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

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

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

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

What does it mean if i have four days of positive ovulation tests?

What does it mean if i have four days of positive ovulation tests?

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

Wat does it mean when you have positive ovulation tests for four days in a row ?

Wat does it mean when you have positive ovulation tests for four days in a row ?

Stop testing: It is normal for ovulation kits to stay positive 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
