Looking for opinions as I'm really confused right now. I ovulated on the 26th so I was due for AF yesterday. Felt like it was going to arrive all day as I kept having the type of cramps I always get right before I start to bleed, was checking for blood pretty much all day and absolutely nothing.
I've been having lots of milky white discharge for the last 5 days, which I only ever had when I was pregnant before so I saw it as a good sign. Really tired, tender breasts, needing to wee all the time and having normal AF type cramps. I've also been feeling mildly nauseous on and off for the past three days which is really really unusual for me.
I tested with FRER the day before AF and only the very edges of the line were pink so assumed it was negative. Tested yesterday with a Tesco PG and immediately got a very very faint line, tested negative with an IC on the same day. Then this morning tested again with a Tesco PG and got the same faint line only slightly darker. I know the Tesco's ones can give false positives so really don't want to get my hopes up but not sure what to think at this point? Any thoughts would be appreciated x

@CheeseSammich The only way to get an answer is to test, If you don't trust the tesco tests I'd go buy some tests you trust and test again. I would expect on the day AF was due it'd be picked up on most tests if ovulation date is definitely correct but people can have different amounts of hcg. 🤞

Yeah I'm thinking about leaving it a while and picking up an frer. I think I might have implanted quite late so I'm not actually expecting an obvious line even though I am late for AF. I'm definitely feeling different this month so fingers crossed 🤞🏻 xx

I've also done a CB ovulation test today and the line was darker than the control line so not sure if this could indicate I'm pregnant?

OP if you're getting multiple positives it sounds like you're pregnant - hope that's good news!

@CheeseSammich if you're sure of your ovulation date and you're getting a faint line on a less sensitive test it will definitely show on a FRER 👌🏾 if you are doing the CB digital opks that show flashy smily and static smily the lines don't just show the LH surge so probably not the best for detecting pregnancy. I got a BFP last week on a FRER and a cheapie opk showed a clear peak so maybe try one of those if you have one but not a FRER x

Ah okay so the CB digi opks don't detect PG hormone? It's strange then that it's such a strong line. I tested negative with IC other day and might test again tonight but not sure. The Tesco pregnancy tests were both faint positives but I've heard so many people say they're not accurate. Only used them as DP had picked them up. Congrats on your BFP!! Xx

No ovulation prediction kits show LH so you know where you are ovulating. The CB digital opks with flashys and static, detect oestrogen and LH so there is no test and control line on them and definitely don't detect hcg, although the opks can confuse hcg for lh and therefore some people get a static smile when they are pregnant, was yours a static 🙂

I didn't put it in the holder I just used it without but I'm guessing it would have been a static. This is the test

Why do you think it would be static have you looked at the lines before so you could compare?

For reference I've attached what mine looked like this month when low (a bit like yours I think) and what it looked like when peak x
