Ovulation Tests



dotest LHa

dotest LHa


At-home ovulation test. Contains 7 tests.


Indication:

Detection of luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine. Detection of a surge in LH indicates upcoming ovulation.


Instructions for use:

Roughly 17 days before the day your period is supposed to start, use 1 test every day around the same time until you get a positive result, OR use 2 tests (i.e. morning and evening) per day around the same time until you get a positive result.

If it is less than 17 days before your period when you purchase this test kit, wait until your next cycle to use this test, as it may not be accurate.


  1. Uncap one test stick. Push the cap onto the back end of the test stick until it clicks into place.

  2. Urinate directly on the testing tip for 2 seconds OR collect a urine sample in a clean receptacle, and dip the testing tip in the sample for 2 seconds. Do not let the body of the test stick come into contact with your urine.

  3. With the absorbent tip facing down, replace the cap. Lay the capped test stick on a flat surface and wait for 5 minutes.

  4. Check for a line in the small 尿量確認 window. If there is no line, the test has failed. Please take another test and be careful to follow the instructions exactly.

  5. Check for 2 lines in the large window. If the line on the 判定 side is the same darkness as the line on the 基準 side, then you are having an LH surge, and you will likely ovulate within the next two days. If the 判定 line is lighter than the 基準 line, or if there is no 判定line at all, you are likely not having an LH surge, and are probably not ovulating. Wait 1 day and take one test per day around the same time until you get a positive result. If there are no lines in the large window at all, retake the test on a new test stick.


Other info:

If your urine is cloudy or if there is any tissue or other matter in your urine, do not use this test.

Try not to urinate for 4 hours before taking this test.

Do not drink a lot of water before using this test.

If you get a positive result on the first test, it is possible you are already ovulating. If you are trying to get pregnant, you should have intercourse as soon as possible to increase your chances of becoming pregnant.

If you repeatedly get positive tests throughout the testing week, see your OB/GYN. There are a number of medical conditions that can cause extended positive tests.

Keep test kit out of reach of children.

Store test kit in a cool, dark place out of direct sunlight.

Do not store test kit in the refrigerator or freezer.
