Is this considered positive or is it suppose to be the same as the control line?
Thanks!

No pic
But if an OPK
Test line should be as dark as control line or darker.



If an HPT then it depends. Because I hate blue dyes and don't consider light lines a positive on them lol So ya I'd need a pic to know .

How about now? I'm sorry. I've never posted a pic that is on my desktop, the pics are usually from fb.

It's an opk. It's slightly lighter than the control line. Does that mean I should test again until it gets darker?

You'll need to upload it to a host like imgur.

Yes.
And FMU isn't accurate for OPKs. Try again around 2pm :) The LH actually builds throughout the day and so you'll get the best results in the afternoon.
Good luck!

Thank you! I bought the target brand opk and just followed the instructions and took it this morning. I will try again this afternoon. (=

You bet! I'm honestly not sure why they do that for directions. Unless they assume people drink like fish. But even then. IDK. Dumb LOL

I'm like you! Conquering it no matter what haha.
Definitely test in the afternoons. What CD are you on? Some people test twice a day in their fertile week to catch it like 12-2pm and 6-8pm.
I usually just did once around 2pm but it's what works for you. If you find once a day you don't see a positive try twice a day in case you have a short surge and end up missing it.



Oh also remember there can be any variation of line at any time in your cycle. The LH is always present in some amounts. But it's that positive you look for which shows the surge. Good luck :)
