  • ovulation test only show when your ovulating. . .
    if you take a HPT too soon it will be a negative when really you are PG.
    wait a week ro two take anouther test. if its still neg then either call ur dr to confirm or keep trying.

  • OPK show the presence of LH, the hormone that is present when you ovulate. HPT show the presence of HcG, the hormone that is present when you're pregnant. In short, I would say "No."
