About the Test

The Ovulation test is an at-home lateral flow test for the detection of the peak level of luteinising hormone (LH) in urine to aid in prediction the time of ovulation and peak fertility. It is during this fertile time that pregnancy is most likely to occur.

Ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovary. The egg then passes into the fallopian tube where it is ready to be fertilised. In order for pregnancy to occur, the egg must be fertilised by sperm within 24 hours after its release. Immediately prior to ovulation, the body produces a large amount of luteinizing hormone (LH) which triggers the release of a ripened egg from the ovary. This “LH surge” usually takes place in the middle of the menstrual cycle.

The test utilises a combination of antibodies, including a monoclonal LH antibody to selectively detect elevated levels of LH. The LH surge and ovulation may not occur in all menstrual cycles.

Instructions

When to start testing

The Ovulation test kit contains 5 tests, allowing you to test over several days to find your most fertile time. Calculate when to start testing using the “when to start testing chart” included in the kit.

1. First, determine your menstrual cycle length. Your menstrual cycle length is the number of days from the first day of your period to the last day before the next period starts.

2. Next, determine the days to count ahead after the period to start testing. Find the menstrual cycle length on the first row of the chart, and read the corresponding number in the second row. This is the number of days after your period to begin testing.

3. Use the sample calendar to determine which day you should begin testing. First morning urine should not be used when testing for LH. For best results, you should test around the same time each day. You should reduce your liquid intake approximately 2 hours prior to testing.

Procedure

1. Determine the day you will begin testing using the “when to start testing chart”. Bring the pouch to room temperature before opening it.

2. Remove the midstream test from the sealed pouch and use it within 1 hour.

3. Remove the cap and place it over the thumb grip.

4. Hold the midstream test by the capped thumb grip with the exposed absorbent tip pointing downwards directly into your urine stream for at least 10-15 seconds until it is thoroughly wet.

5. After removing the midstream test from your urine, immediately replace the cap over the absorbent tip. Lay the test on a flat surface with the result window facing upwards, then begin the timer.

6. As the test begins to work, you may notice a light coloured flow moving across the test and control window. Read the results at 3 minutes, if no result appears wait one more minute. Do not read the result after 10 minutes.

Reading the Results

Read the result at 3 minutes. If no result appears, wait one minute longer. Do not read the result after 10 minutes.

POSITIVE: Two coloured lines are visible, and the line in the test line region is the same as or darker than the line in the control line region. This indicates that you will probably ovulate in 24-36 hours.

NEGATIVE: Two coloured lines are visible, but the line in the test line region is lighter than the line in the control line region, or there is no line in the test line region. This indicates that no LH surge has been detected and daily testing should be continued.

INVALID: The result is invalid if no coloured line appears in the control line region, even if a line appears in the test line region. You should repeat the procedure with a new test.
