It looks close, I would try again a couple hours after, I don’t think it’s positive just yet.

It looks like an almost positive. LH surges happen towards the afternoon, so I would re-test then and see if you get a clearer result.

It looks positive to me, although as you said the control line looks a lot lighter than the wondfo’s I’ve used.

I’d say yes, or close to it. Mine never got as dark as the control line, but started getting lighter the next day. Now that I’m 5DPO, I can definitely confirm it was my positive. I think some people’s surge is short and easy to miss.

BeeLadylike:  Yep!  I would say positive!  Similiar to PP, my lines never got as dark as the control, and that is supposed to mean it is negative.  I am 9 weeks pregnant now, so I know it was my positive!

BeeLadylike: I’d have said that was a positive! If you think you’ve missed it, it means you’ve already ovulated whereas the last test showed you were about to ovulate. The best advice someone gave me on a TTC thread was to test three times a day.

BeeLadylike:  Positive tests mean you’ll ovulate in the next 24-48 hours, so BD today and tomorrow!

i think that was a positive. What CD are you?

BeeLadylike:  That one was super close to +. It’s possible that just a couple hours later you could have had an obvious +, or maybe not. Your LH surge could just be really short, but some people never get a complete + and still ovulate. But I was going to ask the same thing as the PP, what CD are you on? For me, some months I get close to an almost + like that one then go negative for almost a week and then I get a very + one. I would continue to chart your temps to see if you get a temp shift. And also, are you checking CM and cervical position along with OPKs and temps? For me, checking those is what lead me to test after I thought I already got a + because I still had tons of EWCM. Do you use Fertility Friend to chart? If not, I would highly suggest it because it’s easy to share your chart on here to get more advice.
