I've heard that some women spot during/around ovulation. I suppose if you got a positive OPK and had EWCM then you may actually have ovulated. I would say, wait a couple weeks and if you don't get AF then take a test.

Thanks for responding. I hope that I ovulated. I took the test later that evening and it was negative....so maybe I have a very short surge? I dont know......fingers crossed!

It could have also been implantation bleeding.

How many days past ovulation are you? If you are just 3 or 4 days that would be way too early to have a BFP.

I'm sure its too early. My OPK was on the 18th.....so thats only 4 days. It is driving me crazy though....how soon can you test?

Oh yeah, if you just ovulated you won't get a positive hpt. If you got a positive OPK on the 18th then for arguments sake we will say you O'd on the 19th so you are approximately 3 days post ovulation (DPO). Most drs will tell you to wait 14-18 DPO before testing but I try not to test before 10 DPO even though my luteal phase is 15-16 days. I hope that helps!
