Why Yes Baby?
Approximately 70% of couples trying to conceive experience vaginal dryness, thus making sexual intercourse painful. All traditional, glycerine based lubricants damage sperm. So couples using glycerine-based lubricants, such as KY Jelly, may inadvertently prevent conception rather than enabling it. The two main factors that damage sperm are pH and osmolality – the osmolality of glycerine-based lubricants is too high for sperm and often the pH is too low. Vaginal pH is typically acidic, and therefore hostile to sperm, except during ovulation (the most fertile period).
Sperm friendly lubricants match semen pH (slightly alkaline) and osmolality, to ensure sperm longevity. Critically, when vaginal pH is elevated above its typical protective acidity the likelihood of infection such as bacterial vaginosis or Thrush is significantly increased. Incidence of bacterial vaginosis is linked to various reproductive and pregnancy related events including early pregnancy loss, preterm labour and preterm delivery. Therefore, when trying to conceive it is vitally important vaginal health is maintained, to give a fertilised egg the best possible chance of developing to full term.
So the use of just a sperm friendly lubricant (such as Pre-Seed or Conceive Plus) could challenge healthy vaginal pH. Uniquely Yes Baby has the solution by also providing the vagina friendly moisturising lubricant to restore the protective acidic vaginal pH after ovulation, thus reducing the likelihood of infection. The pack also contains 5 high sensitivity ovulation strips to enable you to pinpoint ovulation and thus use the correct lubricant at the correct time. These ovulation tests are the same as those used by the NHS:

How does a pregnancy test work?
A pregnancy test measures the presence of the hormone Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (HCG) in your urine. HCG is produced in the placenta shortly after the embryo attaches to the uterine lining. This hormone then builds up rapidly in your body in the days following successful conception.
When should I do the test?
The test can be taken at any time of the day. However, we do recommend that you test first thing in the morning when your urine is most concentrated. Do not drink large amounts of fluid in an attempt to increase the volume of urine as this may dilute the urine making HCG more difficult to detect.
What does the test result look like?
How long will it take before I can read the result?
You can read the results in under 5 minutes and a positive result can often be seen in under 30 seconds. However, the full reaction time of 10 minutes is required to confirm a negative result.
What is the difference between home tests and those done by a doctor?
Many doctors and clinics use our pregnancy tests anyway, in which case they are exactly the same. Occasionally, some women may be given a blood test, but they are not very different from our pregnancy tests either as both types look for the presence of HCG in your body.
What should I do with my results?
If your pregnancy test results are positive, you should consult your doctor to discuss your pregnancy and what steps and precautions should be taken next. In addition, if your test is negative and you still suspect you may be pregnant, you may want to confirm your test results with another pregnancy test a few days later.
If I see 2 lines but one is fainter than the other is this a positive result?
Yes, if 2 lines appear you are pregnant no matter how faint the lines appear.
Can anything affect the results of these tests?
Drinking alcohol, painkillers, oral contraceptives, antibiotics and other common drugs will not affect the result of these tests. Only medicines that contain HCG can produce a false positive result. If you are unsure about your result or your period has still not arrived you should see your doctor for advice.
What are 10mIU Ultra Early pregnancy tests and what does it all mean?
It is unfortunate that some eBay sellers claim their tests are ultra early and 10mIU when they are not. Basically if the outer foil doesn’t indicate 10mIU then they are NOT the Ultra Early highest sensitivity pregnancy tests. We send out the Ultra Early 10mIU tests as a standard. The number given after the Lot number (-10 or -25) indicates the sensitivity of our tests. Some women on hormone treatments containing HCG may require tests with the lower 25mIU sensitivity and for those women we will happily send you 25mIU sensitivity tests – just let us know in the “add message”box at checkout.
