Does the result line on a ovulation test strip get darker the closer you are to ovulation?

This is my first time ever using opk's. They have been consistently getting darker. The last one I took was just slightly lighter then the control line. Thanks a bunch.

  • I HATE the ones with lines. Yes it will get progressively darker but you are looking for it to be as dark or darker than the control line. I bought one pack of the digital ones so when I was thinking maybe it was the same color I could use one of those to 'double check'. That seemed to help me with the confusion with out buying a pack of $50 test every month.

  • in my experience the line was about the same and then got suddenlty darker the day i ovulated...slight differences don't count because your urine could just be more concentrated
