Only the OPK on the left is positive. You need to have the test line at least as dark or darker than the control line for it to be positive. Then you can expect to ovulate within 12-36 hours of a positive test.

Thats which one i thought just wondering why my apps saying i should of ovlation monday

MrsG280516 Wed 14-Dec-16 13:52:17

Apps are never 100% correct unfortunately as they can only predict from either previous cycles or from averages. You can ovulate at almost any point in your cycle, even if you have always ovulated on a certain day then it can be different the following cycle.

If that's Sunday's test (the positive one) then you probably ovulated Monday or the

Ovlation test was darker still today

Looks like your body is gearing up then but you haven't ovulated yet. Of course you might not, as OPKS are not a confirmation just a signal you might. What cycle TTC is this for you and what CD is today?

rebeccac29 Fri 16-Dec-16 00:24:42

Cd is 26 this is 5month of trying

Ah, could be that you picked up your body trying to start AF. OPK can sometimes predict a period (or positive pregnancy) let us know if you get either!! X

rebeccac29 Fri 16-Dec-16 11:33:33

Oh i have no idea still 11 days till AF is due

If you're able to shell out a bit I'd definitely get the Clearblue digital ones. I started using these when trying to conceive first time and ended up just switching to digital. Conceived first month. Pregnant now with #2 and same again, conceived first month! Much easier to know when you're ovulating. Smiley face means do it!

MouseLove Fri 16-Dec-16 16:07:32

You could get AF early. I had a 23 day cycle last cycle. It's possible. X

Lozalooloo3 Fri 16-Dec-16 16:15:32

I have the digital test.
It's my first month TTC. I've had the flashy smile face for 3 days now, but no solid one to show peak fertility.
Should I get a solid face soon? Or is it possible to never get one ?
I have an ovulation app on my phone and according to that I should have ovulated by now! So confused!
Thanks all x

Sorry to jump in on your thread rebecca
I had a faint line on my OPK last night and it was a little darker today.. (I will add picture from today ) does that mean I should ovulate soon? Thanks X

Heatherbell1978 Fri 16-Dec-16 17:14:05

Loza it should turn to solid soon but flashing still means you're potentially able to conceive so I'd do it now and keep at it until you get solid and carry on until gone!

Lozalooloo3 Fri 16-Dec-16 17:19:38

Thanks Heather,
We have DTD for last 3 days, while I've had the flashing smile face, I'll test again tomorrow and hopefully catch my surge.
I'm tempted to start temping to confirm I'm actually ovulating due to my endometriosis being a worry, but as it's only second cycle TTC it seems a little early to worry too much!
I never thought I would become this obsessed so fast! X

Lozalooloo3 Fri 16-Dec-16 20:07:46

This is the actual stick reading on my CB ovulation test. This showed a flash smile face. Is it when the second line is dark that it's the surge?
Help appreciated smile

CatsCantFlyFast Fri 16-Dec-16 20:17:04

Are you saying you have 36 day cycles? You said you were on cd26 and af isn't due for 11 days ?

rebeccac29 Fri 16-Dec-16 20:21:47

I mean 35 days cycles

Lozalooloo3 Fri 16-Dec-16 20:22:10

Not sure if you are asking me:
My cycle tend to be between 28/30 days.
I'm on CD14 now. OPK shown flash smile for last 3 days, just no solid smile to show peak fertility. X
