Thread: Who had only faint opks but got a bfp?

    Default Who had only faint opks but got a bfp?

    Hi!

    Just wondering how many have had faint opks (Lines not as dark as the control line) but ended up with a bfp anyway?

    I have just started using opks and had faint lines from CD15 to 18, but none today on CD19.

    Any help or advice most welcome!

    I never ever got a true positive (or anything close to a positive) using OPK's and I used them for three cycles. I even tried different brands as well just in case. I got a BFP on the third cycle of using OPK's so it most certainly does happen.

    Good luck with the OPK's and getting your BFP!!!

    Me too - I never got a true positive OPK until I did one by mistake when I was pregnant - then it was a dark one.

    Good luck - if you are getting any sort of second line I would be BDing just in case.

    Hi Ella's Mum,

    Its possible to not receive a true positive result and still fall pregnant. Some times this can happen if:

    A) you are not testing at the same time each day.
    B) heavy intake of fluid can dilute the contentration of Lh in your urine
    C) A short surge lasting less than 24 hours has occured - testing twice a day is recommended if this has happened (try 2pm & again at 8pm).

    Lastly, If the above fails then whilst the text books say that Lh peaks in the morning and takes 4 hours to disburse through the urine.....(unfortunately not everyone is a textbook case).....

    D) Some women may need to test using first morning urine, in the even that the surge occured late evening.

    I hope that helps.

    Hi Ella's mum,
    Not only did I never get a +ve OPK, but I barely even got a second line including the cycle I fell pregnant. I followed the instructions very carefully, sometimes testing several times a day, but did not seem to find these tests useful for me. The only way I could ever actually identify if/when I ovualted was by getting my blood checked to see if I had ovulated.
    Good luck - your faint lines sound promising.

    Thanks Ladies!

    Jac, makes me wonder if I should bother using them iykwim?

    Do you have your blood checked (For 'O') through a FS or GP?

    I'm having trouble getting any two lines ever. i've been using the ovutel ones this cycle and have tried the lullaby ones and fortel ultra. My problem is i drink too much and wee too often. Who can slow down the drinking in that damn heat wave we had. GGRR Impossible. i'm actually wondering if maybe its because i dont ovulate. Will know tomorrow after i see the fs as i had progesterone levels done. Looking foward to some answers.Until then i'll keep peeing in a cup.lol

    Good luck for tomorrow pollyanna!

    I don't really think I 'O' very often as I have pco's and it's taking some time (Again) to get a bfp.

    Girls, these postings have helped me too... I've been worried that I haven't seen a darker line yet and thought i would have O'd today or tomorrow (CD13). I've had a positive OPK before using the same brand, but i've only used OPKs twice before - that cycle and this current cycle. The second line is remaining very faint and not getting progressively darker.

    I think I'll just continue to check CM /temps and BD for the next 3 days or so anyway and hopefully catch the eggie... assuming I'm going to O this month.!!

    I've just bought a new pack of OPKs so I think i'll do an 8pm check too.

    ellas mum: thats the only reason I knew I ovulated, as I got a day 21 progesterone blood test done which proved I did in fact ovulate when I was so sure I didnt

    silly question - should my temp increase at 'O' time?

    Roughly how much should it increase by and for roughly how many days!

    (Good question Ella's Mum)

    yep i also never got a dark positive line using OPK's. i got faint positives and took that as BD now! it worked!!!

    like tess, i also used my OPK's as a pregnancy test and i got a stronger positive then!

    this thread is great, its put me in a much more positive mood!

    As per my thread re most likey day to O - I have been getting faintish positive lines on my OPK for the last 3 days, and according to every calculator this is my fertile time. Luckily have been BDing just in case, and after reading this will definitely do a HPT when my period is due !

    fingers crossed and good luck to everyone else TTC!
