So confused about ovulation tests .. Is this a negative or positive ? This has been my strongest line yet.. When's the best time to dtd we did it last night so hopefully be ok ..

If the line closest to your hand is the control line then thats a negative... The test line has to be at least as dark, or darker than the co trol linefor a positive result

Hi, I got one like yours on the 14th and on the 15th it was faded and yesterday it was very faint so I think it may be positive as according to my app I was to o on the 14th so if this is your strongest line and it starts to fade then I would say it's positive x

Thanks for Ur replies I got this one today which is Deffo a postive so would last night and tonight be enpugh ? Do the tests mean Ur ovulating or about to? X
17/08/2015 at 16:37
Yep that's your positive. Once you get a positive it means you will ovulate in the next 12-36 hours. The egg can the survive for 24 hours max so i would say bd tonight & tmw morning if possible to give you the very best chance, if not... Yesterday & today will give you a good chance.

I've fallen pregnant 7 times so far of which 6 the ovulation kits worked!! I use the cheapie opks then when I think I surge I check using clear blue digital and they haven't let me down yet!! I have 3 gorgeous kiddies 12,9 and 4 and I'm trying for my 4th!! Sadly I've started to miscarry early on but I won't give up!! Tww is "two week wait" the nail biting two weeks of symptom spotting and hoping for a bfp ( big fat positive)!!
good luck x

I had been testing since cd 7 all of which there was barely any lines until I got the darkest one on the 14th and then a bit fainter on 15th and again barley a line on 16th so hopefully it was. I'm due on 28th so fingers crossed and good luck to all x

As my line starts to darken I try to stick to every other day. I have a 28 day cycle I start testing day 10-11 I always get my surge on 12/13/14 then fades pretty quickly. Start at least 4 days b4 , during ovulation and I carry on a couple of days after for luck!! So from day 10-16 as much as possible!!
17/08/2015 at 23:09
Good luck girls x AgithaButton what opk do you use? I use the cheap strips but when I see a dark line as close to test line as possible next morning I do clear blue and I always get a smiley then u know for sure x
17/08/2015 at 23:46
I use the cheap ones from eBay and always first morning urine. I'm also on my second pack of seven seas trying for a baby so if no luck this month I'm going to make gp app x

Best not to use fmu with the cheap dye opk's agitha... Lh surges are most accurately detected in the afternoon / evening... You should test between 2 & 6pm... Try & stick to the same time each day & don't pee or drink anything for at least 2 hours before testing.
the only ovulation tests that say you can use fmu (& have worked accurstely for me with fmu) are the cb digital.
18/08/2015 at 13:39
Yeh don't use the fmu .. I was going to temp but I havnt this month .. Fingers crossed for every one! My test this morning was like my first pic on here does that mean Ur lh has came down and u have ovulated xx
18/08/2015 at 13:43
Oh really sw2? I just assumed fmu would be best so I'll know for next month now. Thanks for advice x
18/08/2015 at 14:05
Katie... A negative test after a positive means that your lh surge is over. Doesn't 100% guarantee that you have ov yet (as it may not be 12-36 hours from the e act prak of lh) but it is pretty likely That you have.
For both of you girls... There's a really great thread running called 'ovulation test strips part 3' which you both might find helpful to go on... All women ttc & using opks & support each other through the month. I was on there when it started (part One) & found it so nice to have other women to talk to who were going through the same.

always test mine at 2.30 before I collect my kiddies from school. I don't wee from 12 always get a good result then and I have a drink with lunch but nothing else until I've done test x
