We provide high-sensitivity, FDA approved, early-detection first response ovulation tests and ovulation predictor kits designed for home use.
Tests to accurately predict when a woman is ovulating were once available only in a doctor's office, but they are now readily accessible for home use. Easy to use and highly reliable, these test kits offer convenience, privacy and are truly affordable. Women, who wish to become pregnant, now have the cost-effective option of using medically sound testing devices in the comfort of their own home without the hassle and expense of specialists. Our Ovulation Prediction Kits are very similar to the tests used by fertility specialists and, in fact, many physicians recommend our kits to their patients.
We offer a variety of kits for home use and are providing the following information to help you discern which options might work best for you. Many women combine a variety of tests to help determine the optimum time to engage in intercourse in order to achieve a pregnancy. Detecting the LH (Luteinizing Hormone) "Surge" is the key to determining when you are fertile and our products are designed to take the guesswork out of the process. A luteinizing hormone test measures the amount of luteinizing hormone (LH) in a sample of blood or urine. LH is produced by the pituitary gland.
* In women, LH helps regulate the menstrual cycle and egg production (ovulation). The level of LH in a woman's body varies with the phase of the menstrual cycle. It increases rapidly just before ovulation occurs, about midway through the cycle (day 14 of a 28-day cycle). This is called an LH surge. Luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone levels rise and fall together during the monthly menstrual cycle.
* In men, LH stimulates the production of testosterone, which plays a role in sperm production.
What for It Is Done?
A luteinizing hormone (LH) test may be done to:
* Help find the cause for a couple's inability to become pregnant (infertility). LH testing is commonly used to evaluate:
- A woman's egg supply (ovarian reserve).
- A man's sperm count.
* Help evaluate menstrual problems, such as irregular or absent menstrual periods (amenorrhea). This can help determine whether the woman has gone through menopause.
* Determine whether a child is going through early puberty (also called precocious puberty). Puberty is early when it starts in girls younger than age 9 and in boys younger than age 10.
* Determine why sexual features or organs are not developing when they should (delayed puberty).
* Determine (usually with a urine sample) when a woman is ovulating. Home urine tests for ovulation are available.
* Monitor a woman's response to medications given to stimulate ovulation.
