I was just wondering if you end up pregnant (conceiving) are your opks suppose to stay positive or can they go to negative even if you were to end up pregnant? I have a month worth of supply so I was just wanting to use them even after I got my first positive. I ended up having a positive on opk for 2 days and today it's negative....

Thanks ladies!

I've heard of pregnancy showing up on them but I really don't know.

OPKs can be positive when you are pregnant. I'm not sure if they will always be though. They aren't reliable as a pregnancy test.

Last cycle was my first one using them and I got + for 3 days, then O'd on the 4th day.

Nope, they can go negative. And they can be positive if you aren't pregnant. LH and HCG aren't the same...similar, but not the same.

I did test with an OPK for pregnancy (after I got my BFP) and it worked.  However....  It went negative after ovulation before BFP.

Mine was just barely lighter than the control line the day before I got my BFP
