This is NOT a positive test! I thought it was but if you look at the picture of the booklet the test will be WAY darker then the control! A true positive is a deep purple and not violet at all..

If it is like yours though it should not be long, it just means the progesterone is building up. Goodness when I was learning about all that stuff I used a whole bottle the first two months testing for a two week period and sometimes 2x a day. If you ahve a fast LH surge then you may have to test around night time (8-9:00pm) to see a positive. If the test just looks like that then starts to fade the next day, you missed testing for it and have already O'd.

Best of luck and I know it is frustrating but it will get easier when you know about when you O and what a true positive looks like!

go to pee on a stick ******* and they have pictures of OPK's here is a copied part of FAQ's on OPK's

13. My test line looks "half positive"-- only one side of the line is dark. What does it mean? Most of the time, OPK results are easy to read; the "result" line is one uniform color/darkness. Sometimes, however, you may get a result that looks "half positive," like this:

(sorry the picture does not show here:(  )
"result" line on left
"control" line on right

When this happened to me, I contacted the distributor (in this case, BabyWishes.org)-- I even e-mailed them the above photo. I was told that the darkest part of the "result" line should be compared with the test line, and that this applies to all brands of OPK's.

This month I purchased some Answer brand OPK's, which I had never personally used before. After my LH surge appeared to last 6 days (going by the above rule of thumb), I made the unsettling discovery that my tap water was also ovulating. So I called Answer's 800# and asked the same question. This time I was told that the dark part of the line must be at least 50% of the total width to be considered positive. Going by THAT, the picture above would be considered negative. (And, in retrospect, my LH surge actually lasted a common 2 days-- and my kitchen faucet is not currently fertile.)

So, it appears that my information from BabyWishes was incorrect; it does, in fact, depend on the brand of OPK.
