Even though I’m on a break, I did a few OPK tests last week just to keep up with ovulation since my cycle was longer this last time. These last couple of cycles have been the only ones in quite awhile that were not medicated at all, not even Metformin. I quit everything after our last IUI and my surgery while we were awaiting Specialist Guy’s appointment. So, no meds means back to unpredictable cycles.
Anyway, I forget what cycle days they were on, but I did one OPK 3 days in a row. The first one showed a light second line, the second one a darker line but not nearly as dark as the reference line, and then the third day the line was lighter than the first day, barely visible. So, WTF? Was it the tests or did I not actually ovulate this month? I didn’t buy anymore tests and 3 was all I had on hand, so I have no idea if I get to blame the dollar store OPKs or my PCOS for this. Blah.
