    Default First time OPK user... please help!

    I was given a bunch of opks off my sil and I've never used them before. According to my p tracker I should have ovuated maybe in the last 3 days... or maybe today.... or tomorrow Lol!! So I thought I'd give it a go but I basically have no idea what I'm doing.... does this look like a positive?? And if it is then what does it mean? I'm ovulating now?? Or I have already, I will soon???

    Please help! Not a great quality photo but the best I could do!
    Tia.

    I just started using OPK's the other day too. I think that looks like a negative result tho the test line needs to be the same as or darker than the control line for it to be positive. If it is, then it indicates you should be ovulating in the next 24-36 hours so it's time to BD

    Thanks for that! That's not too bad I may have ovuated a few days ago. Now I know how to use them at least!

    Yes what miss Megan said.
    Make she you take the test in the afternoon though. Also check your CM that's also a good indication your about to ovulate. Clear like egg whites. Have fun!

    I agree that looks like a negative, it should be darker. If it was darker a few days ago then you could have had you LH surge and ovulated, now the LH is reducing. Or, you could still be waiting for your LH surge.
    i found OPKs difficult to interpret and if you don't pee on it at the right time you could miss the LH surge.

    After 12 months of trying, I've just moved onto the clear blue fertility monitor this month. This takes the guess work out of interpreting OPKs and gives up to 4 high and 2 peak fertility days. I recommended it if you don't have much luck with OPKs. They can be expensive and not available in store in Australia but if you check out eBay or gumtree you can pick them up cheaper.

    Good luck
