How does a home ovulation test work?
When a woman is about to ovulate, her body releases a large amount of a hormone called L.H. (Luteinising Hormone). L.H. is always present in your urine but the levels increase (surge) in the middle of your cycle, causing you to release an egg from the ovary. This process is called ovulation. If the L.H. surge is present, ovulation is likely to occur in the next 24 to 36 hours.
These ovulation tests detect the L.H. surge by measuring the amount of L.H. in urine.
When should I do the test?
Used each day, on the days around the time when the LH surge is expected, Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test gives a 'blank circle' on the digital display to show when you haven't detected your LH surge and a 'smiley face' to show that you have detected your LH surge. The day when you see the 'smiley face' and the following day are your 2 most fertile days.
The rest is up to you and your partner.
Why should I avoid testing first thing in the morning?
You should avoid testing your urine first thing in the morning as LH is synthesized in your body early in the morning. It will not show up in your urine until later in the day.
How long will it take before I can read the result?
The results of each test can be read in just 3 minutes.
What happens if after using the tests provided I have still not detected my L.H. surge?
Most women with regular cycles will detect their L.H. Surge in 5 days or under. However, if you have irregular cycles you may need to test for longer and may require additional ovulation tests to detect your L.H. Surge
I have recently come off the contraceptive pill. Will this affect my result?
As the pill disrupts your natural hormone balance it may take a few months for your periods to return to normal. You may want to wait until you have had 2 normal periods before starting to use this ovulation test. Please be aware that pregnancy and breast feeding could affect the results of this test.
Will alcohol or other common medications affect the results of this test?
No, but you should consult your doctor if you are taking any hormonal treatments.
Can I use the ovulation test for contraception?
No, the test is not designed to prevent conception. As sperm can survive for 72 hours you might still become pregnant if you had intercourse before you detected your L.H. Surge
I had a positive result for the L.H. surge and had sexual intercourse during this period but I have still not become pregnant.
There are many factors that can affect your fertility. It can take many healthy couples months to achieve pregnancy. You may need to use these tests for a few months before pregnancy occurs. If after 6 months of trying you have still not become pregnant, you should visit your doctor for advice.
