    Default Is this a positive OPK?

    I'm new to testing... Is this a positive OPK? It's been getting darker the last few tests, but I'm not sure if it needs to be even darker than the control line!

    TIA!

    It looks pretty close! I have had OPK's come up darker than the test line. I did one today that looks the same as yours. I'm expecting a strong pos tomorrow.

    I'd say almost positive . Unless you have a short surge.

    Chances are it should be darker tomorrow morning though.

    That looks good to me. Last month I was doing a natural FET where the clinic monitored me for ovulation with blood tests ... but I did OPKs along with it, for my own reference. The OPK first thing in the morning looked like that (same brand too) & had BT that morning too. They rang later that day & said I had surged/was surging and they would consider ovulation day to be the following day. I started getting O pain that very evening. So the OPK never got quite as dark as the control line, just pretty dark like yours.

    So, I would hop to it.

    So... I had 2 days of tests like the picture above... Then the tests were super light. I just tested today and have another super dark positive?! What the hell?! Do I have dodgy tests? I have ovulation symptoms today though... But confused as to why I was getting positives the other day?

    Maybe the LH started to rise but then backed off for whatever reason & you didn't ovulate. So it's trying again. Apparently that can happen.

    yep it can rise not quite peak, then go down and back up again. The test you showed isn't a true pos, it needs to be as dark or darker than the control. having said that, lots of women say they never get a really dark line and get pg.

    The super dark pos you got today was your surge by the sounds of it
