    Personally I wouldn't use it as an indicator of pregnancy. If you do make sure the test line is as dark as the control line as you would to detect Ov.

    HTH :)

    I have read that it sometimes works - but not always. I wouldnt rely on it.

    iam glad you asked this question nervous ... because i was wondering the exact same thing because i have been using opks and had nothing because i think i started using them early when trying to find out if ov'd and then i got the lines for ov and then it went back to nothing ..... and now i have been having what i hope are sypmtons (which are listed in my journal) so i thought i would try a opk and i have a faint line .... ooooh i do hope it means a :bfp: and these things are not just in my head :doh: but i think its too early as iam only 5/6 dpo :cry: i truely feel like iam on a rollcoaster :hissy:

    good luck everyone for the :bfp: this month sending loads of :dust:

    I used an opk at 12dpo, i got a positive so i straight away used a hpt and that was positive too so yes they can work, although dont feel upset if you dont get a positive opk as it can take longer to pick up hormone than a hpt xx

    I had this when I was ttc. Check out peeonastick.com. A faint like on an opk doesn't count it needs to be dark like a pos opk as some people can get a faint line on opk's all cycle. Hope you don't think I was sticking my nose in.