A 10mIU pregnancy test will show a faint line at a level of 10mIU of HCG (the hormone that is produced in large amounts when you are pregnant). A normal non-pregnant woman is at a level of 5mIU or less and from the first day of becoming pregnant the level of HCG doubles every other day for the first 3 months until the level is at several hundred thousand. The average woman could, therefore, show a faint line only 2 days after conception but if the level started at 1mIU then it would be several days after conception that the line would show. Accordingly it can vary from person to person and the actual day of conception in the cycle can vary slightly depending on the day the egg was released from the ovary, the day it was fertilized and the day the egg implanted. Normally we would say that these tests would be certain to show a positive result 6 days after conception. On the 7th day the line would be much darker and so on. Having said that we have had women say they showed positive after only 2 days!! The risk of testing too early being that the test could be a ‘chemical pregnancy’ as the fertilized egg may fail and turn out to be just a heavier period than normal. Experts estimate that up to 50% of all pregnancies end in a miscarriage and many of these manifest themselves as slightly later or heavier periods.
A pregnancy begins with conception. A child is conceived when the male sperm successfully fertilises the female egg. Successful fertilisation is most likely during a 24-hour period following the LH surge. Since this window is usually only open once a month and for a short period of time, being able to predict the LH surge is very helpful when trying to become pregnant. We have selected these ovulation tests for their price, accuracy and reliability. These tests look for the presence of LH in urine.
When a woman is about to ovulate, her body releases a large amount of a hormone called LH (Luteinising Hormone). LH is always present in your urine but the levels increase (surge) in the middle of your cycle, causing you to release an egg from the ovary. This process is called ovulation. If the LH surge is present, ovulation is likely to occur in the next 12 to 36 hours. Our ovulation tests detect the LH surge by measuring the level of LH in urine.
Once ovulation has taken place the level of Progesterone increases and this causes the basal body temperature to rise.
What about the sensitivity of ovulation tests and why might I need a different sensitivity?
Ok, we are going to dispel a few old wivesâ™ tales here and give you some facts:-
Firstly, virtually every woman in the world will ovulate almost exactly 14 days BEFORE she starts her period â” 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. The latter explains a lot of those unwanted pregnancies by Roman Catholics trusting to the “rhythm method”to prevent conception!!
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 the 20mIU High ovulation sensitivity tests that we sell are 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. Here is just 1 example.
We have a lady 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 (30 or even 40mIU) ovulation tests which will better pinpoint the LH surge.
So what do you recommend for a newcomer to all this?
Try the 20mIU High sensitivity ovulation tests and if you find any problems in pinpointing when you are ovulating then try one of the lower sensitivity tests and that should solve the problem 🙂
How dark does the test line need to be to show I am ovulating normally and what if I get no lines in the test window?
Essentially if you get no lines at all in the test window then you either haven’t ovulated yet or even this test is not sensitive enough to pick up the LH surge. At this Ultra Early sensitivity level if you get no test lines followed by faint lines for a couple of days which then fade back to no lines then that is the perfect indication that you have ovulated normally during those days, especially if 14-16 days after the faint lines you started your period. If, however, you get no lines at all in the test window with this highest sensitivity 20mIU test for 2 months then you should contact us for advice as we may be able to help.

Clomid/Serophene are brand names for a drug known as Clomiphene citrate – commonly referred to as the “fertility pill”. Letrozole is a very similar drug and works in exactly the same way. They are the most popular and most prescribed drugs for women who are not ovulating at all, have PCOS or suffer from irregular periods. They have proved very successful with 60-80% of women ovulating normally when taking the drugs and with 50% of those on these drugs going on to get pregnant. They have few side effects and these are generally minor – your doctor can tell you more.All these drugs are taken for 5 days (days 3-7 or 5-9 of your cycle) and are essentially a boost to your fertility hormones including LH. For this reason, if you are on any of these drugs, you should start to use these highest sensitivity (20mIU) ovulation tests 3 days after finishing the drugs i.e. on day 10 or day 12 onwards as before this you could get a false result.
