Almost as dark is still considered negative, even though it is dark.

Many days of a positive LH test is indicitive of PCOS and means you may not ovulate. I know that sounds weird, but it is common for those with PCOS to have this happen. I had that happen before I went on Clomid to get #2. I used to get 4-5 days of positive OPKs per cycle.
Interesting. Thanks!! The line was darker than the control line for sure today but it was just a hair lighter (though still very dark) against the control line the last 3 days. I also have had minor cramping last night and today. I suppose that would mean I am ovulating today then?
