For months, I have been using OPK's, and all was going fine, it detected my rise in LH for several months. Now for the past 2 months I have gone through so many strips and even though I am seeing some indication in the way of CM that it's getting close, I keep getting negatives on my OPK's. My temps continue to remain low, so I have not given up hope for this month quite yet. I think I need a new job, way too much work stress! Haven't been able to do the deed as much as I have wanted the past few days, but will resume again tomorrow night.

Are you testing only once a day or more? I had the same issue last month...got a + but didn't O until many days later and I was testing 2x per day.
I think sometimes it just doesn't pick up enough LH.

I agree with JB. I think it depends on how often you are testing, and when you are testing. Also, are you using the same OPKs you were using when you were getting positives? Sometimes the brand makes a difference.
Hope you get it figured out! :)

I agree with PP's make sure you are testing twice a day, starting after noon or so and again later in the day. My chart this month is a good example of a lot of negative OPK's when I thought I should be getting ready to O, but it ended up being delayed a few days and I did eventually get those + OPK's. I would suggest you keep testing.

Thanks for getting back to me! Unfortunately, I cannot test twice a day due to my work schedule...I have only been testing once a day, either in the late afternoon or early-mid evening. However, I have never tested more than once per day. I am going to keep testing because I have not yet had a thermal shift to indicate O. I use Clearblue Easy digital OPK's; couldn't stand comparing a line to a control line and wondering if it was dark enough or not.
