First month using OPKs, got a positive on CD 18 and CD 19 (today). This is after some spotting on CD 15 and 16.
So I was under the impression I should only get one pos OPK, that the LH surge is so brief even testing once a day might miss it,
Am I missing something? First cycle testing after MC, so am just worried my body isn't doing the right thing.
Anyone have any ideas?

Whenever i've used OPKs I have always gotten a positive over two days. They say not to keep testing once you get a positive to avoid confusion but I like to see when it goes negative so keep testing
I also found with charting that I tended to ovulate on the day of the second positive.
I found this website has a good Q&A for OPKs and HPTs.
All the best with your ttc journey

Thanks Kyla22 and Caninestorm
Yeah, I did read that once I get a pos to stop, but since it was my first try with OPKs I was curious as to what my body was doing, especially after spotting.
I'm not temping but after my pos yesterday I did get some right hand side abdominal pain that lasted a few hours, so I reckon that was it. I'll test again later this afternoon and see what I get.
Lots of BDing.... check
