We offer a wide range of at-home tests that measure different aspects of both his & her fertility. As such, these different tests have different instructions for use regarding timing.
OPK / urine ovulation tests should be done at the same time each day starting about 5 days before expected ovulation. Do not use the first specimen of the morning after waking up. This is because the ovulation hormone (Luteinizing Hormone / LH) is made in your body early in the morning it might not appear in your urine until the afternoon.
The ideal time to do the Ovulation Predictor urine tests is in the afternoon about 2pm, but testing can take place anytime from 10am to early evening. Reduce your liquid intake for about 2 hours before testing as a dilute sample could affect the test.
Saliva ovulation tests can be taken at any time during the day and every day of the month if you wish. Ideally test your saliva first thing in the morning. Do not test right after eating, drinking or brushing your teeth – wait an hour or two as this could affect the test result.
Ovulation testing should start about 5 days before you think you will ovulate. Please see package inserts for detailed information on which day to start testing as this depends on your average cycle length.
Basal Body Temperature / BBT :
Take your temperature before rising in the morning. Please note that any activity can raise your Basal Body Temperature. It’s a good idea to keep your BBT Thermometer, Fertility Tracking Chart and a pen / pencil in your bedside cabinet for ease of use.
Most home pregnancy tests are capable of detecting pregnancy as early as 1 day after a missed period. Test your urine during your first morning bathroom visit when the concentration of the HCG / Human Chorionic Gonadotropin hormone is at its highest.
FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) test:
Typically measured on day 3 counted from last menstruation. First morning urine specimen is preferred for this FSH Test , since it generally contains the highest concentration of the hormone.
Home Sperm Count Test:
Before using this home sperm test refrain from any sexual activity for 3-7 days. This ensures that the volume and quality of sperm is at its peak & ensures the test is accurate.
