I dont trust in OPK any more

I have been getting positives 3 days in a row all positive extremely dark I thought you only could get those on your 2 ovulation days and then the lines started to fade as you test. But that's not my case. I'm still getting the same dark line every time I test. I need to know my real ovulation day to count my DPO. This is so mess up. At least I'm having my ''happy happy'' each night to see if we get lucky. Wish us luck.

OPKs don't tell if you actually ovulate or when you ovulate

You body may be trying to ovulate but not actually ovulate cause I used OPK and get the same thing and I just found out I'm not ovulating that my body tries to but doesn't.

Nope. Some people have long surges. I got 3 positive days this month and 4-5 last month. The problem with OPKs is that they don't tell you when you ovulate or if you ovulate, they only tell you that you have a surge in LH with should cause ovulation.

I had 7 positive OPK's in a row (then i ran out of tests)... I am pregnant :) So that explained why I kept getting positives!!

Yep, what she said.

This is why charting is helpful even when using OPKs.  OPKs help you see that your body is trying to ovulate, charting tells you that you did in fact ovulate when your morning temps spikes up.

This is good to know cuz I'm due for AF on Monday so I'll be starting my new cycle and I was going back and forth on whether I should chart as well as OPK testing

They tell you when you're having a surge, which happens before you ovulate, after that the LH (hormone that causes O) drops and that's when you should see lighter OPK's.  Also, I've always thought you weren't supposed to test after you got you get your positive OPK. Good luck!
