very tricky...

Every women knows the rule of a pregnancy test from the time she starts having sex, right?
One line = negative
Two lines = positve

So when it comes to an ovulation predictor test you would think that the same rules apply, right? Wrong!

I am on day 20 something and hoping that all the vacation and relaxation would help me get into a normal cycle, so I took an ovulation prediction test to see if maybe it was coming sometime soon. I was SO excited that I got 2 lines! Now, one was light and the control was dark, but at this point I will take what I can get. I was super happy all day, thinking this was going to be a good month.

The next day, I read the instructions...
There are always 2 lines. A faint line= negative, a dark line= positve. HUH?
I know I should have read the directions before, but who is mean enough to do that to a woman. I know the rules! You do not mess with a TTC woman and show her 2 lines unless you mean "positive".

I bet that test was designed by a man.

Yeah, it has to be as dark or darker than the control line to be positive. It's an annoying test. I didn't know there were ALWAYS two lines though. I have definitely gotten ONE line very early in my cycle. Test again in a couple days.... for me, the line starts out faint and gets darker and darker until the day I ovulate.

I still say you are on the right track!
