My friend said she used opk sticks and got a positive on those before she got a BFP on hpt a few days later. Anyone else ever have this or know anything about it?

Nope, OPKS will show that you are pregnant but not until your hormones are high enough to test on an HPT. I tested at 9 dpo with a wondfo and got a light bfp but my opk was negative. At 10 dpo my opk was almost positive and I got a positive on my 88 cent test. At 11dpo I got a positive opk and a positive wondfo, frer, and digi test! Opks are NOT a reliable source as they are not meant to test for pregnancy! Stick to pregnancy tests!

Okay!! I have another totally different question for you! You always seem to have good advice and ideas about things in the ttc world so I thought I had started my period yesterday because I had pink and brown spotting on and off but then yesterday afternoon it stopped and I have had nothing since then. What could this mean? AF was due to arrive fully today!

Have you taken any tests before AF?

Yes and they have all been negative! I called my dr and she said if AF hasn't arrived by Tuesday they will order a blood work up but I wanted to see if this had happened before to anyone because I usually start my period and it is consistent for 6-7 days and then stops.
