Hi all,
So I bought some opk tests and they were on the door mat when I got home. I have really random cycles so thought I would merrily wee on the stick as it were and see what happened.

As this is all new to us we are fumbling through the instruction leaflet as I type.... husband convinced this is a negative and thinks he can have the night off.... I'm convinced something is happening either about to happen or has just happened and I think we should go at it...

Opinions please ladies do I settle in for a night in front of the TV or hop into bed?

That's a negative. BUT. keep testing over the next few days. Remember to hold wee for a few hours and test between 10am-8pm. What CD is today?

Forgot to say. Sex every other day of your cycle and then every day when you get a positive is the best approach. Gives you more of a chance!

Oh brewcake in front of the tv it is then!
Even though there is a line there? Does it have to be as strong as the test line then?! hmm
Sorry to be so dumb CD? (This is all new to meblush) x

Funny you should say they, that's the approach we were going with but we bought the sticks partly because we didn't have any idea when I was ovulating because my AF has been so random but also because we were struggling with keeping pace with every second day blush

The line needs to be as darker or darker than the test line. There will always be a second line. Good luck x

Ahhh well, at least the husband gets the night off!

This is mine been getting slightly darker since I came off. Unsure of cycles as had my first one in 8 years after ectopic x

Should add I had the implant then got pregnant straight away ended up ectopic. Sounded like I'd had my first one after ectopic 8 years ago lol x

I actually use FMU, if I tested at 10am this cycle I'd have missed my surge.

Positives are as dark or darker than the control usually smile

It's not recommended to use FMU with cheapie OPK. Only the clear blue.

Keep testing and bonking!! 🤘

I know it's not recommended, but after some reading around there are plenty of others who would have also missed their surge had they not.
