    Default Need OPK advice pls :)

    I've been looking at these for too long & need some fresh eyes....

    These look negative right?

    CD12 & CD13 look positive to me & CD14 looks slightly negative. What do u guys reckon? I still haven't had a temp shift yet either

    I also tested the same samples with First Response & when the test time was up they were all negative. When I looked at them way after the developing time, even today, CD12 looked positive, CD13 looked slightly negative & CD14 looked totally negative. So even tho it was way over the time, it corresponded to the Forelife OPK results. Can I even rely on these seemingly reliable results?

    Is CD13 the last positive day?

    CD 12 definitely positive in my opinion, CD 13 could go either way and CD 14 negative in my eyes?! Do you have any other brand tests to compare?

    I just took these now....

    (The lines took like an hour to come up like this, rather than the 5-8 mins it says in the instructions).

    It's really weird, when I take the photos, CD13 looks negative under light, but looks positive under a shadow. It's also sorta dark (darker than control) on the left side, but fades to light on the other side of the line.

    Hmmm this is certainly a tough one. I still think that CD 12 on both is a sure positive. It is a bit of a concern however, that it took so long to come up. Whenever I have used the first response OPK's and had a positive it has come up immediately right before my eyes, way before the time limit. May be a dodgy batch? What time of day did you test?
    I have no experience with the forelife brand so I can't comment on them sorry.
    On the no temp shift, fx it will rise tomorrow. Remember OPK predicts O in the next 24-48hrs.
    Have you been BD'ing though just in case?
    The only other thing is that you didn't O cos surge wasn't strong enough?
    Sorry I'm at a loss with not many answers. I'd keep testing and BDing another couple of days to be really sure.

    Did them roughly the same time except for CD12 cos I was working late :/

    CD11 4pm
    CD12 10:30pm
    CD13 6:30pm
    CD14 6:30pm

    I've read that the Forelife ones are super sensitive, I had 4 days of positives last month.

    We bd'd CD 6, 8, 10, 12 & 14
    On CD12 I had a bit of a cramp starting on my left hand side while we were dtd, which I remembered having horrible cramps during one time last month too, can't remember when tho.

    Hopefully I get my temp rise tomorrow, they've been a bit erratic this month, even during AF. Last month was like my first 'perfect' cycle so I had high hopes for this month

    FC for you! Sounds like you have lots of BDing to cover your potential O. Goodluck x
