Hello.Welcome.You underwent a ovulation prediction test at your fertility specialist clinic.This means there has been a increase in Leutinizing hormone in you which means you are ready for ovulation in next 24 to 36 hours.Get back to your Gynec for ovulation studies.Good luck.

Hi.. Welcome to healthcaremagic community forum..
Fertility test probably refers to ovulation test. The test is much similar to Urine pregnancy test where a sample of urine is tested for presence of Luteinizing hormone. This hormone is present in the urine both during ovulation and during pregnancy.
Hence the misinterpretation. A positive ovulation kit with negative urine pregnancy test indicate that you are ovulating and not pregnant..
