When you take a ovulation test and it shows positive is it faster to ttc?

Faster?: The most likely time to conceive is to have intercourse around the time of ovulation and a positive ovulation predictor test tells you that you are ovulating then but I'm not sure what you mean by faster. Hope this answers your question. ...Read more

Will a digital ovulation test show positive if you are pregnant? If so, how is this even possible? How would it pick it up? I've heard this many times

Will a digital ovulation test show positive if you are pregnant? If so, how is this even possible? How would it pick it up? I've heard this many times

Possibly: An ovulation test detects lh in the urine. Lh and HCG (pregnancy hormone) are very similar chemically, so a test for one will often detect the other. The ovulation predictor may not be as sensitive as a regular pregnancy test. ...Read more

How long after ovulation does it take for a pregnancy test to show positive?

11-12 days: after a certain ovulation a home test will be accurate. Since most women are not 100% certain of the day they ovulate, waiting 13-14 days for a missed period is sometimes more efficient. Good wishes. ...Read more

Can an ovulation test really detect the hCG hormone as well. Why would an OPK show up positive several days after certain ovulation?

Yes: There are two subunits in fsh, lh and HCG so there is some crossreaction in the kit. The kit is used to detect lh, but it can also detect some hcg. I would not expect to see any HCG a few days after ovulation so i suspect it is just picking up leftover lh. If you were pregnant and used the ovulation kit a few days before your missed menses, it would be postitive. ...Read more

Currently based on calculation I should ovulated CD16 - Cd21. I have used OPK test kit n show positive on CD 13-16. On 16 I had white Egg discharge.

Currently based on calculation I should ovulated CD16 - Cd21. I have used OPK test kit n show positive on CD 13-16. On 16 I had white Egg discharge.

Good sign: The egg white discharge is probably cervical mucous that is showing the effects of the hormonal changes we see at time of ovulation. Some of us older providers used to do a test of the mucous called a spinnbarkeit test to assess the "stretchiness" of the cervical mucous. The other was checking for "cervical ferning" by placing mucous on slide, allow to dry and look under microscope for ferns. ...Read more

Can an small abnormal ovarian cyst cause a false positive ovulation test? First day of positive OPK . Regular 28day cycle.Chart shows ovulation as wel

Can an small abnormal ovarian cyst cause a false positive ovulation test? First day of positive OPK . Regular 28day cycle.Chart shows ovulation as wel

Probably: Depends on what the definition of "small abnormal cyst" is? But any follicle that's functional can trigger an lh surge to start the ovulation process. The other possibility if you were scanned at a particular cycle day, is that you ovulated before the scan even as close as minutes before the scan and the early corpus luteum could be missed leaving only the "small cyst" to be seen on ultrasound. ...Read more

If conception occurred, would a pregnancy test show positive 1-2 days after ovulation? Can ovulation occur 1-2 days before expected period?

If conception occurred, would a pregnancy test show positive 1-2 days after ovulation? Can ovulation occur 1-2 days before expected period?

Probably not: In a natural cycle, a pregnancy test should turn positive only about 10-12 days after ovulation, at earliest! (the exception is that in a medicated cycle, if you use an ovulation-triggering medication such as ovidrel/hcg, you can get a "false-positive" around the time of ovulation. In a healthy cycle, the "luteal phase" (time from ovulation to the next period) should be at least 10-12 days. ...Read more

What causes a nearly positive ovulation test?

Couple things: Pcos (polycystic ovarian syndrome) can cause your natural lh levels to be a little high and affect the test. Maybe you ovulated but your hormone levels were low. A bad test strip or just a false test. ...Read more

How many days should I get a positive ovulation test?

How many days should I get a positive ovulation test?

Ovulation: Ovulation is an event. It is the release of an egg from the ovary. It causes pain or cramping that many females learn how to recognize. This is known as mittelschmerz. Ovulation kits try to predict ovulation by a surge in hormones or a change in hormones. What is much more accurate is knowing that your fertility is high on the five days leading up to the release of the egg. ...Read more
