Cyclotest LH Hormone Ovulation Predictor Tests - Pack of 5 Quality Mid Stream Tests
Understanding your Menstrual Cycle is critical to charting fertility and predicting ovulation.
During ovulation, a number of different hormonal changes take place. Early in the menstrual cycle, a hormone called Follicle Stimulating Hormone - or FSH - enables your ovaries to nurture eggs.
Within the ovaries, follicles house each individual developing egg. The follicles that hold the eggs will secrete estrogen. As the menstrual cycle progresses, the follicle containing the developing egg moves toward the surface of the ovary.
Immediately before ovulation, the follicle begins secreting estrogen and progesterone. Estrogen helps the uterine lining thicken and expand, and increases blood flow to the uterus.
Directly prior to ovulation, another hormonal change takes place - the LH Surge. LH (or Luteinizing Hormone) is the hormone that actually facilitates ovulation: it causes the egg to separate from the ovarian surface.
Cyclotest ovulation predictor kit (OPK) works by detecting this LH Surge, thus alerting the woman that ovulation is about to take place. For this reason this type of test is described as a "predictor kit" as it anticipates ovulation, rather than an "ovulation test" whose name would imply it is confirming current ovulation.
The Cyclotest ovulation predictor kit is a Single-stage ovulation prediction test with hygienic holder for detecting the ovulatory hormone LH in urine in order to determine the most fertile phase prior to ovulation. Collection of urine is not necessary with this products - you can hold the test directly in the urine stream.
This product is approved for use in conjunction with a Cyclotest fertility monitor to help increase your chances of getting pregnant. By crossing LH data readings from the Cyclotest ovulation predictor kit and daily temperature readings, the Cyclotest fertility monitor gets to know your fertility profile and when you ovulate. This information allows the Cyclotest to advise you of the best time to plan intercourse for conception, whilst saving all of the data for medical consultations.
