Ok I need opinions. This is the first time that I've used OPKs and I'm not sure what to think. Did the surge happen this morning? Or is the line darker just because it was FMU (I thought with an OPK, time of day wouldn't matter.) CD11 is today so that's a morning and evening test. Am I out this cycle?
I would defiantly say this morning. But I do know your not supposed to use FMU. There is supposed to me more of the hormone in your pee later in the day, so it could have been really dark by noon! I would go with +OPH as of this morning. Congrast!!
Hello, This os my 2nd cycle using OPKs so I'm not a professional on these at all but I'll throw in my 2 cents...and I could be wrong, but I'm not sure you have gotten your + yet. all of those test lines look lighter than the control line (could just be my eyes) how long are your cycles? If you have an average 28 day or more cycle then you may not O for a couple more days.
They do say for most tests not to use FMU on OPKs, but the brand I got this time told me to use FMU. but like the PP said, they say noon is a good time to get the really good + OPK.
I say keep testing...are you temping this cycle also?
do your temps make it looks like you O'd on CD 11? also curious if you have a link to your chart? I had the Mirena IUD out in March and didn't get a + OPK that cycle..now granted I was only testing once a day, I wish I would have tested twice a day.

Not positive yet. When you test in the evenings, are you holding for a while before testing? I just ask because I noticed all your evening tests are lighter and wonder if it is because your urine is diluted.
I'll tell you, the cycle that I got pregnant, I never had a positive OPK. I missed the surge. It was dark but not quite positive that morning and by the next morning, it was lighter. But I obviously ovulated cause I got pregnant.
