How accurate are ovulation tests?

I've used one every day for 5 weeks and so far its been negative for ovulation each time....getting more and more worried that I don't even ovulate

Answer: Hi, Although the manufacturer's claim that they are very accurate, the research and science is not as convincing. Some are more accurate than others but for many women, ovulation is subtle and is not always accompanied by a very high elevation in hormone levels. Have you considered keeping a temperature chart and/or charting your mucous changes? Check the information and articles on the Huggies site about both of these. If you're still concerned then a check with your GP may be useful and if warranted, a referral to a fertility specialist. Best Jane
