I've never had regular cycles (except on the pill) so I can't help you out. I can just say...irregular cycles really suck.

I tested again this morning with first morning urine and still it is a bfn. So I'm convinced this is just a wacky period

Ok still no sign of her. A decent amount of cm so I keep thinking she has arrived but she hasn't. We are on day 39 now!

My longest one off the pill was 62 days. (Well, I think they were longer as a teen but I can't remember that far back...haha!)

Hopefully she shows soon!

I ordered wondfo so I can track my o.

Now I need to learn how to use them. Anyone have a good link to share that explains the basics?

Ugh how frustrating for you! Sorry I don't have any experience with OPKs. I might start using them if my back heals and we start to TTC though.

Everything I learned, I learned on the TTC section here.

I recommend using one at least every 12 hours. Some people have a short LH surge and if you only test once a day, you could miss it. However, it's also normal to have a day or two of positive. Pre-Henry I'd have 2 days of positives each cycle, for the most part. Now, I'm lucky if I see one positive stick.

For it to be considered positive, the test line needs to be as dark as or darker than the control.

When you get a positive, you will typically ovulate something like 12-36 hours after. Though I imagine if you catch the end of the surge, you could probably ovulate before that 12 hour mark too.
