Faint line on ovulation test - what does it mean?

Many women are confused with how to use ovulation tests. They often think that a faint line is a positive result. If taking a pregnancy test, even a faint line means you are pregnant. However, taking ovulation test is different.

To start with, let me give you a brief description on how ovulation test functions. Ovulation test functions by detecting the reproductive luteinizing hormone (LH). Just before ovulation, a brief, marked increase in the amount of luteinizing hormone occurs. Ovulation test kits detect this sudden LH surge, allowing you to predict, with great accuracy, when you will ovulate. If you need to learn more about ovulation, read here.

Why is there a faint test line on the ovulation test?

The LH hormone is present in your body during the whole cycle. That is why you may have a very faint test line to start, but it should get darker as you get nearer to your ovulation day. The luteinising hormone (LH) gives the ripening egg the final push it needs to fully ripen and be released from the follicle. When your test line gets as dark or darker than the control line, then it means your ovulation will occure in 24-36 hours.

If you have irregular cycles, you may experience a faint test line for a long time before the ovulation actually occurs. I recommend tracking your fertile days to know, when your ovulation usually is and start using the OPK 3 days before expected ovulation. If you are not sure on how to determine your fertile days, there are many sources on the internet.

In order to be pregnant fast, you should also start to excercise, eat healthy, stop smoking, try to relax. There are many things that can affect your fertility and it is good to learn about things that affect fertility. If you are using ovulation test, it should be easy for you to determine your ovulation and become pregnant very quickly. You have to follow instructions of the ovulation test and have sex in 24-36 hours after your positive result.

Remember - faint test line on the ovulation test is not a positive result. You need a dark test line or a line darker than the control line.

    1. Hi

      If you are trying to get pregnant naturally, you must read this writing!

      Last week, I came across this incredible holistic pregnancy program written by a nutritionist and a health consultant. Her name is Lisa Olson.

      Lisa has the incredible ability to cut through all the BS and hype that surrounds overcoming infertility and getting pregnant naturally.

      Do you want to learn how to get pregnant and give birth to healthy children from someone who has herself cured her infertility (and coached many women in reversing infertility issues), or from someone who just read about how to get pregnant?

      Sorry, but experience wins out in my book. I will always want to learn from the person who's actually done what I'm trying to do.

      If you're battling with any type infertility or are struggling to get pregnant especially if you're on your late 30's or late 40's, you MUST check this out --

      I don't endorse many products. Mainly because they are mostly hype and don't live up to expectation. Lisa's new book called "Pregnancy Miracle", is an exception! This material is excellent and a MUST READ for anyone trying to get pregnant naturally and dramatically improve their health and well-being.

      Now, I know many of you are saying, "Oh no, not another 'get pregnant in 7 days' program". To be totally honest, I thought the same thing. Rest assured, this is not the case. It is not a quick fix, or gimmick. Its 250+ pages of solid, clinically proven holistic information for getting pregnant. She starts from square one and teaches you everything you need to know. Doesn't matter what type of infertility you have and regardless of your age or lifestyle, you WILL learn something from this book.

      Here's what the author Lisa Olson had to say about her incredible program:

      "After 14 years of trial, error and experimentation, I finally discovered the answer to infertility and developed a fool-proof system to getting pregnant the natural way - no drugs, or surgery necessary. And now I'm finally revealing my secrets in this new 'encyclopedia' of pregnancy called, Pregnancy Miracle.

      I will be your own personal coach, take you by the hand, and lead you through the lousy advice, hype and gimmicks...and directly to the sort of inner balance perfection that will end your battle with infertility forever and help you become a proud mother of your healthy children.

      Don't even THINK about buying any pregnancy or infertility product, drugs or going on a gimmick pregnancy program until you read my revealing, no-holds barred holistic getting pregnant book..."
