HOW DOES AN
OVULATION TEST WORK? Our Suresign Ovulation Midstream
Test works by detecting the amount of Luteinising Hormone (LH) in
urine. Luteinising Hormone is associated with ovulation as it is
the sudden release of the hormone from the pituitary gland that
triggers ovulation to occur. The surge in LH takes place
approximately 24 to 36 hours before ovulation and is a positive
indication of the best time to conceive. The Suresign Ovulation
Test is an accurate kit for home ovulation testing.
WHEN SHOULD YOU
USE AN OVULATION TEST? How to determine menstrual cycle
length Determine the length of your
menstrual cycle by counting the number of days from the first day of
your period (menstrual bleeding) to the last day before your next
period starts. How to calculate
when to start testing Using the calculator below, find
the day to start testing. The first day of menstrual bleeding is
day one, then count forward the number of days to determine what day to
Example Menstrual cycle length = 28 days Start test on day = 11 Bleeding started = 05 January Start testing = 15 January
HOW TO USE AN
OVULATION TEST? 1.
Open the sealed pouch and remove the test. 2.
Remove the Cap 3.
Holding the test by the thumb grip, point the tip down so that the
absorbent tip is in the urine stream, and keep it there for about
2-3 seconds. Ensure that the urine does not come into contact
with the Result window. 4.
Replace the lid and place on a dry, flat surface with the results
window upwards. 5.
Wait for 10 minutes before reading the test but do not read the result
after 15 minutes.
HOW TO READ THE
OVULATION TEST RESULT
Positive Two distinct coloured lines are
visible, and the Test Line (T) is the same as or darker than the
Control Line (C). This indicates that the urine sample has been taken
within 24-36 hours of the LH surge. Negative Two coloured lines are visible, but
the Test Line (T) is lighter than the Control Line (C), or there is no
Test Line (T). This indicates that the LH surge has not been detected.
You should continue daily testing. Invalid Control line fails to appear.
The result is invalid if no coloured Control Line (C) appears, even if
a Test Line (T) appears. Insufficient volume of urine or incorrect
procedure is the most likely reason for an invalid result. You should
repeat with a new test.
