Using an ovulation predictor kit as a pregnancy test?

I know lots of women have done before through research - and they have gotten a positive OPK test when their period is due and then found out they were pregnant - so there is NO doubt that they CAN be used to predict pregnancy.

Heres my question -

I am 9 days late for my period - and today just for fun I did an ovulation test (knowing that I can't be ovulating so far into my cycle) - and it had the normal control line, but nect to that was a very faint pink line --- could this be it detecting pregnancy? (because I know that I'm not ovulating!)

  • IT is possible for you to be ovulating it isn't always like clockwork. Test with an actual pregnancy test, if its negative then you are ovulating and you know what t o do.

  • Just because you didn't get your period, doesn't mean you're not on day 9 - 10 of your new cycle. You can ovulate that soon in a cycle. Sooooooo... while yes, it could be picking up a positive pg, it could also be picking up the LH surge for ovulation.
