This is really weird. This typically only happens with an LH strip when you are pregnant (because HCG is structurally similar to LH). In your case, it doesn’t sound like that’s possible given where you are in your cycle. Sorry, I’m not sure why this is happening. If you didn’t ovulate, then I would have guessed that you would be getting a faint second line the entire time, but perhaps I’m wrong about how the test would look in an annovulatory cycle.

@clisarahcalibruno:  this is where temping comes into play. If you are charting your bbt, then you’d probably see a temp shift by now to confirm ovulation on cd19.  I guess you’ll just have to keep testing with opk to see if you’re going to have multiple surges or not.  How is your CM? If it’s creamy now then I’d stop testing with opk and say you ovulated after the surge on cd19

@clisarahcalibruno: This happened to me and it turned out I was pregnant and the “period” I’d had was actually a subchorionic hematoma (scary word for a benign condition). I had a healthy pregnancy and delivery. Maybe try testing just to see?

I would definitely take a pregnancy test just to rule it out. I’m pregnant now and I took an LH test for shits and giggles one day and it was really positive

@clisarahcalibruno:  congratulations! What awesome news for you after the frustrating confusion that is TTC!! 

 I’m having a similar issue atm, with persistently high OPKs.. hopefully for the same reason (but I don’t think so with the temps I’ve been taking). But just wanted to say thanks for updating and hopefully all is going well for you! X
