    I had a positive OPK on 18th April a negative one 19th April then the past 2 days 20th & 21st April positive again. I'm so confused. I had EWCM on thr positive opk days but none on the 19th which was the negative. Can someone shed some light please?
    TIA xx

    Sometimes your body gears up for ovulation but doesn’t actually happen. So maybe the 2nd surge you are having is actual ovulation x

    Great, thank you. I did wonder that. Do you know what the drop could have been?
    I feel like you're an expert
    Appreciate you commenting. X

    No, sorry i mean that the ovulation stick went light then dark again. I used clear blue advanced alongside the sticks and got a static smile the same day as my positive on the sticks. I'll try and get a decent picture of the ovulation sticks.
    I'm glad you got pregnant naturally in the end. IVF is so tough, I'm an expert at that but have no clue when it comes to all of this. Xx

    The only one I would say is positive is the 8th one down. But they do seem to be getting darker again.
    Where would your clear blue one go in here?

    So my static smile on the clear blue was the same day as the 8th one down but obv once you get the static it stays on for 24hrs or whatever it is. I have tracked my ovulation before and usually straight after ovulation my boobs hurt and they aren't which is making me think have i not ovulated yet. The EWCM is confusing me too. X

    Personally I would keep using the cheap ones to see if it gets darker or lighter over the next couple of days.
    I had cycles were my boobs never hurt after ovulation and some where they did. I think hormones just fluctuate differently. Xx

    Test is completely negative and my nipples are slightly sore which is always my sign I've ovulated so it was probably right what you said that my body gearing up before actual ovulation. Thanks xx

    You are very welcome. I am glad the OPK's have gone negative and you managed to DTD as much as possible over ovulation x
