I have an irregular 21 day cycle. I started these ovulation strip on day 1 of AF. I notice a surge in the third and fourth day (still AF hanging about) and today the fifth is clear (af away).

Ovulation or not? Thanks x

Not. The test line needs to be at least as dark as the control line. Those are nowhere near.

That's a very very short cycle!! If you ov in each one, I'd guess cd6-12...

I don’t think so, OP. I’ve attached my positive one for you to see what it looks like - the test line is darker than the control line.

I find at the beginning of your cycle opks can darken then they lighten and go dark again when you ovulate. Think it’s normal for ic. Mine do the same smile have yet to get a pos but only cd11 at mo

Thanks girls.
I am not feeling so confident, with this short cycle. It's only happened the last year. I had no problems first time ttc 4 yrs ago.

Gem173 been trying to inbox you! As we are around the same time it seems. Today is day 13 and below you can see I got positive test last night and tonight so day 12 and 13. Last month had positive for 3/4 days so hard to know exactly when ovulation occurs!!

I haven’t received anything from you, I don’t even know how you inbox on this website haha but if you tag or write to me, put an ‘@‘ in front of my username as it will notify me when you have written something to me smile I’m glad you got your positive opk! Goodluck dtd, I’ve yet to get mine but have started temping so should know exactly when I ovulate (with the help of opks). So far done the deed every other day and new bed is due tomorrow so should be fun! Let me know how it goes x

@Gem173 at bottom on my phone says inbox! Ooo new bed sounds fun!!! Enjoy.

I don’t really need opk as I can tell
I am ovulating by amount of cm (tmi) but really getting wet pants!! But maybe I am ovulating Earlier than day 15 like my apps suggest as positive day 12 / 13.

Haha we will I’m sure! I’ve been havin a ‘wet’ feeling but I think it’s too early as only cd 11. And my opks aren’t showing any signs of darkening :/

@gem173 anyway we can msg each other privately? As don’t want to keep taking over others threads

Updated pic -
I am now on cycle day 9. I have been testing twice a day sinc day 2 of 21 day cycle.
Any opinions?

Hard to say. I find they fade as the dry... might be a positive in there that had faded? Maybe the bottom one? Somewhere in the middle?
