YES! LH and HCG are structurally very similar, so an OPK can turn positive when exposed to HCG! God luck!!!

tea_berries: I've heard of women actually using OPKs as pregnancy tests, but I've also heard that a HPT will be much more accurate. So, even though OPKs can turn positive when pregnant, it is recommended to take a HPT to confirm. Hope that makes sense :-)

yup but I will try anyway just to see. 'Coz I have them at home and well much cheaper than the HPT's but I will check again on thursdays with a FRER to make sure

I did the Opk as an Hpt when I got my last bfp. It took about 4 days after the bfp to get a pos on my opk. It does work, it just takes longer. It does have to be as dark as the control to be a pos.  Also, not to dampen any hopes by any means, we do get random surges, too. I tested the theory and opkd every day of my cycle. There were 4 pos opks at very different times. Only one was in the "fertile window" and temps confirmed it. But, yes Hcg and Lh are almost identical in chemical makeup. I hope it's a bfp. Get an frer, it will tell you for sure :)

If I were you, I would just go and get a pregnancy test. If it's positive, you're pregnant :-) If it's negative, you're probably ovulating. Best of luck!
