What is the probability that after getting a positive home ovulation test/lh surge that someone not ovulate?

What is the probability that after getting a positive home ovulation test/lh surge that someone not ovulate?

Good question: There is some variability in9 the accuracy of the available otc ovulation prediction kits. If it's working, then the ovulation should occur for the overwhelming majority (>95%) of patients who experience the lh surge. You can have your doctor order a day 21 Progesterone level, and that will confirm ovulation (or prove it didn't occur), to help you be sure. ...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

Why would I get a positive ovulation test one day then negitive results for 6 days then another positive result that only lasted three hours?

Why would I get a positive ovulation test one day then negitive results for 6 days then another positive result that only lasted three hours?

Depends: It depends on the test you use. Sometimes using concentrated urine(like the first specimen of the morning) may result in a false positive test. The test measures a lh surge but may have false positive results around the time of ovulation. Perhaps changing the type of test may be helpful if you are not pregnant this month. Good luck! ...Read more

I have periods every month. Range from 28-34 days. I get positive Ovulation tests. Is it likely I'm ovulating regularly? Is it likely I have inferilty?

Mostly true: If you have regular cycles — and that means 27-32 days, and don't miss more than 1 period per year, let's say — then 99% you are ovulating consistently. The actual day may vary from month to month. ...Read more

Ovulated over a week ago & still gettin faint positive on ovulation test? Due period in 9 days, not preg. What is this? Thanks

Faint + on ovulation: The various tests for ovulation have a slightly different specificity and sensitivity. The result may be done to the test that you've used. Since the + is not due to an early pregnancy hCG, which can happen in some tests, I recommend that you use a different brand next cycle. ...Read more

Rhythm birth control: Well the rhythm method says less likely at this time. However, there are many babies alive today that can tell you it is possible.
Have you thought of : abstinence, condoms, spermicides, oral bcps, and other methods of birth control. If you are looking to not get pregnant, abstinence is the only 100% method. Otherwise, pick two methods and use them. Using just one method is common, but risky. ...Read more

I keep getting a positive ovulating test for 5 days now and im supost to get my period on the 19th what's going on?

First day.: The most informative information of an ovulation test is when you first detect the surge. That usually predicts ovulation in the next 36 hours. There is no need to keep testing once you have a positive. ...Read more

I read online that a small percentage (10-15%) of women can get a positive pregnancy test 1-2 days past ovulation. Possible? Impossible?

Pregnancy: Impossible. To test positive the egg has to be impregnated. It then has to travel through the fallopian tubes into the uterus. It then has to land on the wall of the uterus and begin to grow. It then has to grow to a certain size to be creating and leaking HCG hormone so that the mother's blood supply can pick it up and thus then be testable. The body does not know a pregnancy has occurred. ...Read more

My period this month was on the 3rd. Leght of my period is 30 days. Had a positive ovulation test on the 16 a had intercourse can I get pregnant?

Sure: Luckily, sperm can live for 3 days inside a woman with rare reports of up to 7 days. So having sex just before or at ovulation increases chance of pregnancy rather than having sex late after ovulation. Your timing sounds on target. Good luck. Pregnancy test will turn positive around march 30th. Use first urine of the morning for best accuracy. ...Read more

Trying to get pregnant and i been haveing a positive ovulation test for the past 5 days, i just got my period on dec 2 what could that mean?

Several options: Once the ovulation test is positive, its not necessary (and often quite confusing) to keep testing. You can save the remaining tests for the next cycle! If you began bleeding shortly after a positive ovulation test, it can mean you are having ovulation related bleeding. This isn't a full-blown period usually just some spotting. If it was a full-blown period, then you had a short cycle. ...Read more

If u get a positive ovulation test, does that mean u already ovulated? Or u r about to? What does it mean?

Generally. : Ovulation detection kits are generally accurate and if they show a surge then generally you will ovulate, or release an egg, approximately 26-40 hours later. Occasionally, but not often, you will be a false positive. The odk will show a surge but you did not really ovulate. Uncommon but possible. If you doubt the odk, either try another kit and/or switch to basal body temperature charts. ...Read more

Every month I get a positive ovulation test around cd 13 and then a negstive and around cd20 another positive. Why? Which time do I actually ovulate?

Every month I get a positive ovulation test around cd 13 and then a negstive and around cd20 another positive. Why? Which time do I actually ovulate?

Unclear: After you get a positive ovulation test you stop testing as the hormone that triggers ovulation will linger around. At age 19 it is not typical to be needing to take ovulation tests monthly. If you are trying to get pregnant and having trouble then more official ovulation testing can be done. If you are testing to prevent pregnancy then see an obgyn to discuss birth control options. ...Read more

Can a woman still get a positive ovulation test if you are infertile?

Yes.: Infertility has many causes and ovulation is just one of them. You could still ovulate and your infertility could be caused by a man's sperm issue or tubal blockage. If you don't want to be pregnant, take birth control to stop ovulation. If you want to be pregnant and you've tried for a year, see a doctor! Take prenatal vitamins. ...Read more
