Dear Ronel

In the presence of polycystic ovarian syndrome, which normally results in an endogenously high LH level the ovulation predictor kits do not work as well. They can give you a higher falsely positive and a higher falsely negative rate. Your better option in predicting when ovulation is taking place is doing serial ultrasound measurements of the follicle growth.
