Weird OPK Results?

Someone please give me some advice, ladies!
To give you a little background info: this is my 3rd month off the NuvaRing. The 1st month (July) I had some spotting throughout the month, but DID get a normal period. So, I should've gotten my next period on August 27th- but instead, I began having brown spotting from the 20th-26th. Then, when I was SUPPOSED to have my period on the 27th, nothing happened, and I have not had any more spotting at all since then. I just thought maybe that was my period for the month of August? But someone told me that spotting does not count as a normal period. So, I have NO idea when to expect my period this month. Well, when I was in WalMart I saw an OPK and decided to give it a try to see if my body was even trying to begin ovulating again (I don't know if I have ovulated since being off BC). So I took a test on September 5th, 6th, and 7th and they were negative. Then, on the 8th and 9th they were positive. (And since OPK's say you will most likely ovulate within 12-36 hours AFTER a positive, we BD'd on the 10th). Well, on the 10th I also took another test just to make sure the LH surge had gone down, which I guess it had cuz the test was negative. The next day I didn't use the last test cuz I already "knew" it would be negative still (since I apparently already had my surge, and probably already ovulated). Well, then on the 12th I was bored and decided just to go ahead and use the last test for fun...and it was positive (the test line was even DARKER than the control line this time! and yes I know a test isn't positive unless it's as dark as, or darker than control line but all my positives were just as dark as the control line) What the heck? Has anyone else had this happen? I don't know why it would do this. I also don't know when to try a HPT!

Several thoughts:


First, you could already be pregnant and you either had implantation bleeding or a light period.

Thanks for the response :)
I tried an HPT yesterday morning and it was negative. So, I guess I was not pregnant from last month...but there's always hope for this month! I am planning to test tomorrow (which I THINK is 8DPO) and then every other day because I,too, am a POAS-aholic!

I tested this morning, and I got a BFN. So...I am going to wait until Thursday (which should be 10DPO) to test again. The waiting is driving me nuts!
