Trying to Get Pregnant

Ovulation test kit question

I ordered ovulation test kits from early-pregnancytest.com The directions clearly state that a positive result is when the test line is as dark or darker than the control line.

My first month trying it, I got a good clear positive result. Did the deed 2 days before and then during ovulation-not pregnant.

This month, I took the test again just to make sure I ovulated around the same time. Every test gave me the 2 lines but they were never as dark or darker than the control line. And as days past, the line got lighter to almost complete white. We still did the deed every single day those weeks.

 Does that mean I didn't ovulate? Or maybe my urine was a little diluted, though I'm always careful. Has this happened to you? I'm getting a little worried as we're going on the 8th month of trying....

Re: Ovulation test kit question

  • Are you testing more than once a day?

    Since you've been trying for 8 months already, have you tried charting your BBT and CM as well?

  • I never get positive OPKs but I do ovulate. The only reason I know I ovulate is because I started temping. Well that and my three daughters haha. Were you testing multiple times a day? You could have just missed your surge. If this isn't your month I sugg

  • Thanks! I do get the fertile cm around my ovulation day, I just wanted to make sure (my mind plays tricks on me now that I want a baby!). I do only test once due to Husband's work schedule. I think it is indeed time to start temping!

  • If you're not already, I would suggest charting your BBT as well as using the OPKs, that way you can confirm that you ovulated.  With OPKs, even a positive doesn't guarantee that you actually ovulate, it could sometimes just mean that your body "gear

    CFNBC as of August 2013. TTC since October 2011. PCOS, single fallopian tube. HSG showed tube was blocked (this is but one reason why you undergo testing BEFORE starting fertility meds, kiddos). Diagnosed with stage IV ALK+ adenocarcinoma of the lung in August of 2013. Metastases in liver, bone and brain (as of 5/2014). 1st chemotherapy treatment failed, hospitalized in November-December 2013. Started clinical trial drug in December, disease in lung is significantly less, and is stable as of May 2014. Brain tumors found during May 2014 MRI. Radiation therapy (CyberKnife) started 6/24/2014-7/9/2014 (all done!). CT 7/15 showed progression of disease in lung and liver (liver, significantly) so IV chemotherapy will begin 7/23/2014. Chemo Cycle #2 started 8/22.  Chemo Cycle #3 scheduled for 9/11. Cycle #4 scheduled 10/2. Never, ever giving up!!

     
  • What all PP's have said. It's very possible that you are missing your surge. Surge length varies person to person & cycle to cycle. I test twice a day. Remember that you have 24-48 hours after the surge is detected before ovulation, so you don't ne
