LH Ovulation (Urine) Dipstick Test
(Pack of 5 Dipstick Tests)
The One Step LH Urine Ovulation Test is fast and easy to use. It is a qualitative test that can predict when there is a LH (luteinizing hormone) surge, and in turn, when you are likely to ovulate.
WHEN TO BEGIN TESTING
First, you must determine the length of your menstrual cycle. This is the number of days from the first day of your menstrual bleeding to the day before your next bleeding begins. Please refer to the chart to determine when you should start testing. If your cycle is shorter than 21 days or longer than 38 days, consult your doctor. If you do not know your cycle length, you may begin the test 11 days after your first period since the average cycle length is 28 days. Perform 1 test each day over a 5 day period, or until the LH surge has been detected.
Do not use first morning urine samples as LH is synthesized in your body early in the morning. It will not show up in your urine until later in the day.
The best time to collect your urine is between 10am and 8pm.
Collect urine at about the same time each day.
Reduce liquid intake about 2 hours before collecting your urine as a diluted urine sample can prevent the test from detecting the LH surge.
Allow the sealed LH test pouch, urine sample, and control solution to reach room temperature (18-30°C).
Remove the LH test strip from the sealed pouch.
Immerse the strip into the urine with the arrow pointing towards the urine. Do not immerse past the MAX marker line. Take the strip out after 5 seconds and lay the strip on a clean, dry non-absorbant surface.
Wait for colored bands to appear. Depending on the concentration of LH in the test specimen, positive results may be observed in as little as 40 seconds. However, to confirm negative results, the complete reaction time of 10 minutes is required. Do not read results after more than 30 minutes
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS
No LH Surge: Only one color band appears on the control (C) region or the test (T) band appears but is lighter than the control band. This means there is no LH surge.
LH Surge: Two color bands are visible, and the test (T) band is equal to or darker than the control (C) band. This means that one will probably ovulate in the next 24-48 hours. If trying to get pregnant, the best time to have intercourse is after 24 but before 48 hours.
Invalid: No visible band at all. Repeat with a new test kit.
STORAGE AND STABILITY
The test kit can be stored at temperatures between 4 to 30 °C in the sealed pouch to the date of expiration. The test kit should be kept away from direct sunlight, moisture and heat.
For in vitro diagnostic use only.
Do not use test kit beyond expiry date.
The test device should not be reused.
