One Step Ovulation / Pregnancy Test
(10 x Urine Test Strips)
How does a home Ovulation or Pregnancy test work ?
Ovulation tests detect the LH surge by measuring the level of LH in urine.
When a woman is about to ovulate, her body releases a large amount of a hormone called LH (Luteinising Hormone). LH 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 LH surge is present, ovulation is likely to occur in the next 12 to 36 hours. Once ovulation has taken place the level of Progesterone increases and this causes the basal body temperature to rise.
A pregnancy test measures the presence of the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) in your urine. HCG is produced in the placenta shortly after the embryo attaches to the uterine lining. This hormone then builds up rapidly in your body in the days following successful conception.
When should I do the test?
Pregnancy Test can be taken at any time of the day. However, we do recommend that you test first thing in the morning when your urine is most concentrated. Do not drink large amounts of fluid in an attempt to increase the volume of urine as this may dilute the urine making HCG more difficult to detect.
For Ovulation Test, 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?
A positive result can often be read in under 30 seconds but to confirm a negative result (no test line or the test line is much fainter than the control line) you should wait the full 10 minutes.
Ovulation usually follows the start of the LH surge within 24-36 hours. This is the time when you are at your most fertile, therefore you should have intercourse when your ovulation test shows postive results.
What is the difference between home tests and those done by a doctor?
Many doctors and clinics use our pregnancy tests anyway, in which case they are exactly the same. Occasionally, some women may be given a blood test, but they are not very different from our pregnancy tests either as both types look for the presence of HCG in your body.

(Pregnancy Test) If I see 2 lines but one is fainter than the other is this a positive result?
Yes, if 2 lines appear you are pregnant no matter how faint the lines appear. Our Highest Sensitivity 10mIU tests have been designed to identify very early when you are pregnant and the test line will be fainter than the control line until you have been pregnant for about 4 weeks by which time the test line will be as dark or darker than the control line. This ensures our tests do not give false positives which is very important when you want to know if you are pregnant or not.
(Ovulation Test) How dark does the test line need to be to show I am ovulating normally and what if I get no lines in the test window?
Essentially if you get no lines at all in the test window then you either haven't ovulated yet or even this test is not sensitive enough to pick up the LH surge. With this Highest Sensitivity 20mIU test strip if you get no test lines followed by faint lines for a couple of days which then fade back to no lines then that is the perfect indication that you have ovulated normally during those days, especially if 14-16 days after the faint lines you started your period.
