Ovulation Test Having trouble viewing the file?
Ovulation test kits are a great tool for any couple trying to conceive. Ovulation tests offer a cheap and effective way to monitor fertility, and they can be used by anyone in the comfort and privacy of their own home.
Ovulation tests work by monitoring increases in LH (Luteinizing Hormone) in urine. LH is a hormone usually present in blood and urine with highest concentrations at 24-48 hours before the ovulation. This condition is also commonly referred to as LH Surge. By monitoring LH Surge, ovulation tests allow you to time sexual intercourse to give the best chances for conception.
The ovulation test of Womantest is ultrasensitive. Our ovulation tests detect as little as 20 mIU/mL of LH in urine. This is among the best sensitivity available. Most of the tests sold in the market detect only 25 mIU/mL of LH in urine, so many women that secret a little amount of this hormone can not detect the LH surge.
The reability of the tests of Womantest is higher than 99 %.
- Collect the urine in a clean and dry container (e.g. a plastic glass). Do not use first morning urine samples as LH is synthesized in your body early in the morning. It will not show up in your urine until later in the day. The best time to collect your urine is between 10 am – 8 pm.
- Reduce liquid intake about 2 hours before collecting your urine as a diluted urine sample can prevent the test from detecting LH surge.
- Remove the test strip from the sealed pouch and use it as soon as possible. Immerse the test strip in the urine sample for at least 5-10 seconds with the arrow end pointing toward the urine. Do not immerse the strip above the printed MAX line. 4.Remove the test strip from the urine and lay flat on a non-absorbent clean surface. Wait for pink-colored lines to appear. Read result within 5 minutes. Do not read result after 5 minutes.
Interpretation of results:
- LH Surge: If two pink- color lines are visible, as long as the test line (T) is the same color or darker than the control line(C), then, you will probably ovulate in the next 24-48 hours. If you want to be pregnant, the best time to have intercourse is after 24 hours but before 48 hours.
- No LH Surge: Only the control line(C) appears, or the test line (T) is present but in a lighter color than the control line. This indicates that no LH surge has been detected and you should continue daily testing. Invalid: No line appears in the control region.
NOTE: Insufficient specimen volume or incorrect procedural techniques are the most likely reasons for control line failure. Review the procedure and repeat the test with a new test strip. If the problem persists, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Precuations when to star testing:
To determine when to start testing, you must first determine the length of your Menstrual Cycle. Your menstrual cycle length is the number of days from the first day of your period to the last day before your next period starts. Determine the usual length of the menstrual cycle over the last few months. Then, refer to the Cycle Chart to determine on which day you should begin testing.
NOTE: If you are unsure about your cycle length, you may begin the test 11 days after your first period, since the average cycle length is 28 days. Perform 1 test each day over a 5 day period or until the LH surge has been detected.
