Hi everyone! This is my first time posting, and I am new to the site, so please forgive me if I don't have all the shorthand down!
My DH and I have been TTC for 3 months, and decided this cycle to try an ovulation predictor kit. I read some reviews on this site, and tried the Target Brand - Similar to "Answer" - Ovulation Predictor Kit. (One where you dip the stick in the cup) I have been following the directions and testing every day at the same time. I typically have a 28 day cycle, so I started testing around day 10 of my cycle. I didn't see a "spike" or "a line as dark as or darker than the control line" until day 17. But I had a dark line on Day 17, 18, and 19. On day 20, there was still a dark second line, but it was obviously lighter than the previous days.
Since this is my first time using something like this, I was hoping someone out there may have some guidance as to whether this is normal, or if I messed up the test. I know once the like is "as dark as or darker than the control line" you are likely to ovulate within 36 hours... but I didn't expect to have 3 days of a "surge". Thanks in advance!
