Tried to trick of peeing on opk mid 2ww which was positive yesterday but hpt (3 of them) were negative today.

Should I just be sensible and think not my month again. Also, why is it so crap, ho hum.

If your opk is coming positive, then perhaps you haven’t ovulated yet?

Thanks for your reply. I would have thought that usually but my GP tested for ovulation this cycle.

Bit different but with my last baby I did the saliva ovulation test when at due and was positive so I bought a pregnancy test and was bfp. Good luck.

When you say positive.. was the test line as dark as the control line?

It was a fainter line than control. I'm not am I? I don't think the preg test would show a false negative.

If you’re only in the middle of the 2ww, then it might be to early for hpt to show anything.

With regards to the opk, I’ve read some studies that demonstrated that about 10% of women ovulate more than once a month (fraternal twins and all that). Perhaps that’s the case with you?

If it was a fainter line than the control line then it wasn’t a positive OPK. It’s normal for there to be low levels of LH during our cycles.

If the test line was fainter than the control line it wasn't a positive OPK. Sounds normal, you ovulated and you still have LH in your system as we all normally do.

It needs to be as dark as the control line to be positive. Anything else is negative. You usually get two lines at any stage during your cycle. One lighter than the other.

Thanks everyone. I got my ceremonial pre-menstral spot on my face this morning. So there we are.
