OPK help please?

OK so I am on CD 26, temps have not shown an O or anything, although they did go up today, which is aggravating because I know based on temps I did O last cycle and it was normal length. I took an OPK and got a dark line, but not super dark like the OPK I had when I got pregnant and had this recent miscarriage. I figured it meant I was going to O soon. Well today the OPK was almost completely negative, like I had just O'd. Here is my chart so you can see my temps - http://www.fertilityfriend.com/home/22be69. It was negative on CD 24, but that test got messed up so I only have pics of the test from CD 23, 25, and today, CD 26. So here is the first pic of the darker line:

And here is the next one with the test from today.

What do you think? Was it positive?

HI Amy- I'm not sure that any of those would be positives BUT when I tested with non-digitals I never got a true + and always had a temp shift to indicate O. Hopefully you won't need to, but if you don't get pg this cycle, I recommend switching to digital OPKs. I always get a + on those and it is much less stressful for me.

Good luck and baby dust!

Thanks! I'm not TTC this cycle, we're waiting until November, but I wanted to get back to tracking my cycles and after the store had an error and double charged my card they let me go get whatever I wanted so I figured I would get OPKs because my temps did not indicate ovulation had happened yet. I really feel like AF is coming so it's frustrating for me to think I didn't ovulate so close to when we want to TTC. I think when we do TTC we might do one of the fertility monitors and just do smiley face or not, no more line scrutinizing lol.

Hi Amy,

None of those are positive--remember that unlike with a HPT, on an OPK the test line needs to be DARKER than the control, which it definitely wasn't on any of those tests.

However, I noticed you didn't test on CD 24--it's possible you would have gotten a positive that day. On the other hand it's possible that you didn't really O this cycle--maybe it was a anovulatory cycle or you still have yet to O.

OPK's don't work for everyone--you'll have to compare them against your temp rises over the next couple months to see if they will work for you.

KUP!

I did test CD 24 and it was negative but the test dried funny so you couldn't read it anymore so I threw it away. I didn't think any were positive either because I have had positives on OPKs. Temp is up again today so hoping I did O cd 25 and that I just didn't wait long enough to take the test.

So apparently I did ovulate on CD 25 and the OPKs were just taken at a bad time, but it was positive. FF gave me crosshairs on my chart today:
