Huh? Is this thing working? Hello, McFly?? Is the second line darker than the first? Am I surging or ovulating? Whoever invented the Ovulation Predictor Kit obviously never used one before.
The Ovulation Predictor Kit (OPK) is confusing. You read the instructions and it claimed all you have to do is pee on a stick until you see a second line which is darker than the first. Pretty simple right? NOPE! You have just urinated on all seven sticks only to find out no line or a faded line has appeared. Now you purchase more OPKs and see your second line but wait? The line looks faded so you’re not sure if you have detected a surge or not. You look at that stick from every angle and up to the light, and then you compare it with the instructional photos. You then ask for a second opinion (typically your husband/partner) who confirms or is equally confused at the results. If you want an unbiased second opinion, just knock on your neighbor’s door and ask good old Mrs. Wilson what she thinks or maybe even take a photo and ask your friends. You’re a smart person but this damm box is confusing.
The OPKs would be so much better if it just spelled it out for you.. “Hey crazy infertile, you are ovulating now. Get it on!” Well, the good news is if you’ve had baby-making sex with your partner every other day for the past few years, you will never need to buy one. Giddy up!
Hey, Ovulation Predictor Kit, predict this - we don’t like you!
