Depending on the test, I'm not sure what "nearly positive' means, but the hormone that those tests check for does not gradually increase. It's a sudden spike. I'm guessing that you have already ovulated, and the first "nearly, " was positive. ...Read more

So the pain sensation typically precedes actual ovulation. ...Read more
