    Hello ??? about OPK

    I was wondering if anyone could tell me about OPK's? When do they start having a line? How long after the darkest line will one O? Will there still be a line on there a day after O? I am sorry that I am so uninformed...

    Okay OPKs - I can't really use them because I got too feint of lines.
    You should start to see a feint line in the Test section about 4-5 days BEFORE Ovulation.
    But, when both lines are dark as one another then you should expect to ovulate later that day or the next day.
    There could still be traces of the chemical (don't know what its called) in your urine after "o" so you could still get a line..but it should be a lot feinter.

    Hope this helps...

    Well I think that I O'ed yesterday and I took an OPK today and nothing. The control line was really faint as well. Maybe it was a bad test. It was one from the dollar tree. Thank you.

    once you get the positive result it is within 24-36 hours following that. If the control line was faint then it may have been a dodgy test good luck hope that you caught the wee eggie...
