Can I have a positive ovulation test while im pregnant?

Can I have a positive ovulation test while im pregnant?

Yes: The ovulation test is checking for lh. When you are pregnant a pregnancy test checks for HCG that is made by the placenta. Hcg and lh are very similar molecules. In fact we use HCG as an injection to trigger ovulation for IUI and ivf cycles. This injection will cause an ovulation test to turn positive. ...Read more

Does a positive ovulation test mean i'm pregnant?

Does a positive ovulation test mean i'm pregnant?

No: The ovulation test looks like a pregnancy test, but they measure different things in the urine. The ovulation test measures the hormonal increase (lh surge) that leads to ovulation. A positive test means that you will likely ovulate in the next 24 hours. The pregnancy test usually measures a specific hormone secreted by the developing pregnancy (beta-hcg), so a positive test indicates pregnancy. ...Read more

Normal?: It is more important that you had a positive surge of lh (the hormone detected by the kit) at mid-cycle. I would suggest that you also take note of any other symptoms (cramping / cervical discharge) that you might notice. Yes there is a surge of lh around ovulation, but there is also a slight rise back to baseline at about day 26-28 that the test might be detecting. ...Read more

What are the chances of me being pregnant after having sex on the same day if a positive ovulation test?

Doctor's don't Guess: There is no such list or number. If you are truly in the five day period before the egg is released from the ovary then you did everything right to get pregnant. Sperm left in the vagina on the five days leading up to ovulation are the sperm that will cause pregnancy. ...Read more

Trying to get pregnant an have sex after having a positive ovulation test an have sex twice dose the previous sperm come out if i nut

Trying to get pregnant an have sex after having a positive ovulation test an have sex twice dose the previous sperm come out if i nut

That is normal: Once an ovulation detection kit is positive, you will ovulate or release the egg in 26-40 hours. It is ok to have sex twice. It is normal to "lose" semen after intercourse. The vagina only holds 1-2cc and the normal sperm volume is greater than 2cc, so it has to go "somewhere" and thus comes out. That is a good sign because it means your partner's semen volume is normal. Good luck. ...Read more
