Reliability of the ovulation test

To check for the time when you are ovulating is one of the most dependable and reliable ways to determine your most fertile period when you have the best chance to fall pregnant.

Our test checks for the surge of Luteinizing hormone (also referred to as Leutenizing) hormone in your urine (this surge is referred to as the LH surge), which indicates that the release of the ripe ovum (egg) will be released by the ovaries within the next 24 - 48 hours.

When using the tests correctly the results are reliable and planning can be done accordingly.

Limitations of the test

Certain physical conditions such as ovarian cysts or endocrine disorders may interfere with the interpretation of the test result.

The Ovulation Test will not work during pregnancy, after the onset of menopause or after a hCG injection.

Storage of the ovulation test

  • Stored at room temperature the kit components are stable until the expiry date printed on the foil packages.

  • The test kit should be kept from direct sunlight, moisture and heat.

  • Do not freeze the kit.

Intended use

The Ovulation Test is designed to detect the surge in human Luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine to predict the time of ovulation, i.e. the time a mature ovum is released from the ovaries.

The release of an egg from the ovaries (ovulation) only occurs once during a menstrual cycle and timing of intercourse during ovulation may increase the chance of pregnancy.

Pregnancy is the result of fertilization of a mature egg with sperm.

When to start testing

First determine the length of your menstrual cycle.

This is the number of days from the first day of menstrual bleeding to the day before the next bleeding begins.

Please refer to the following chart to determine when to start testing. The first day of bleeding is day 1.

Cycle length Start to test on Cycle length Start to test on Cycle length Start to test on
21 Days Day 6 27 Days Day 11 33 Days Day 17
22 Days Day 7 28 Days Day 12 34 Days Day 18
23 Days Day 8 29 Days Day 13 35 Days Day 19
24 Days Day 8 30 Days Day 14 36 Days Day 20
25 Days Day 9 31 Days Day 15 37 Days Day 21
26 Days Day 10 32 Days Day 16 38 Days Day 22

Note: If your cycle is shorter than 21 days or longer than 38 days, you should consult your doctor for advice.

Test procedure

Late afternoon urine is the best as it contains the highest concentration of LH.

  • Do the test on 3 consecutive days at the same time each day or until your LH surge has been detected.
  • If your LH surge has not occurred after the third test, it is recommended that you immediately purchase another 3 test kits and continue testing without skipping a day or until your LH surge has been detected.
  • When you are ready to do the test, open the sealed pouch by cutting the end off with a pair of scissors. Remove the test device from the pouch.
  • Hold the test device with one hand, use the other hand to pull off the cap and expose the absorbent tip.
  • Pointing the absorbent tip downward, place the exposed tip in your urine stream for at least 5 seconds.
  • Re-cap the device and wait for the color bands to appear.
  • Depending on the concentration of LH, a positive result may be observed within 30 seconds. However, to ensure that a very low LH concentration is not missed, initial negative results should be left for at least 5 minutes before reading the result.
  • Do not read the test result after more than 10 minutes as it may change or become unreliable.

Interpretation of ovulation test results

Positive

If two color bands are visible, and the test band (T) is dark or darker than the control band (C), you will probably ovulate within the next 24-48 hours.

Negative

If the test band (T) is lighter than the control band (C), or not visible at all, your LH surge has not taken place yet.

Invalid

No visible bands at all. This is an indication of procedure error and/or that test reagent deterioration has occurred. The test should be repeated with a new device.
