    difference between hpt and opk??

    I have 1 test stick sitting in my cupboard and have no idea what it is. i don't want to use it as a hpt if it is an opk and get a false result.
    is there a way to tell the difference or am i just going to have to buy more?? i have been getting a few "symptom" and am a bit curious without getting my hopes up.
    help!!!

    From what I've heard; Opks test positive in early pregnancy so I'd say use the test; whether it's a hpt or an opk; if it tests positive at this point in your cycle; there's a pretty good chance you're pregnant. You can always buy another test to confirm.
    Good luck!

    Pretty sure if its blue its HPT, the green ones are OPKs. Love how I know that off the top of my head.......

    What does the blue writing say? If it says hcg that would make it a hpt; if it says LH it would be an opk. If it says something else then I've got no idea!

    Joeve, my green ones are hpts and my opks are pink. I guess that means it varies by brand...

    It will often say on the black type on the outside of the package too.

    As juniper said - Mine always had LH on the stick if they were opks and hcg if they were preg tests.

    Part of the batch number may also be the ARTG number (does it have Aust at the start?) if so google ARTG and then put the number following the AUST into the search box and it will tell you what you have.

    google pee sticks or perhaps countdown to pregnancy there are lots of gallery pics of both and you might be able to identify what you have? I have been playing in that land a bit the last few days checking out pee sticks....
