Hi there I am new to this, my husband and I have been TTC for the past 17 months now! I have very irregular cycles and only having periods that are hormone induced. I've been doing the whole ovulation kits bit but have only caught one ovulation with a clear blue digital a few months ago! (I have been trying a more cheaper route due to clear blue getting pricy!) Due to not really having a idea of when I ovulate I tested every day this month starting CD10! I just wanted to post my strips and see if anyone could look at them and tell me what they think, I believe I may have positive on there but idk!

The 4th one up from the bottom looks like the + then it fades out again. Did you BD around that day? Good luck!

That's what I was thinking! We did BD the day before and three days before! I'm keeping my hope high that this might be the month!

I don't think that you've had a positive yet. I get a lot of almost positives consistently throughout the cycle (thanks PCOS and Clomid), but when I get a positive, it is really noticeable. The fourth from the bottom looks close, but I wouldn't call it the same darkness as the test strip. I was really confused too, but here is a photo of my positive test from the other day, compared to the almost positive ones I had the previous week. Hope that helps!

Yea, I've been very confused...out of all the testing I have done I have never gotten a positive that I know of :( never one that looked like yours! The darkest one I have ever recived is the one in my pic...I've continued to test and I had the LH line sorta come back! I just don't understand and am very fustrated...

I totally understand! I have had three days of positives, with only in the morning being positive and then negative in the afternoon, twice in the past week and a half. I guess our bodies are going to do what they're going to do, but I wish I would ovulate already so I can stop having sex every night! lol

Oh my! That is odd! The past couple of months we have been BD ever three days, in hopes that we would just catch ovulation since can't seem to find it Lol we are feeling burnt out too.

Are you testing multiple times a day? You may just have a very short surge and be missing it! My own personal experience is that it will be darkish in the afternoon, then if I test again around midnight I will finally have a true positive, and then it's gone the next day. So my surge is very short.

Yes I am testing twice a day, around 11am and then again around 5pm, trying my best to keep it right around they same time ever day...since I have posted this I'm loosing my mind! Lol I am still getting what seem to be almost surges but just not dark enough to be a peak! I'm on CD 27, I'm at the point of not even knowing what to do next other than kee testing everyday.

Im in the same boat, except I have been having positive OPKs for the past four day. I'm on CD 24 and I am not sure what is going on. I definitely haven't ovulated yet, so I guess my body is just being weird. With my last pregnancy, I didn't ovulate until CD 28, so maybe that's what is going on this time too.

It's possible that your body gears up to ovulate and then has trouble releasing the egg and then tries again. How long are your cycles normally? Do you temp or anything?
