Can I get pregnant if the ovulation test is negative? If the test is performed correctly and the LH surge has not yet occurred, you cannot get pregnant. But in the case of a false negative or low sensitivity of the test, it is possible to become pregnant if you have sex on the days of expected ovulation.

Can ovulation tests tell you if you’re pregnant?
Can I use an ovulation test as a pregnancy test? Nope—the only thing an ovulation test can tell you is when your body is at its peak fertility and has the best chance of resulting in pregnancy. While it may not tell you if you’re pregnant, an ovulation test kit is a useful tool when you want to start trying for a baby.
What will an ovulation test say if pregnant?
Ovulation tests detect LH, which is similar to the chemical that pregnancy tests look for, human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hGC). In fact, they bind to the same receptor. If you’re pregnant, you might get a faintly positive ovulation test that’s actually detecting hCG, not LH.
