OPK help?

I've been testing for a week. The test line has been light, light, light, light, dark (yesterday), light (today). But the "dark" test line day was just a hair lighter than the control line. Not exactly the same, but barely there. Still likely an LH surge? Today IS the typical day I always ovulate in my cycle, so that all falls into line. I wasn't doing any temps this cycle. :-/

That's how mine are. I never get darker than the control. I use the smileys to confirm. Those you can't mistake!

Darker is darker! It's possible that time of day affected the spike. Bests of luck!

Re: OPK help?

side question, if you all don't mind, So you would see the darker spike the day before you actually release the eye?
Thanks so much!

Re: OPK help?

I think they say you see the darker line 12 - 36 hours before you release the egg. So, it could be later that day, or could actually be 2 days later. For me, I would test positive in the morning and would be negative by the next morning (some people get a positive two days in a row). As I got older, I would test negative by that afternoon. I think that is common to get shorter surges as you age.

When I use opk it's very normal for me to never see my surgee. I'll get very close to dark but then never get equal or darker. I've confirmed O with temp when that has happened. Hopefully you still BD and got it!

Re: OPK help?

The cycle that resulted in DD2, I had a medium-dark at 2 PM one day, and the next day (same time) it was back to light. I can only guess that I must've hit my surge later that night and just missed it with my tests. I for sure dropped an egg; she turned five earlier this month!
