Ovulation: A surge in lh hormone levels matures and ovulates (releases) the egg 24 - 48 hours later. Signs that confirm ovulation are change in cervical mucus or some abdominal discomfort or spotting due to the change in hormone levels. If the test is negative, you can still ovulate but may need a more sensitive test. If you have irregular cycles, your test could be negative because you aren't ovulating.
