Customer Question

Hi, I have PCOS, and I have heard that digital ovulation tests give false positives. I took one Monday, one Tuesday, negatives, I took one for 5 days straight, and all positive. Did I receive a false positive?

I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

I am sorry that your question was unanswered for long.

The ovulation test read the hormonal surge before the ovulation. The chance of it being false positive is only 1-2%

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Yes, the chance of false positive is one percent. This may increase to 1-2% in PCOS.
