Hi my dp and I are in our first month ttc and I've been tying to track my ovulation last month. Ive been using ovulation sticks but last month they showed nothing up. I probably didn't test enough.

On Monday I had my first line, a very faint one but I assumed it would get darker until I had a positive result, but yesterday and today I'm back to no line at all. I've used one step and clear blue and they both come out the same. Any ideas?

Sorry, no answers re OPK as I have had success with them. I use the Clearblue fertility monitor.

Are you temping? That will tell you whether you are ovulating or not as your temp rises after ovulation until AF arrives, or stays elevated if you get a BFP. Might be worth trying if OPKs are proving tricky.

Is there a certain time of day you should test?

These are my tests from this afternoon and tonight. There's defo a line back now? Or am I going mad?

Apologies this is the right picture

They have to be equally as dark as control line to be positive. I'm afraid a faint line doesn't mean very much - there is always LH in the system, and it's only when it surges that it's a sigh of ovulation. Sorry OP. If it's any consolation I'm in the same boat and can't seem to get a positive.
