Has anyone mistaken an OPK for a pregnancy test?

In my rush to get to the bathroom, and get a cup and a test before I peed myself I grabbed an OPK instead of a pregnancy test, and when the second line on the test peeked through I was SOOO excited.

I called my husband, and told him I had a surprise for him when he got home.
I took two more tests throughout the day, and when they came back negative, I couldn't understand why, and then it dawned on me, I took a stinking OPK instead. AHHHH!!!

I felt like an idiot, and sad at the same time :(

  • I'm sorry sweetie. I've never had this happen.

    Was the OPK positive because you can use an OPK for a pregnancy test but it must be positive and not just have two lines.

  • Give Kerp a break! Sheesh! Not everyone is in their 20's or 30's & trying to have a baby! I'm 40 & the first time I heard of one was probably only about 5 years ago! They didnt have those things in 1990 when I got pregnant.

  • WHY did someone vote down my answer about OPKs being able to be used for pregnancy test. ROFL!!! That's a fact!!

    And Anon..all she had to do was say "What is an OPK?" She didn't have to add the rest!

  • Woah ladies, this was supposed to be a lighthearted question. The OPK wasn't positive, as the test line was lighter than the control.

    Kerp, I thought it was common knowledge in the TTC (trying to conceive) forum, and your response came off a bit rude.

  • I've seen women on here use them, and if opk's are positive you are pregnant.
