How does an OPK have a "faint" positive?

Usually opk's are only positive when the test line is as dark or darker than the control line. There isn't really a 'faint positive'.

What you would consider a faint positive by pregnancy test standards is actually a negative on an OPK. It's positive when the test line is as dark or darker than the control line.



Make sure you take them every day at the exact same time to get the most accurate results. Prime time for OPKs is around 2pm I believe.

It's negative then. Read the instructions the opk came with.
