What happens if my ovulation test is positive?

What does a positive ovulation test mean? If you’re predicting ovulation and tracking your fertile window using ovulation (LH) tests, a positive test result marks your fertile window. This is because luteinizing hormone surges about 36 hours before ovulation and triggers the ovary to release a mature egg.

Can ovulation kits detect pregnancy?

They’re not meant to detect pregnancy and a positive ovulation test does not mean you’re pregnant — that’s what we have home pregnancy tests for! However, you may have heard about some women using their ovulation tests as a pregnancy test.

Will LH be high if pregnant?

No, LH surge does not remain elevated once pregnant. In fact, LH levels are really low during pregnancy (< 1.5 IU/L), and thus not active on end organs and tissues.
