OPK Help

erin - September 15

I have NEVER gotten a positive opk. And by never I mean I haven't ever gotten a teeny tiny faint line at all... the control line is always there, but the test line is ALWAYS completely blank! I know I'm ovulating based on temps and cervical mucus (and the fact that I've gotten pregnant twice). I read about a woman who had her surge in the morning (positive opk at 7am) and when she tested that afternoon at 6pm it was completely white. Is it possible that I could be missing my surge? According to my ovulation pain, cervical fluid and temp shift, I ovulated yesterday. But when I took the test at 6pm, it was blank. Could my surge have happened earlier? Could I just be someone who can't get anything on an opk? TIA for your help!!!

I had that same problem with missing my surge. So what I have done is take my OPK test at 4:00 pm and 10:00pm or before bed. I don't drink anything for more than 4 hours because it takes that long for the LH to build up in your urine. Also, by the time the OPK picks up a + surge where the test line is darker than the control, your surge was actually 4-6 hours earlier. I hope that this helps.

Thanks. It seems that I o'd on cd 4 (unless what I thought was my period actually wasn't), so I didn't test before. I'll be using opk's next month since we'll be charting to tta, so hopefully I'll get better luck when I use them then. Thanks again.
