    i was told and read in many places 2pm and also make sure you havent had lots of fluid to drink before hand.

    good luck i tryed and never got to work for me as 2pm was a hard time of day with work etc and also were not good indicator for me.

    I have been told (by Melbourne IVF) that I should test in the morning and i must have not been to the loo for at least 4 hours. Not sure of the reason behind the time, maybe just for consistancy between their patients as not everyone would be able to do a test at 2pm.

    My tests use to say use them at 2pm. However I was not eager to do this at work! So I would take the test when I got home from work around 6pm. I always tried to take them at the same time... and we got lucky with a BFP the second month of using them and only DTD twice that month!

    Good luck

    Hi Lenny

    That is what MIVF told me, google seems to contradict that suggestion.

    What to do .. If I have reliable OPK's should I test at 2 & 8 pm, or at FMU ?

    Would an OPK guru clear this up for me ?

    (info for a friend )

    I always find after lunch time is good as long as it's not to early it should be fine try to find one set time that works for you every day and best of luck wishing you a bfp soon.
