Want to find out how to get pregnant using an ovulation predictor kit (OPK)? Find out all the ins and outs of an OPK here.

Ovulation prediction kits (OPK) are used by many women to help them predict their most fertile times of their menstrual cycle, ovulation. During the ovulation your body begins passing an egg allowing you to be more susceptible to the fertilizing sperm. But how do these kits work? Is it a fine science? Or is it a big guessing game?

Using ovulation prediction kits

Ovulation prediction kits are made so that when you urinate on them it tests for the luteinizing hormone which your body secretes during ovulation. It can test positive up to twenty-four hours prior to the beginning of ovulation. This is made so simple; nothing can go wrong, right? Wrong! Much like everything else in our world, there can be problems. The test simply determines the presence of the hormone that does not mean you will definitely pass an egg. If your body is releasing the hormone but not the egg the tests will not benefit you and you will need to speak with your doctor about further actions.

Ovulation charting

Much like any other product, please follow the directions on the box as closely as possible. They are there to help you understand your test and make it as easy for you as possible. Also try to record your results on a calendar each month and see if there is a pattern that you can try to catch so that you know when you might be ovulating in order to have intercourse. But please be warned that sometimes your body can have a luteinizing hormone spike even when you are not ovulating.

Patience is the key

On to the good stuff! While using your ovulation prediction kit (OPK) you are essentially trying to get pregnant. That is, after all, the purpose, right? Once you have began using your tests you might get discouraged if the test says negative, but not to worry, just wait for that positive. That positive is your green light to try like crazy for a few days. This is your ovulation time and your most fertile time in the month, take advantage. During these times have intercourse once a day which should be enough. Be patient if you do not get a positive the first month. The luteinizing hormone peak is brief and needs to be acted upon as soon as possible. If you miss that spike you may have simply missed your chance that month. There is another month. If you go two months with a negative, please contact your doctor.

Speak with your doctor

A few other questions I would like to address here:

* What if your test says positive a lot? This may be an indication that you have polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and need to speak with your doctor about further testing.
* What if you never receive a positive? Call your doctor, this could mean you are not ovulating at all and need to try to be on medications to help you ovulate on a regular schedule.
* What if you have a test that says positive for more than three days? If this happens once or twice I would not be concerned. However, if this constantly happens speak to your doctor.

    Knowing that you have been trying to conceive for 6 years already, there is a good chance for you to be experiencing infertility issues such as PCOS or polycystic ovarian syndrome. I firmly recommend that you have a preconception check-up with your ObGyn in order for you to determine what particular cause prevents you from getting pregnant. Aside from preconception check-up, it is also important that you should try to avoid stress, keep fit and eat right.

    I have a question. Recently we decided that we wanted to try to concieve for a 2nd child. The first day of my last period was July 22 and ended on July 26. I took a opk on August 7 ( which was day 17 in my cycle) and the lines were very dark indicating it was positive. I was out of state and got back on August 9. My hubby and I had unprotected sex on August 9 and August 10. What do you think are the chances of becoming pregnant? We had sex 2 days after a positive ovulation strip test. ( did not have sex during my fertile window as I was out of state visiting family.)

    A positive result from an OPK indicates that ovulation is a bout to occur in 24 hours. However, the ovum survives for approximately 24 hrs after ovulation, some can live up to 48. It takes about 6 hrs for the sperm to go from your vagina to your egg. You are not likely to get pregnant this time. The best way to conceive is to have a sperm wait for the egg. You may try having sex every other way if possible to ensure your fertile windows are covered.

    My husband and I have been trying for our second child for 10 months now. Our first was conceived accidentally so we never expected to have any issues. I’ve been using ovulation strips for 8 months and we have intercourse the day it shows a positive result, the following day and some months the next day after that. I am getting extremely discouraged and each month I get hopeful only to be crushed when I take a pregnancy test.
    Also, I should mention that we saw a fertility specialist in June and all my blood tests and my husband’s semen analysis came back normal. I also had an HSG test and that came out good. Any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated. I’m getting to the end of my rope and don’t know what else I can do.

    Conceiving can be pretty tough for some couples, even without fertility issues. However, there are some things you can do to increase your chances. You may try having sex every other day instead of waiting for a positive result on the OPK. Having sex every other day ensures that your ovulation days are covered. Try having intercourse in positions that allow deep penetration and stay in bed and elevate your hips for a couple of minutes after sex as it could help sperm move in the direction they need to go.

    I have a question. My husband and I are trying to have a baby now. This is only the second month we’ve tried, but I have been off birth control for about 6 months so I’m surprised it hasn’t happened already and trying to learn more about getting pregnant.
    I’ve tracked my cycle religiously for the last 4-5 months.
    May 2015 period started 24th- ended 29th
    June period started 22nd-ended 26th
    July (lh surge on 4th and 31st) period started 18th, ended 22nd.
    August (lh surge 25th) period started 13th, ended 16th
    September period started 7th, ended 11th
    Is this a normal cycle?

    We had sex a little less than 72 hours from the time the opk test was strong positive. Is there a chance of pregnancy?
