Maybe I'm confused?: generally the test tells you when to expect ovulation, not the other way around. You feel you already know when ovulation will be and are then testing? If you already know you do not need to test. I suggest let the test tell you when to expect ovulation, not the other way around. Good luck. ...Read more

Hello so I had four days of positive ovulation tests and today it was negative. So about when do you think I ovulated?

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

I took an ovulation test and it was positive. Then I took a different brand ovulation it was negative all on same day.......Did I ovulate?

That pain is much more likely to be accurate than any gimmick known as 'an ovulation test.:' ...Read more
