Hello Bee. So this is only my second month of off BC and I’m trying to get a handle on my cycles as we are going to start TTC in a couple months. Last month I took an OPK on CD10 and it was positive. I just took one today for kicks (CD22) and it was also positive. My cycle was 32 days last month. I read something about prolonged positive OPKs and PCOS and now I’m (probably irrationally) freaking out. Why would I get two positives so far apart in my cycles? Granted, those are the only two I’ve ever taken, but I’m new to all this and now I’m worrying.

kb7: I’ve noticed that I get close to positives all the time. Have you taken a HPT? You also get positive OPKs when pregnant. Also if you use FMU they will be very dark for most women (which I found out the hard way also). I decided to just stop using them and keep temping instead because they drove me crazy.

What are you using? Is it test strips or a digital reader?

kb7: Just to double check, your test line is darker than the control line, right?

MrsN14: I read that you’re not supposed to test first thing in the morning so I’ve been doing late afternoon/evening. I’m thinking maybe I should just quit with the OPKs and just make sure to have lots of sex in the timeframe where it’s most likely I’m ovulating when we start TTC! I was just trying to get a handle on things and make sure I was ovulating properly since being on the pill for over 10 years.
Schatzie821: I’m using test strips.
arielmerms: The test line has been as dark as the control line. I took another one yesterday and it was extremely negative.
