    Your opks show when you have the surge which happens before the egg is there- either - it is showing your surge going up - at highest - and then back down again.... or if your body tried to ovulate and it didnt happen it will try again and sometimes these tries can overlap and make your surge seem really long. This is what I've heard anyway... good luck!

    3 days of positives is normal though it can signal the egg is having some trouble getting out of the gate as Daisy says. It probably hasn't happened if you are getting positives, but it could happen on the last day you get your positive. It could also happen 2 days later. Some women that stronger surges than others and if you are using an especially sensitive test, it might show you are having a prolonged positive when it might be normal for you.

    Hi, when I used FR opk's I always get a positive/almost positive result. I tested with three different types of kits this month - cheap internet ones at normal strength, CB digital and the last of the FR's from the previous month. Nothing showed up on the internet ones or CB (or my chart) but the FR ones would have me believing that I was ovulating. The month before, when I first used opk's I bought the FR ones - I eventually assumed that once you ovulate the LH surge stays high because every single one gave a positive result. Has anyone else found this?

    Which brand do you use? I think there are different strengths out there.

    I actually had 3 days of positive OPKs this month which made me panic a bit, especially the fact that my Clearblue Fertility Monitor didn't give me a peak this month. I am charting though and this has confirmed my ovulation which is a relief so maybe you're like me. I had 3 positives and the day I got a negative was the day I ov'd according to Fertility Friend x

    thank you diasy ... but iam scratching my head now ... sorry more questions coming :blush: lol

    i have gone to throw the opk in the bin as it is now out of the time window for checking and i can see i faint line ... i know a faint line doesnt mean ovulation so do you think its just picked up on the eggy going hun?

    thank you and sorry for all the question but i will get the hang soon :rofl:

    :hug:

    I had faint lines a lot while testing - everyone always has some lh - your just concerned about the surge (dark line). Looks good to me!! You get a surge of lh in your system that tells the egg to drop- so faint line doesnt really mean anything.
