Infertility: Dont rely exclusively on the ferning exam. There are variations to that duri g a menstrual cycle. Consider as well basal body temperature changes early in the morning.

A 32-year-old female asked:

Is there possibly an issue if my basal temperature rise (indicating ovulation) occurs 4 days after my first positive opk?

No: I do not depend on ovulation predictor kits. There is too much variability with them and they are not as accurate as we think.

Can you ovulate on cycle day 11? I do bbt and opk. Everything is showing i ovulated on day 11. I usually have a 27-28 day cycle.

Yes: It's much earlier than usual, but I have treated many women who ovulate on day 11. Just to be certain: if you mean OPK is positive on day 11, it means ovulation will likely be 1-2 days later. Good wishes.

The following day: If you were checking yourself every day and you first detected the surge on CD21 then the following day (CD22) is when the egg is released (or ovulated).
