Start testing from Day 16. The test should be positive about 36 hours before you ovulate. Have sex every second day from this time.

Best wishes

Funnily enough there is a Dr called Dr Dee! I think shes been on Carte Blanche.

Thanks Dr Dee, i'll definatley give you my vote. I also can't hold my wee that long, i'm lucky if i can hold it for 30 mins (and that's when i'm not pregnant).
Do you have any kids?? You are TTC hey?

Funny! Well I do enjoy answering these questions way more than my normal job, maybe I should apply for the position!

Anyway ppl say that you shouldnt use first morning urine coz its too concentrated and might give you a false +. But I used to test with FMU and used to get -'s and then finally it turned to +, so its up to you, personally I cant hold my pee for 4 hours during the day.

PS ask as many questions as you want!!!

Hi Nix,
I would start testing on CD15, every day at the same time and you must hold ur urine for at least 4 hours. You might want to get 2 packs of sticks if you want to start testing earlier than CD15. You need both test lines to be dark, thats a +. After the + u will ov approx 36-48 hours later so you must BD as much as possible over that time. Sex everyday is fine, it wont make the sperm weaker - thats a myth! Let me know how u get on. u can get cheap OPK's at www DOT getpregnant DOT co DOT za
