Can an OPK substitute a home preg test for earlier results?

I've been reading that an OPK picks up on both hormones, but if I can't tell the different in menstral symptoms and pregnancy, will it help narrow the results down sooner? OR will it just say yes I am about to ovulate (have my period)?

  • I just found out I am preggers and did OPK the enitre week before I found out. They were all negative. Before I would see a faint line but now that im pregnant NOTHING showed up. Then again, everyone is different good luck!
