    I have been trying to conceive for just over a year now working out my most fertile days from my period. So this month i have brought some Ovulation kits. I am on my 3rd day of using them and have not had a positive yet, so i was wondering over the next few days when i hopefully get my positive. Whens best to have sex, as soon as i get a positive or a few hours later then next day?

    Thank

    I am usuaully 30 days. I use fertility friend app on my phone to keep track of when I'm due and come on. Which works out which days should be my most fertile I have been using this for about 6 months now but haven't had any luck. I read the instructions that came with my kit and thy told me to start a day later than fertity friend. I have just done one today and not had my positive yet. Just wanna know when i get my positive whena best to have sex thanks

    I've just started using the one step ones and nothing positive yet? Any one ever had BFP and not had any positives from ovulation kits

    I carried on doing the opk once i got a positive line as it was my first month and wanted to see how long it was ovulating for. It was positive for 2 days. Just got to wait till the end of the month now. Have you had you positive yet sarah?

    hey & welcome!

    I have had my implant out for a year now, I was not trying not preventing but I always kept an eye on my dates just so that I knew if my cycles were returning to normal, anyway I had an app on my phone and it had predicted my dates this month for OV was right at the end of the month, now that I have bought OPK's I know that I ovulate much much earlier, so I would maybe use the app as a rough guide as in my case it was way off base.

    A week before my rough OV I would have sex every other night then when you get your first positive have sex everynight until your OV. Thats what the girls in here have advised me :D

    don't ask me Sarah..........lol.........i'm the worlds worst POAS addict and I pee on about 3 or 4 a day lol. i just can't help myself!

    i think the general thing is one a day but if you start getting darker lines then do 2 a day, and never FMU, always 2nd or 3rd urine, hold as long as you can and don't drink too much. then maybe another at night about 8 or 9pm.

    HTH

    (don't be like me and poas every 2-3 hours lol. I'm borderline OCD lol)
