I really wouldn’t worry about it–I know it’s hard! Your body always has some LH in it, so it’s totally normal to always see a line. And slightly lighter/darker lines are probably more related to the amount of dye in the tests then anything. Now, if it suddenly goes blaring positive this early, that might be something to watch out for!

Also, I’m not sure what brand OPKs those are, but from everything I can tell from the internet, the Target/drugstore/Walmart brand OPKs are WAY too sensitive for some people, and will give them positives at crazy wrong times. So I strongly recommend Wondfo OPKs (you can get them on Amazon).

Until the test line is as dark or darker than the control they are negstive. The test line will vary in consistency and sometime you can see them get gradually darker before the positive other times they vary and one day youll have a blatant positive. Could be getting close. Monitoring Cm is key to identifying your fertile phase so monitor that too

Firemansgirl:  OPK’s can vary in darkness throughout the non-fertile portion of your cycle. It’s normal. Mine are sometimes that dark, then then next one might have a barely visible second line and back and forth until I get close to ovulation. Then mine usually get gradually darker for a few days until they are positive (equal or darker than the control line), but not all women have that build-up. Some go from light to blaring positive quickly. I use Wondfo’s too btw.

They don’t always get consistently darker. They can be dark, then light, then dark, light, positive, etc.
