OPKs - do they gradually get darker?


Hi ladies

We are TTC #2 and Iíve been tracking ovulation with OPKs like I did with #1. According to my Ovia app, today I am at the peak of fertility, however I still havenít had a positive OPK, or one even close to positive.

Does the test line get darker gradually or suddenly get darker around ovulation/spike in LH?

Iím worried that Iím not ovulating. For #1 I didnít ovulate on my own, so had to have letrozole. However since having her, my cycles have been more ďnormalĒ so was hoping it wouldnít be an issue again. But now Iím not so sure :/

Thanks x

Some womens LH surge builds up over the course of a few days . Some on the other hand get a very quick surge.

Test morning and afternoon too so you have a better chance of catching the surge . Good luck

Hi, Iíve attached my cycle from last month. Iíd say mine gradually got darker but every bodies body works differently. Iíve never needed to use a digital one and I know they are expensive but maybe worth a go if you can afford it, maybe alongside traditional cheapies? Good luck.

Iíd recommend testing twice a day as you can miss the surge if you are only testing once every 24 hours. You look close, but none of these are positives. Occasionally you just donít ovulate for whatever reason, I donít know why that happens. I think if you canít get a positive again next month maybe book in to see your gp, just because of the extra help you needed last time. Good luck!!
