    Default Is sexual arousal a sign of ovulation?

    I haven't seen this question asked, but then again, I could be wrong. I have googled this and they seem to be saying that is also a sign that ovulation is about to or is taking place. I am now confused. My OPK was positive Friday and Friday night about 8pm I had very painful mid cycle pain in the lower abdo, I assumed that I may have ovulated Friday night or Saturday morning. I have put it in as Saturday morning just in case. But today I still have a positive OPK (3 days later) And I read thats normal... but now I am sexually aroused (sorry girls) and I have read thats a sign of ovulation. So have I ovulated Friday when I suspected or am I ovulating now? And if I am ovulating now and not Friday will I still catch the egg if I have to wait till I get home tonight to BD? How long does it take the egg to travel? I just did the math too. If in fact I did ovulate Friday night as I expected, it means that its around 65 hours later that I am aroused. But I thought that the positive OPK meant that ovulation can occur up to 36 hours... yep I have put way too much thought into this haven't I?

    Are you sure the lower abdomen pain was O pain? (Perhaps the OPK wasn't accurate?)
    I know that since having Natty I've noticed EWCM (which I never really had before) and around that time I'm generally pretty frisky...
    Are you charting as well, or just using the OPKs?
