Ovulation test is an available product at any pharmacy without a prescription. The way it works is a bit like a pregnancy test.

However, it serves other purposes - it allows you to designate ovulation date, i.e. the moment of ovulation - the best time to conceive a child. Therefore, it serves especially couples applying for a baby.

Maybe also support the use of contraception methods or familiarize women with the topic of how the female body functions. In addition, knowing the term ovulation also allows set a date for menstruation - this occurs 14 days after ovulation (margin - 12-18 days after ovulation).

What is an ovulation test?

Ovulation test is qualitative test that allows you to predict when ovulation will occur with high probability. It assesses quickly and simply amount of luteinizing hormone (LH), there is a sudden increase in its number by mid-monthly cycle.

After the hormone is released and detected in the urine of a woman within 24-48 hours ovulation occurs. Just during this period getting pregnant is most likely.

What does an ovulation test look like?

Ovulation test is test strip. Most often sold in the amount of several pieces in one package. After tearing the packaging, we see a thin strip, one end of which is highlighted in color (for which we grab when inserting the strip into the container with urine), at the other end there is an area that should be inserted into the container. There is also a "max" line on the strip, beyond which you should not immerse the strip during the test.

When to do an ovulation test?

Ovulation test is recommended to be performed in middle of the cycle counted from the first day of menstrual bleeding. For example, if a woman's cycle lasts 21 days, you should start the test on day 6, if 25 days on the 8th day, if 27 days on the 10th day, and if 28 days on the 11th day, 30 days - on the 11th day, 31 days - on the 14th day, etc.

Ovulation test interpretation of results

How to perform an ovulation test?

Urine is collected between 10 and 20.00 in a clean and dry container. It is very important that this is NOT the first urine after waking up. If we do the test for several days, it is worth collecting urine at more at the same time. It is worth limiting the amount of fluid 2 hours before urinating, especially in the summer when you drink more.

Take the test gently from the sachet, grasp the upper part without touching the test site. We immerse the strip in a container with urine, but not above the MAX line. After 5 seconds, we remove the strip and lay it on a flat, dry and clean surface. During this time, we can observe the movement of urine on the strip and the appearance of lines. A positive result is usually seen quickly - in 40 seconds. However, the manufacturer recommends waiting 10 minutes to confirm a negative result. However, we do not take into account the result after 10 minutes, because it can be wrong.

Ovulation test - how to interpret the results?

Negative result - when only the control line or control and test line appears, but the latter is brighter.

Positive result - when two lines of one color appear or when the test line is darker than the control line. If we receive such a result, it can be said with great probability that ovulation will occur within 24-48 hours.

The result is invalid - when no line appears on the test.

Ovulation test reviews

Performing an ovulation test is very simple, quick and interpretation of the results is not problematic. We will receive the test for 15-20 zlotys in every pharmacy (about 5 pieces in the package).

The ovulation test is recommended for people unsuccessfully applying for a baby, for women who for various reasons are unable to assess their phase of cycle and for those who have irregular periods and ovulation occurs on unusual days - e.g. just after menstruation, before fertile mucus appears.
