    Hi everyone,

    So last couple of days I've had two very nearly if not positive opk's when I test mid morning around 930am this is not fmu which is usually around 630am but at this time I have not yet drank much fluids so think it's more concentrated does this mean it's not a true reading?
    Once I get later in the day I drink between 2-3 litres of water as I'm consistently dieting etc! I think this dilutes my test results too much?? I rarely get anywhere near possible after 3pm.

    So in summery
    With mid morning ruins am I getting a true reading as long as it's not fmu? Or are the afternoon tests more accurate?

    Thanks for your thoughts ladies!

    Xx

    I think your pee in the morning is too concentrated... you should hold your pee for 2 hours in the afternoons and barley drink/not drink in those 2 hours.
    In April, I had opks go very very dark but not dark enough... then went back to normal the next week, i had a positive, no idea what happened but our bodies do weird things all the time xx

    So frustrating when your waiting for a positive and when you get one you just doubt it's genuine! So much conflicting info out there. As many sites say fmu will give false negative as your lh levels don't rise till later in day and they say to not drink for 4 hours so your wee is concerntrated. Yet it can be too concerntrated and give false positives. Don't drink much so it's not diluted.... Blah blah blah Thinking what's the point in them really????

    I found it hard when I first started using them, i do three a day.. 1 about 11ish, then about 5 and one before bed. Your surge can come and go in like an hour, so sometimes we miss it.
    Have you tried doing SMEP? I did that when I didn't know if i was going to ovulate, but I got my bfp doing it...it didn't work last month. I might try it again in a couple months x
