Can OPK's detect pregnancy?

Can you use fertility tests sticks if you run out of home pregnancy tests? I was asked this and I wanna say the answer is no but I wanna ask yall. Are the LH surge and hcG hormone similar or no?

  • I doubt it. They are two completely different hormones. Your body produces hcG once your pregnant and you don't produce it any other time.

  • Some people say that they can detect pregnancy, I have heard that they have worked for some people and then not work for other people.
