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:
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
