Ovulation test kit - what does it really mean?

Good day to everyone.  I’d like to put up a question what you think about sexual intercourse?

Mostly the answer, I get is making love. Yes, of course, I do agree with that. However, there are certain problems that both men and women face during the sexual intercourse. The inconvenience of the position, unsatisfactory with the partner, premature ejaculation, perception of having sex between partners, setting preconceived notions on sex, sex after the consumption of alcohol etc., These are some evidential issue faced by the couples, which have even lead to divorce.

Therefore, it’s must to understand each other and having a free talk about the expectation of having sexual intercourse with the partner. A successful, cooperative, understanding, lively sex is likely to have the satisfaction and eventually will lead to Pregnancy. And, to increase the chances of being pregnant  as you expect, the ovulation test kit helps you to give the best result.

 

About Ovulation Test Kit:

Ovulation kit is used to identify the most fertile time of your cycle where the chances for you to conceive is high.

Ovulation test kits, tests your urine for an increase (surge) in luteinising hormone (LH). This happens from one to two days before ovulation.

 A small amount of LH is always present in your blood and urine. But in the days before ovulation, the amount increases by about two to five times. The 12 hours to 36 hours between the beginning of the LH surge and the moment when your egg is released is the most fertile part of your cycle. This is when you are most likely to conceive.

To summarise on a whole, it tells you the time where the probability of conceiving is high.

 

When to start the test with the ovulation test kit?

First, you must determine the length of your menstrual cycle. This is the number of days from the first day of your menstrual bleeding to the day before your next bleeding begins again. Please refer to the chart below to determine when you should start testing. If your cycle is shorter than 21 days or longer than 38 days, consult your doctor. If you do not know 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.

 

Steps to be handled before using the ovulation test kit:

1. Do not use first morning urine samples as LH is synthesised in your body early in the morning. It will not show up in your urine until later in the day.

2. The best time to collect your urine is between 10am - 8pm.

3. Collect urine at about the same time each day.

4. Reduce liquid intake about 2 hours before collecting your urine as a diluted urine sample can prevent the test from detecting LH surge.

 

How to use ovulation kit at home?

This involves on the usage of the ovulation Strip test for testing the ovulation and the steps are as follows:

1. Bring the test pouch to room temperature (18-30°C). To begin testing, open the sealed pouch by tearing along the notch. Remove the test from the pouch.

2. Immerse the strip into the urine with the arrow end pointing towards the urine. Do not immerse past the "Mark" line. Take the strip out after 20seconds and lay the strip flat on a clean, dry, non-absorbent surface (e.g., mouth of the urine container).

3. Wait for colored bands to appear. Depending on the concentration of LH in the test specimen, positive results may be observed in as short as 40 seconds. However, to confirm negative results, the complete reaction time (10 minutes) is required. Do not read results after 30 minutes.

How to know the result of after the test is being performed?

 

No LH Surge: Only one color band appears on the control region or the test band is present but lighter in color intensity than the control band. There is no LH surge even if two lines present - as long as test line is fainter than the control line the result is negative.

 

 

LH Surge: If two color bands are visible and the test band is equal to or darker than the control band, one will probably ovulate in the next 24-48 hours. If one wants to be pregnant, the best time to have intercourse is after 24 but before 48 hours.

 

 

Invalid - Uncertain Results: No visible bands in the control and test regions. Make sure to follow the above-specified instructions for optimum results.

 

 

Difference between the pregnancy kit and ovulation kit:

Pregnancy Kit is to check if you are pregnant or not; while ovulation kit is used to identify the most fertile time of your cycle where you conceive

 

Saftey measures for best result:

 1. For single in vitro diagnostic use only - use test only once for urine screening.

2. Do not use test kit beyond the expiration date.

3. Keep away from moisture, direct sunlight, and children.

Wishing you all a great day !!!
