The One Step Ovulation Test is an immunochromatographic in-vitro assay for the qualitative and semi-quantitative determination of the human luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine to predict the time of ovulation in women. The test detects the sharp increase in LH concentration in urine, the so called “LH surge” which precedes ovulation. Conception is most likely to occur within 36 hours following the LH surge.
Once you have identified what day you should begin testing you should then begin to collect your urine on a daily basis.
BEFORE YOU BEGIN:
INTERPRETATION OF RESULTS:
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 or 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 anytime 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 and should be ignored. A visible control line is needed in all cases to confirm a proper test result. Repeat test with a new test kit.
