    Default Conflicting opk results

    Has anyone had the problem where you have had 2 different branded opks and they are different results?

    I have oracle fertility and fertility2family opks on the oracle it's negative for ovulation but f2f it's positive? What do I believe here?

    Never tried Oracle but I use fertility2family and they are right on. I always get the twinges and EWCM the day of, or after the positive result.

    Some measure a lower/higher trace of hormone, much like pregnancy tests, so different brands can have differing results.
    I'd go as if it's positive anyway, can't hurt and good luck!

    It's so annoying and confusing! I can't Judge ovulation by much else as I don't get a lot of EWCM or feel ovulation pains

    Look today's opks same wee different test! Although I have been getting the darkish line on the green on since like Sunday maybe, so maybe it's just a dodgy batch? Ahhh so Confusing!

    So the line is as dark and thick as the control since Sunday?? that's weird. Normally my surge only lasts a max of 24 hours usually 12.Is this the first month of using OPK's?

    I'd say the green test is just ultra sensitive so it registers a 'positive' sooner. I'd probably still DTD but go by the pink test (but still do both tests until you get a positive on the pink)
