I never get a ‘true’ positive. I got pregnant on our 3rd cycle, but I also temped and used OPKs for 3 months prior to starting to TTC. Each month was the same pattern, the OPK test line would get darker and darker, but it was never as dark as the control line. I think it’s because I drink way too much water and can’t ever manage more than a one-hour hold. When TTC, I was definitely a bit worried by it, but clearly not enough to actually test out what would happen with a 4-hold and no water 😛

It wasn’t a problem, though. Currently 16+4!

No, but I charted TTA for awhile and there were a few months where I didn’t get a true positive, but it was much darker than the normal faint ones.  I used wondfos and I think a batch of them weren’t quite as sensitive as the others.  So eventually I ended up holding them in my pee longer than it said which helped (full 5 sec vs. 3 sec- and I did it the whole month so to not throw one day off).  But my temps confirmed O and all my other signs.  So I’d go back and change that darkest test to a positive in my chart.
