faint line on ovulation test stick......


Hi girls,

Just wondered if anyone can help me out and answer a query i have?

I have been using Clear Blue ovulation test sticks this month and up until today i've only been getting a line comign up to show that the test has worked. Well today i got this line again but also a faint blue line next to it. Can anyone tell me if this does mean i've ovulated or if this means that i'm about to and maybe if i keep testing i'll get a clear blue line tommorow rather than a faint one?

sorry if this is a bit muddled but i wasn't quite sure how to explain it?

Thanks girls xx

You need to keep testing until the second line is darker than the control, then you ov 12-36 hours after that. Good luck. XX

Hi

I have been using opks for a couple of cycles now and for me the test line is never darker than the control line. I only get 2 lines for about 3 days around cd 14. I asume that that is when my surge is and i ov cd15/16. Maybe you are the same. I have started to temp this month to try and get a clearer picture.

If you have EWCM then get

Hope opks work better for you hun

Hi girls,

I can see that these posts were written almost a year ago, but I hope I will have your response on question.
I've been using OPKs from day 10 of my cycle. Last two days the second line was coming out more clearly (the most darker one yesterday) but still faint compared to control. Today is day 20 (my average cycle is 33 days) and I was expecting the second line to come out more darker i.e. surge today but instead it was more faint than yesterday's. I've been using Clearblue (2 line) tests with my first morning urine at the same time every morning (as per instructions). I am aware that if ovulation line is not of same intensity as control line it means that there is no surge. However, I never got to the stage of surge it came out faint and noe it seems gone. Does this mean that I ovulated yesterday or I actually I never ovulated? Will I expect to ovulate at this stage (day 21 and later?)
I appreciate your experiences. Many thanks.

I had the same experience. And I know I ovulated because I fell pregnant that cycle. It's possible that the timing of your surge was such that the tests didn't pick it up, eg if you had the surge about 12 hours after your darkest test. Anyway, chances are you have ovulated or are about to. Hope that helps a little.

Oh and welcome to bnb! Lots of to you!
