Opk-updated with HPT

Here are today's (3/7) dollar store OPK, clearblue OPK, and dollar store HPT:

The HPT looks pretty negative to me!

So I bought the new clearblue advanced ovulation tests. It is supposed to show you the 4 most likely days to get pregnant. If you get a flashing smiley face you have high fertility that day and if you get a regular smiley face its peak fertility (ovulation). Well I have been taking them and the last 6 days I have gotten:

All flashing smiley faces! Anyone try these yet? I wonder when I'm going to get my peak fertility.

So today I got another flashing smiley face. I have been looking at the sticks to look at how dark the lines are and today is my darkest line.

I don't know what to do now!

2 of the sticks from the OPK from the past 2 days:

You said you have PCOS right? I am curious if maybe that is messing with the tests? I haven't ever used that brand but it seems like six days of positives is a lot?

I have not been diagnosed with PCOS.

Interesting. I usually go by EWCM or a $tree cheapie. That does seem like a lot of days to get a flashing smiley...if that were true you should be O-ing, like, now. Are you testing twice a day?

No just once a day that's what the instructions say to do. I have noticed that the lines on the stripes are getting darker tho.

I don't know how those specific tests work but I know other OPKs can double as pregnancy tests. Is it possible that you are preggo?

Mandy- it could be possible that I could be prego but I just don't know. I wish I could email clearblue and ask them. I got another flashing smiley face today. I know I probably won't be buying this kind anymore tho,

Sorry, I get people mixed up and I think I have heard about PCOS throwing out positives on OPKs (but again could be really wrong), but since you don't have PCOS never mind on that front....
I used the Wondfos from Amazon, and it was easier to tell what was positive and what wasn't. I know that the pregnancy digitals always have two lines but I don't know about the OPKs.

It's ok! I'm just wondering what is going on! I suppose it will work itself out eventually!

Go take a HPT. There's no way those should still be positive. Smile

I'm on CD 18. You don't think it's too early?

CD 18 *does* sound a bit early for a pos HPT....but 6 days of positive OPKs is kind of weird too. Do you have any cheapie ICs arouns that you could try just to be sure?

Nope I don't. I guess we will just see what happens in the next few days.

I have always heard not to take digis apart and look at their lines because their lines aren't meant to be read that way. I'd toss the CBE and buy some $tree tests and test twice a day from now on.

Your 2 OPKs and HPT all look like BFNs to me. Try again with the OPKs next cycle and test twice a day so you don't miss your surge. Do you pay attention to your CM as well?

I'm a little late to this thread but I just wanted to say that I used those same clearblue OPK tests when we were going through infertility treatments to get my son. I am a late ovulator and sometimes I would get quite a few high fertility days before I would finally get my peak. I also did them for so long that I was able to tell what that day's reading would be (low, high or peak) by just looking at the lines. ha!

GL! I hope you caught the eggie!! Wink
