Quite a few couples with an active desire to have children take ovulation test strips in order to gain more insight into their fertility state.
When we’re talking about the ‘fertile window’ – we’re referring to the days in a woman’s menstrual cycle when conception is possible. The ‘fertile window’ depends on the length of the menstrual cycle, which varies greatly from woman to woman.
The fertile window is the day of ovulation itself and the five days beforehand. Having sex during this time gives you the best chance of getting pregnant.
Whether a woman has had an ovulation in her cycle, can currently only be accurately determined with blood analysis or ultrasound. However, urine-based ovulation tests can indicate that ovulation is likely to occur in the course of 36 to 24 hours. Ovulation test strips work best with morning urine and when applied in the correct manner in respect to specific cycle days. Shortly before ovulation, the concentration of the luteinising hormone (LH) increases. This increase is relative to the previously measured daily value and is considered a marker for impending ovulation.
