I got these today in the mail and of course had to fulfil my POAS addiction. I am 10 dpo and this is what I got. Top one is water, just for good measure. The next one is a what appears to be a neg HPT. And the bottom 2 are the OPKs. I also had what looks like an implantation dip this cycle. I dont know what to think tho, I have never used the OPKs before, or temped! What do you girls think about this? Anyone have a pos OPK before the pos HPT? I know they say they turn pos before the HPTs!
Hooray for feeding the addiction! Well, I can say that I've learned that OPKs do not always turn positive before you get a positive HPT. Sometimes you will not get a positive OPK until the day you get a positive HPT. The website www.peeonastick.com explains the science behind it, and includes an experiment using OPKs as HPTs.
Also, I'm sorry but those OPKs are not positive. You have LH in your system every day, so many gals will always see a line on an OPK. What makes it positive is if the test line is AS dark or DARKER than the control line.
I know that you want them darker if you are testing for ovulation, but I was surprised to see anything! I did not know that some girls see a line through their whole cycle. Good info to know. Thank you for the efforts to keep me sane!
Actually... i had almost positive OPKS and kept getting darker that led to my BFP... so it is very possible!! i would say thats a VERY great sign! I would test daily and if they keep the color, or get darker (even slightly) you may be pregnant. although, some have had opks "nearly" positive and ended up with aunt flo....but not me : ) best of luck dear
I have used opk's for months and being an addict I would use them for fun at around 8,9,10,11 DPO and never get two lines.(light or med) But when I thought I was PG with my bean I took a HPT and got a - and took an opk and got a faint double line and every day it got darker til I was able to pick up a + HPT. So for my body I would never get any second line with an OPK til I was PG...so I think it's a good sign, it was for me. Good luck hun!!!
