so i just started using the wondfo brand opk, and i started testing almost right after my period ended. I thought i got a positive one on the the 9th(today) in the morning (wasnt able to BD though), but then when i took one tonight the test line wasnt as dark. Did i miss my O time. Or should i BD tonight anyways
I also took one in the AM on october 8th but never took another one that night.
(i feel like the line is darker on the AM one, then the one before it and after it)
*to edit: i also took a digital ovulation test tonight, and that came back negative as well

Middle one appears to be positive – What cycle day are you?
you may have a short surge.
For reference, these were my positives:

the picture cut it off, but the top one is CD 8 and the bottom two are CD 9.
i definitiy didnt think i would test positive this early, but ive read that theres a small chance that it does happen as early as day 8 or 9.
im wondering if i should continue using them for the rest of the month. Or hold off and start again next month.

Definitely could be a true positive. You may have a short surge. Keep using them the rest of the cycle just to see!

And yes, BD today and tomorrow!!

once i get a positive, do you think its possibly to get another positive one sometime this month. Or do you think it could be a false positive possibly?
this is my first month using them.

I’m no expert! But I know the OPKs don’t confirm ovulation…only a temp shift does.

Hi! It is possible to get more than one positive OPK per month. The month I conceived I had three lots of positives throughout the month and finally ovulated CD27. I was temping though so I knew to keep up with OPK testing. If its your first time using OPKs then I would keep testing for the rest of your cycle to see what your body does.

It’s possible that you surged starting the night of the 8th. Once I start seeing a semi-bold line, I start testing 2-3x a day (morning, afternoon, evening) if possible. Below is this month’s cycle which was a crazy fast surge:
CD10 5pm – line was bold. But I didn’t think it was as dark as control line. I took a Clearblue digital and confirmed negative. Still BD’ed because I knew ovulation was imminient.
CD11 6am – Didn’t take a picture, but it was pretty much like the first picture. Bold, but not dark as control line.
CD11 4pm – Wondfo looked positive! Confirmed smiley face on Clearblue! We had a party at 5pm but left early to go home and BD, esp since DH had to work overnight.
All subsequent strips on CD12 got lighter and lighter. I also started burning up a little on the morning of CD12 and had a feeling I was ovulating, which was confirmed by the next morning with a temp spike. If you don’t chart temps, I highly recommend it. Temping and opk strips have opened my eyes tremendously about how my body works. If I hadn’t tested multiple times a day, I would’ve likely missed my surge too. It does take time to figure it all out though, esp seeing your cycle trends over time. I was super lost the 1st month. Good luck!
