Q: when using ovulation predictors...

Please be patient I am getting to the desperate stage! When using ovulation predictors I know that when the test line is just a little bit lighter than the control then I am not ovulating. Does that mean thought I the hormone is building and I may ovulate fairly soon? I have been trying to conceive for about 4 months and nothing. I thought I could be this month and I was devastated to find out I was not. I have very irregular periods with my last one 12-11-11. Could I have a fertility issue as well? Advice suggestions welcome :)

my periods are so irregular i have no clue really. My last was 12-11-11, then the one before that was 10-24-11, then the one before that was 8-8-11 so its very hard to get even a close range for my ov. i am going to get a few more strips and test twice a day to monitor. I ordered a 50 count from online and should be getting those by the end of this week. I just so sick of hoping and waiting I am taking charge this cycle and I will end up pregnant!

Oh and I am pretty overweight as well. I am trying to exercise more often and lost at least 10 or 20 pounds to see if that helps get me regular. At this point i am trying just about everything!

Well, I was using them every day for a while (the 20 pack) and most of the time I didn't even have a second line. I took one today and it had a second line but not darker than the control. I've having cramps low and to the right the last day or so and I am hoping and praying that could be possibly be ovulation around the corner....this ttc thing is very stressful :(
