I'm asking for a similar reason. I got a positive opk just over a week ago and once i got a few negative opks i stopped testing but now i'm worried that i should have kept testing just in case i got another positive... (can that even happen?)
Hope someone can help us!

I stop after I get a certain neg this time I tested from CD 14-til 18 plus another on CD 20 just in case.
I should have been testing from CD 12 but they didnt arrive on time. I text once a day until it gets darker then sometimes twice a day

I need to temp as well as use OPKs as I have long and erratic cycles.
Last cycle, I got a positive OPK (and I use clearblue digital so there's no room for error!), but had no temp rise so I kept using the OPKs and got another positive 2 weeks later and finally got the temp rise after that surge.
Basically, I cannot be certain I have O'd unless and until I see a temp rise, so I keep using them until I am 1000 percent sure.
If your cycles are more predictable, I would stop once you get your first negative.
