Positive OPK 6 Weeks After D Amp C

I had my D&C 6 weeks ago today. decided to start charting and did an OPK test yesterday. It was positive. Could this be HCG from last pregnancy its picking up or am I ovulating? I also did a HPT which was negative after 3 minutes but after about 10 minutes a faint positive came up. My HCG levels are getting lower from my m/c but I still havent had AF yet so dont know if they're back to 0. Is 6 weeks long enough to wait to get a positive OPK?

Hi Helen, I had my D&C 4 wks ago yesterday. The OPK tests for your LH surge, so I would guess if it was positive that you must be getting ready to ovulate. Do you have a lot of cm? I don't think the faint positive after 10 min. on the hpt matters...I think after 5 min. the tests are no longer accurate, so I think the 3 min. ready was probably the correct one. Good luck to you! I'm waiting for af to show as well!

helen, I was referred to peeonastick.com from stacey and found it really helpful. they say that anything that shows up in the window on an hpt after 5+ minutes is usually an evaporation line-you can read more about it on that website. let me know what happens. I am 3 weeks past my D&C and have done 2 hpts to see if my levels are done one last week one today and both came back neg. I would a__sume that it has been 6 weeks since m/c that you are about to ovulate...good luck-keep us posted!

From what I have read, you can get a false positive on a OPK if you use one before your first AF because of left over hcg. You can use OPK as a hpt, because it will pick up hcg.

I did another OPK yesterday that came up positive as well. Am going to buy a high sensitivity pregnancy test today as if that is negative the OPK must be correct. i'll keep you posted
