thought they were only supposed to test positive for a a couple of days?

fanjodisfunction Wed 13-Jun-12 11:36:31

are the two lines the same darkness? Which opks are you using?

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 13-Jun-12 11:39:50

there was def a darker one at the weekend, but the rest of them are very dark too.

i know it needs to be as dark as the control line to mean positive.

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 13-Jun-12 11:40:06

ive got the cheap ones off ebay

fanjodisfunction Wed 13-Jun-12 11:47:22

I use those ones, I wait for the dark line and then I dont test anymore so dont know if they continue to show a dark line after.

Your not pg are you? My friend on another thread thought she was ovulating it turned out she was pg, ppks can be used as HPT.

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 13-Jun-12 11:49:48

no i don't think i can be pg, i've only had sex on 7 9 11 june.
i thought i had the darkest line onthe 10th
[tried to have sex that day but poor old dh wasnt up for it that night.

I found with the opks from ebay that they were always accurate within a day os two, I also go by cm.

How long have you been using them?

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 13-Jun-12 11:54:35

only started this month.

but i have concieved twins before so perhaps i'm pumping out more than one egg again??

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 13-Jun-12 11:56:17

i think ive been getting ewcm over the past week too.
not alot though.

last month, i had alot of ewcm on one day, and sure enough period arrive 14 days after ewcm.
but this month not so much but over a longer period

fanjodisfunction Wed 13-Jun-12 11:57:08

maybe, I guess if this is the first month of using them it will take you time to get use to reading them, thats my experience. You probably did ov over the weekend, maybe read up about cervical mucus aswell so you can pin point it better, but to be honest, sperm lasts along time upto 5 days I think, deffinitly 3 days so you hit it this time.

fanjodisfunction Wed 13-Jun-12 11:58:42

ok, interresting, maybe you did ov twice if you have done before.

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 13-Jun-12 12:04:48

perhaps thats whats happening been ovulating more than one this week.

fanjodisfunction Wed 13-Jun-12 12:06:25

maybe, good luck, hope youve caught it.

I use the opk till its poss then stop so don't know what's normal in length but your surposed to release an egg with 24 hrs after it first detects. Surge, as was mentioned though when ttc my dd I thought I had af although light and only 2 days when infact was implantation bleed then when I started using the opk the following cycle it showed pos straight away on cd13 when usually 17, I was pg and it picked up that, for that long a plus reading I'd be tempted to do a hpt to make sure as it doesn't sound right to me, fingers crossed for you

kittykatsforever Wed 13-Jun-12 12:12:55

Oh and I use cheep opk till I get what I think is a + then use clearblue digital to confirm, that way it's cheeper but you get the clear confirmation from the good brand!

whiteandyelloworchid Wed 13-Jun-12 12:57:23

they wouldnt be aby point in doing a hpt now though would there?
as i ony had sex on the 7th at the earliest.

was thinking of testing around the 20th

fanjodisfunction Wed 13-Jun-12 13:02:48

if I was you I would wait till next week when you are expecting your AF and then take it from there.

kittykatsforever Wed 13-Jun-12 13:06:15

Just wondered if like me you may have been pg from cycle before and miss took it? It wouldn't be + from this cycle for the opt yet either don't think?!? have you had a neg yet or still +? X

pmgkt Wed 13-Jun-12 13:07:02

I had this when trying to concieve ds1 and the reason was I was already pregnant. Ebay cheap ones are fine I used them for dc2 and now 11 weeks. Get a pregnancy test as that tests differently and just check. Or wait til your due on date. Keep us posted.

winkle2 Wed 13-Jun-12 22:59:06

What was your last period like? Was it a proper one? Only ask as you could be preg from your last cycle and the period u had wasn't a proper period?

I too have heard that OV sticks can pick up pregnancy.

Good luck.

whiteandyelloworchid Thu 14-Jun-12 21:16:14

i'm def not pg from last cycle.
had a proper period last time too.

and i think its too early this cycle to think i could be pg yet.

quite a bit of cm today but not egg white anymore, more sticky and slightly cloudy not clear, so think i have ovulated.
forgot to do an ov test today, might do one tonight anyway

pmgkt Thu 14-Jun-12 21:42:00

I had what I thought was a week long period when I was pregnant with ds1. It does happen.

whiteandyelloworchid Thu 14-Jun-12 23:14:39

Just did a ov Test and its still Vcomng up with a strong line

MintChocAddict Thu 14-Jun-12 23:20:48

Agree with pmgkt
I had lots of positive ovualtion sticks while TTC, and was a couple of months pregnant. shock Was also having 'periods' or so I thought.

How long Do ov Sticks normally Show a positive result is it ajout Two days
