can you use an ovulation test to detect pregnancy?

Hi I was diagnosed with endometriosis in May, i had a laparotomy and have been told to stay on the pill without any breaks, but we have been trying to get pregnant for nearly two years so i came off the pill and i am now late for my period ( i am never late) i have lots of ovulation sticks- can i use them to test if i am pregnant?

Hi Faith, ovulation test and pregnancy test detect different hormones so you will not be able to use the ovulation test to check if you are pregnant, better get yourself a pregnancy test. Good luck! x
