Ovulation Test Positive 2 Days in a Row?

One of the most common causes for confusion as far as ovulation predictor kits are concerned is when an ovulation predictor kit remains positive for two days in a row. What causes this?

Ovulation predictor kits

Ovulation Predictor Kits can be a great tool for women who are trying to get pregnant. The over the counter tests are a quick, easy and inexpensive way for women to track their ovulation and find out when their most fertile times are. Ovulation Predictor Kits work by detecting the surge of LH that happens right before a woman ovulates. By detecting the LH surge in the body, an ovulation predictor kit gives a woman a “heads up” that she will be ovulating within the following 48 to 72 hours. This way, a woman will be able to plan to engage in sexual intercourse around this time to ensure the best chance of getting pregnant. Claim Your 20 Free Pregnancy Tests – Click Here

Ovulation predictor kit confusion

While ovulation predictor kits are usually easy to use and read, sometimes they can be confusing, especially if a woman is not experienced with using them. One of the most common causes for confusion as far as ovulation predictor kits are concerned is when an ovulation predictor kit remains positive for two days in a row. A woman might think that something is wrong with either the kit itself or her own body when she sees a positive result for two days in a row. However, this is not usually a cause for concern.

The reason

The reason that an ovulation predictor kit can sometimes show a positive result for more than one day is actually pretty simple. Once the ovulation predictor kit picks up that first surge of the LH hormone, it is sending the signal that a woman is close to ovulation. After that, a woman’s hormones might stay high for a few days. Really, the only test that matters is that first positive test. After the first positive test, a woman doesn’t really even need to be concerned with testing for a few days after that. As long as a woman receives one positive test, she should be assured that ovulation will occur within a few hours and anywhere up to three days later.

Other reasons

Sometimes, in some rare cases, an ovulation predictor kit will pick up LH before the surge. This is when your body is “gearing up” to ovulate, but perhaps hasn’t reached the actual surge yet. If you get a positive ovulation predictor kit result, you should also check your basal body temperature and your cervical mucus to make sure that all of these factors are pointing towards ovulation. After that, get busy, since you only have a few hours!

    I’m 40 and ttc for 9 months. I always have 3 positive opk kits each month but this month I’m on 7 days positive. I’ve been taking Vitex for the past 2 cycles and I can feel my body ovulate with tiny cramps around my ovaries. Or so I think that’s the pain I feel.

    Any help would be appreciated

    I just got my package of conceive easy in the mail this morning and took an opk because I know I should be ovulating soon. I got 2 lines which would be a positive according to the packaging the test strips came in. However, EVERYTHING I search says that a positive OPK HAS to be either darker or as dark as the control line in order to be a positive. Mine is just a little bit lighter therefore leaving me a bit confused…This is my first time using an opk since my daughter and son were a breeze to conceive…Been trying 7 months now for our 3rd which is why I ordered…
    Thanks in advance!
