We say it every day here at Fairhaven Health: the key to achieving pregnancy is knowing when you ovulate, your most fertile time of month. A great way of determining that is by using urine-based ovulation tests.
Ovulation tests work by detecting the surge in Luteinizing Hormone (LH) that occurs just before you ovulate. When your LH levels go up, you know that ovulation is right around the corner. In fact, you will typically ovulate within 24-48 hours of your LH surge.
Our BFP Ovulation Test Strips are designed specifically for trying-to-conceive women. They're easy to use, highly accurate, and they cost just a fraction of what drugstore brands charge.
Unlike midstream ovulation tests, which are held directly in the urine stream, BFP Ovulation Test Strips are designed to be dipped into collected urine (a Dixie cup works fine). After dipping the test in urine, lay it on a flat surface. Within minutes, your test result will appear. A positive result indicates that peak fertility is at hand and that this is your optimal time for achieving pregnancy.
Interpreting the results of your ovulation test is simple: simply compare the intensity (boldness) of the test line to that of the control line. If the test line is as bold or bolder than the control line, that indicates a positive result and ovulation will occur within 24-48 hours. If the test line is fainter than the control line, or if the test line is not visible at all, that indicates a negative result.
See the sample results below for illustrative purposes. Note that complete test instructions ship with every order.
