Hi, This is my first month of using OPK tests, im currently on day 13 of my cycle and using fertility2family tests. Now these tests do say to NOT use first morning urine, although i have been using it as i find it hard to "hold on for the 3 hours during the day) anyone know if it matters or not?
Last 3 mornings ive had strong positives with FMU they all seem about the same in strength and leading up to this i had a gradual line increese on the tests beforehand.
My question, Should i be coming down from a surge by now, its on 3 days now?
Anyone had the same thing happen?
Its too early to test for pregnancy right, we only started BDing 6 days ago?
We have been trying for 5 months now, im realy hoping that this is our month!!
I think it does matter if you use FMU or not. If it says not to, it means the test is sensitive enough to pick up small amounts of LH (which is always in our pee). It may want you to wait until later in the day to avoid false positives because of FMU concentration.
I would say test with SMU if holding it long enough is an issue. I found that with HPTs my SMU was the darkest of the day!!
Thanks for the reply! Ive got one ovulation test left and more ordered that will be coming early next week. I will try my second morning urine tomorrow morning and see what that gives.
Though my tests that were leading up to the 3 positive tests were all on FMU and they were a gradual line increase? i did 8 days of testing straight after AF finished before i got the 3 positive tests.
These test's that use lines are so hard to intperate. Maybe i should just bite the bullet and pay a bit more for the digitial ones?
Ive also had some cramping and twinges with a "full" feeling in my lower stomach area, though i must admit i say this to hubby each month too, i think alot of it is im realy wishing that this is our month, im sick of waiting.............!!!!
Yikes! You guys are right, this IS confusing. My first month testing I bought the First Response digital opk, and it gives you a clear "yes" or "no". So nice! I didn't know that once you get a "yes," however, it never works again! What a rip-off! LOL Soooo not the best deal. I did, however, learn during that cycle how to look for O signs, like egg-white mucus and the pinching that you're describing. Now I still use opks (partly because I'm totally addicted to peeing on stuff) but I can almost tell when I O down to the day.
Aims13h, your 3 tests sure do look positive, It is so confusing.
i tested this morning too and got another clear positive where the test line is darker than the control line. The pic below is this test i did this morning.
So this makes day 14 of my cycle, and my 4th day of very positive OPK tests?
Im wearing hubby out!!!! Poor man, making him BD like were newelyweds! LOL!!
Anyone get 4 days or more of Positive Ovulation tests and it turn into a early BFP Preg test?
Thanks everyone for the replies!
I hope it turns into our BFP Aims13h, best of luck to you too!!!
I had 4 days of positive opks the month I got pregnant. I believe I ovulated shortly after the first positive based on when I got my BFP. I think it is completely normal. If this is not your month though I would make sure you don't use FMU anymore because I have read that the LH concentrates too much over night and can give false positives.
