Hello, I tried to do a search and it said I didn't have permission??? So I'm sorry if this question is redundant.
I have the First Response Early Ovulation kit and am a little confused as to how to read it exactly. The instructions say "the test line may be darker than the reference line". My confusion: do you look for any sign of the test line (even if it's really light?), or do you wait until it's the same color or darker. The phrase "may be darker" isn't very clear what to look for exactly. I took the test this morning and my test line was way darker than the reference line. So does that mean I'm in the 24-36 hour window to ovulate, or have I missed it? I'm day 13 in my cycle and my cycles have been anywhere from 27-30 days. CM is maybe a little more clear, but not really stretchy yet.
Anyway, sorry if this question has already been discussed, but I did try to search and I don't know why I was blocked from being able to do that.
A OPK is positive if the test line is as dark or darker than the reference line (anything lighter than the reference line is a negative) - so you most definately have a positive there!!!!! You should be Oing in the next 12 to 48 hours. Good luck and lots of baby dust!!!!!
