Ovulation is the process that leads to the release of ovum from the ovary. This ovum travels along the fallopian tube and waits for the sperm to form a zygote. If the sperm fuses with the egg, then it would get implanted in the uterus failure of which would lead to the excretion of the ovum during the menses. This ovulation occurs in a specific pattern in response to the female sex hormones. Knowing the time of ovulation would help you to avoid unwanted pregnancy or would help you to get pregnant at increased rates of success. This is possible with the ovulation test that is designed for home use.
The ovulation can be determined by a lot of methods using a variety of devices. The most commonly used is the ovulation test kit. The LH ovulation test that uses the dip stick technique for testing urine is a favorable one. It is similar to that of the drug testing strips. You just have to buy these home based ovulation prediction kits. Then take your urine sample in a clean container and dip the testing strip in it for few seconds and wait for the color change in the control lines. Using the instruction manual and the color chart try to interpret the results.
There are also other ovulation test kits like saliva ovulation test, digital thermometer for the measurement of the basal body temperature. Though these tests are associated with specific changes related to ovulation, yet these changes can also be seen in other conditions which make the monitoring of LH levels a very reliable one.
Ovulation test strips are designed for testing the LH in urine. Midstream urine is the preferred sample for ovulation testing. It is only a one step procedure showing results within minutes. But you must know when to do these tests. You must have a good knowledge about your menstrual cycle and have to do the ovulation testing only when your menses cycle chart shows positive for ovulation. You should not test for ovulation from the very first day of the cycle which would mean a lot of waste.
The advantage of ovulation test strip is that you can keep a record of your menstrual cycle without taking the help of laboratories or sophisticated devices. You can show this record to your physician when required for knowing your hormone status.
