Question: What if ovulation kit is always negative?

Does a faint line on ovulation test mean ovulation is coming?

Q: How come there is always a faint line in the test result window? Does this indicate a problem? A: Women always have LH in their systems, and a faint result line is often normally visible. The level only becomes high enough to indicate impending ovulation when the test is positive (as dark or darker).

What time of day is best to take ovulation test?

You can take an ovulation test at any time of day. But the morning may give you the best results. To boost your chance of an accurate reading, don’t drink a lot of fluids in the four hours before a test. This helps make sure your urine and LH levels are concentrated.

Can you miss LH surge?
