    Hi I didn't want to read and run. I am new to this also but I use the digital ones. To me it does look like something is there on the bottom test. From what I understand the test will tell you that O is coming in the next 12-36 hours. Sorry I can't be of much help though. Good luck on ttc :)

    They are expensive... I just got my 2nd box today hoping that I didn't miss my O. But I truly believe I did and the test screwed me lol. Next month I am trying what someone else just suggested to me. I will buy cheaper ones and also the digital and use both in one day. One in the morning and one at night that way I won't miss it.

    The faint line may have been that you should have tested later although I can't say for sure. Everyone is different and thats what makes this such a challenge.

    :( I know this can be hard and very confusing, I'm new to it to and things can be hard sometimes. Honestly thats why I joined on here so that I could get a little help from others going through the same thing. Keep your head up and keep trying!! :hugs:

    HAHA yes that would be great if that happened. We can only wish!!

    I would say yes! BD day of and days after, you will have a pretty good chance. So don't stress... easier said than done I know, DH keeps telling me that everyday :)

    I wouldn't count yourself out so keep your fingers crossed and see what happens in two weeks. From what you are saying and if the test did come up positive or would have shortly after that time I would say that chances are pretty great that you had BD during the right time.

    I would say none of them are + But an OPK can not tell you if you have ov'd as it only tells you that you are going to. The line has to be the same or darker than the control line.

    My opks do not gradually get darker before I O. They are all over the place. Last month, I had the lightest opk on CD 15, with barely a line at all, and then the next day I got my positive.
    HTH.

    I don't think you have ovulated yet. Remember to hold urine for ideally 4 hours and limit fluid intake in that time.

    Good luck.

    I would still think you have a few days. When they are positive, that test line gets really, really dark. There usually isn't a doubt.

    Are you cd8 today? It's best to talk in cycle days as dates can get a little confusing. If you are only cd8 it is unlikely you have ovulated yet if you have a 28-30 day cycle. Keep testing. Are you checking CM/CP too?

    Normally AF comes between the 16th and the 18th....i didnt have one in October...and then i had one Nov. 6th...but it was short and i had the yucky stuff for like 2 days after it ended on the 9th...so im assuming i took the bottom one on the 9th or 10th and then i took the top one on the 12th. so is today the 13th...CD8?

    Your cycle starts (cd1) is the first day of red flow. If that was the 6th then you are on cd8. Past cycles do not affect which cycle day you are on.

    Have you stopped BC recently?

    That might explain the late and funny AF. I stopped in March and my cycles are still all over the place. I don't think you've missed ovulation. Keep using the OPKs. Are you checking CM/CP? It helps you to know ovulation is close.
