LH (Luteinizing Hormone) is one of the hormones produced by the pituitary gland. It is secreted at very low levels throughout your menstrual cycle. Once a developing egg follicle reaches a certain size, LH secretion surges to high levels. This hormone surge is what triggers ovulation about 24 to 48 hours later. Your LH surge is important because it initiates the beginning of ovulation.
Ovulation is the release of a mature egg from the ovary. It signals the beginning of your fertile period. A positive result indicates the presence of a high amount of LH or LH surge. The amount of LH in your body will begin to decrease after ovulation, so you’ll only get a positive result during that crucial fertile period. Once the egg is released, it is only viable for about 24 hours. After that, your fertile window is over. This makes it very important to be able to identify this best time to conceive.
Ovulation may be irregular because of conditions, emotions and other factors in your life. You can’t presume that ovulation always occurs at the same time after menstruation. Therefore, you should test again in each menstrual cycle.
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 test. Please refer to the chart included in the package 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.
Reading the results:
Positive (LH Surge): If two color 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 haveintercourse is after 24 but before 48 hours.
Negative (No LH Surge): Only one color band appears on the control region, or the test band appears but is lighter than the control band.
About EZ Level Pregnancy Tests
Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone produced by the developing placenta shortly after conception. Pregmate pregnancy tests detect the presence of HCG in urine. The average implantation time is 9 days past ovulation. It takes 2 or 3 days after implantation for the embryo to make enough HCG for a home pregnancy test to work. That means the majority of women won’t get a positive result until 11 days past ovulation. If you want to test as early as possible, but want to make sure you are getting the most accurate reading, test the day your next period is supposed to begin - you will have a 99% chance of getting an accurate result.
Reading the results:
POSITIVE (Pregnant): Two color bands appear in the Control and Test Zones. It indicates that you are pregnant. The color intensity of the test bands may vary since different stages of pregnancy have different concentrations of HCG. The hormone level increases as your pregnancy progresses. If the results reveal a faint test line, there is a strong possibility that you're pregnant. If HCG is present in your urine, you'll have a positive test result.
NEGATIVE (Not Pregnant): Only one color band appears in the Control Zone. No apparent band in the Test Zone. This indicates that no pregnancy has been detected.
