 Hi All,
I am using ovulation tests for the first time this month and I got a faint pink link last night and another one this afternoon. Now I know the directions say that it is not a positive test until the line is the same color or darker than the control line but I am wondering if this means ovulation is coming? Thanks for your help.

in my experience with opts, even on the day of ovulation, my test line wasn't darker than the control line, but it was almost as dark, to where i knew it was positive, plus i was using it at the same time as charting my temps, and it corresponded.

For me, I get a very faint line until I am set to ovulate, then the test line starts to get darker. ANY change in that test line from the faint line before to me is a positive sign my LH is surging. Since the test only test at a certain level of LH and every womens level is different, sometimes I think it won't get as dark as the control line. Keep your tests lined up and you can sometimes see a pattern as they slowly begin changing in color. Once they start to change, BD like a mad woman!!

I always have 2 lines, my test line is fairly light though until I get my LH surge, then it gets pretty dark. It never gets darker than the test line, but it's the same shade.

Hello, what i know is that the hormone is always present and that is why you get a faint pink line. Until the levels skyrocket then you get it darker. Im in the same situation as you, it was pink until close to the tentative day of ovulation. However, the chart confused me because the tentative day was something way before and the ovulation calendar said other date. I suppose i am not filling the chart info properly. In any case, if you get pink line as i have read is because the hormone is always present. Check here:
