Sure, but...: One can get a "positive" urine pregnancy test at any time, but at 5 days post ovulation, that would be a false type of positive test, known as a "false positive." It means the positive test does not represent a current pregnancy. The reason is that ovulation pops out the egg but then it takes time to fertilize it, and it also takes days for the egg to travel into the uterus, and later to implant.
