    Unhappy OPKs - Keep getting light second line on OPKs

    Im driving myself crazy and hoping someone can help.To summarise my journey so far - I went of the pill 18mths ago and after 6mths my period hadn't shown. We have gone through all options to concieve through my fertility clinic bar injectables and IVF - we were due to start IVF first thing this month however I got my period (yay!!) first time on my own since before I went on the pill. I rang the clinic and the nurse was negative that it would happen again which upset me incredibly so Im really hoping it will return or we will fall and Ill never have to go back there.This is my first month doing OPKs - I have done them before and never got anything near a positive.From CD 11 I have had a faint second indictor line which as gotten darker each day - on CD17 I did one with FMU and got a strong positive (knowing this can be wrong) I did another in the evening (I have been doing all of them from 6.30 to 8.30pm) and got a pretty good positive and thought YAY! since then i have still been doing them hoping they would fade. They haven't. I did one this morning FMU CD21 - and the test is even darker then the control!!!! WAAAHH??I will do another one at 2pm? but I have good feeling it will be just the same second line as the others Ive had strong cramping on my right hand side - CD16 - CD 17.I dont want the fertility nurse to be right. I have a photo but i dont know how to attach it.Hope someone can help

    I get some sort of visible line through pretty much my whole cycle. Since yours has only just gone darker than the control line today it sounds like you are having a surge now. If the line has been almost as dark as the control until now it's still not a positive. Hopefully you will be ovulating in the next 12-24 hours... Time to get jiggy!!
