Default OPK with IUI, WWYD?

Normally, I use my first morning urine to do my ovulation predictors. I can usually pick up the "color change," as my clinic calls it, really well now using it that way.

My clinic, however, says to disregard the directions in the opk and use the 2nd urine. I just did that this morning, and I found the control line to be lighter in general, and although I did see a second line, it was extremely light (which makes sense though cause I'm not ovulating yet).

So would you follow the clinic's advice or would you do what you know?

I would do both

I've always used FMU- and my clinic said to use that as well

But in your case, I would do both and compare....

I would do whatever you are most comfortable with. MY RE had me doing it at night. They said the important part was time of day.

YOu can do it twice a day if you want to spend the money on double the kits.

Good luck!

I'd do both and compare. It can pricey with the store OPKs, but I'm a sucker and would want to compare.

I"m not doing OPKs this time -- should I be??

I'd also be DTD like a 16 year old!!!

Well.. you will most likely ovulate a little later- like around day 16. What worked for us was an every other day schedule... esp since your dh seems kind of like mine. I used to get all hyped up around day 12-13, and then I needed to dtd much later, like cd15-17.
