Wow,  that looks pretty positive to me! 


12-36 hours after a positive test,  you ovulate


Good luck xx

I don’t suppose you’ve taken a pregnancy test? Otherwise, I guess you could ovulate that early but I think it’d be worth a visit to your doctor if you’re feeling anxious!

Sorry to hear about the confusion with your cycle and the OPK!

I’d be curious to know if the levels stay positive over the next few days.  In some women with PCOS, levels of LH can be high throughout the cycle, thus rendering OPKs ineffective at predicting ovulation.  Are your cycles usually regular? Do you usually ovulate?

Or as another poster suggested, it might be worth trying a pregnancy test.

It might be worth taking a pregnancy test. As far as I know, you can get double lines with an OPK if you are pregnant. In fact some women use OPKs as pregnancy tests when they are short of HCG strips. Good luck!

You’re either about to ovulate or already pregnant. How heavy was that ”period” you got? Hcg can turn OPKs +

It looks like you will probably ovulate soonish, but there’s no way to confirm that you did ovulate just using OPKs. Your body can make multiple attempts at ovulating without actually getting there. I would definitely have sex now in case you do ovulate. 
It might be worthwhile starting to do some fertility charting if you’re wanting to understand what all is happening in your cycle, as the only truly conclusive way to be sure you ovulated is tracking your basal body temperature (Unless you get pregnant of course, that’s also very conclusive lol)
