Me and my husband have recently started ttc these opks are so confusing!! I've been taking them for about a week or so and this is my second cycle after coming off the pill. I've attached pic of the opks I've done, one looks positive but I'm not sure, it's almost the same colour but not quite? sorry I'm so confused hope you can help me lol xx

Hi that top opk is dffinately positive looking at the picture. Even if to you it's not quite as dark as the control line it will be this afternoon/ 2mrw. You are definitely at your peak in the fertile window probably from Sunday until Friday so get plenty of bd in !!! Good luck hun 🍀
Heres mine from this morning (cd12) similar cheapie test strip so I know egg will have released by 2mrw so game over within 48 hours!! Into the nightmare 2 week wait 😬

this is the darkest mine went last friday is this pos?

That looks positive to me not everyone's tests go as dark or darker than the control line:)
As soon as my lines darken I start be as often as possible until they fade again. You are definitely in your fertile period with lines that dark xxx

Thank you so much for your response, so based on people that have already been using opks, how long do they stay a noticeable line for? Or are they always noticeable and get as dark as possible around ovulation? The problem I've got is I don't know when the darkest stick was done (it started off light so I threw it away thinking it was another dud negative). I did an opk this morning and was quite light but did another just after lunch time (pic to follow) and it looks a bit darker? I'm so confused as I have only just started ttc (this is my second cycle off the pill) so I'm not too sure what I am looking out for? Last month I thought I had all the signs and was issued with a BFN so I'm trying not to be too hopeful atm xx

Ok, so following on from the above, this is today's opk. Thoughts welcomed please ladies xx

Lh is always in your system so I always get a second line but faint. I test from cycle day 7 with First morning urine and at 2pm which is optimum time to test having held wee for 2 hours. My line darkens around cd 10 and gets as dark as control line sometimes darker by cd12 they then fade with 3 days and very faint again after 5 days from ovulation.
You need to get busy as soon as your line is darkening until it's positive then another 2 days after to be sure!! From first positive opk you have 12-24 hrs until egg releases then at most about another 12 hrs to catch it!!
The 4 days before a positive is most important and the day of your positive so sperm is waiting!!!😉
Has this helped?!!!

Hi missmyangels that helps greatly. Better luck next month as think I may have missed the window :( I threw it away so didn't know it had got darker until I spotted it this morning, I started using the OPKs last Tuesday and dtd Friday and Sunday because hubby working late a lot at the min so hard to bd as much as poss :(, never know may have been lucky but I doubt it, so, the opk attached is this a negative? Sorry for all the questions xx
26/10/2016 at 13:38
Yes it's lighter do another 2mrw afternoon just to make sure
26/10/2016 at 13:43
If they continus to fade you know you are in the tww!!
From first positive opk the next day is classed as ovulation day the day after that is 1dpo (day past ovulation!) confusing eh at first!!

Missmyangels you are a star thank you so much for all of your advice. I'm slightly disappointed I didn't realise they didn't get as dark as the control line that's what I'd been waiting for 😫 I'll do another tomorrow and if it's lighter just hope af comes quick so I can try again!! This whole trying stuff is so hard 😢

following from the above, i took missmyangels advice about taking another opk to be sure, its been a funny few days so I forgot and just took one this afternoon, pic attached, what do you ladies think? this was within 10 mins and the darkest I've seen it, can I take it this could be a positive? 😁 Xxx
30/10/2016 at 15:05
That is definitely positive:) you've 12-24 hours now for your egg to release 😉 and catch it!!
2 days you are in the 2ww!! 😬
30/10/2016 at 15:11
Missmyangels thank you so much!!!! I was genuinely gutted earlier in the week as thought I'd missed it as they were quite light after that but like I say that's today's one and went dark pretty quick 😃 Defo going to get some bding in tonight hehehe wish me luck 😃😃😃 xxxx
