Ovulation Test Information:
Ovulation is the release of an egg from the ovary. The egg then passes into the fallopian tube where it is ready to be fertilised. A baby is conceived when the male sperm successfully fertilises the female egg. When a woman is about to ovulate, her body releases a large amount of a hormone called L.H. (Luteinizing Hormone). L.H. is always present in your urine but the levels increase (surge) around 12-16 days before your period is due, causing you to release an egg from the ovary.
An Ovulation (LH) Test Strip can detect the surge in luteinizing hormone (LH) in your urine and once this surge occurs a woman usually ovulates within 12-24 hours. By using ovulation tests you may predict impending ovulation. The test detects the sharp increase in LH concentration in your urine, the so called ”LH surge” which precedes ovulation. Conception is most likely to occur within 24-36 hours following the LH surge. By having regular intercourse in the lead up to ovulation you have a great chance of having a store of sperm present in the fallopian tubes ready to fertilise the released egg. By having intercourse when you get a positive ovulation test this increases your chances enormously of timing things correctly.
Each pouch contains one ovulation test. Each test contains a membrane with anti-LH antibodies and conjugates, in a stabilising matrix containing proteins and sodium azide.
Store below 30°C; do not freeze.
The Ovulation Test is for in vitro diagnostic use only. · Elevated concentrations of Human Chorionic Gonadtropin (HCG – the pregnancy hormone) interfere with LH testing. These tests will read positive if a woman is pregnant or if she has a pathologic condition causing higher HCG levels. · The Ovulation Test is not designed to prevent conception. As sperm can survive for 72 hours you might still become pregnant if you had intercourse before you detected your L.H. surge.
When to test:
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 again, count the first day of bleeding as day 1. Calculate what the usual length of your menstrual cycle has been over the last few months. Once you have worked out the length of your cycle refer to the chart in the photos to determine on which day of your menstrual cycle you should begin testing.
Example: If your cycle is normally 28 days, the cycle chart above indicates you should begin testing on Day 11. The calendar in the photos section shows you how to work out when day 11 is.
NOTE: If your cycle is shorter than 21 days or longer than 40 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, (I find late afternoon or evening is best as levels can be lower in the morning) until the LH surge has been detected. If you can refrain from drinking lots of fluids or urinating for a few hours before testing this will give more accurate results.
Once you have identified what day you should begin testing you should then begin to collect your urine on a daily basis. 1. 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. 2. The best time to collect your urine is between 11am – 8pm. Pick a regular time that suits you best. 3. 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 LH surge.
Before you begin:
1. Read the instructions thoroughly before you begin. 2. Do not open the foil pouch until you are ready to begin the test. 3. Make sure you have a watch, clock or timer ready. 4. Allow urine samples and test kit to reach room temperature before testing (approx 20 mins).
Important note: These tests are not midstream tests and the strip needs to be dipped into urine to work. If you urinate directly onto the test then not enough liquid may reach the control and test area of the test leaving it blank (no lines will appear). Please follow the instructions below carefully to gain a valid result.
1. Determine the day to begin testing. 2. Collect urine sample in a clean and dry container. 3. To begin testing, open the sealed pouch and remove the strip. Do not remove the strip until you are ready to begin testing. 4. With the arrows pointing downwards, dip the tip in the urine placing the test strip vertically (straight) into the sample, for at least 10 seconds. DO NOT allow the urine to go above the MARK level line. 5. Remove the strip from the urine and place on a clean, dry surface. 6. Wait for coloured bands to appear. The control line usually appears first. Depending on the concentration of LH in the urine specimen, positive results may be observed within 1 minute. However, to confirm negative results, the complete reaction time of 10 minutes is required. Results obtained after 30 minutes may be considered invalid.
After each test, you must decide if you are having a L.H. surge. To determine your result, you must compare the colour intensity of the test band to the control band. The control band is used to compare the test band against and also confirms that you have completed the test correctly.
Positive for L.H. surge: If two colour bands are visible and the test band is of almost equal, of equal, or of greater colour intensity (darker) than the control band, this is a positive result and a good indication that the L.H. surge is occurring. You should ovulate within the next 24-36 hours. Sexual intercourse is advised at any time after the first positive test.
Negative for L.H. surge: If two bands are visible but the test band is of a less intense colour (paler) than the control band or cannot be seen, this means the L.H. level is at or near its normal level and that the surge is not in progress. You should continue with daily testing.
Invalid result: If no control band appears within 5 minutes, the result is invalid. The test may still work as the control line only appears if a liquid (urine) reaches that area. You may try to re-dip the test tip back into the urine for another few seconds. A visible control line is needed in all cases to confirm a proper test result. If you do get unexpected results you should discuss them with your doctor.
Pregnancy Test Information:
These strip tests are at a sensitivity of 10miu and work to an accuracy level of 99%. They can be used up to 4 days before a missed period depending on when implantation has taken place (from 11 days post ovulation). These tests will detect HCG in your urine.
SAFETY: Please dispose of the test, silica pouch and empty package safely after use. Keep out of reach of children at all times. The silica pouch inside the test foil is present to keep the test free of moisture but is a potential choking hazard and may cause injury if ingested.
How to use.
HCG is produced following implantation of an embryo into the uterus. The HCG produced can be detected using a pregnancy test up to 4 days before a missed period (from 11dpo). Ideally however, the test should be used the day of a missed period to gain the clearest test result.
Collect a sample of your urine in a clean dry container.
Important note: These tests are not midstream tests and the test strip needs to be dipped into urine to work. If you urinate directly onto the test then not enough liquid will reach the control and test area of the test leaving it blank (no lines will appear). Please follow the instructions carefully to gain a valid result.
– Open the sealed foil pouch and remove the test holding the dark blue part of the test.
– Dip the white part of the test into the urine for 10-15 seconds (do not allow the urine to go above the MAX line on the test) making sure the arrows are pointing down and the test is held vertical. You should see the dye starting to appear in the test area and track up towards the top of the test.
– Remove the test strip and lie horizontally on a clean dry surface.
– A control line should appear to indicate the test has been used correctly.
Please safely dispose any used test after use and keep out of reach of children.
How to read the results.
Negative test result: A negative test can be confirmed after 5 minutes when the test is completed and there is no test line appearing on the test indicating that no HCG has been detected. If you are testing very early or you still suspect that you may be pregnant then repeat the test in 24 hours. An evaporation/shadow line may appear after several hours once the test has been left out to dry and this should not be read as a positive test.
Positive test result: If both a control line and test line appears within 5 minutes of commencing the test then this indicates HCG is present in your urine and you are likely to be pregnant. If you are using a test before a missed period and are pregnant then the test line will take a few minutes to appear and will be fainter than the control line. If you have missed your period and are pregnant then the test line will appear sooner and will be darker and may even be as dark as the control line.
Invalid result: If no lines appear on the test within 5 minutes or if the control line does not appear but a test line does this indicates an invalid result. The test may still work as the control line only appears if a liquid (urine) reaches that area. You may try to re-dip the test tip back into the urine for another few seconds. A clear control line is needed to confirm a valid test result.
Reasons for an invalid Test Result:
– The test was not held in the urine long enough.
– Peeing directly on the test strip rather than dipping it in the urine (These tests are not mid stream tests).
– Reading the results too soon or after 5 minutes.
Each pack contains:
1. One Pregnancy Strip Test.
2. Silica pouch (Dispose safely – Do not consume – Keep out of reach of children and avoid contact with skin).
