Hi Everyone,
I hope I'm posting in the appropriate place for my questions. I'm really new & confused when it comes to testing with opk's. On CD 8 & 9, it looked like both tests were positive to me, but this morning CD13 it looks positive to me too! Am I reading them right, is it positive?
Thanks in advance for the love & support!

  • Please do not post pictures of items that you have peed on/stuck into your pee. It is against the TOU for this community. Make sure you have read the pinned newbie guide in the forum, lurk around a bit, and use the search feature on the boards for questions like this.

    Make sure to read the instructions for your particular OPKs. Consistency is key with using them and you may have to chart for a while to learn your cycle. Many ladies here will recommend temping as a more consistent method.

    QFP

    @MannMama the directions typically say that if the test is the same darkness/darker than the control then it's positive. You may want to get one with the smiley faces to confirm if you're ever unsure. That said, it's typically not practice on the board to post things you've peed on.

    Moving forward, we recommend you read the Newbie Guide and rules for the boards, post an intro on the Newbie thread so we can learn more about you and your journey, lurk, and to jump in and join the daily posting boards once you feel comfortable enough to do so. We hope you stick around!

  • How do I delete my post?

  • @MannMama no need to delete your post. Welcome to the board. I echo PPs to check out the newbie guide which will answer a lot of your questions regarding TTC and OPKs. The best place to ask general questions like this are in the daily WTO threads since there's a lot of us using OPKs each month. The general rule is not to post pics of any kind of test on this board, but if you want you can PM me the pic, I don't mind looking and will share what I think. 

    For me personally, my test isn't positive unless the test line is darker than the control. But this will be something you'll learn about your own body as you have more months tracking your cycle. Introduce yourself in the newbie thread (if you haven't already) and jump in to the WTO thread.

    I typically have about 2-3 days of nearly positive. The only time I get a true positive is by testing in the afternoon. Get some Wondfos from Amazon and start testing a few times a day until you figure out the best time for you to catch your surge.
