Exactly how well do the internet cheapie OPK tests work? I got a faint positive tonight, but it's definitely not the same color as the first line... I know on the CBE opk they say it has to be the same color or darker for it to be your surge...

what are your ladies experiences? I'm thinking it will be darker tomorrow but I have no comparison to go off of.

The line needs to be as dark or darker than the control line--same as the other OPK's.
I've used the IC OPK's before but now my RE office makes me use the Walgreen's brand. I found that the Walgreen's OPK's have bolder lines--the IC's were thinner and even the control line was a little lighter...but they were so much cheaper!!!
Are you using the test strips or the sticks? I had issues with the urine leaking through the window of the strips and I wouldn't be able to see the results or the results were strange. After many times, I finally realized that if I turned it upside down when I POAS I didn't have an issue.

I use IC OPKs and I love them. They have been very accurate for me.
