I am using the ClearBlue Advanced Digital OPK.
this morning I got a smiley face, but when I ejected the stick the result was very smeary. I’m suspicious out the smiley because I was not expecting to ovulate for a few days at least. Now, my digital stick reader is frozen on the smiley. I took another test, but do not know how to interpret the lines. Manual instructions were not included.
am I ovulating or not? Top stick is this morning, bottom stick is a few hours later.

Looks like the top stick is just defective & the bottom one is definitely negative. Honestly, I find OPK’s an insufficient way to track fertility. What do your fluids look like? That’ll give your a WAY better indication of whether you’re on track to ovulate/fertile right now.

The left line must be as dark or darker than the control line to be considered a positive, so it looks like you’re far from ovulation going by the bottom test.

@TripleNickle: I also use the Clearblue Advanced Digital. Honestly, I dont look at the sticks. I only go by the smiley, nonsmiley, or flashing smiley. I went from no smiley to straight smiley this cycle, a few days earlier than anticipated, and ovulated about 2 1/2 days after my smiley face (I could feel the ovulation pains). I tested with a Clearblue Ovulation Test (not the advanced. I had these left over from last month) 12 hours after my +OPK and it was negative. I’d say, get to BD. What could it hurt if you start a few days early?
What does your CM look like? I also track that as well, but I do not temp.
