Trying to conceive

Hi, I'm new to this! This is my first month ttc and a few hours ago I used an opk and I just want to know if this is a positive or does it mean I'll be ovulating soon? Thanks

Can somebody help with this please?
I tested again yesterday and the line was quite faint. I have tested again today and it's even fainter than what it was yesterday.

This is my first month using opk and im yet to have a positive so sorry i cant compare this to my own. However i would say this looks positive and if you are now getting negative tests, id say this was your peak ovulation. What cycle day was the test taken? Do you use an app which shows your predicted day of ovulation? Or do you track your cycles every month?

Hi, thank you so much for responding. The test was taken on cd16 (Wednesday). So do I class yesterday (Friday) as 1dpo? If my positive test was on Wednesday that should mean I ovulated on Thursday, I think. We bd on Wednesday.
Do you really think it was a positive opk?
Yes I do use an app and it shows that I should be ovulating today, my cycles vary between 29 and 34 days so my cycles are averaging at 32 days according to my app.

Yes it does look positive, what time of day did you test? If you get one that has a dark line but youre unsure you can do another test in a few hours time as the line could get darker later on in the evening.
After a positive opk you are likely to ovulate in a day or 2 so ideally you should bd on the day of the positive and then again the following 2 days. Sperm do live for quite a few days so if you did only bd on wed you could have caught the egg so dont worry.
I would say the day after your positive is day 0 and then the day after is 1dpo.
If your app says ovulating today i would do a further opk just to be sure, just so you dont miss it.
Aswell as opk check cm as ewcm is a good indication you are ovulating

I tested at 5pm. What time of day is best?
Yes I'll test again today.
Thank you so much for responding x

Aw no problem.
Between 2pm - 3pm is best and then like i say you can always do one later on in the day of it looks as though your getting a positive result. Try not to drink much before testing too.
Looks like you bd at the right time though so fingers crossed. Hope you get your bfp 😊 just that dreaded 2ww to do now lol

Thank you so much, you've really helped!
I hope you get your bfp soon 😀

I'm 12dpo today and it looks like I'm out this month. I'm having period like pains and brown blood (within the last couple of hours).
I was so unwell on Sunday, had diarrhea and felt sick all day. I've been feeling weak and lightheaded ever since and felt really sick. I convinced myself I was pregnant! I took a test this morning but got a bfn.
Looks like af has come early 😢

What day is af due? Dont be too disheartened, youre not out yet. How much brown blood you had? If you are pregnant this could be implantation bleeding which is usually pink or brown spotting. As af not due yet, it maybe too soon for pregnancy test to pick up bfp.
If no af in the next few days, test again, use a sensitive test too (either a first response or superdrug) and first morning wee x

I think I ovulated on the 24th (Thursday).
Af is due Thursday.
Sorry, this is disgusting, blood is like small patches in my knickers and quite a bit each time I wipe.

Well it could quite easily be implantation bleeding but could also be the start of af. Its so annoying for us ladies that symptoms of pregnancy as so similar to af!!
Implantation only usually lasts a day or so and usually isnt enough to fill a pad. So if this starts to disappear i would test again tomorrow or thurs depending how patient you can be. Or if you feel the bleeding is becoming heavier or more red, i would expect af. Sorry, im really hoping its the first. Got everything crossed x

Thank you for getting back to me.
I think it is af as its getting a bit heavier. I'm just confused by the fact that I ovulated 12 days ago and my period is arriving now. Is this something that happens?
06/10/2015 at 19:51
Sorry to hear it appears to be af,
Yeah its normal, the phase after ovulation tends to be between 12 and 14 days. I think if its less than 10 it can be a concern so dont worry x
06/10/2015 at 20:14
Ok thank you. I didn't know that, I have a lot to learn!
How are you getting on?
06/10/2015 at 20:32
Aw no problem, its mad isnt it, we were always taught in school if you have unprotected sex you will get pregnant!! If only it was that easy!!
Im good thanks, im on cd24 but im not sure when i ovulated as i used opks but had varied results (they can be so confusing!!). My af due monday, so looking to test tuesday if no af x
06/10/2015 at 20:35
Haha yeah - if only!
Good luck to you, please let me know how you get on x
