Can you get a positive

Can you get a positive ovulation test and be pregnant? Here is my test I’m 8 days late and still nervous about taking a HPT.

As far as I'm aware ovulation tests check LH (luteinising hormone) which spikes in ovulation. Once someone is pregnancy LH tends to be low as progesterone and oestrogen increase and negatively feedback. So in answer, no I dont think it would happen. However if you are late you should probably just take a pregnancy test.

Yep, absolutely -that can happen, and it did to me. The pregnancy and ovulation hormones are molecularly similar, so you can test positive for ovulation when pregnant 😊

Definitely can, for my first pregnancy I was only a day late but usually like clockwork with no sign of the usual period symptoms I would suffer so used an ovulation test after doing some googling and getting curious if it would work and it came up positive. Got a pregnancy test after that which was also positive. Good luck!
