How many times a day can you take an ovulation test?

A lot of stress, a prolonged illness, or even hormonal changes and fluctuations can lead to multiple peaks in LH levels.

The short answer: not long. Eggs are only viable for about 24 hours after they’re released. That, combined with the 36 hours between a positive ovulation test and ovulation, means you may only have about 60 hours (or 2 ½ days) during your cycle when conception is even possible.
When will an ovulation test be positive?
What does a positive ovulation test mean? A positive ovulation test means your LH levels are surging, and you should expect your ovulation to happen anytime between the next 12 and 36 hours. This signals the opening of your fertile window — when intercourse is most likely to result in conception.
How high does LH need to be to ovulate?
The duration of your LH surge can be between 3 to 11 days however it is the onset of the curve that determines ovulation, which usually takes place within 12 to 24 hours. A low LH peak of 2.5 fold the median value of baseline, is enough to trigger ovulation – which means you don’t need very high values to ovulate!
Can you have a false LH surge?
Some women experience false LH surges during which the luteinizing hormone has small peaks before it fully peaks. This could lead to you to time intercourse too early. Such false LH surges are common in women with the Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS).
Can you ovulate the same day as LH surge?
The LH surge indicates ovulation will occur at some point within the next twelve to forty-eight hours (on average). The window is large because it is different for everyone. Some people ovulate the same day as the LH surge and some ovulate two days after the surge.
