Quick background first...
OPK's test for hormone AB, HPT's test for C, ovulation hormone is AB and pregnancy hormone is ABC, so OPK's can show a positive pregnancy
I am 10 DPO, so I know it is possible for an HPT to be positive. Last night I did an OPK strip (since I have a lot more of those than HPT's), and it came up way darker than my OPK test line last week, so here I am being all excited because of the positive result. I took an HPT this morning, and not even the faintest line. I'm thinking that the OPK, since it tests for the bigger part of the pregnancy hormone, would show a positive result sooner than an HPT would (since it tests for the smallest component). I did already call my doctor and I'm going for a blood test this afternoon when my husband gets home, but I'd like some of your opinions and/or experience with using OPK's to detect pregnancy, especially if you've have a very similar situation.
