@smcopp89:  Have you taken a HPT by now? Its highly recommended. I was curious by your question and did some googling, as I am sure you have and it says it could mean you are pregnant, but no guarantees.

If OPK’s are used as a HPT, then it has a high rate of false positives and false negatives as it tests a different hormone.

I think it’s time to take a pregnancy test 😉 Haha but I never had any will power…you would be 11 dpo now?  Quite a few people get a BFP to show up by 11 dpo (including me!) and some people don’t get it until later.  

OPKs aren’t a reliable as a pregnancy test, but it is true that if you do get a + pregnancy test than often times the OPK will be + too, because LH and hCG are so similar of hormones, and the OPKs can pick up hCG and it will act the same as LH and make the test turn darker, but LH will most definitely not show up on a HPT.  So only sure fire way to know is to take a HPT! Good luck!  FX for you! 🙂
