Does anyone else have inconsistant OPK's?

I've been tracking opk's due to it being too early for a hpt. Yesterday morning is was a very dark line starting at 8am than gradually faded @ 11am and 7pm was nearly existing. Then this morning I tried it and it was dark and defined again. I understand how soluted urine can effect it picking up on hormones, but is this normal for it to be so unconsistant? I wasn't drinking alot yesterday because I knew I was going to be testing opk's....

  • Wait a sec... you mean the same one? Or you tested three times?

    I personally found OPKs completely USELESS. Mine said I was NOT ovulating when my BBT chart said I clearly WAS... and the CHART was right because my son was born nine months later.

    Save your money. Leave off the OPKs, start charting instead. will help. And if I remember correctly, you thought you were pregnant already? When was your last period?

  • I don't know if I am pregnant, I haven't had my period in a while. I've always gone an average of 3 months without mesntrating. Sometimes I have all symptoms of menstrating without bleeding. The HPT came back negative, but it's only been 2 weeks today or tomorrow... So I've been trying to use an OPK to watch if it picks up on any hormone levels and if it changes (goes away) I figured the odds of me being preg are min. *just a theory for being impatient and not having a clue if I am or not* Just been trying to narrow it down a little bit.
