Hi, i am currently 10dpo (according to the ovulation calender), i had just bought ovulation tests, and i wanted to see how they worked, so i tried one out it came up positive (i think), so i tried another one today, and i think its also positive. My periods are regular. And i'm really confused. What can this mean? I have attached a photo of the test. Please help. Any advice is good advice (im new to ttc).

Thank you,
Kay xx

I'm pretty new to ttc too but I would do a pregnancy test, I think ovulation tests can show positive ovulation when you are pregnant (dont take my word for it though as im not 100% on that, I'm sure one of the more knowledgable ladies will be along soon to help too) smile

You do get a second, lh surge around the time AF is due but you could be pregnant. Get a pregnancy test.

Kayxo Mon 08-Jun-15 08:13:52

Thanks ladies. When is the earliest i can test? Ive read online you can get mega early symptoms, like twinges in your ovary area. And i have had that for a few days now, i never ever get this. And i just feel so tired! Will wait and see what test says - will wait til the wicked witch doesn't show up though before testing!

I'd wait until 14DPO to try and avoid a false negative.

It could be a large number of factors.

Firstly as you have never used them before, it could be that you might need a less sensitive opk, some women (normally with pcos) have this.

Secondly it is possible that you did not ovulate yet and you are about to now.

Thirdly that you might have ovulated earlier than you think and you are pregnant (if this was the case you would get a positive hpt now, test after holding wee and not drinking too much, if you are pulling positive opks due to pregnancy, the test will be clearly positive any time of day)

Or finally as some others have already said you can get positive (more usually near positive) opks just before af arrives.

If you are just using an ovulation calculator based on your normal cycle length, these can be very wrong, opks may help a bit possibly.

If you are getting ovary twinges, I would think that the most likely scenario is that you are ovulating now!

Keep us posted Kay!

Kayxo Mon 08-Jun-15 15:19:18

I will keep you posted! I never usually get twinges around ovulation day, but its been going on a few days now. I will wait and see what happens. Don't have my hopes up anyway!

sebsmummy1 Mon 08-Jun-15 15:23:48

Agreed. You could be pregnant or you get a second surge before your period is due ( I have no idea why).

Kayxo Mon 08-Jun-15 15:30:46

I think i will wait til AF arrives/doesnt arrive. Then i wont be as disappointed. But i just feel like this is my month! Ive also got some other symptoms. Like fatigue, headache, backache and change in CM. so, hopefully. But i'll try not get my hopes up!!

ClareAbshire Mon 08-Jun-15 15:34:00

I got a positive OPK when I was pregnant. Go and get a first response!

Kayxo Mon 08-Jun-15 15:34:29

Also, as mentioned above, it could be a second LH surge.. If this is the case, would i not be pregnant at all? Or do you still get an LH surge??

Kayxo Tue 09-Jun-15 22:58:08

I tested with hpt today. BFN. am i out or not? I am 11dpo today.

willitbe Wed 10-Jun-15 00:06:38

Are you still getting positive opk tests?

If so, then you most likely need to get less sensitive opk tests.

If not, then you may not be 10dpo, but you may just have ovulated!

Neither means you are out this cycle, but just that your opk test means nothing in terms of pregnancy (hence why they are not supposed to be used for detecting pregnancy!).

Can you test again with another opk and post the picture?

When I conceived DS (no2) I used OPKs. Was 38 at the time and wrongly assume it would take quite a while.

I thought the OPKs were broken because they kept showing positive and I stopped using at 9DPO and did a pregnancy test which was very faintly positive. grin

Not saying you're definitely pregnant but it's quite likely

I wouldn't (couldn't) wait. Besides POAS is fun. Or at least I think so.

Let us all know.thanks

Kayxo Wed 10-Jun-15 00:39:24

I will take another opk and post picture when i next pee! . I also have white creamy/slimey CM. TMI i know!! Could this mean anything at all??

slithytove Wed 10-Jun-15 00:46:08

I think you are ovulating

Kayxo Wed 10-Jun-15 01:55:51

So basically these are my tests (two strips), however, the other test is an early response test and is a googled picture. My test looks like that- but its a fainter line on mine. (On this particular test the test line is a cross for a positive. I have a very very very faint line. What is this!?!?

BabyBumpHopeful Wed 10-Jun-15 02:14:02

I'd say you're pregnant (hence the vertical line on the cross one) and that the IC isn't sensitive enough to show up. Try a FRER.

Kayxo Wed 10-Jun-15 02:37:43

The blue line on the early test - didnt come up straight away i dont think. But ive read evap lines are colourless and mine is def blue. Does this mean im pregnant? Im going to test again with clear blue.

Kayxo Wed 10-Jun-15 04:13:35

I took another boots own early response test - negative. And a clear blue digi - not pregnant. I dont know whats happening.

willitbe Wed 10-Jun-15 10:31:31

OK the blue cross tests, are very well known for giving blue evap lines and or dye runs. They have the very narrow blue line to one side of the the thick line. just like in the googled picture you posted. These tests are not good to use, as they are misleading.

The Boots own brand is fairly good and sensitive, if that is negative, I would say that you can take that as a true reading currently.

Clear blue digitals are not that sensitive, and so would not show up an early result.

Regarding the internet cheapy tests, these tend to be prone to evaporation lines, so only read in the first 10 mins and discard.

Another word of warning, don't dip in the same pot or place a wet opk next to an hpt it will give a false positive on the hpt.

I think that if you are pregnant you are still testing way too early. Time to leave it at least a few days if possible and test again. If the positive opk was due to a secondary lh surge, then your period will arrive in the next couple of days.

If the positive opk on Monday was due to a late ovulation, then you could be waiting another couple of weeks for your period or positive test......

You need a little bit of patience with this right now.
Some women never get a positive test and have to wait a couple of months for confirmation of pregnancy..... try not to fret before your period is even due to arrive!!!!!

When you do test again don't use a blue dye, or digital test.

I hope you get a clear bfp soon.

It was the boots brand i used that gave me the really faint line i think is an evap line. Im just going to wait it out ��
