    Q: If I am still uncertain when the test kit is positive, what shall I do?
    A: If you are still uncertain when the test kit is positive, try this exercise. During one cycle, have intercourse when you think your kit shows you are ovulating, and then continue to test your urine even though ovulation has past. This will help you see the maximum darkness of your test line. Knowing that the ovulation signal (LH surge) only lasts 48-60 hours, your test line will eventually start to fade away if you continue testing after ovulation. Seeing this line fade will help you know the peak darkness of your test line and give you more confidence in pinpointing your most fertile time.

    Q: How long should I continue to perform the test?
    A: Unless otherwise specified by a doctor, stop testing once the LH surge is detected. Five to ten days of testing may be needed to detect the LH surge, though additional testing may be required.

    Q: Is a concern that pink BG color & vertical streaking appeared in testing period
    A: No. Each urine sample will vary in its chemical makeup, as will the humidity of the air in testing chamber (room). Such variations in physical conditions can cause the vertical streaking and/or the pink-rose background color but will not affect the test results. As long as the control band appears within five minutes, the test is working properly.

    Q: Today's C line is a different shade of red than yesterday's C line. a concern?
    A: No. Variations in the color of the control line will not affect the test result. Always compare the color of the test line to that of the control line of the same device on the day the test is performed. Do not compare bands from different devices.

    Q: Can test results be interpreted after five minutes?
    A: No. The test should be read at 3-5 minutes for best results. Though a positive result should not change for several days, a negative result may change to a false positive within minutes after the end of the testing period, which would not be an accurate reading. Therefore, do not read the result after 10 minutes and discard the test midstream after reading the test.

    Q: Why is first morning urine not a good sample?
    A: First morning urine is not recommended as most women experience a blood LH surge in early morning but it does not show up in the urine until later in the day.

    Q: Does alcohol, aspirin, paracetamol or any other common drug affect the test?
    A: No, but some hormonal medications can interfere with test results. If such medications are being taken or are suspected, seek professional advice from a physician to confirm the test results. Drugs containing HCG or LH can affect the test results, and clomid can cause false positives if you begin testing too early in your cycles.

    Q: Does this test replace the basal body temperature method (BBT)?
    A: The shift in basal body temperature primarily indicates that ovulation has already occurred. The LH Ovulation Test indicates that ovulation is about to occur.
