Either if you are trying to get pregnant or prevent pregnancy, Ovulation Tests strips are very useful to find your fertile days. These tests help you predict the time of ovulation and peak fertility, unlike temperature charting that tells when you have ovulated. Each month your body increases the production of luteinizing hormone (LH) halfway through the cycle which causes the releasing of an egg (ovulation). When the test shows a positive result, it means that ovulation will be happening in the next three days. Pregnancy is technically only possible during the five days before ovulation through to the day of ovulation.
The tests have two chemical pads, one to show qualitatively the LH present in your urine and a control line to show if the test worked properly. This control line also gives the baseline color to interpret the test results. If the test line is the same intensity or a darker shade than the test control band, it means that you will ovulate within the next three days. When the test line is a lighter shade than the other line, it means that your body has not released its surge of LH.
From 10am to early evening. This is because LH is synthesized in your body early in the morning and appears in your urine throughout the day.
In order to optimize results accuracy, yes, test at the same time each day. It is also recommended to reduce your liquid intake around 2 hours before testing as a diluted urine sample can hinder detection of the LH surge.
It is recommended to time intercourse the day of the LH surge as well as following three days after, to increase the chance of conceiving.
A bbt/basal body thermal shift is a very clear sign you’ve ovulated. If you bbt chart daily, you’ll be able to tell when the egg was released based on an increase in body temperature. However, it will become measurable the day after you ovulate. The ovulation cramping or midcycle pains (mittelschmerz) that some women feel, can signal the actual release of the egg.The abundance of fertile quality cervical mucus is another symptom, and it occurs just prior to your fertile window. Once you ovulate, rising levels of progesterone and decreasing estrogens will result in less cervical mucus, and the quality of mucus will deteriorate, becoming less fertile (sticky, opaque, white/yellowish, hold its shape). Finally, the location of the cervix can tell you if ovulation is near. As you approach ovulation, your cervix becomes soft, high, open and wet. After ovulation these signs reverse, and your cervix becomes firm, low, closed and dry.
