Q:

What stage exactly does the ovulation strip show positive? Before a follicle is about to rupture or after the egg is released??



Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

hello komal...
ovulation test indicates that an egg, also known as a ovum, is about to be released from the ovaries.  Once released, it will be  ready for fertilization. Ovulation tests detect the luteinizing hormone (LH) that  pituitary gland releases right before ovulation. Once the LH surge is detected, ovulation test will show a positive result.  For most women, the positive result lets know that you will be ovulating within 24 to 36 hours.
