How accurate are ovulation tests usually?

It varies: Ovulation prediction kits are one predictor of ovulation. Others are menstrual cycle length, pain at ovulation, vaginal and cervical fluids. Ultrasound is a great way of detecting ovulation. If everything looks good, ovulation has probably occurred, but the only real test is whether you get pregnant.
