Clicks Ovulation Test 4 Tests
Clicks ovulation test is a qualitative test used to predict when there is a surge in LH (luteinizing hormone) levels and in turn, when you are likely to ovulate. How does it work? The LH (luteinizing hormone) which is in the urine of normal women will increase dramatically in the middle of the menstrual cycle. The LH increase triggers ovulation which is when the egg is released periodically from normal fertile women. World health organisation experts state that LH testing is a reliable way to detect ovulation. Ovulation will occur after 24-48 hours following a positive test. When the specimen is dropped into the cassette, capillary action carves the specimen to migrate along the membrane. When LH in the specimen reaches the test zone region of the membrane, it will form a coloured line. Absence of this coloured line suggests a negative result. To serve as a procedure control, a coloured line will appear at the control zone region, if the test has been performed properly. The test strip detects ovulation with a high degree of certainty. It is a valuable tool in helping to achieve pregnancy since it determines the period that the egg and the sperm cells will meet in the best conditions. Ovulation may be irregular because of circumstances, emotions and other factors in your life. You cannot presume that ovulation always occurs at the same time after menstruation, therefore you should test again in each menstrual cycle. Content of the test kit: One pouch containing a cassette, dropper and desiccant. The dropper is for collecting and dropping samples. The desiccant is for storage purposes only, and is not used in the test procedures. Leaflet with instructions for use. The Clicks ovulation test is a qualitative test used to predict when there is a LH surge, and in turn, when you are likely to ovulate.

What else do you need? A clean, dry, plastic or glass container to collect the urine. Timer (watch or clock). Specimen collection and preparation: When to collect urine for the test? Any urine specimen is appropriate for ovulation testing. How to collect urine? Urine specimens may be collected in any clean, dry, plastic or glass container. When to begin testing: The length of the menstrual cycle is the duration from your first menstrual bleeding day to the day before the next bleeding begins. Determine the length of menstrual cycle before testing. Please refer to the chart below to determine when you should start testing. If your cycle is shorter than 21 days or longer than 38 days, consult a physician. If you do not know your cycle length, you may begin the test 11 days after your first period since the average cycle length is 28 days. Perform 1 test each day over a 4 day period, or until the LH surge has been detected. Example: if your cycle is normally twenty-six days, the cycle chart indicates testing should begin on day 10. The testing day as indicated in the cycle chart is determined by counting from day 1 of the menstrual cycle. Cycle chart: Cycle length - day of cycle to begin testing. 21 days - 5 day. 22 days - 6 day. 23 days - 7 day. 24 days - 8 day. 25 days - 9 day. 26 days - 10 day. 27 days - 11 day. 28 days - 12 day. 29 days - 13 day. 30 days - 14 day. 31 days - 15 day. 32 days - 16 day. 33 days - 17 day. 34 days - 18 day. 35 days - 19 day. 36 days - 20 day. 37 days - 21 day. 38 days - 22 day. 39 days - 23 day. 40 days - 24 day. How to do the test: 1. Remove the testing device from the foil pouch by tearing at the notch and placing it on a level surface. 2. Holding a sample dropper vertically, add exactly four drops of the urine to the sample well (marked with an arrow). 3. Read results in 5 minutes. Do not read results after more than 10 minutes. How to read the results: LH surge: if two colour bands are visible, and the test band is equal to or darker than the control band, one will probably ovulate in the next 24-48 hours. If trying to get pregnant, the best time to have intercourse is after 24 but before 48 hours. No LH surge: only one colour band appears on the control region, or the test band appears but is lighter than the control band. This means that there is no LH surge. Invalid: no visible band at all or test line appears but not the control line. Repeat with a new test kit. If the test still fails please contact the distributor or the store where you bought the product, with the lot number.
