Do You Think I Am Pregnant?

Ran out of FRER, faint positive with OPK

I took Clomid this cycle and ovulated CD 20, took FRER 11DPO it was negative, however AF has not come, its about 3 days late. Decided to repeat today (CD 37) and only have OPK. I read OPKs can detect HCG so decided to test. Have faint positive on 2 tests, but not sure now if the test is detecting LH or HCG! So confused :/ Has anyone used OPK to detect pregnancy?

Am I Pregnant?

Comments

OPKs have a high false positive as well as a high false negative rate for being pregnant. If an OPK is positive, you could still NOT be pregnant, and if it's negative you could still BE pregnant. Coincidentally, you could have a positive OPK, an elevated LH when you are pregnant, but a positive OPK will not confirm the pregnancy. You could have a false positive OPK but not a false positive pregnancy test. A positive OPK will not tell you with enough certainty that you are pregnant. And if the OPK is negative, you could still be pregnant. Only a positive pregnancy test tells you that you are pregnant, and if the pregnancy test is positive that's a nearly 100% confirmation you are pregnant. A positive result on an OPK could mean you are near ovulation, pregnant, or the test is picking up an entirely different hormone. Or it may be negative, even if a woman is pregnant. With a positive HPT, there is no doubt. A positive OPK will not tell you with enough certainty that you are pregnant. And if the OPK is negative, you could still be pregnant.
