How long do YOU get positive OPKs for?

I'm on day 3 of dark dark opks that are getting darker. Not sure if that's normal or not?!

I have PCOS. When I had 3-5 days od pos OPKs I was told it was the PCOS and that I should not have more than 24 hours. I had some pregnancies then but lost them all. It was not till I got treated that I got a 24 hour OPK and healthy pregnancy.

See I think those are CLOSE to positive but not yet. That last one is really close.

The T stands for test and the C for control. So the test line is on the left. Those are totally +. I've had + for 5 days in a row and dont have pcos or anything like that. According to my temps I o'ed on the 3rd of that cycle- my baby is 6m old now
I think my body geared up to O and didn't and them tried successfully again as it was my first ppaf cycle. You could also have caught your surge on the way and and are catching it on its way down as well
