Has anyone ever used an OPK to test for pregnancy?

I don't have any hpts in the house, but I was dying to pee on something, so I peed on an OPK. I am not sure what to make of it, and now I think I've just confused myself completely Smile

It would be positive straight off really... But saying that sometimes I test when af is due and it can be almost +

Get a test!!!!

(hi holly fab to see you!!!...good luck!!!)

If the test line is as dark/darker than the control line, it's positive. I tend to have "almost positive" opks in the tww. Do you have a picture for our obsessing pleasure? Wink

I do have a pic of both the OPK and the HPT. I really think my eyes are playing tricks on me with the hpt....I swear I see the faintest line, but I cannot figure out how to invert the darn thing on photobucket. Can anyone help me out?? I just looked at the darn thing again and I swear, it's just the beginning of something. I don't know. I really doubt our chances are all that great this month, but I can't help but be a wishful thinker Smile

I know in the past others have taken pictures that are posted and inverted them because we're all crazy like that... Wink

I'm trying to upload a picture...

I'm not sure I see anything today....must have been my eyes. AF still isn't here though, and if she's coming I wish she'd hurry up and get here.

I think I see it too! FX for you Holly!

I did use some OPKs when I was testing early with this one. I have a comparison pic here:

As for inverting the picture in photobucket I think going into advanced from express editor and playing with the image options there is what got it to work for me.

Hoping this is it for you!

I still can't figure it out...maybe someone will help me out and do it Smile Otherwise, I'm just going to wait it out a few more days and test again. The waiting is agonizing!

Here you go... I inverted for you. And if you want me to remove this... just say the word. I don't mean to offend.

Thanks! I was hoping someone would do it for me. AF is still MIA, so I don't know what to think Sad

Funny you should ask....I have been trying it out, since I have tons of OPK sticks and only one HPT. This will help explain using OPKs as HPTs....

Basically, it's positive when it's darker than the control line. However, you need to be absolutely sure you're in the 2ww, or you could be mistaking ovulation for pg.

Based on the inverted pic above, I think you are pg but not sure....I say, test again!!!! Good luck!
