lucyv2003:  There are things that can cause false positives. Do you have PCOS?

lucyv2003:  Is there any chance you’re already pregnant? Pregnancy can cause + OPKs with enough HCG which is similar to the LH hormone that OPKs detect.

lucyv2003:  I would second julies1949:  PCOS can cause false postive OPKS. PCOS is one of those things that Dr’s won’t really mention it until you have been TTC for at least a year or more  and been unsucessful at the point they’ll test.

 

PCOS is poly cystic ovarian syndrome, its a hormonal/endocrine disorder that causes the body not to ovulate in some/most cases, when the body tries to ovualte a small cyst form where the egg would be release and stays there. There are case where the cyst get really big, also some have no cycles or irregular cycles or extemly heavy painful, facial hair, weight gain.

I was dx with it 2 yrs ago, after we had been trying for year and nothing happended. per my dr I don’t look like someone with PCOS.. I’m very tall (6’0) but average weight for my height, have regular cycles, and dont really suffer from facial hair. The ultrasound tes that they did showed the cysts on my ovaires and other test showed that I wan not ovulating. 

 

So long story short, if it concerns you I would go to your OB to see if they can test you for PCOS, they will take blood to read hormone levels and do ultrasound to ensure that your ovaries are cleared.

Like pps have said, I have also heard that multiple days of strong positives can be a sign that your body is having trouble ovulating. I’d probably keep testing for a few more cycles and if you keep getting tons of positives, talk to your OB.

I have PCOS too.  Not implying that you do, but wouldn’t hurt to go in for a check up when you’re ready to TTC just to get info about testing/charting/prenatals etc.  Even if all conditions are perfect we still only have a 25% chance of conceiving each month so don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t happen right away even if you’re ovulating normally. Good luck!

I have PCOS and basically always tested positive with OPKs before I learned that they don’t work if you have PCOS. That might be what’s causing your positive tests.

I don’t think this means you’re a super ovulator — I think a super ovulator routinely releases more than one egg at the same time, but not for 6 days straight.

In any event, I don’t say this to make you worried — it is probably just a quirk of the test, but it might be good to bring it up with your GYN so s/he can run some tests, if necessary. With PCOS, it’s good to know if you have it before TTC so that you can take the appropriate measures to help you get your BFP. Good luck!

lucyv2003:  To be honest, I don’t know alot about PCOS or anything like that.  I do know that the cycle that I got pregnant I released two eggs and still only had two days of positives, and they were faint positives at that (not as dark or darker than the control line).  With that said, I am in no way shape or form and expert.  I only have my experience to go by and everyone is different!  Good luck when you TTC!!!
