    Default eBay OPKs - no positive

    I'm using OPKs from eBay, the Australian ones that come up at the top of the search ("yes.bw" seller) and have not got a positive result this month. I normally ovulate on CD16 (which is today) and have a pretty regular 30 day cycle. I used them last month and got positives on days 14-16 but testing several times per day I got widely varied results - strong positive, then only a faint line just a few hours later. This month I got a faint line on day 14 and 15 (testing 3-4 times per day to be sure I don't miss it if it's quick), now back to no line at all. It seemed like I had a surge but it wasn't high enough to register as a positive result. Has anyone experienced this with these tests? Is it still possible I'm ovulating or would you assume I still haven't ovulated?

    Just in case anyone reads this and wants to know, having not got a positive OPK this month at all, just a line half as strong as the control line for a couple of days, I got a BFP this morning so must have ovulated after all!!

    Fwiw I counted any line as a positive. I never got a line darker then the control. ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1421876759.554394.jpg

    That was the darkest line I ever got. Two weeks later I had my bfp.

    I found the eBay cheapies to be inconsistent and some didn't even work.

    But the ones from lullaby conceptions, yes you will pay more but they are so reliable.
