No, nothing on previous cycles. We had been using them for 6 months or so and she hadn't had a cycle or if she did the OPK strip missed it. There was no baseline to go on. She did have one strip show up positive, but the test line wasn't darker than the control line and when we retested nothing showed up. Shouldn't have ignored the initial reading but hindsight is 20/20.
I'm sorry it didn't work out for you! I have had one cycle, and a bit of a baseline to go on, fortunately. One thing to know about OPKs is that the test line doesn't need to be darker than the control line, just equal to, and it doesn't even need to be the whole line, you just compare the darkest part of the test line, even if its small. The surge might also pass quickly. It only lasts about 12- 48 hrs and some ppl will miss that window altogether.

Have you tried Creighton? They claim success for people who have constant mucus. They simply look more closely at the mucus - but they do it in a systematic, scientific way.
I am familiar with Creighton as well as Billings. I am still unsure about my mucus. I have an idea of what going on with it, but it is still so unclear, and I feel it would be too unreliable to depend on mucus only.
