ClinicalGuard® ovulation test strips detect LH (luteinizing hormone) at levels of 25mIU/mL or above (this is a standard test sensitivity and suitable for most people).
What are ovulation tests used for?
In short, ovulation tests are used to predict when ovulation will occur (ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovaries). It is at this time of your cycle that your chances of getting pregnant are greatest.
- Test strips have a sensitivity of 25 mIU, or 25 ng/L
- Test strips are 2.5mm wide
- FDA approved
Instructions for use:
- Make sure the test strip and urine are both at room temperature.
- Remove the test strip and desiccant from the foil pouch (discard the desiccant as its only use is to keep the test strip dry while in storage).
- Immerse the test strip into the urine with the arrow on the strip pointing downwards. Do NOT immerse past the MAX line (otherwise the test will not be successful).
- Remove the strip after 5 seconds and lay on a clean, dry, non-absorbent and flat surface.
- Wait 5 minutes and then read the results.
How to read the results:
No LH surge: Only one colour band appears on the control region, or the test band appears but is lighter than the control band. This means there is no LH surge.
LH Surge: If two colour bands are visible, and the test band is equal to or darker than the control band, you will probably ovulate within the next 24-48 hours. If you are trying to get pregnant, you should have intercourse frequently over the next 48 hours.
