It means there is a little LH, but it has to be as dark or darker to be positive. Some people never get a line at all and then bam it is there. GL!

I had a OPK test the first day I started charting that showed up beign about as dark as the control line. i counted THAT as a positive, because the next day, there was NO line. ^.^ and i've had increased sex drive and egg white style fluids.

I didn't do temp charting this cycle, because I didn't expect to get a OPK positive like that. I was expecting it to be blank. ^.^

Make sure to always read the directions on OPK packages!! Some OPK's are considered pos if there are lines even if the test isn't as dark as the control (I've had a few of these). It sounds like yours needs to be as dark or darker to be considered positive. Make sure you test the same time each day and you should start to see that test line get darker. Also monitor your other fertility signs such as cervical fluid and sex drive..... all of these things combined should give you a pretty good idea. Good luck!!
