1st time ovulation testing

This is my first time using ovulation tests. Do these look like positive tests? When you get a positive 2 days in a row does that mean you are still ovulating, or about to ovulate? I tested early because I felt a twinge and thought better safe than sorry since I missed my last ovulation. To my surprise, it looked like a positive test on CD7. I tested again tonight and it still looks positive. Any thoughts/advice is appreciated.

Cd7 test looks positive to me,cd8 is very close to positive but not quite there.
Every body is different but they do say that you ovulate 12-36h after your positive opk buut I had cycles where I had two days of positive opks and ovulated two days after my last positive opk,can't really know for sure unless you temp.
My advice to you is to keep taking opks just to be sure is not ur body gearing up to ovulation and not ovulating until later because cd7 is quite early for a positive opk.
My opks look very close to positive until arrived cd9-10 and they get lighter and only after that I get a real positive test.
This being ur first time using them I would continue taking them until I see the test line really faint.
Good luck.

Thanks Danaa! I bought a big box off of Amazon so I have plenty to keep testing. I also started tracking my BBT during my last cycle. So hopefully that will help me as well. My temp did drop on CD7 to 96.6 and this morning (CD8) it was 96.9. I'm just hoping that it will give me a clear answer between the opk's and the temps. I need answers to give to my Dr. so during my next cycle we can have a successful IUI.
