This is my first month using OPKs. I O’d late last cycle and got my hopes up when my period was “late.” My tests day the only time it is positive is if the control and test line are the same shade or of the test line is darker I’ve been testing for a week now, on CD 14, but usually have a 32 day cycle. The test line has always shown up faintly but has recently been getting darker. Would you count this?

Nope, needs to be as dark as or darker than the reference line

it’s negative, but if it’s darker than your previous ones I’d start testing frequently (at least every 12 hours)–some people’s spikes are super short-lived, so you could miss it otherwise.

It’s negative. It needs to be the same shade or darker than the control line. That’s exactly how mine looked today. I expect it to be positive on Monday but did it today just in case.
Eta: also be sure to only check it in time frame given. Sometimes they’ll be darker an hour or more later but if it wasn’t at the 10 minute mark then it’s still negative.
