How do ovulation prediction kits work?

Ovulation predictor kits work by detecting elevated levels of luteinizing hormone (LH) that is in your urine. LH is the hormone that rises just before you ovulate. At-home ovulation predictor kits recognize this surge in hormones, and helps you to recognize the time that you are going to ovulate.

These tests are a lot like over the counter home pregnancy tests in the way that you use them. They can be up to 99 percent effective in detecting LH in the body. They are usually around $10 each at your local drugstore.

Who should use them?

Women who are trying to get pregnant are obviously a good choice for using these kits. They can be a big help in the confusing process of charting and tracking ovulation cycles. The ovulation prediction kits are also helpful to women who need to figure out if they are ovulating at all.

It is important to test more than once per day, since the surge of LH hormone happens quickly, and you don’t want to miss it. You also should take the test at the same time each day, and make sure not to use the first morning urine.

What happens if you get a positive result?

If you get a positive result, it means that your body has had a surge of LH. Congratulations, you should be ovulating within 36 hours!!! Once you get a positive test, there is no need to retest. And ladies, you know what that means! Once you get a positive result, there is no need for you to be reading this article anymore. Get off of the computer, and get busy! Time’s a wastin’!
