Chances of False Positive OPK While on Clomid

For a woman who is trying to conceive, a false positive result on an ovulation predictor kit test can be very stressful and aggravating. If you are on Clomid, find out how not to get a false positive.

What is Clomid?

Clomid is the most popular and successful fertility drug on the market today. Clomid has been proven very successful in boosting ovulation in women who have trouble ovulating on their own. Clomid is also a good choice because it is usually very well tolerated by most women who take it. Of all of the fertility drugs on the market today, Clomid is one of the least expensive ones out there. It is taken orally instead of by injection. Clomid is usually a doctor’s first choice when prescribing a fertility medication. However, sometimes Clomid can do some funny things. Sometimes, a woman that is taking Clomid will experience a false positive result on an ovulation predictor test as a result of Clomid. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Why can Clomid cause a false positive?

Clomid is a very complex medication, and it changes the way that all of the hormones react to one another in the body. Clomid causes the body to produce more LH and FSH than it usually does, causing a woman to ovulate. However, if a woman takes an ovulation predictor kit test too soon after finishing a round of Clomid, the Clomid might not have had a chance to fully get out of her system. This can cause the ovulation predictor kit test to detect the LH in the body that was caused by the Clomid, instead of the LH in the body that was caused by ovulation.

When to test

Knowing when it is okay to test can be very confusing. Most doctors suggest that you wait at least three days after finishing Clomid before taking an ovulation predictor kit test. This should give the Clomid enough time to get out of your system so you don’t get a false positive result. If you take Clomid on days three through seven of your cycle, you should wait until at least day ten to test. If you take Clomid on days five through nine of your cycle, then you should wait until at least day twelve to test. This will ensure that the medication has had enough time to get out of your system and will not interfere with your results at all.

The bottom line

For a woman who is trying to conceive, a false positive result on an ovulation predictor kit test can be very stressful and aggravating. Follow the tips in this article to ensure that you don’t get a false positive result.
