How do ovulation test strips predict your most fertile days?
An ovulation test strip works by detecting the female hormone levels, also known as luteinizing hormone (LH), in a urine sample. This hormone is usually released just before ovulation occurs, and it triggers the ovaries to release an egg. Identifying an LH surge will make it easy to pinpoint the most fertile days in a woman’s cycle and schedule sexual activities accordingly.
How do ovulation predictors work?
As mentioned above, ovulation strips are designed to detect luteinizing hormone levels in urine. The test strip contains a chemical that reacts to the luteinizing hormone in the urine sample. This is shown in a line on the test strip. If the test line is darker than the control line, then it means that you are having a peak LH surge and are likely to ovulate in the next 24-48 hours.
Like a pregnancy test strip, ovulation predictors have a control line and a test line. The control line shows that the test kit is working as expected, and enough urine has been absorbed to conduct the test. So if the test line is darker, it means you got a positive result and have a higher chance of getting pregnant.
When is the best time to start testing?
After taking ovulation tests, the key to getting positive results is understanding your menstrual cycle. Start by determining the length of your menstrual cycle, which starts on the first day of your menstrual bleeding, to the last day before the next period starts. Reflecting over the last few months will help you know your cycle length and determine if you have a regular or irregular menstrual cycle. Ovulation usually occurs on the 14th day of your cycle, so you should start testing a few days before this date to avoid missing the LH surge.
When is the best time to take the ovulation test?
One mistake women make is assuming they can use the first-morning urine, which is recommended for pregnancy but not for an ovulation test. This can easily make you miss the LH surge, not identifying the fertile window.
The best time to start collecting urine samples for ovulation tests is between 10 a.m. and 8:10 p.m. Studies have shown that the levels of luteinizing hormone in most women are highest during this time of the day. If you test using your first urine in the morning, you will miss the LH surge since the hormone is deficient in the morning, whether you are ovulating or not.
How to conduct the ovulation test
One unique thing you will notice with our ovulation strip tests is that they are simple and easy to use. Here are the basic steps you should follow to get reliable results.
- Determine the best time of the day to do the test – you can even test twice a day.
- Use a urine collection cup or a dry and clean container to collect your urine sample.
- Get an ovulation test strip and open the sealed pouch to remove the strip. Avoid unwrapping the strip too early. We recommend that you remove it when you are ready to start testing.
- Hold the test strip with the arrows pointing towards the urine sample and gently place it into the urine sample for 15 seconds. Make sure the urine does not go above the indicated mark level line.
- Once the tip has absorbed enough urine, you can remove it and place it on a dry flat surface so the colour bands can appear.
Depending on the luteinizing hormone concentration in your urine specimen, you may observe a positive result within a minute. However, if the results appear to be negative, you will have to wait for 10 minutes to complete the reaction. Results obtained after 10 minutes should be considered invalid, so it’s recommended that you use a timer to get reliable results. We provided detailed ovulation test instructions with every order that covers all frequently asked questions about when to use an LH test, what a faint line on an ovulation test means, and more.
How to read the ovulation test results
Our affordable ovulation strip tests come with two lines – the test and the control line. After taking every test, the control line needs to be visible to confirm that the strip is working as expected. If you get two coloured lines on the test strip, then it means your result is positive. Ideally, the test line must appear darker than the control line.
Frequently asked questions
Why is it advisable to use an ovulation strip test with 25mIU/mL sensitivity?
If you are a young and healthy woman, your body undergoes a natural ovulation cycle each month. The primary purpose of this process is to prepare your body for fertilization every month and ensure the body is ready to accommodate a baby if your egg is fertilized and implanted successfully.
This process can be divided into four phases: follicular phase – 2.4 to 12.6 mIU/ml, ovulation phase -14 to 95.6 mIU/ml, luteal phase -1 to 11.4 mIU/ml, and postmenopausal – 7.7 – 58.5 mIU/ml. Before the ovulation phase starts, your body will release large amounts of luteinizing hormone. This hormone is always present, but the levels spike in the middle of the cycle, which causes the ovary to release the egg. This process is known as ovulation. If you have an LH surge, the chances are that ovulation will likely occur within the next 1 to 2 days.
What does a negative ovulation test result mean?
Most women tend to panic when they keep getting no LH surge results after taking an ovulation test, but this should not be the case. Many reasons could be causing this, and some of them are listed below:
- Your urine sample is too diluted, so you need to restrict your fluid intake for a few hours before taking a urine sample.
- The LH surge is too mild to be detected by the test strips you are using. A low LH peak of 2.5 fold the median value of baseline.
- The ovulation predictor kits did not absorb enough urine to complete the test successfully.
- You may be testing during the wrong time of the day. Testing in the early to mid-afternoon is recommended because the levels of LH hormone are higher.
- You may be testing during the wrong time of the cycle, and this is particularly common for women who don’t have regular menstrual cycles.
- The ovulation test strip you are using is out-of-date or faulty.
- You are misusing the ovulation predictor kit.
What does having a prolonged LH surge mean?
Generally, the LH surge takes about 2 to 3 days if it is regular. If you notice that your LH surge takes longer than three days, then there could be a problem. Some of the common causes of a prolonged LH surge include PCOS, anovulation, early pregnancy, and menopause. Consider consulting your healthcare provider to know the actual cause of the problem and get proper treatment if necessary.
