Hormones: An ovulation kit only stays positive for a short time. It only stays positive during an lh surge, which only lasts about 2 days. Before and after that it should be negative. Now some women do not ovulate, or they ovulate but with a low hormone level, and other women have a naturally abnormally elevated lh level that interferes with the kits. A change in bleeding pattern can signal problems as well.
