Quick Answer: How long do you wait to read an ovulation test?

Can you read an ovulation test after 5 minutes?

Ovulation Test results should be read at 5 – 10 minutes for best results. A positive result will never disappear. The colour of the line may become darker, and a tinted background may appear after several hours. Some negative results may later display a faint test line due to evaporation from the testing zone.

Can alcohol affect ovulation test results?

Alcohol administration blocked the proestrous surge of LH and ovulation. In subsequent experiments, alcohol inhibited the surge of LHRH (measured by push-pull cannulation) and LHRH neuronal activation (measured by Fos labeling in LHRH neurons).

When will an ovulation test be positive?

Ovulation most likely occurs around day 18. You should get a positive result on an OPK a day or two before that, on day 16 or 17. It’s a good idea to start testing every day (or every other day) in the morning a few days before that, around cycle day 13.

What will an ovulation test say if pregnant?

If you’re pregnant, you might get a faintly positive ovulation test that’s actually detecting hCG, not LH. This is more likely to be true the further along you are in pregnancy since your levels of hCG in urine will be higher.

How does a positive ovulation test look?

Depending on the type of ovulation test you are using, ovulation tests are usually considered positive when there are two identical lines or a solid smiley face. Proov Predict tests are considered positive when the test line is as dark or darker than the control line.

What does 2 lines on a clear blue ovulation test mean?

If the device gave you a positive result (smiley face in a circle), the ejected test stick shows two lines. As you get closer to ovulation, you’ll still get a negative result from the device, but you’ll start to see the ejected test strips with a faint second line (meaning you’re close but not there yet).

Will an ovulation test be negative if pregnant?

An ovulation test isn’t as sensitive as a pregnancy test, so it won’t pick up hCG as early as a pregnancy test will, and it requires higher levels of hCG to turn positive. In addition, there is no way to distinguish whether the test is detecting your LH or HCG levels.
