Diagnostic tests detect female ovulation when human Luteinizing Hormone (hLH) peaks in elevation during the menstrual cycle. This elevated peak is better known as the ‘LH surge’. This surge has been used successfully as an aid to predict ovulation that is regulated by the elevation of hLH. Usually, hLH remains at a basal level during the menstrual cycle and has a brief, significant, rapid increase around 14 days before the next period starts. The hLH surge triggers ovulation: the release of an egg or eggs from the ovary. HLH returns to its basal line 2 to 3 days after ovulation. Studies have shown that conception most likely happens within thirty-six hours following the hLH surge.
Instant-view® hLH Ovulation tests utilize antibodies highly specific to hLH. If you obtain a positive result from this test, it indicates that you may ovulate within thirty-six hours.
