Opk's can be used as hpt's. Opk's are traditionally used to detect the LH hormone, however, they will also pick up HCG (pregnancy hormone) if it is concentrated enough. For an opk to be considered positive for pregnancy, the test line must be as dark or darker that the control line (at least that is the norm). When your girlfriend uses a hpt, it should only be used with first morning urine, and the dip method is the best way to go. She just needs to pee in a dixie cup and dip the test, this ensures the proper saturation of the test. Opk's should not be used with forst morning urine***unless she is using one to test for pregnancy***. The best pregnancy test to use is First Response Early Results. Does any of this help?
