Try virtual visit: Unfortunately your question is too complex to state in just a few words. The resulting short question is too confusing for me to understand what you are asking. I think you might be better served by getting a virtual consult. That way you can talk to a doctor one on one. ...Read more
When should I have sex if OPK was positive for 2 days and still positive 7 hours sgo but now OPK is negative?
OPKs: Ovulation prediction kits are not infallible. Read this==>http://www.Parentsconnect.Com/pregnancy/trying-to-conceive/ovulation_predictor_kits.Html having said that, the best time to have sex is 3-5 days before ovulation, not necessarily at or past ovulation (the kit measures the lh surge that precedes ovulation by 24-48 hours). Maybe for your next cycle, anticipate the surge with extra activity! ...Read more
My OPK was negative this month but my body showed ovulation signs. Could my LH surge be too low for OPK to detect? If so could it be hard to conceive?
Yes & no: Ovulation is when a mature egg is released from the ovary, pushed down the fallopian tube, and is available to be fertilized. Approximately every month an egg will mature within one of your ovaries. As it reaches maturity, the egg is released by the ovary where it enters the fallopian tube to make its way towards waiting sperm and the uterus. ...Read more
I feel a tugging in my right ovary which I felt both cycles I got pregnant. I'm having it again and it's day 11. Opk is negative. Can OPK be wrong?
OPK can be wrong: But why do you think it is? OPK is much more reliable than symptoms for most women. No woman (trust me) ovulates on exactly the same day each cycle, test again a few more days and see. Good wishes. ...Read more
Wait is out:
Menstrual irregularities are not uncommon and anovulatory cycle is a common cause. If you miss more than two periods it would be time to see your doctor. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time. You may consider implanted contraceptive or an IUD.

Opk was negative but I have been feeling pressure in my lower abdomen and it's kind of hard also a lot more pressure when having intercours?
This could be: a lot of things. Ovulation predictor kits are quite accurate; the symptoms you describe are not that suspicious for ovulation anyway. Pelvic pressure can be due to uterine problems (endometriosis, fibroids, pelvic inflammatory disease), bladder problems (infection, interstitial cystitis), bowel problems (irritable bowel syndrome), etc. Seek evaluation for your PCP or gynecologist. Good wishes:) ...Read more
Positive OPK but negative hpt but I am 11 days late for my period and ovulated at the begining of the month how is this possible?
Repeat preg test: Pregnancy test kits are not 100% accurate. You can try a different brand to definitively rule out pregnancy. Another possibility is that you ovulated weakly and did not produce enough progesterone to have a menses. Also, some women have chronically high LH levels (PCOS) so the OPK show positive all the time or erratic results. If you have a history of irregular menses then that is more likely. ...Read more

Negative opk yesterday, digital peak fertility today... Period ended 3 days ago. Only on cycle day 7 right now.. Could opk be wrong? Temp when up .3
14 days before: An easy way to remember ovulation is that it occurs 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days between periods then you can calculate an approximate ovulation date. Ovulation predictor kits can be useful but they measure the LH surge and not true ovulation. A midluteal phase Progesterone blood test is the most definitive way to confirm ovulation ...Read more

Ovulated on day 14 with EWCM, but a week later i had tons of EWCM again but negative OPK, what is wrong ? Did i ovulate twice? Trying to conceive.
Ovulatory cycles: Clear cervical mucus is not limited to ovulation, but at "day 14" usually signals such. This type of discharge is also common with low grade vaginitis. need more information to be sure, but use a serum test (HCG) for pregnancy if your period is delayed more than day 28. There are many methods to increase fertility, so see your healthcare provider for advice. ...Read more
Do you need to ovulate to get a period? I had a d&c 6 weeks ago and i haven't had my period and opk's are all negative any help?
Not unusual: Yes you do, you can only have a spontaneous period (meaning without medicines) if you have ovulated. If you had a d;c 6 weeks ago it wouldn't be unusual to have not ovulated yet; i'd guess you still have detectable HCG (pregnancy hormone) in your system. You could have this checked; when it drops to zero you should start cycling again. Good luck! ...Read more
Positive OPK 16dpo but negative hpt. Can a cyst cause pos OPK or could i be pregnant? Trying to find if I have a cyst or pregnant.
Might I still ovulate even when the digital OPK tests say negative? I've been testing days 11-22 (each morning) after taking Provera (medroxyprogesterone) and then Clomid.
Yes: First ovulation kits are often wrong in both directions so that is common. And for some women they do not work. They will only turn positive if you ovulate and you might not ovulate on the Clomid (clomiphene). Also your LH level has to be high enough to turn the kit positive. So at some point it might be easier to get blood tests to confirm what is going on. ...Read more

I missed my period last month,I had a 3 positive OPK'S after missing. 2nd month of missed period took OPK it was negative what could it be?
Women sometimes have months when they don't ovulate. Its frustrating when you want to get pregnant but if it happens just one month it doesn't mean something is wrong. If it happens frequently, you should see your gyn to find out why you are not ovulating. Best wishes!
