OPK What Gives

Ok, so I posted yesterday that last af was Jan 12...etc. Since I got BFN yesterday I decided to get OPK for next month. Because I'm a testaholic I couldn't help myself and did one yesterday around 5pm negative with a faint line. This morning another BFN on HPT...so around 11:30 this morning I go do another O test (boy am I obssessed!) and I get a +++++OPK!! Both lines are equally as dark and thick etc... WTF??? Ok, so has anyone ever had this happen and if so did you end up with a BFP? Does it mean that I will get a BFP? I thought OPK's were less sensitive and would likely not detect pregnancy earlier than HPT if at all! Or does it mean that my cycle is really screwy and that I haven't O'd yet???

they're not less sensitive, they detect the alpha part of the hcg which is in the LH...hpt's detect the beta part.....i got a positive opk at 9dpo and it followed by a bfp that afternoon!!!!!

I just saw a bunch of positive OPK pictures on twoweekwait.com...a few of them did hpt's at the same time and show a comparison of their progression. Looks like the OPK's detected earlier than HPT"s according to those pictures... Anyone else have positive OPK's then get BFP's??

Are you temping? It's possible that you haven't ovulated yet and are only just ovulating now, much later than usual.

I agree with LIN... it's possible that you haven't O'd yet. I got two rounds of positive opks this cycle and it just so happened that I O'd after my last positive opk... which I thought was 11dpo! When I got a positive opk with my last pg, it came a full 8 days after my first positive hpt. I'd definitely try testing again though. GL!

I'm not temping regularly enough to chart so there's no real way of knowing if O is happening now. AF is due Friday, at this point, if it doesn't show, I'll try another HPT. But just in case, might bd again tonight!
