Hi, i got my first positive opk (stronger than control) on friday, saturday was lighter, sun def negative and today its up to equal colour to control. First time using these so have no idea what to think? Any experience? Thanks.

Actually after studying it a bit longer im not sure it is a positive.... from top to bottom fri, sat, sun, mon

I don't think the bottom one is anywhere near equal colour - it should be the whole line - like your true positive. I would like you ovulated 24-48 hours after your top test and should stop testing now. Do you temp so should have seen your thermal shift already.

Once you've your positive it starts to fade out so what you've seen there is exactly what should happen after ovulation. Have you got a nice easy app to try out to tell you when to expect AF or a testing date? I would recommend Fertility Friend, it is great. Then you can temp with a digital thermometer at the same time every morning before you speak/get up showing 2 decimal places and can track it on your app and enter your opk results too and it will show you when you ovulated. If you are not on a TTC bus yet I would also recommend joining one so we can all stare at eachothers piss sticks and decifer when we all ovualted then obsess over our symptoms together in the tww. I am on the Bumsnet bus - best one around wink

Ive just a normal cycle app. Today is cd15 and cycles range from 28 to 32, ill not be able to hold off testing that long! Ive just been lurking so far to help me feel sane in my symptom spotting. Really i shouldnt be holding out much hope for this month as only managed to dtd on sat morning due to 4yr old jumping in with us every night. Thanks for the advice. Will pop over to bumsnet for a noseysmile
