I saw a post on here a while back about really affordable opk’s and hpt’s on Amazon so I ordered 40 opk’s and 10 hpt’s for like $11… Today I’m on my first day of testing with the opk’s but the results are confusing…
The packaging says, 2 dark lines positive, 1 dark line (top) & 1 faint line (bottom) negative and 1 dark line (top) negative.. How are you suppose to differentiate this dark positive line from the faint negative line? Is it really as dark as the top line when it’s positive?

Thats why I stopped buying any of the OPK with just the lines. It does get confusing no matter who they are from and the results can be read wrong. For a positive it is suppose to be darker or the same shade as the control line. If it is at all more faint than the control it is a negative.

I use the cheap ones from amazon. Like PP said, you’re looking for a line that is about as dark (or darker) than the control line. For me though, the appearance of any obvious line has always meant that I’m about to ovulate. Occasionally, the line gets darker the second day. But yes, the test line really does get super dark when LH spikes in your system. And be sure you wait the full amount of time to read them – 5 min I think? There have been plenty of strips that I looked at right away and thought “not today”, only to go back a few min later to a dark test line.

i use the amazon ones, they are annoying to read, but once i think i have a positive i use the expensive ones from clueblue.

I used the amazon ones, and never got a positive opk – it was always a faint line. what really came in handy was the pregnancy tests, which are still much cheaper than a drug store. i got a positive the day before my missed period.
