We tried to conceive in March. I won’t get my period for another few weeks. I just took an ovulation test and it was positive. Can I still be pregnant and ovulate?”
You can’t ovulate during pregnancy, but ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) will show a positive result both while you’re ovulating and while you’re pregnant. This is because OPKs test for lutenizing hormone (LH), which surges to trigger ovulation and also helps support a pregnancy. LH is also very close molecularly to hCG, the hormone that pregnancy tests detect. So if your prediction kit shows a dark line and you’re pretty sure you already ovulated this month, it could mean you’re pregnant, though other things can cause positive ovulation tests too. Take a pregnancy test as soon as your period is late to find out for sure!
