Can a small test paper predict ovulation? Learn quickly!

When you are pregnant, when to ovulate is a very important information. If you can predict the date of ovulation, you can make preparations early, thus improving the efficiency of pregnancy preparation. There are many ways to predict ovulation, one of which can be done by a test paper. This magical test paper is ovulation test paper. What is the working principle of ovulation test paper? How to use it? Here are some answers for you.
Q1. What is ovulation test paper? How does it work?
Ovulation test paper can predict ovulation by detecting the peak level of luteinizing hormone (LH). Why can the peak level of luteinizing hormone predict when ovulation will occur? During the menstrual cycle, some hormones, including luteinizing hormone, change regularly.
Q2. How to use ovulation test paper?
Ovulation test paper is recommended to start testing on the 10th day after menstrual cramps. If your menstrual cycle is short, you can advance the test time appropriately, or have specific doctor’s guidance. It can be tested once a day at the initial stage of detection and once every 6-8 hours after it is positive. When there is a strong positive, it can be detected once every 4-6 hours until the peak is found.
When in use, use a clean and dry container to collect urine, not morning urine. The best time to collect urine is from 10 am to 8 pm, and try to use urine samples at the same time every day. Then immerse the end of the test strip with the arrow mark line in urine, take it out and lay it flat for 10-20 minutes after about three seconds, and observe the results for no more than 30 minutes.
Q3. What do you think of the results of ovulation test paper?
There will be a control line on the ovulation test paper. If there are two lines, and the new line is shallower than the control line, it means that there is no peak value of LH in urine and it needs to be monitored continuously.
When the color of the detection line is darker than that of the control line, it means that LH has obviously increased. When the continuous detection begins to fade, the previous detection time can be judged as LH peak, and ovulation is about to occur within 24-48 hours.
In practice, it is suggested that the used ovulation test paper be arranged in a row for comparison. The color depth of the detection line represents the level of LH. When it is found that the color of the detection line is getting darker and darker, and it begins to decline gradually after a certain time, this time is the peak of LH.
Q4. Matters needing attention when using ovulation test paper
1. About urine samples
Do not use morning urine. The first urine in the morning, because after a night of accumulation, the LH value contained in the urine does not represent the actual value, so it is best not to use it. In addition, do not consume too much water within 2 hours before the test, so as not to dilute the luteinizing hormone in the urine and affect the test results.
2. Do not use hormonal drugs during the use of ovulation test paper.
