help with opks?!


Hi all.
I had a MC 6 days ago.. I ordered some OPKs and they've arrived today, so of course the POAS addict that I am has used one just to try it out.... as you can see in the pic attached there IS two lines there, but I'm under the impression that the line has to be as dark if not darker than the control line to signify positive, right?

So my question is - is this a sign my body is gearing up to O? do I take 1 daily? Should we start BDing now or when it goes positive?

I haven't taken a pregnancy test to confirm negative as they said to wait 3 weeks, however my HCG was 470 on Saturday and down to just 45 by Tuesday. I'm assuming it's down to less than 5 now, although I haven't confirmed. Really don't want to waste my last clear blue for nothing. Dr isn't going to do another blood test as they said there's no need

Can you get hold of a cheapie Hpt ? Because if there is hcg in your wee still then opks will more than likely remain positive or near positive if you can rule out hcg then test and if the opk is pos then you’ll be probably ovulating again. Remember you’re very fertile after a MC

Yes hoping to get some IC hpt's in the post soon so will definitely test when I get them.

I've read so many positive stories online about getting pregnant within 2 weeks of a MC and going on to have a healthy baby... praying it will be the same for me
