I think if you are getting clear temp shift then you are ovulating. May just be missing your surge with OPK.

mrskitty5:  Yes! It’s absolutely possible that you’re missing the LH surge if you’re only testing once per day.  For example, if your surge happens at 3pm and you test at 8am every morning, you’d likely never see your positive, but it would absolutely have happened.

I never got a positive OPK despite testing every day, and I am currently almost 28 weeks pregnant.

I have not gotten a postive test for the last two months and have not concieved but this is somewhat reassuring that it could be just test error

If you have a temp shift you should be ovulating. Maybe youre missing your surge.  How light are they? I find mine have been lighter than the control line but they still get noticeably darker right before O (not as dark as control,  but still a dark line) and are super light the rest of the days.

Plus I cant test other than FMU because my urine is too diluted the rest of the day and it would be even lighter after a positive (for me) with FMU.  Days I tried to do 11 am or 5pm tests after a “positive” (for me) that morning were waaay lighter than the morning test!

mrskitty5:  I decided to try an OPK after we’d been trying for three months. I never got a positive, probably because I didn’t test often enough and drank too much water. That was the month we conceived. My son is a year old now. So, yes!

Yes, definitely. As a PP said, you might just be missing the time of day for your surge. I’ve never had a positive despite testing twice a day, and am currently 33 weeks pregnant with my second child.

I’ve seen my line start to get darker than previous days test that barely even had a line but never match the test line.  does a LH surge slowly increase or happen quickly? I’m wondering if the surge is still building or maybe the darker line means its now.

mrskitty5:  yep.  I never got a real positive opk, and I’m 33 weeks pregnant. I think I drink too much water.

mrskitty5:  OPKs don’t work the best for me.  I’ve had plenty of cycles where I never get a positive, but my temps shift.  Maybe I’m just missing my surge, but I’ve also tried testing twice a day and that didn’t work either.  I think my “positives” just aren’t quite as dark as the control.

I also have long, irregular cycles.  Maybe I don’t make enough LH.  Who knows.

mrskitty5:  I’m on the same boat as you. I get clear temp shifts and get my period every month, but I’ve only ever had blaring positives on two occasions. Unfortunately I didn’t become pregnant on either and have been on a long journey finding out I have endometriosis. I just got the Clear Blue Digital Fertility Monitor and hoping it’ll be more helpful. But to answer your question; you absolutely can. I didn’t get a “real positive” last month and had O confirmed via transvaginal ultrasound. I also drink tons of water. I surger in the late afternoon to evening and there’s just no way I can avoid drinking water for 2-4 hours.
