Do taking ovulation home tests, such as first response actually help a women in conceiving a pregnancy?

Do taking ovulation home tests, such as first response actually help a women in conceiving a pregnancy?

Ovulation: Women with regular cycles, have a surge in lh hormone levels that matures and ovulates (releases) the egg 24 - 48 hours later. This is the time you can get pregnant. If you have intercourse after 2-3 days ovulation, the chance of conceiving is far less but not zero. After 5 days, the chance is < 1% unless ovulation occurred later than you anticipated. ...Read more

Negative pregnancy test at 8-9 days past ovulation. I used the first response early result test this afternoon. Can I still be pregnant?

Negative pregnancy test at 8-9 days past ovulation. I used the first response early result test this afternoon. Can I still be pregnant?

Could be: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

Would a first response pregnancy test be accurate enough to take 6 days before my expected period? I had unprotected sex on 3/30 (my ovulation day)

Would a first response pregnancy test be accurate enough to take 6 days before my expected period? I had unprotected sex on 3/30 (my ovulation day)

Not Valid: If it is negative you won't know if it is valid or if you did it too soon and then will be testing again and again. Please be patient and wait. If you are not pregnant then please know you waited too long to try. It is sperm in the vagina before you ovulate that are likely to cause pregnancy. ...Read more

I am wondering if an ovulation test would always be positive when pregnant. I know they test dif. hormones, but it seems this Q has mixed responses. ?

 I am wondering if an ovulation test would always be positive when pregnant. I know they test dif. hormones, but it seems this Q has mixed responses. ?

Sometimes, but: The shortest answer I can give is: OPK and hPT will both detect hCG (pregnancy hormone) so can be used as pregnancy tests, BUT the OPK is not as sensitive to hCG. Practically this means hPT will correctly show pregnancy before the OPK can detect it; making the OPK a pretty lousy way to check pregnancy. Hope this helps. ...Read more

FIRST RESPONSE Early: Result pregnancy test is reported to detect HCG up to 6 days prior to your anticipated period. 22 days after having sex is enough time to detect hcg.

If this is the case then you should change to a different birth control method. The other interpretation is that you read the ovulation test wrong or simply had a false result. ...Read more
