    Anyone get stuffiness around ovulation? I have woken up this morning feeling slightly headcoldy and I got a pos opk yesterday...I'm assuming it's probably because of a hormonal shift?!?!?!?! I usually get like this when I'm UTD.

    (Apologies in advance too for the symptom spotting that's no doubts going to come from me in the next couple of week)

    Sorry to hear @jussi

    Big congrats @hadesgirl

    As for me - AF due in 3 days and I'm pretty sure she's coming! No pregnancy symptoms or AF symptoms whatsoever - usually I'm going crazy symptom spotting by now.... Actually, I would have normally tested by now but I'm getting over the bfn's so am not going to waste any more tests! Will test late weekend if AF still hasn't arrived.

I tested again this afternoon using Predictor brand and this faint but still pink line appeared after 2 mins. this is the best pic I could get, looks slightly darker IRL. What do you think? I am 14 DPO today but am also getting period like cramps today.
    How are you doing today @vague?

    Sorry @jussi and @clucky_duck for next month!

    Congratultions @hadesgirl !
    @LeonieJane I am waiting for my doctors appointment, did a test this morning with FMU which was negative, but did one jut then with Pregnosis and it had the faintest line you ever did see.....so I am holding on to hope that I implanted late and it is just too early to tell

    On another note since I am peeing on stuff a lot I thought I would do an OPK - Got the biggest positive I have ever seen - which is weird because ovulation was detected by ultrasound 2 weeks ago! lol

    Vague I have never had a positive on a frer ever. Pregnosis was the one that I came to rely on and once they were dark enough I did the digi ones.

    Been having lots of o cramps this time around, they have subsided today so hopefully it's happened. We have been doing a sort of smep plan but not following to a tee as such. So bring on a TWW over analysing every little niggle and twitch lol

    @vague - I have actually heard of this happening before.
    I'm pretty sure it's happened to someone else on bubhub.

    Is it possible to get a positive OPK test if you are pregnant? You might be surprised to find out the answer to this one! It is in fact possible to get a positive OPK result if you are already pregnant! Weird, huh?
    How?
    Here’s why: OPK tests test for LH, and pregnancy tests test for hCG. Structurally, LH and hCG are very similar and the test can pick up on the hCG and mistake it for LH. Why these tests do not differentiate is because the hormones hCG and LH are very similar in makeup. Sometimes they are described as twins, except one twin is a little taller, or is wearing a hat. That is the only thing that makes them different, so OPK tests are able to detect both of those hormones.
    What Does This Mean?
    The fact that an OPK test can pick up LH and hCG means that you can get a positive ovulation test result when you are actually pregnant. Although you shouldn’t do it, in a pinch, you could technically use an OPK as a pregnancy test. However, pregnancy tests only pick up hCG, so you couldn’t use a home pregnancy test as an ovulation prediction test. Of course, you shouldn’t ever really do that, but it “can” work. It is always more reliable to take a pregnancy test as a pregnancy test, obviously, but you already knew that! It seems that OPK’s can’t detect hCG until it is at a pretty high level, and that level is well beyond what most home pregnancy tests would have already been able to detect. So, it can be used as a “back up” method, or if you would like to double check, but it shouldn’t be done as a primary method of pregnancy testing.
    Beware If You Do
    If you do choose to use an OPK as a home pregnancy test, be aware that the results are not always reliable. If you get a positive result, you might think that you are pregnant, but you could just be having an LH surge that is longer than normal. It is also possible that you could have ovulated twice in one month. It is possible that your ovulation just occurred later than normal. All of these things could give you a positive OPK and if you are using it for a home pregnancy test, you will think that you are pregnant when you are actually not. Most women who have confirmed that an OPK will work as a pregnancy test have already gotten a positive result from a home pregnancy test, so the OPK was not their first indication that they were pregnant, they were simply confirming it with the OPK.

    OPK's definitely detect HCG.
