    The second line being as dark as (or darker than) the control line means you are likely ovulate within the next 24-36 hours.

    If the 2nd line is faint then I would ignore it

    I'm going to start a "I hate OPK" club having a mare with them myself after not having a whif of a positive since period ended on 14th feb just had one and it's a major positive two thick lines?? Surely can't ovulate this late in cycle??

    :'( looks like i missed my ovulation! started getting dark lines on day 4/5 of cycle when i was still bleeding and thought i can't be ovulating it's too early so left it, now day 11 of cycle and have had lots of CM for last two days and last time we DTD was friday which means it was way too early to catch the ovulation but now we're too late, and can't even squeeze one in now on the off-chance because I have a presentation due in in two days so have to work and OH is at home (an hour away) :( feel like sh*t, also the supermarket was FULL of pregnant women and newborns today :'( it's just not fair, 1.5 years!
