Trying to conceive

Hi everyone! New to this, bare with me, I might babble on a bit. So, I'm not technically ttc but after years of battling to find the right BC since I was diagnosed with PCOS at 15 I have finally given up on it. I've been completely off BC for three months now and had intended to use OPKs to track my cycle as an alternative form of BC. Then I found out I was doing it wrong....and that OPKs are not that accurate with PCOS. In the past I had used OPKs for a while and found that I always got a positive between CD 13-16. Recently, the first cycle I tested I didn't get a positive until CD 19. This cycle I thought I got a positive on CD 10-11, which I thought was strange and very early. And part of me wants to just not worry about and leave it up to nature or fate or whatever so I stopped testing. BUT, I am also a peeing on a stick addict and I'll just randomly test for no reason in particular. The top photo is from last night, (actually about 12:30-1:30 AM) with the wondfo brand. Now, I have heard about getting bad batches of tests and false positives and that sort of stuff. I have ordered wondfos bundles probably three or four times and I have NEVER had a single evap line, dye run, false positive, invalid result, or ANYTHING like that at all. NEVER. And last night, I got what's in the first picture. The opk was negative but had a really bad dye run on the right side of the control line, the hcg in the middle had a horrible striping to it but if that striping wasn't there it almost looks like a faint positive. So I took another hcg cuz the first one freaked me out and it didn't mess up but I swear I kept seeing an extremely faint almost not even a shadow of a line on it. But it was dark and I figured my eyes were playing tricks on me. Tested again today (bottom picture, also NOT first morning urine) and the OPK shocked me cuz I thought I had already ovulated. And again the hcg had a huge dye run/stripe of color that stayed behind. I wanna say that I don't see a second line on it in person but while taking pictures I swear the is a slight deviation in the pixels that looks like a second line! Im hesitant to trust the wondfos right now and Im currently sitting in 10" of snow in NC or I would go buy something else to test with. According to my period ap I am on CD 20 and my period is scheduled to start in 10 days. Any advice/opinions are more than welcome. I'm 27 and I really don't want to be 40 with a ten(or less than) year old. And I know it can be very hard/impossible with PCOS so I really wanna get on this baby making in the next 2-3 years. Thanks in advance!!
