    I'm so confused. I'm on CD23 and I thought 2DPO...BUT I did another OPK just now, just to check I, and I got this!! This is + isn't it? One minute i'm never getting any +'s then I get 2 in a week.

    Here's the one I did just now:

    and the one on Monday:

    I am aware that OPK's detect pregnancy but there is no way surely?!

    The one today shows a lighter line than the one on Monday so i would say trust Monday's one.

    Apparently the LH hormone is always in your system in small amounts which is why you should only class it as a positive if the lines are the same darkness

    All this TTC lark is soooo confusing! :hug: :hug:

    I'm not an expert at OPKs, having never had a + on them, but Monday's one looks + to me (it's the same kind I used). Today's one - which is meant to be the test line and which the control line? If the right hand line is the LH test line, then no, I wouldn't call that +.

    In any event, you're supposed to stop testing after your first + :hug: - it's quite usual to have an LH surge that lasts a couple of days. The 12-36 hours is from your first + OPK.

    Hope that helps a bit! :hug:

    Oh yeah..... Never noticed that. Shows how often I've seen a positive on one of those things!!! :rotfl: :rotfl:

    I don't really know what to make of it then. I suppose with the control line being lighter it could be a faulty test. Do you have anymore so you could another one to rule that out??

    The only other thing I could think of is that you are still having a surge.... all be it a long one! Try again in a couple of days to see if it still happens.

    :hug:

    Yes your right its the line on the left that is the test line.
    Now thats a pretty dark line. :dance:

    From my experience of OPK's i used them for 6 months and was losing hope as i never got a line. My cycles were so irregular (from 31 -45 days) so i think i was testing at the wrong time and missing the surge.

    I finally got a + line in october which made me so excited, BD'd like there was no tomorrow and i got my BFP 2 weeks ago.

    Good luck :pray: xxx

    Just done another OPK and its + again. I've checked the instructions over and over, i'm definitely looking at the right line and I know the test line has to be darker, which it is. It's exactly the same as the pic above. What is my body doing?!
