If I ovulate early can I take a hpt early?

Hi all

Just wondering if I ovulate early does this mean a hpt would show up positive earlier than women who ovulate late?

Thanks Vickie

No matter when in your cycle you ovulate, it will still take time for the egg to fertilize, travel down the fallopian tube, get to the uterus, implant (between 6 - 12 days after fertilization) and then another couple of days to have enough hcg in your system to get a positive pregnancy test.

If you ovulated early then yes it is possible for you to get a positive earlier than you normal would. Since its based on how long it takes the egg to implant after conception, if you ovulated a couple of days early then you could technically get a positive a couple of days earlier and vice versa if you ovulate late.
