Do Ovulation Tests Show Positive If I Am Already Ovulating

W/ clearblue ovulation test, does the positive ovulation test show when you are ovulating or is it just when you have an LH surge? Is that the same?
No.: You need 4 more days. Take care. ...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
It says that the test won't show positive until 6 days after ovulation? Is it from the first day of ovulating or from when you had sex while ovulating?
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.
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
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?
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
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

The test: The ovulation predictor test is a test for LH (lutenizing hormone). The LH surge triggers ovulation. Its sensitivity is set for a level consistent with the rise in LH which is not the same for everyone so it becomes positive when the LH reaches a certain level. This is not necessarily the peak of the surge and it stays positive as long as the LH is above that level. Hope this helps. ...Read more
Stop testing: It is normal for ovulation kits to stay normal for several days then become negative. There is no need to check beyond the initial positive result. The hormonal rise that causes the positive result lingers for a few days which will keep an ovulation test positive. Once it is positive then you should begin having intercourse daily. ...Read more
In 12-36 hours: A urine-based OPK detects the increase, or surge, of a hormone called luteinising hormone (LH) that occurs approximately one to two days before ovulation. This is the trigger for ovulation and it's also a signal that your fertile window has arrived. A small amount of LH is always present in your blood and urine. But in the days before ovulation, the amount increases by about two to five times. The 12 to 36 hours between the beginning of the LH surge and the moment when your egg is released is the most fertile part of your cycle and the most likely time for conception. ...Read more
No need to repeat: You stop doing ovulation kits after it turns positive because it will stay positive for awhile. If you are having regular periods and your ovulation tests show you are ovulating there is simply no value or utility in doing more tests. Why the urgency to get pregnant at age 19? Consider focusing on your career and education at this once in a life time point in your life. ...Read more
