11pm)

    Today DH is working a double so I don't know if we will be able to DTD tonight or not, but I got another very + OPK when I tested after work (6pm).

    This is my first month using them so I'm not sure how often/how many days after getting the + we should DTD? Before I got the + we have been doing every other day. I really want to catch the egg this month or we will have to take a 2 or 3 month break !

    Here are the tests:

    I am no expert, since I just started using opk's myself. But with all the googling I've. Been doing lately says you should continue to DTD 2-3 days after a positive. Not sure how often though. I guess as much as possible.

    Technically every other day should cover all your bases since you are making sure there is sperm up there when the egg is released. Sperm can live anywhere from 12-36 hours even up to 5 days. FF recommends bd'ing for four days prior to O, O day, and one day after. We were doing it every other day until I thought O was close then switched to every day. We were just tired of bd'ing after that so we took a break. OPKs are sometimes hard to decipher too bc they can only give you a 12-36 hr guess of when O will happen. Though I think the general consensus is you usually O the day after the first strong +.

    check your CM too because your CM usually gets sticky after you O. I had a really strong pos on Sat and then a lighter pos on sunday and today my CM is sticky so i'm pretty sure I o'd on Sunday
