Help why am I getting postive opk after ovulation
Hello ladies I am going through a rough patch right now and I am beginning to worry about when I ovulated. I have been tracking my ovulation for about a year now and I usually ovulate around cycle 18 or 19. I took a opk and it was positive on cycle day 18 and I got crosshairs on cycle day cycle day 22 meaning I o'd on cycle day 19. Ok I was curious so I started taking opks again because I started cramping again monday night needless to say I took an opk yesterday and it was almost as dark as the control line and it took an opk this morning and it was dark as the control like. WTH is going on???
I am afraid I have too much LH in my system. Does this mean I didn't ovulate? Should I change my O date to today. My temps are up infact they have been kind slow rising.
Temps since O was
cycle day 18 97.24 eggwhite cm
cyle day 19 97.59 ff said I O'd
cycle day 20 97.76
cycle day 21 97.81
cycle day 22 97.88 almost positive opk creamy cm
cycle day 23 98.21 positive opk creamy cm (this is where I am today)
I am so confused about what is going on. My period is due in 11 days. If somebody has any insight and can help me out I would greatly appreciate it. Am I out this month?, did I even ovulate??? I am getting so fustrated with this whole process. My dh and I have been trying for over 12 years and I am almost at the point to giving up. I experience my first bfp last february (27th) that ended in an 8 week miscarriage. I got pregnant again in october and experienced a chemical pregnancy. Please ladies help me off the ledge because I am about the fall off. I turned 35 years old last month and I feel that I am running out of time.
Sorry for such a long post. TIA to those to take the time to read and respond to my message.

Are you doing any meds or did you trigger? Did you get negatives before you got the + on cd18? Was your last period normal?Katie (32) Patrick ( 33)

What brand of opk did you use?

What are your temps looking like? Is there a clear temp shift to support ovulation on cd19?

Hey Stacey.... I have no idea why this happens, I wish I could be more help there but I just wanted to share that this just happened to me also. I had good EWCM and a postive OPK on CD17 with a clear and obvious temp shift on CD18 and a couple days later I decided to take another OPK just for the heck of it and it was clearly positve again except now my CM was sticky non fertile stuff. Yesterday I started AF and my LP is always 16 days so it confirms that I did indeed ovulate on CD 18 like I first thought. It sounds like the same thing has happened to you, I would definitely say that you had a clear temp shift and that you did ovualte on CD 19 like first thought. Now Ive decided that once I get a clear temp shift the OPKs are getting locked away until next cycle unless I notice EWCM.Hidden Content Grace (31) & Hidden Content Rob (36)
