Has anyone ever used a OPK as a HPT????

I've been reading that you can use an OPK(ovulation test) as a HPT (Home pregnancy Test). I took a HPT 3days before my period and it was neg. Today I'm due my period and I took an OPK after reading and it is def! positive!!! I have another HPT but really don't wanna waste the money if I know that the ovulation test is a false result! Tell me your experience please!

  • From my understand an OPK only reads your LH hormone when you are ovulating. A HPT only reads hCG hormone. You can not use a OPK as a pregnancy test.
