Can a ovulation test be positive if you are pregnant? Is it true some women have a cycle or similar to one during their pregnancy?

In brief: Two questions
Tricky answer in a few words.
Women do not ovulate or cycle when pregnant; this is myth. Some bleed from other causes they confuse for a period. An ovulation test could in theory be + but not from ovulation, only if the lh test cross-reacts with hcg. Since a pregancy test is positive before the next ovulation, there'd be no reason to test ovulation.
