Based on our research, we recommend testing your LH in the afternoon (between 12pm-6pm) for the best chances of catching your LH surge. If you’re trying to conceive, we also recommend testing twice a day when you’re in your fertile window to maximize your chances of catching your surge.
When should I take a ovulation test morning or night?
You can take an ovulation test at any time of day. But the morning may give you the best results. To boost your chance of an accurate reading, don’t drink a lot of fluids in the four hours before a test. This helps make sure your urine and LH levels are concentrated.
What day should 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 time of day does LH surge?
The LH surge triggers the egg to fully mature and to be released from the follicle. A study of 155 cycles from 35 women demonstrated that the onset of the LH surge primarily occurs between midnight and early morning (37% between 00:00 and 04:00, 48% between 04:00 and 08:00).
Can I take ovulation test at night?
There’s no wrong or right time of day to test ovulation. Some women prefer to test their urine in the morning, whereas others test it in the afternoon or evening. Whatever time you choose, make sure to test at the same time each day.
How long should you hold your pee before ovulation test?
This is “Your Usual Cycle Length”. You can test any time of day, but it should be at about the same time each day. It is important that you have not urinated for at least 4 hours before testing, and you should avoid excessive fluid intake before testing.
Can I get pregnant 2 days after positive ovulation test?
You can have sex with your partner two days after getting a positive ovulation test. The egg can survive for 24 hours after it is released, and the male’s sperm can stay in the woman’s body for as long as five days.

Can you feel ovulation?
It’s possible to feel yourself ovulate, but many women don’t notice it. You might notice a slight pain in your side about halfway through your menstrual cycle. But if you’re trying to get pregnant, don’t wait for the twinge. That means your fertile window is soon closing.
What if my ovulation test is always negative?
A negative LH test does not mean that you’re not fertile, or that ovulation will not occur. This only means that no LH surge has been detected at the time you tested, so it is encouraged to keep testing. You may need to test more often, 2-3 times a day to catch the surge.
Why do I never get a positive ovulation test?
Another possible reason you won’t get a positive result is you’re not ovulating. It’s not abnormal to have one off cycle, once in a while. However, if you don’t get a positive result after a few months, or if your cycles are irregular, talk to your doctor.
Does a faint line on ovulation test mean anything?
Q: How come there is always a faint line in the test result window? Does this indicate a problem? A: Women always have LH in their systems, and a faint result line is often normally visible. The level only becomes high enough to indicate impending ovulation when the test is positive (as dark or darker).
