OPK progression

Ok, I know I'm being annoying with ANOTHER post today about this.
I'm sorry... Just can't figure these stupid things out!!

Here's the progression of three pics from when I started the opk's.

If I was reading someone else's I would say that I missed the tip of the surge, but caught it right after and it's been going down ever since. But that seems really early with Clomid! And my temps seem to tell me nothing. Except maybe having an up today? But they are all over the place with the provera and then the clomid.

Help??

I'm not very good with opk's either. I find them very frustrating too! I would continue testing to see what you get over the next few days. It's my understanding that you should ovulate about 5 days or so after your last Clomid dose.

The first one looks almost positive, but the problem I have with that one is that the control line is so light. Like, maybe the test line wouldn't be about as dark as the control line, if the control line weren't abnormally light. LOL Sorry, I know that's extremely helpful. LOL I agree with you that it seems a bit early to have already had the surge, especially combined with the wonky control line in that one. I would say just BD as much as possible and keep testing (your DH is good with that, right? :lol:)

Haha! yep. I think he'll manage. lol We are, just in case. Going to jump him every other day until the end of the month to be safe lol

I didn't think of it that way (that the test could be iffy)... I wonder if it's just a lousy pic, bcs it didn't look too light in person.

ACK! Who knows. I'm buying the digi's again next month, that's for sure!!!!!!

I've heard that clomid can sometimes affect the OPKs if you take them too close to when you stopped the clomid. My gut is you didn't O yet and those tests weren't quite positive. I could be wrong though lol no expert. I had that happen though my two clomid cycles where my tests would be darkish them got lighter then got darker again til they were positive. I took clomid 3-7 both months and Od 15 and then 17. I would have missed my chance the lucky last cycle I think bc I almost stopped too soon thinking I Od on 15 the 2nd cycle but really it was the 17th.

That looks just like this Tiffany... They are really light in the AM, then darker in the PM every day. I had never seen that! The one from last night was definitely the darkest of all.

Here's the new ones added on:
