What are the goals?: Early ovulation occurs sometimes. Unless you are actively undergoing infertility treatment typically one can just watch and wait to see what happens. If trying to get pregnant go ahead and have intercourse based on the results. Continue trying for 12 months and if not pregnant by then see a doctor for a fertility evaluation. Ovulation tests sometimes cause anxiety for couples.
