    Hi girls,
    Using opks as hpts has always kind of fascinated me because they are cheaper. Here are some pics. I got my BFP on the FRER at 11dpo. I had been peeing on the opks for a couple of days before because I was trying to hold off on really 'testing'. :haha:
    Anyway, I think it kind of answers the question that you are more likely to get a pos hpt before a pos opk as hpt.

    Funnily enough, I've really never had a pos opk to pinpoint ov. I pick the darkest one that month and call it the pos.

    Very cool! And congrats!! I like that OPKs can be used as a HPT, too. The day after this BFP I got 10 HPTs and 25 OPKs (all Wondfo) in the mail so I use them if I have the desire to POAS still without using up all my HPTs! :blush:

    Ok, so Im confused now, I looked at the picture from the first post, and so I figured I would try it seeing as how I still have some ovulation tests left. I got a positive ovulation test on the 28th and the 29th. I continued testing after then and it was always negative. So today I went in and tested with a ovulation test and its almost a positive again?! Its not as dark as when I got my positives on the 28th and the 29th but there is def. lines! Now why would I test positive again after I ovulated 6 days ago?? could this mean Im pregnant ?

    Some people get pos opks leading up to AF. If you were pregnant, you would probably get a pos hpt before you get a pos opk. BUT, if it turns out that you are pregnant, please post your pos opks as hpts here!!!! Have you tested with a hpt yet?

    I got a faint positive HPT at 8dpo. Got another one today at 9dpo. Also took another OPK, and Im posting a pic, its weird cause after I ovulated, and got a positive OPK, I continued taking the OPK's daily, and they were all negative, then about 4 days ago they started to get darker again...funny...makes ya wonder...heres a pic tho ladies, this was just done about 10 minutes ago. Btw this is a OPK test:

    if this was towards me...my first opk after O was positive at 5 dpo...and stayed positive until 23 dpo when my first HPT FINALLY picked up my pregnancy lol I tested diligently with my hpts from like 9dpo until 18 dpo..skipped 19, tested again from 20 to 23 dpo when I got a faint line, then at 25 dpo i got normal lines on my hpt but the opks were pos the whole time, i just didnt take pics of all of the them lol

    I did another opk yesterday and the same thing happened. The test line came up super duper dark as soon as the pee touched it. I'll post a pic later too.
