What is an ovulation test?

An ovulation test (also sometimes called an OPK, which stands for ovulation predictor kit) is a test that detects the presence and concentration of luteinizing hormone (LH) in your urine. About 12 – 36 hours before ovulation, there is a brief surge in LH levels. (The length of time between the beginning of the LH surge and ovulation varies from woman to woman.) The LH surge sends a message to your ovaries that it’s time to release an egg: ovulation! When you get a positive ovulation test, it means that ovulation is likely imminent.

How soon after a positive ovulation test will I ovulate?

Most women ovulate between 12 – 36 hours after the first positive ovulation test. Since the surge can sometimes last for a day or two, testing every day—or even twice a day, once in the morning and once in the afternoon—can help provide context for where in your surge you are.

Should I wait for a positive ovulation test to have sex?

No! For many women, the most fertile days of the cycle happen before the ovulation test even turns positive. If you always wait for an ovulation test to have sex, you could be missing some of your best days to conceive. Check out our fertility calendar to see which days give you the best chances of getting pregnant.

If you know how to track your vaginal discharge—also known as your cervical mucus—you can usually get earlier warning of ovulation that ovulation tests will give you.

What’s the right way to take an ovulation test?

Follow the instructions on the package—different brands of tests have different instructions.

Don’t drink excessive fluids before testing.

Try not to urinate for at least four hours before testing.

When in my cycle should I start testing?

That depends on which type of test you’re using. Certain kinds of digital LH tests work by measuring changes in hormone levels from your personal baseline. In order to use these digital tests properly, you need to start testing before your LH surge begins. Follow the directions on the package insert to determine what day of your cycle, depending on your average cycle length, to start testing.

Don’t be tempted to use fewer testing sticks by starting your testing later in your cycle. If you miss the non-fertile days of testing, you will not be able to accurately identify the fertile days. For this reason, it’s also important to use one and only one test base per cycle.

The less expensive tests, like Wondfos, tend to work by looking for an absolute threshold of LH in your urine. This means that it’s not as important to start testing early. You want to test early enough that you won’t miss your LH surge, of course, but since the test isn’t establishing any kind of baseline, testing before the surge is not strictly necessary.

What is the difference between various ovulation tests?

Most home ovulation tests are based on indicating a surge of the luteinizing hormone (LH) in the urine, which occurs 12 to 36 hours before an egg is released from its follicle.

This period and the first 24 hours after ovulation are known as the fertile window when the chances to conceive are the highest.

There are also test systems that can indicate increased levels of both LH and estrone-3-glucuronide (E-3-G) in the urine.

E-3-G is an estrogen decomposition product, and its level increases in the blood and urine before the peak of LH, which allows one to determine the favorable time for conception much earlier.

The fertile window determined by this test is about 6 days.

Five days before ovulation, a surge in E-3-G is detected, which means that ovulation is approaching.

From this moment, you can start having sex actively because sperm can survive in the female body up to 5 days, waiting for a mature egg.
