Can you ovulate 5 days after positive OPK?
The short answer: not long. Eggs are only viable for about 24 hours after they’re released. That, combined with the 36 hours between a positive ovulation test and ovulation, means you may only have about 60 hours (or 2 ½ days) during your cycle when conception is even possible.
Why have my ovulation tests been positive for a week?
Why do I keep getting a positive OPK? Typically, people will see a positive OPK for a few days after their initial positive test. Most women experience it for up to 72 hours, when the LH surge is still present in their urine. In fact, we almost always have a small amount of luteinizing hormone in our urine.
How soon do you ovulate after positive OPK?
When the OPK gives you a “positive” response, you will be fertile sometime in the next 12- to 48-hours, but sometimes ovulation will not occur until 72 hours later, which may be too large of a window for some sperm.
Can you ovulate the same day as LH surge?
The LH surge indicates ovulation will occur at some point within the next twelve to forty-eight hours (on average). The window is large because it is different for everyone. Some people ovulate the same day as the LH surge and some ovulate two days after the surge.
How many hours after peak OPK will I ovulate?
Ordinarily, it’s secreted at very low levels throughout your menstrual cycle. But once a developing egg follicle reaches a certain size — usually around the midpoint of your cycle — LH secretion surges to really high levels. This hormone surge is what triggers ovulation about 24 to 36 hours later.
What will LH levels be if pregnant?

Why do all my ovulation test always negative?
