Drinking water and OPK testing Roxanne.♥ Due January 21; 1 child; California 1249 posts

I just tried to test about a half hour ago and there was absolutely NO TEST LINE at all not even faint. The past few days I've had a faint/light test line. We've been cleaning house like crazy and re arranging rooms so I've been drinking many glasses of water. Is that the reason it didn't pop up? When should I try again? Thanks!

try again tomorrow, it will come up. your LH does not build up, you can have an almost positive one day and the next a line very hard to see, that is normal. when its positive you will test positive, i tested in the summertime and was drinking tons of water, it worked for me.

Actually, water can effect it. They recommend that you take an opk on a 3-4 hour hold and try not to drink too much in that time. What cycle day are you on mama??

Which CD did you start taking opks?? I usually start around CD 9 or 10 because I know my cycle pretty well but this last one I took one on CD thinking that I was going to be seeing progression and instead I got a bam in your face + and from their they got lighter. It's also possible to not ovulate for a cycle. You could just be Oing later then you thought and having a short LP or you could O really early. FX you get a + soon though. :)

I started testing on CD 9 and there was a line on that day! And a few days after but today I tested and there was nothing at all. So I didn't know if it was because I drank too much water or not. I'm suppose to ovulate by Monday which is cd 15
