However, many women are able to use an ovulation kit as a pregnancy test as well. When an ovulation test is used, it looks for a spike in the LH hormone. This hormone rises when a woman is ready to ovulate.

When a pregnancy test is used, it also looks for a rise in a specific hormone. This hormone will rise when the woman is pregnant. While the two tests look for increases in different hormones, an ovulation kit cannot actually tell the difference between the two. For this reason, when a woman misses her period and takes an ovulation kit, it should produce a positive reading.

If you suspect that you are pregnant, it is always a good idea to confirm the results that you find through an ovulation kit with a pregnancy test or through your doctor. While the ovulation kit has been shown to determine pregnancy, it is always a good idea to be certain.
