Often many women face problems in conceiving and getting pregnant. To avoid this problem it is very important for a woman to have knowledge about her most fertile days. Strangely, only four days in a month are the most fertile days during which the woman can conceive easily. These four days are the 12th day after your menstrual cycle to the 16th day.
It is not easy to know about your ovulation period. This is why there are many kits available that help you in knowing the time of your ovulation. Such kits are called Ovulation Prediction Kit. An ovulation predictor kit consists of some sticks; they are similar to the ones which you get in the pregnancy detection kits. Ovulation prediction kits detect LH (Luteinizing Hormone) in your urine. If it detects a considerable amount of LH then it means that it is your most fertile period. The kits are of two types:
An ovulation predictor kit consists of two types of strip, a midstream strip and a test strip. While a test strip has to be dipped inside your urine contained in a box, the midstream test strip has to be placed in the flow of your urine. You will also get a control band and a result band which will have to be compared to each other to know the results. After the urine test has been done the results on the strip appear within 5 to 10 seconds and then the color on the control band has to be matched to that on the result band. The darker the result on the control band, the closer you are to your ovulation period.
Ovulation Prediction kits can be used in the following cases:
Using these predictor kits is not harmful and gives quite accurate results yet you should consult a doctor if you are on drugs containing high amount of LH (Luteinizing Hormone) as it affects the test. The salivary tests are not as accurate as the urine test and thus cannot be taken as the only result. On the other hand the urine tests though are very accurate yet they too have certain shortcomings. Therefore, it is recommended that you consult a doctor to be on a safer side.
