So, first things first. I have no idea whats going on with my cycle this month. I was sick earlier last week and my “period” came on cd 23 instead of cd 32/33. I didnt ovulate up to tht point and I chalked it up to being sick. Today I’m cd 5 and still coughing and felt my ovary hurting when I coughed. So I also got my pregmate ovulation tests today and thought what the heck lemme take one. And this is what I got in the pic! Do you guys think I’m about to ovulate? This never happened b4. if I didnt get these tests today ibwouldnt even be testing until next week! What do u think? :/

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 +

Thank u guys so much for ur replies. I was away and so busy I didnt get to respond until now. However, I have been taking more opks and since that really positive looking one the line started to get lighter the day after. Though very slowly. The lines were still strong but I could tell they were lighter and fading. I havent taken one yesterday and today simply because I dont feel like I ovulated and I think this was a false surge or some fluke. I dont have any symptoms of ovulation or progesterone. And no I’m not preggo I took a test and bfn 🙁 Idk whats up with my body but I will keep testing with my opks to see if the lines start to darken up again later on for a true ovulation.

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)
