So I have not been temping only opk. At cd 16 I got a clear as day positive followed by egg white cm a few hours later. The next day or two neg opk. So that would put me at 4 dpo today and I had about five opk left and just wanted to use them as htp for fun cuz I know I'm way early but I love to poas! So it came out super positive way darker than control just like cd 16. I don't have egg white cm at this point but what does this mean....could it be I'm registering pg...or am I going to o for the second time. I have had pain on and off all week and i get that every month when I o....and it has been bout the same as always....I am so confused!

I'm one of the famous ones that used an OPK as an HPT. OPKs are not as sensitive to hcg as an HPT so at only 4dpo, it's definitely not reading a pregnancy...unless you got pregnant last month and didn't realize it. There are random cycles where a woman could ovulate twice. They are rare but they do happen. Another possibility is that your body geared up to ovulate the first go round and for whatever reason, the egg did not release. This happens quite a bit. Sometimes illness, stress, travel, diet, etc can cause this to happen. Your body won't stop trying to release that egg so it'll eventually release. So, with that said, maybe it's finally releasing the egg and producing a surge. And the last thought is that it could be a faulty test or the test before that was faulty. Either way, it's a confusing month for you I am sure. I guess if it was me, I'd go with my first opk and kinda sit back and wait to see as AF approaches. If AF arrives on time or you get a positive HPT at 12dpo or so, than you're in luck. :) If AF doesn't arrive on time and you don't get that positive HPT at 12dpo or so, I'd say you might have ovulated a little lighter than you thought. Wish I could help. Good Luck!

Yeah that is what I was thinking. Thank you for your reply. Luckly we have been bd regularly so if I did o late I think we have just a good of a chance. Maybe tmrw morn i will take a pg test because I had my iud taken out about a month and a half ago just to make sure. I can't believe I have not done a hpt seeing what a poas addict I am!
