Our expert says:
Most OPKs use a rise in LH that occurs just before ovulation is taking place to detect and predict ovulation. However in patients who have PCOS they have an endogenously raised LH levels. This endogenously raised LH levels may give you a falsely positive result on the ovulation prediction kits. So in patients with PCOS it is advisable to rather use an ultrasound method and monitor follicular growth as a better assessment of when ovulation is going to take place.
