Do the lines on the Clear Blue Digi Test mean anything?


Was just thinking - do the lines on the clearblue ovulation test mean anything? I keep getting negative (no smiles) but when I take the stick out I notice there are 2 lines I dark (I guess is the control line) and 1 faint (I guess maybe its the test line).

can you use those line though you know like u look at the cheapie stick ones, and you can think oh good at leats theres something happening then wait for it getting darker.... reason I ask is my cheapie sticks show nothing, so if the clearblue is showing at least another line then does that mean its getting closer?

Both the clear blue opks and hpts will have two lines on them even if they are negative. I think I read it on peeonastick.com that its work differently to the others, being it reads the colour intensity of the two lines to determine whether its positive or not, so there will always be two lines regardless.

Hi I recently got 3 positives on my clearblue digi opks and when I ejected the test stick both lines were as dark as each other.

When it was negative there were two lines but one was darker than the other.

hope this helps xx

Hmm, I am going to post a slightly different reply here.

Even though they say not to go by the lines - I think that if the lines are getting progressively darker you are getting closer and closer to your LH surge. I used to use the Clearblue Digital OPKs when I was TTC Tristan. If I was nowhere near the LH surge, the control line would come up really dark and the test line would be none existent. Gradually the test line would get darker and darker until it was as dark (or darker) than the control line and those were the days I got a smiley face on the test! I always considered the smiley face the sign of the LH surge though - not before.

A good tip someone gave me was to start BDing a day or so before your expected LH surge as then the sperm has time to make their way up to meet the egg for when it is released. A lot of women wait until they get the positive before they BD and it can take a while for the sperm to get up and meet the egg (a lot of people think the sperm just shoot up there in seconds, but it can take up to a day or so) and by that time the egg might not be at its optimum condition. So I would say, BD a day or so before and when you get your positive, to try and 'cover all bases.'

Sorry for the rambling post - I hope it made sense!

Good luck getting that BFP!

ive seen the second line on the OPK but it does say on the box dont read by the lines

i had the second line alittle darker last few days but then its fading more and more and i just dont bother reading it because the box does say dont read the lines.
