OPKs. Thoughts on Use?
So my (currently 39 day) chart is mostly based on BBT, because I feel like the worst CM guesser I haven't really been logging my guesses (until the last few days). It looks like I O (slow climb which FF seems to think is valid), I had high temps and then 11DPO (assuming I O) my temp dropped and I've been cramping with bright red spotting since (and continued cramping today so I'm hoping an actual AF arrives). Healthy LP is 10-16 days so I'm feeling okay about the 11DPO temp drop.
I figured I wouldn't use OPK's until we had been actively trying for a couple months with no success. However, since my current chart isn't conclusive and I haven't had a full blown AF yet, I'm wondering if I should have started with OPKs right away...? I was thinking it would just be a helpful tool for pinpointing ovulation when I want to be PG, not necessarily just trying to confirm I am O and getting on a regular cycle.
When did/do you use OPKs? How would you recommend they be used? TIA!
