yes it does mean you ovulated yesterday .. but you are still fertile for up to 48 hours after just not as fertile as at ovulation

I have just bought a ovulation testing kit and find it a bit confusing. DOH It say about wortking out when to start testing so should i count from af start date 14 days then start testing for ovulation? Sorry i am so stupid about all this.

Depends how long your cycle is , it's always best to start a few days early just in case you miss it, then once the lines fade again thats when you should actually ov , the tests just pick up the LH surge which you get before ov so on a 28 day cycle if you did normally ov on cd 14 then you'd probably get your surge cd13 or maybe even late on cd12 xx

If it's 27 days it might be worth starting as early as cd 11 just in case you have a long luteal phase , how many tests have you got ? If they're the digi ones then you don't get to see the lines developing so it will just go from a complete negative to a positive, if you find you want to try them every month then a lot of ladies on here use the cheap strips so you can see the lines appealing and try a few days before ov as well, just gives you a bit more warning , some of the Ladies just keep one of the digis to back up when they think they've got their pos on those but I just used the cheapies (much cheaper than the other brands of OPK ) wish I had some this month as I've not got a clue whats going on thanks to being ill at the worst possible time Rolling Eyes Laughing takes the pressure of for the next 2 weeks I suppose Laughing Sorry AF got you, but FX these opk's will do the trick and you'll get that BFP Very Happy xx
