Negative. Test line has to be at least as dark as the control line.

rockstarlove9:  I got a crappy batch of wondfos I think.  I haven’t been able to get a positive with a single one of the 50 yet.  So I have some that only got as dark as your picture but I ended up considering it a positive because I ovulated like normal that day. They did increase in color a little bit from the prvious OPKs I took but they were still no where near a true dark positive.  so that is what I went off of- plus I get cramps and then my temps show ovulation.  As long as temps confim you ovulated, it could be a crappy wondfo or you could have missed your surge.

Try a different brand if you’re concerned about it.

How often do you test? You might just be missing the actual surge, or have a short one. 

I have also heard OPKs just don’t work for some women. If temps and CM confirm it, I’d say you o’ed.

rockstarlove9:  No, you’re not completely crazy!  I have been temping for over a year now and I am pretty good and knowing when I ovulate.  I got positive wondfos before this batch (they got just as dark as the control line- but never darker) and this batch I can’t get a single *true* positive.  They start barely there, get a little darker, and then fade back out.  But I take them at the same time every day as I always have and my other signs and temps show I ovulate as normal.  I am going to get some easy @ home ones next time I need some to try those out- they are also cheap from amazon.

You could be missing your surge as well, hard to say.  But if your temps and other signs confirm O then I would say you definitely are ovulating.

Buy a box of clear blue and use them to confirm.  I have found CB to be very accurate.

Also, test twice a day.

rockstarlove9:  mine didn’t always get as dark, even when I o’d.  Sometimes I would just mark the darkest day as pos if it corresponded with my chart.

If I was doing twice id do morning (to maybe catch a surge from the previous day) and afternoon.

It’s entirely possibly you’re missing your surge. I get my positives around 6-9pm at night (on the same days my OPKS are as light as yours even at 4pm), and can get another positive with FMU the day after. If you want to check, next cycle when your strips start to darken like that start testing later (do a hold before bedtime) or add a FMU test every day to catch the leftover surge in your morning urine.

My guess is that you’re missing your surge. If you’ve been temping, do you have a rough idea when you ovulate? I would start taking tests a few days before you think you will ovulate, and I would take them 2-3 times a day. One in the morning, one midday and one in the evening.
