When to Begin Testing:

The length of the menstrual cycle is the duration from your first menstrual bleeding day to the day before the next bleeding begins. Determine the length of menstrual cycle before test. Please refer to the chart below to determine when you should start testing. If you do not know your cycle length, you may begin the test 11 days after your first period since the average cycle length is 28 days. Perform 1 test each day over a 5-day period (preferably at the same time each day) or until the LH surge has been detected.

How to do the test:

1.     The test strip and urine have to be at room temperature (15C – 30C) for testing

2.     Remove the test strip from the sealed pouch

3.     Immerse the strip into the urine with the arrow pointing towards the urine. Take the strip out after 10-15 seconds and lay the strip flat on a clean, dry, non-absorbent surface (such as the mouth of the urine container). IMPORTANT: Do not allow the urine level to exceed the MAX (MAX Line), otherwise the test will not perform correctly.

4.     Read results in five minutes.  Do not read results after more than 5 minutes.
 

How to read the results:

1.     LH Surge (Positive): If two color bands are visible, and the test band is equal to or darker than the control band, one will probably ovulate in the next 24-48 hours. If you are trying to get pregnant, the best time to have intercourse is after 24 but before 48 hours.

2.     No LH Surge (Negative): Only one color band appears on the control region, or the test band appears but is lighter than the control band.  This means there is no LH surge.

3.     Invalid: No visible band at all, or there is a visible band only in the test region and not in the control region.  Repeat with a new test kit.

 
Limitations:

1.     The test works only when the test procedures are precisely followed.

2.     This test may not be used as a form of birth control.

3.     Consult a doctor if irregular or unusually long cycles are experienced.
