When women wish to ascertain what their most fertile periods are and they are the most likely to conceive, our ovulation test kit is a valuable tool. To test for the time when fertility is at its peak is a way to improve the odds to fall pregnant.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Note: If your cycle is shorter than 21 days or longer than 38 days, you should consult your doctor for advice.
Late afternoon urine is the best as it contains the highest concentration of LH.
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.
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.
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.
