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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hello so I had four days of positive ovulation tests and today it was negative. So about when do you think I ovulated?
See Below:: You probably ovulated 12-24 hours after the first test was positive. Once the test is positive, it isn't helpful to keep testing. The additional positive tests don't add a lot of useful information but can be very confusing. I advise my patients to save their money and stop testing after the first test is positive. Best wishes! ...Read more

Good luck! ...Read more

Dr Honore, I had positive ovulation tests on those days so yes I'm sure I'm 17 d.p.o and without a period. Could something else be wrong?
False Tests: The tests are false. They are not reliable. They did not work in your case. If you ovulated and did not get pregnant you would have a period. You did not have a period. Thus you did not ovulate. It is probably time in your life to learn better ways to feel your body's signs and symptoms and not to use 'tests' to follow ovulation. Don't you think? ...Read more

Why do I have a positive clear blue ovulation test while taking sprintec 12 days into my new cycle?
First blame test: While home pregnancy tests are very accurate, everything is fallible, so retest now.
