    If you worry about waiting for the exact right point based on testing - you are very likely to miss the right time frame.  Once ovulation happens, the egg only lives 12 to 24 hours.

    As soon as you start seeing results on the test that indicate ovulation should happen soon - you should plan on having sex at least every other day.  Sperm can live in you for up to five days.  No matter what day ovulation happens on, if there is sperm in there, you have a higher chance at conception.

    You can't predict the exact day of conception based on the test or based on the day you have sex since sperm can live for five days and conception can happen on a day you did not have sex.  

    So - you should have started having sex on day 13 and you should have sex at least every other day until past day 19.  (If you have a normal 28 day cycle, this is the usual fertility window.  If you have a slightly shorter cycle, you should start having sex around day 11.  If you have a slightly longer cycle, you should have sex until at least day 21.)

    Don't worry about light and dark lines.  Just screw every other day.
