  • STick those back and use them next month, if you need to. :)

  • No, that tells you in you are ovulating only. Not if you are pregnant.

  • i'd have to say there is no way they could tell you if you are preggo, unless you took them every day for a month and you never ovulate... i'd keep them and use them next month if you are not pregnant already

  • OPKs do pick up hcg, so yes, they can show as being positive for pregnancy.  But, they're not  accurate for use as a pregnancy test.  hCG and LH look like the same thing to an OPK.  Read this article, it explains it better than I can:

  • They don't tel you if you are pregnant, you only ovulate for a few days a month... Wishing you best!
