Q: Has anyone used OPK as a HPT

So I was so tempted to test this am at 8 dpo. I know, early. Just wanted to poas I guess! Just wondering if you ladies have used a opk as hpt and if so did it show + before your hpt. I looked it up but I keep getting conflicting results. Some sites say it won't turn + until after a hpt and some say they got a + opk way before an early hpt. Mine was - btw, line was way fainter than control line. My breast soreness and fullness I get after O have diminished so I'm pretty sure thats a good sign I'm not anyway but just wondering.

Yea. I had one left and no hpt's.. I know with my last pregnancy I did take one because I didn't want to use my hpt's yet due to it being so early but I can't remember what dpo. I believe it was about 7 or 8 and it was negative. I know it wasn't any earlier and I got my bfp on hpt at 9 dpo then. It's driving me nuts to remember which day I took it. I always get a second line but it's never been + unless I was bout to O. Thanks for your response :)

When I was pg with my 2nd daughter, I tested with opk's while my hpt was still negative, and they did get progressively darker each day until I got my BFP. I can't remember exactly when they turned +, though- she is almost 8 yrs old now! The tricky thing about opk's though, is you can't rely on them to diagnose pg'cy. It's really just for fun/curiosity if you have extras. Your LH fluctuates throughout your cycle (mine does). It's almost + on opks the day before my AF starts and on cycle day 1 and 2. Like maybe 75 percent as dark as the test line. (Can you tell I've played with them a lot?) Your LH can also get wacky if you have PCOS or during perimenopause.
