Most woman in the world will ovulate almost exactly 14 days BEFORE she starts her period – not the other way round!! That’s fine for women with regular cycles of 26-30 days between each period but the trouble is a lot of women have irregular periods or other conditions such as PCOS, a lazy ovary, previous miscarriages, endometriosis, currently breast feeding etc.
So what exactly happens is this:-
In any one cycle and on average, 80% of women will ovulate normally but around 11% of women will not ovulate at all and another 9% will ovulate twice or more.
Now the “average” woman will have an LH (the hormone that triggers ovulation) level of between 5-20mIU in her system. When the surge occurs the basal level rises to approximately 50-200mIU and at this level ovulation occurs and the egg is released from the ovary. This means that for most women a 20mIU High ovulation sensitivity test would be perfect.
But how will you know if they are not right for you? I hate to say this but it is trial and error. Firstly, if there is a problem and you don’t seem to be ovulating normally – DON’T WORRY – it is not unusual. The reason is usually simple and is down to the fact that each woman is individual and can have different results from ovulation tests.
A women who is suffering from PCOS and this can sometimes (NOT always) cause the LH level to be consistently at a higher level than “normal”. This woman will appear to get a positive result with our 20mIU tests over several days and she is therefore not certain when she is ovulating. In this case we would recommend she purchase the lower sensitivity 40mIU ovulation tests which will better pinpoint the LH surge.
