How Does It Work?
The Core Test one-step ovulation test strip is a qualitative test used to predict when there is an LH surge and, in turn, when you are likely to ovulate.
The LH (Luteinizing Hormone), found in urine, will increase dramatically in the middle of the menstrual cycle. The LH increase triggers ovulation which is when the egg is released periodically from normal fertile women. WHO experts state that LH testing is a reliable way to detect ovulation. Ovulation will occur after 24-48 hours following a positive test.
When the ovulation test strip is immersed into a urine specimen, capillary action carries the specimen to migrate along the membrane. When LH in the specimen reaches the test zone region of the membrane, it will form a coloured line. Absence of this coloured line suggests a negative result.
To serve as a procedure control, a coloured line will appear at the control zone region, if the test has been performed properly. The test strip detects ovulation with a high degree of certainty. It is a valuable tool in helping to achieve pregnancy, since it determines the period that the egg and the sperm cells will meet in the best conductions.
Ovulation may be irregular because of circumstances, emotions and other factors in your life. You cannot presume that ovulation will always be regular.
How to Use:
- The test strip and urine have to be at room temperature for testing
- Remove the test strip from the sealed pouch
- Immerse the strip into urine with the arrow pointing towards the urine
- Take the strip out after three seconds and lay the strip flat on a clean, dry, non-absorbent surface
- Important: do not allow the urine level to exceed the Max line, otherwise the test will not perform correctly
- Read results in five minutes. Do not read results after five minutes.
When to Perform A Test:
Do NOT use First Morning Urine as LH is synthesised in your body early in the morning. It will nto show up in your urine until later in the the day. The best time to collect your urine is between 10am-8pm. Reduce liquid intake about 2 hours before collecting your urine as diluted urine samples can prevent the test from detecting LH surge.
How to read the results:
LH Surge (Positive)
If two colour brands are visible and the test band is equal to or darker than the control band, one will probably ovulate in the next 24-48 hours. If trying to get pregnant the best time to have intercourse is after 24 hours but before 48 hours.
No LH Surge (Negative)
Only one colour appears on the control region, or the test band appears but is lighter than the than the control band. This means there is no LH Surge.
No visible band at all, or there is a visible band only in the test region and not in the control region. Repeat with new test kit. If test still fails, please contact medical test centre.

How do I know when I'm Ovulating?
I have no problems with this ovulation test. I bought the same one with my firs pregnancy. Worth it..
These are simple and effective to use. We have been trying out best to map out my ovulation cycles and this helped no problem. Would buy again.
These tests are very clear and easy to read and use. It is very easy to see the difference between negative and positive results. I like these tests more than I like the more expensive mid stream tests.
This 10 pack of ovulation tests were worth every cent. Came off the pill & tried for a few months to get pregnant. The first month of using this & the ability to identify the exact optimum days to conceive, I became pregnant.
I bought the Ovulation Tests 10 pack and they are so easy to use and work really well. And to top it off they are so inexpensive! It makes it possible to test as often as you would like without it costing a serious amount of money.
