Ouch...My Ovaries!

It's CD16 today and my ovaries are killing me. They are so achy and feel like they want to explode. But my OPKs are as negative as they've ever been and I'm already tired of doing it. I'm starting to freak out. What if I don't ovulate? Shouldn't I have a + by now?

This morning's FMU OPK (CD16). I know they say not to use OPKs in the morning but I wanted to try anyway and it's actually darker than yesterdays.

Afternoon update: My ovaries hurt so bad. But still no LH surge :(

Evening update: I didn't think I could feel any worse, but I feel like I'm about to burst...and still, THIS (grrrr). I have to be close, right?


  1. My first Femara cycle I didn't get a + opk until day 17. You definitely still have time and the achy ovaries are a very good sign! :)

  2. I just started Femara as well, and I did get a false +OPK on CD12 (really early to see that for me), but just like you, it didn't seem quite the same as my normal positives. Only got one + OPK that morning with FMU and then it was gone.

    I went in for u/s on CD12 and CD13 and I definitely did not O, nor was I close to O'ing. I kept testing and then got 3 very strong +OPK's (6:30 am, 1 pm, 7 pm) on CD19 and felt an O pain that day.

    Sure enough, u/s showed I had just O'ed the morning of CD20! So, I think we had a similar experience and I bet you are going to O soon. I was taken back by getting a +OPK that early on CD12, but it wasn't real...first time I've ever had a false +OPK, but that's what it was. Keep testing. It looks like your Wondfo is almost + and I bet you'll get a smiley soon!

    1. Finally figured out how to add Replies to my blog. Thanks for the detailed info Emily! Finally got my smiley this morning :-)
