An increasing number of women are using ovulation predictor kits to help determine when ovulation will likely occur. If you are thinking of using this method, you probably have questions about how an ovulation predictor kit works and what it can do for you.
Fast fact #1 -Ovulation predictor kits work by detecting an increase in Luteinizing Hormone (LH) produced by the pituitary gland that naturally occurs in the body just before ovulation. In order for the test to work, a woman must use the test kit for several days just before she expects her next period. To get the most out of these kits, you need to know how long your cycle is and on what day you should begin testing. If you do not already know this, you will want to track your period for at least two or three months so that you will know the right day to begin testing.
Fast fact #2 -The ovulation predictor kit will contain a number of test strips (usually five). Kits normally cost between fifteen and thirty dollars for a single month, which is why you will want to know the length of your cycle so you do not waste any strips. If you are planning to use ovulation predictor kits, you will want to search online to find kits that are often far less expensive. You will want to make sure that you are purchasing from a reputable site that is offering first quality, non-expired testing kits. If you are unsure, ask questions and read the return policy of the website before you purchase.
Fast fact #3 -To use the strip, you simply urinate on the strip, and then read the results using the included information. The best time to test is in the mid-afternoon, as the LH surge occurs in the morning and then filters into the urine over the next several hours. LH is present in the body most of the time, so a very faint result is not a positive test. You will want to wait until the test line is as dark as the reference line.
Fast fact #4 -It will probably take several days of testing to detect a surge in LH. Once you see a positive result, you will ovulate in the next twelve to forty-eight hours. A mature egg lives for about twenty-four hours in the body, so timing intercourse to allow conception is essential to getting pregnant.
Factoid #5 -While ovulation predictor kits can be very useful to women trying to conceive, keep in mind that they do have drawbacks. For some women, ovulation does not occur during every cycle despite the surge in LH detected by the OPK. Also, the ovulation predictor kit cannot detect any other health issues that may be preventing you from becoming pregnant.
Fast fact #6 -As with any other method, consult a doctor if you do not become pregnant after several months of trying. Also, certain medical conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome will produce a positive result all the time. If this happens, consult you’re your doctor. Despite these drawback, an ovulation predictor kit can be very helpful to women who are trying to conceive.
