Positive OPK 2 days after period, can u ovulate that soon, now I am on cycle day 17 out of 28 and lightly spot bleeding, what is wrong with my cycle?
Unlikely: Most cycles of 28 days occur when ovulation is on day 14.

Remember sperm deposited in the vagina on the five days prior to ovulation will be most successful at pregnancy. ...Read more
