For those of you who don't know, but have heard of ovulation tests, please read the following:

What is ovulation?

To ovulate, the mature egg must be released from the follicle and move into the fallopian tube. Within the next 24-48 hours, it has the potential to be fertilized by the strongest sperm. Every month women have their period. They also ovulate every month. In order to ovulate, some hormones work together from the beginning of the cycle to that day.

How do I detect the peak of the hormone?

In ovulation, we are primarily interested in the hormone LH. LH is usually the hormone responsible for the ovulation. LH peaks 24 hours before the mature egg is released from the follicle and in conjunction with FSH, they peak together and ovulation takes place. The surge is detected ONLY by an ovulation test. HomeTest ovulation tests are available in strips, midstream and digital type.

When should I have intercourse in order to get pregnant?

HomeTest ovulation tests in strips and midstream type, detect the peak of LH, so when you have the positive result in your hands, you know that the next two days are your fertile days and you can plan your intercourse. At HomeTest, we always recommend that you start your intercourse on the day of the first positive result and continue for 2 days afterwards. HomeTest digital ovulation tests on the other hand, detect the peak of the combination of LH and FSH and similarly, when you have the positive test in your hands, you know that the next two days are your fertile days and you plan your intercourse.

Below you can watch how to use ovulation tests in strip, midstream and digital type:

Why do I need to find my ovulation?

A woman who wants to get pregnant easily and quickly must find her ovulation day every month and aim for frequent intercourse within the fertile window in order to increase the chances of conception. Ovulation tests are indicated both for normal cycles, but also for unstable cycles. It is common for a woman to believe that she is ovulating on a certain day of her cycle, but in fact ovulation occurs a few days before or a few days after.
