    Ok so i thought i would poas any stick will do lol and have lots of opk's.

    These sticks had gone back to having no colour at all after ovulation from a strong positive.

    The top one is from 6dpo middle one 7dpo and bottom one todays at 8dpo.

    Can't wait to see if tomorrows one is darker than todays. Has anyone else had this happen?

    I have a fade in pattern to an almost positive between 8 and 11 cycle days then I fade back out until I get an unmistakable positive at Cd 16. It messes with my mind, but it's not unusual to get patterns like this. I still test from about 8 days on because I can get a load of test strips online for cheap :) good luck!

    If you're thinking to use an OPK like a HPT then OPK must be POSITIVE . I often had OPK like yours during 2 ww and I wasn't pregnant. I wish you :baby:

    Thanks, i know they have to be positive and i know mine aren't positive yet. I was just saying they were getting darker again from no line at all. Ive had my positive already, so was just curious as to why they were now getting darker again? Oh well not to worry i guess its just one of those things?

    I'm very curious about OPKs as HPTs. From what I have read they are only good in predicting pregnancy after your missed AF. This is because most HPTs are actually more sensitive than OPKs. Therefore an OPK will only be positive after your HPT is. Confusing. I took one at 7 DPO and there was no test line at all. I am praying that does't indicate I am not pregnant.

    It is interesting isnt it? I keep reading that HPT's are more sensitive than OPK's too but i have also seen people post their positive OPK's on here at like 8dpo or 9dpo? Hmmm i will do another OPK today and see what the result is, i'm hoping it will be a positive today as yesterdays was close when it had dried. It will be interesting to see if this leads to a positive hpt or not?

    that sounds promising to me too. i have read loads about opks going positive and resulting in bfp. Fingers crossed.

    Have you tested with a frer yet?

    Yes it does sound quite promising, i will see what todays OPK looks like. I have been testing on ic ones and i have a clear blue + or - one but i'm scared to use that one now cos of the things ive read about blue dye tests? I have just got some cheap Wilkinsons hpt strips as they are cheap for just testing with, but if i get a hint of a line i will buy a frer.

    this can happen but unless it gets really dark then it could just be the tests picking up normal range of LH levels, if your thinking pregnancy then leave it a few days then try a pregnancy test.
