Wondering if you can help with Wondfo OPK?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I was wondering ig you could take a look at my Wondfo OPK from today? I have trouble determining if it is positive because usually only half or less of the test line gets dark. Also I took the test with SMU and it looked like this. I am guessing if I take it again in the PM it will be darker.Thanks!

 

 

 

 

OPK positive?

 

 

Here is a link to my chart . I hope it works.

It's hard to tell if that is truly darker than the control line, but it looks very close.  Since you're getting EWCF, I would assume O is around the corner and get on that BDing!

Most of the time, OPK results are easy to read; the "result" line is one uniform color/darkness. Sometimes, however, you may get a result that looks "half positive," like this:

"result" line on left
"control" line on right

When this happened to me, I contacted the distributor (in this case, BabyWishes.org)-- I even e-mailed them the above photo. I was told that the darkest part of the "result" line should be compared with the test line, and that this applies to all brands of OPK's.

This month I purchased some Answer brand OPK's, which I had never personally used before. After my LH surge appeared to last 6 days (going by the above rule of thumb), I made the unsettling discovery that my tap water was also ovulating. So I called Answer's 800# and asked the same question. This time I was told that the dark part of the line must be at least 50% of the total width to be considered positive. Going by THAT, the picture above would be considered negative. (And, in retrospect, my LH surge actually lasted a common 2 days-- and my kitchen faucet is not currently fertile.)

So, it appears that my information from BabyWishes was incorrect; it does, in fact, depend on the brand of OPK.

I have an "OPK Progression" thread in the TTC forum and if you take a look, it is very apparent that OPKs can be very confusing. The OPKs only detect my surge with SMU, never at another time, thankfully I did finally get a true positive. I would keep testing with SMU until you get a few days of negatives (for me I need to test for at least 6 days after).

Thanks! I actually just took another one and it is glaringly positive. No doubt about it. :)
