    It means the you have a few LH surges during your cycle. There have been studies showing a women's egg develop in spurts. LH is what causes the follicles to develop. They may rise a few time during your cycle. This allows the follicles to grow and pause. Once a dominant follicle is established, you will get a "true positive". By that I mean the OPK positive line will be darker the the control line. Until it reaches that level, you aren't actually ovulating. The LH needs to be at a certain level before the ovary releases the egg for fertilization. I hope this helps. and Baby Dust
