i got pregnant in June and miscarried about 2weeks or so ago. I’m not sure the exact day to say it started because I spotted a few days then stopped. Then started heavy bleeding with clots full on miscarriage July 17th. We are trying again this month. I got lh strips because I wasnt sure if I’d ovulate the normal day this time or what since having the miscarriage. Well I’ve been checking the last 3 days and getting this same result. A very faint line. Is this it? If so is this a bad sign that the lines not darker? I’m worried my hormones are low. I Went to Er during my miscarriage and my hcg levels tested very low. The pregnancy test they used showed negative so they drew blood to quantify and it was 11!

I’m really sorry about your MC bee. That OPK is negative (to be positive, the “test” line, which is the one on the bottom in the photo you posted, needs to be as dark as or darker than the control line). But there’s no reason to be concerned about a negative OPK, or even a bunch of negative OPKs in a row that all look exactly the same. My OPKs would look exactly like that for days before suddenly turning positive. Your cycle may be a little weird since you just had a miscarriage, so you may ovulate later than usual or even have an anovulatory cycle.

thank you! I didn’t realize the line had to be as dark or darker, I’m glad you told me that.

There will always be a faint line as you always have LH, however it goes as dark as/darker when you have an LH surge and then its classed as positive. Test in evenings, theyre more likely to be positive then 🙂
