Is this a positive?

Postby Riss1993 » Sat Dec 17, 2016 3:34 pm

Hey ladies...this is my first time tracking my ovulation.
The line (last test) is definitely a lot darker than the others, but it doesnt scream positive to me...maybe tomorrow will be the positive? But regardless I just wanted to get some opinions.

Thanks!

When I can't quite tell like that, it usually just means I'm catching the very beginning of the surge. I'd count it as positive. I bet your next one will be darker than the control. :)

I took 2 more today and they were both lighter than the 2 from yesterday. Is it possible that a positive may not be the same or darker than the control line?

If you have a quick surge, it's possible to miss it, overnight for example. Have you seen other signs of fertility, like watery or ewcm, a high, soft, open cervix?

I'd treat it as a positive until you have proof it's not. Are you temping?

Oh, and btw, the first month I used opk's, I was so confused. I thought I missed O, because they got dark, but never positive, then I finally got two good positives a week later! Sometimes it takes a little trial and error until you learn how they work for you. Temping and watching for other fertility signs will help you confirm that you have O'd.

I'm not temping or anything. Yesterday was cycle day 17. I will keep testing though. Thanks for the tips!

Idk if this would count for CM but I did have some light brownish..little bit of pink discharge yesterday and today. Last month at this time I had tons of mucousy pink discharge which I had mistaken for implantation bleeding while it was probably just ovulation CM. I'm thinking that the discharge may indicate that I am ovulating

It certainly could! I occasionally get a streak of pinky cm after O.

I took another test today and it looks even darker than the other day. Wow I didn't realize it could get so dark and then lighten up and look even darker the next day! I'm guessing tonight or tomorrow will be a blaring positive.

Wow, yeah that's a kind of confusing pattern, but I think your right! I bet the next one will be darker than the control. Get busy, lady!
