Ovulation period: After a confirmed ovulation, your best chances for getting pregnant is anytime (or multiple times) within the next 72 hours (ie, 3 days).

No: Actually that is a good time to do the insemination. The ovulation predictor kits generally precede an ovulation by about 24 hours.

A 32-year-old female asked:

Is it normal to have a positive ovulation test only for one day ?or it has to be positive more than that?

Yes: The ovulation tests pick up the LH surge. The lines on the strip have varying degrees of intensity corresponding to the control. The surge indicates ovulation will occur usually within 24-36 hours- go for it.
