Last cycle my OPK was positive for about 24 hours. I wonder if the test at 1:00 was a false positive?? Sometimes all this technology just seems to make everything more complicated! I'm in the process of holding until 9:00 and gonna test again. Annoying!
You're not suppose to "hold" like you do with HPTs... that's why they don't recommend FMU for OPKs. Just pick a few times...mid to late morning, mid to late afternoon (if you're a true ATTSer ), and mid evening (which is the considered the best time to OPK test). Too much OPK testing will make you Lol

Huh... the directions that came with the cbe digi OPKs said that I needed to not pee for 4 hours before testing. I haven't been using FMU because I've read that a lot of people get false + because the pee is so concentrated. So, I pee when I first get up and then refrain from peeing for 4 hours, poas and then repeat a few times a day.

I agree though.....OPKs will make you .

Re: TTC 30+ Oct. 8-Oct. 14

I can see why the directions say 4 hours ... when I test with pee that's way too diluted I get hardly any line at all on an OPK, even on a near-positive day. I think you are doing it right. And omg, they will make you super-crazy... it's terrible.

Ok, I have been trying for about half an hour to put a link to my darn chart. So far I have managed to put a thumbnail of the actual chart or a great big line of link text. I wanna do a discreet little thingy with my chart link that I can hide somewhere in my siggy. Now, I know someone gave instructions about that about a week ago, anyone care to repeat them?
I'm on the Sharing, Get Code page but not sure which one to use.

Help?

Go to "sharing" then go to "setup" -- copy and paste the URL where it says: "Your Charting Home Page Web Address:" and that's the web address to link your chart.

Sorry...didn't realize you we're using digi. I guess those are different. I've never used those, so don't mind me. Lol Carry on! Carry on!

No, you don't want it too diluted, but a couple hours hold with an IC will give you a true reading & holding it too long (I'm pretty sure, but don't hold me to it ) can possibly give you a false positive. But this is with an IC...I've never used a digi OPK. I just give my info off of what I've read & personal experience.

I never got a positive on these tests either. So def don't lose hope. Could totally be a BFP and just a crappy test!

So still no AF- should I do anohter round of progesterone or give it a few days? I just want to scream at my body, but I know it won't help
How long since you stopped taking it? I would probably do it again.
