Hi all....we're getting ready to do a couple IUI's with donor sperm.  I've completed all tests and I just had to make sure that OPK worked for me before actually completing a cycle.  So we're in the middle of a move and life is hectic...and I've never used OPK's before.

 

I did a test Friday - negative but definitely had 2 lines it was just the second line wasn't as dark as the control line.  I missed 3 days, I know, my bad!  I did a test today - absolutely no second line at all.  Am I safe to say the tests work for me and I ovulated on one of those 3 days I missed?  Should I spend another month checking again? 

 

I'd love your thoughts!!  Thanks so much smile.png
