Okay so I was testing for pregnancy and I tested 2 days ago and bfn so ill test next week. But if I'm not pregnant I want to know when I'm ovulating so I'm also using opk everyday. But idk how to read them :/
My lines all look the same everyday. I take 2 a day started 4 days ago so can you tell me if its getting darker or not?

are you waiting at least 2 hours after peeing and without drinking fluids in that 2 hours when you take one? Concentration of your urine can have a significant effect on your results. Also time of day you should be taking them in the afternoon between about 2 and 6 pm.

You you're getting these for like 4 days in a row? I know some women have a long surge but it's usually from beginning to end 3 at the most and not all day. Could it be possible you have PCOS? I know they say with women who have PCOS they have a longer LH surge or have a higher level of LH in their system.

Yes its a possibility ! Cause I have irregular periods ! I always think I have pcos cause I have the symptom. I'm going to keep testing but i think its weird that there always all positive. I ovulated on November 2-3 for sure after that my ovulation tests were negative. So Idk what's going on buy if I keep getting positive from now on Idk what to do or think :/ I thought i was pregnant but I haven't had a dark bfp :/

your bfp doesn't have to be dark to be real, I would think that's a very likely cause as well, especially since none of those tests looks positive just very nearly positive like you should be getting a positive the very next day except you don't.

So basically your saying I most likely have pcos? Or that I'm about to ovulate? Sorry I'm still half asleep as I write this lol

I would say if you were preggo you'd have a bfp by now especially with the positive opks. I'd talk to your doctor about doing the test for PCOS. With this and your periods being irregular then it's a good possiblity that you may have it. One doc said I had it just because I was overweight and had some facial hair but 2 other docs said no. My periods are like clockwork and I never get prolonged positive opks. I just tested again to make sure lol. But I would get that checked out especially if you are ttc. It doesn't hurt to find out if you do that way they can put you on meds if you need it to regulate your cycles and help you out.

I would suspect you're pregnant.

Yeah I'm on the search for a new Dr and can't seem to finds new one. My Dr is reallly rude to me :( she always trys to put me on birth control. And complains that I'm to young to ttc. But thanks I really do need to get checked because I'm positive I have it.

have you tried using the other fertility markers other than opk? I don't have PCOS or any trouble getting pregnant for that matter but I'm currently using all those methods in an effort to not get pregnant since pretty much every form of BC is a challenge for me. Maybe try doing cervical checks for texture, length, opening and temp charting. I started using a fertility friend app on my phone that I really like, it's really helpful.

I can tell you that both of those while dark, are actually negative still. They are looking like you'd be ovulating within 12 to 24 hours. It's crazy but like you said since you are irregular it's hard to pinpoint anything. But if you're getting these dark lines on opks then I think you'd be getting rather dark lines on an hpt as well if you were pregnant. I hope you get some answers soon because i know how frustrating it is.
