Ovulation Test

  1. 1. Ovulation TestUnderstanding Luteinizing hormonehttp://lhhormone.orgNancy asks…ovulation test?I did an ovulation test yesterday which show i was ovulation. But people also say to watchyour discharge to see when youre ovulation. mine is not the egg white type that you say towatch for. its not much at the moment. was the test right? As im getting my IBSymdol undercontrol its hard for me to say if im getting the cramps that happen when an egg is released.Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:Not every woman gets exactly the ideal type of cervical mucous at the time of ovulation. I clearlyovulated in all my cycles before I got pregnant, but I never had eggwhite mucous. I say trust theovulation predictor kit, and keep having intercourse until it comes up negative. That’s how I gotpregnant, and like I said, I never had the “right” mucous. If I had relied on that, I’d still befrustrated, wondering why I didn’t conceive. 1/6
  2. 2. Ruth asks…Ovulation test?I took a Ovulation test today and saw a very faded line. I know it has to be darker to bepositive. So I was wondering since there was a faint line does it mean I am on my way toovulating soon?Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:You need check temperatureJenny asks…Ovulation Test? 2/6
  3. 3. I have just took my first ovulation test today, since i have a 31 day cycle it told me to starttesting today (day 14 of my period) i am using clearblue test. I was wondering why there is onlyone line and its light, and not as shown on box. can someone let me know whats up? i used thetest correctly and in fact did two just to make sure. same thing happened. is this normal?Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:There are good and bad reports from those using the clear blue products. Are you using just theovulation predictor, or the fertility monitor?I would not worry about the presence of only one line, and the darkness of that line. What thetest does is measure the level of luteinizing hormone (LH) in your urine. If you have a 31 daycycle, chances are you won’t ovulate for several more days. You likely will not start seeing asecond line for another couple of days. Even then, wait until the second line is AT LEAST asdark as the control line. When that happens, you are likely to ovulate within the next 12 – 48hours.If you are not already doing so, you should also be keeping track of your basal bodytemperature (BBT), cervical mucous (CM), and cervical position (CP). There are a couple ofreally great programs to help you with that. One is at http://www.fertilityfriend.com – everythingis done online; you don’t have to download any type of program. One disadvantage – the bestfeatures of the program are only available with a paid membership. A regular membership isfree, and includes 30 days of a VIP membership. After that 30 days is up, you have to pay for amembership to continue the extra “VIP” features.Another program that is really good is Ovusoft. It works using the Fertility Awareness Method oftracking ovulation/conception chances; and is best used with the book “Taking Charge of YourFertility.” This is a program you must download to your computer and comes with only 15 freedays. Registration/purchase of this program costs about $40. 3/6

  5. 5. How long does an ovulation test work for?I took an ovulation test last night (I have been taking them daily – yesterday morning it wasnegative) and it showed that I was ovulating. So my husband and I did the ‘deed’. Thismorning I took another ovulation test and it was negative.If I did get pregnant last night, would the ovulation test still show that I am ovulating or would itshow negative?Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:You don’t actually ovulate until 12-24 hours AFTER your positive opk. Keep doing the deed andtesting to cover your bases.Lizzie asks…Will an ovulation test give a positive result if you are pregnant?I have been doing the ovulation tests for about 2 weeks now and the last 5 days (includingtoday) said that I am ovulating. The FAQ’s doesn’t answer this question it only says that if youare pregnant it can affect the results. I don’t understand why the test would say positive for 5days. I know you don’t ovulate for that many days. 5/6
