I've been having mild cramping for a couple weeks now. I'm over due for my period now. since I have some OPK left, I used them just for the fun of it. they came back positive for 6 days in arrow til I ran out the test. I bought pregnancy test last week and the result was negative. Just wondering what's going on with my body and if anyone goes through this? i'm having cramps still but still nothingAnswer Question

Okay a positive on an OVULATION PREDICTION test is NOT the same as a positive on a PREGNANCY test.
An Ovulation tests look for an increase in LH (luteinizing hormone), ou're supposed to be looking for a change in the strip color to be darker indicating that LH has increased. (Or depending on the test the "positive" line should be the same color of the control indicating the surge in LH, a "faint line" is NOT a "positive")
A pregnancy Test looks for an increase in hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin)
If you don't know how to read the inserts in the tests it's proabably best if you direct all questions through your doctor. If you still have not gotten your period in a week and PREGNANCY tests are still coming back negative, GO SEE YOUR DOCTOR.
