TTC after 35

the faint line (negative) on the opk strip...

So, is the faint negative line on the opk strip just an evap, or is it a sign of some LH in your body?  Just curious, I am on CD10-ish and have been using the strips 2x per day for 2 days...hoping to go through to a positive.  Have not BD yet.  Planned for CD10, 12, 13.  Maybe this is not ambitious enough.  Anyway, this faint line has been giving me hope, as usual...fool that I am :) 


Re: the faint line (negative) on the opk strip...

  • My OPKs always show some kind of faint test line. I think there is always a little LH in your system, but I'm not totally sure. That's why they say it has to be as dark or darker than the control line to be positive. On the plus side you can sometimes see it trending toward darker and have an idea that you are about to have a surge ;)
  • Test 2x per day.. I always caught my surge later in the day
