Hi everyone ....
I am TTC (second month off pill) my last cycle, which was first off pill was 31 days.
I am currently on day 14 and for last two days have had very faint line on Ov strip (no line first day I tried )
Today's seems dark but not sure if dark enough ... I am new to all this so wondered if someone could help me ... attached pic - sorry if TMI!!
Thank you and good luck to everyone xx

Good question as I started ov testing last month (my first month) and I was also confused as my cycles for the last 3 months since coming off the pill have been 35 day cycles and I had 2 tests very similar to yours (just don't seem to quite match the colour of the c line) which would have been day 19 and 20 for me although my calendar said my most fertile day should have been the Thursday (day 22) but I never got any lines at all for the rest of that week so I was confused as to whether I ovulated on the Monday/Tuesday.
Sorry I can't help with your question but just wanted to comment with me being in a similar situation. My AF is due in 2 days and me and my OH dtd at least every other day last month and actually dtd on day 17, 18 and 19 so hoping I covered it but we shall see in 2 days

Ooh fingers crossed for you Angela - Keep me posted!
I think some people only ever get this dark from what friends have said - it has got progressivley darker for last 24 hours - we dtd Sun and will today and probs for a few days consectively, so hoping like you, IO will have caught it! Also, been doing the every other day thing - I heard regardless of when you OV that is best way so swimmers aren't diluted!!??
I also think the calenders are a bit hit and miss and you should go by OV test seeing as that's personl to your body??

It's a bit difficult for me because the Monday was the first day I tested so I don't know what it was like before then so the lighter second line was the first thing I saw so had nothing to compare it to but as you know it says on the test if it's the same colour or darker it's a positive but mine wasn't much lighter so guessing I got my positive on the monday and tuesday as there wasn't a second line at all for the rest of that week.
Yes I agree I have seen a lot of people who have ov tested and have said it to be earlier or later than they expected it to be (usual 14 day). Us women are so different from person to person which can be frustrating as we can't compare to anyone.
My OH is loving the TTC haha but he may also get fed up of it if we aren't fortunate enough to conceive quickly. I'm not stupid enough to think I'm going to conceive straight away but it doesn't stop us from thinking we will
Good luck to you too and I shall keep you all posted!
