OPK confusion - Help!

Hi everyone!

I apologise if these are very stupid questions but I’m very new to this journey and could use some advice!

So I have (mild) PCOS apparently, I do generally have a period every month although actual cycle length can vary from 21 days to 33 days 🤷🏻‍♀️ My GP says because I’m bleeding every month I must be ovulating even though my testosterone is slightly elevated which indicates PCOS - I’m not convinced so we decided to start using OPK’s to try and get a gist of what’s going on. So I used one yesterday which would be CD10 and there was a fairly dark line although not as dark as the control line so negative. Both tests I’ve taken today on CD11 AM and PM have barely any line at all. Is this normal? Should a line be getting progressively darker until ovulation?

Sorry if these are stupid questions- I’m very confused 😂

I’ve attached pics of the tests in case they make more sense than my ramblings!

Nope, not always! They don't always get progressively darker and sometimes they get darker and then faint again. Often I'd have a super faint line then blazing positive the next day when I'm ovulating.

Yeah you'll have some lh in your system most of the month so it's quite common to get some darkish lines but your tests aren't any where near positive so you've just measured a slight increase in lh which is normal for some women. Keep testing, maybe try testing twice a day and you'll know when they're getting darker and your measuring your peak smile good luck xx
