    I think the fertility test is different than an OPK.

    From the FR Fertility Test website:
    The FIRST RESPONSE® Fertility Test for Women is an accurate test of FSH level to assess ovarian reserve (egg quantity and quality) – one of the leading single indicators of a woman’s ability to get pregnant.

    Every woman is born with all of the eggs that she will ever have. Each month one or more eggs will mature in the ovaries in preparation for ovulation. As the eggs mature and are released over time, the number of eggs, which is a measure of a woman’s fertility potential, decreases.

    Follicle Stimulating Hormone, (FSH), is one of many hormones that your body uses to regulate your menstrual cycle and to control the maturation of your eggs. FSH signals the ovaries to mature one or more eggs for ovulation each month/cycle.
    If your ovarian reserve (eggs) is low in quantity or quality, your pituitary will produce higher than normal FSH levels early in the cycle, trying to stimulate your ovaries to produce a mature egg. In other words, when your quantity or quality of eggs (fertility potential) is low, your FSH level may be high.
    Therefore, knowing your FSH level on Day 3 of the menstrual cycle can be helpful in finding out if you are able to get pregnant.
    FSH level assesses ovarian reserve, one of the leading single indicators of a woman’s fertility potential and now it is possible to gauge your fertility potential through a simple at-home test with over 95% accuracy.

    So if the test was positive, you're not really fertile right now.

    Hope this helps!

    I should have added that I have not had an AF since giving birth to my 4 month old due to pumping.

    The fertility test isn't an OPK, its a totally different hormone that the fertility test picks up.

    Other than what Christina said I know nothing about the FR fertility tests.

    GL - I hope you get the result you're looking for - be it BFP or BFN.

    If its a true OPK - yes, you can use it as a pg test. I did that when I was testing with this pg. It was actually a strong positive than the pg test.

    However, if its the fertility test that Missy is talking about then I have no idea.
