What is ovulation?
Ovulation is a part of a woman’s menstrual cycle when an egg is released from the ovary into the fallopian tube. Ovulation usually happens in the middle of a woman's menstrual cycle from, between 13 to 15 days before your period. After an egg is mature, your body releases a surge of luteinising hormone (LH) and releases an egg which has a limited time of about 12 to 24 hours to be fertilised by sperm. However, keep in mind sperm can stay inside a woman's body for up to five days. If the egg is not fertilised within the short window, the corpus luteum, a follicle that is vital for conception to take place, will begin to degrade which causes your hormone levels to drop which eventually triggers your period. Whereas, if the egg is fertilised, the corpus luteum supplies enough progesterone for a woman to get pregnant.
Our ovulation test is a simple at home test that only requires a sample of your urine which will be able to reveal the peak level of luteinising hormone. This hormone will be able to predict when you are most likely to be fertile. By detecting a surge in LH, these results will provide you more guidance of when the best time is to conceive.
Make sure to read all the information in the package before performing the test.
Do not use the test after the expiration date.
Store in a cool, dry area at 2C-30C. Do not freeze.
Keep out of reach of children.
Do not use if any of the components are damaged or broken.
Do not open the packaging of the test unless you are taking the test.
Sample collection and preparation
For best results, collect urine samples about the same time each day.
Reduce your liquid intake 2 hours before urine collection
Make sure to record the date, cycle day and time of urine collection. Refer to the Test results chart on the leaflet.
When to start testing?
This kit contains 5 tests, allowing you to test over several days to find your most fertile time.
First, determine your menstrual cycle length. Your menstrual cycle length is the number of days from the first day of your period (menstrual bleeding) to the last day before the next period starts.
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 below, and read the corresponding number in the second row. This Is the number of days after your period to begin testing.
See the example and sample calendar below 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.

Determine the day you will begin testing using the “when to start testing chart”.
Remove the midstream test from the sealed pouch and use it within one hour.
Remove the cap and place it over the thumb grip.
Hold the midstream test by the capped thumb grip with the exposed absorbent tip pointing downward directly into your urine stream for at least 15 seconds until it is thoroughly wet 15 seconds.
After removing the midstream test from your urine, immediately replace the cap over the absorbent tip, lay the midstream test on a flat surface with the result window facing upwards, and then begin timing.
As the test begins to work, you may notice a light coloured flow moving across the result window. Read the result in 3 minutes. If no result appears, wait one minute longer. Do not read the result after 10 minutes.
Reading the results
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
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.
The result is invalid if no coloured line appears in the control line region, even if a line appears in the test line region.
No results, take the test again.
