ovulation test

Does a faint line on the "Test" band means that you are going to get a darker line soon or on the next day when you test again? Sorry, its my first time of using the ovulation test.
I know the instruction said it is a negative even when you see a faint line.
But Im wondering, does it means that you'll get the positive result soon.
Thanks for help ladies..

  • Never taken an ovulation test but I do know that you ovulate 14 days b4 your next period, the egg is usually viable for about 3 days as is sperm. So if you attempt to get pregnant 14 day's b4 your period you should have a 3 day window to actually concieve.

  • It usually gets darker gradually. So if you have a faint, barely-there test line, chances are you're not going to get a positive in the next few days.
