Ovulation is the process that results in the release of one or more eggs from your ovary. Each month, between three and 30 eggs mature inside one of your ovaries. The largest is pushed out into the pelvic cavity and swept into the fallopian tube.
Your egg only survives for between 12 hours and 24 hours if it is not fertilised. There’s only a small window each month during which you can conceive, typically no longer than about six days. This time leading up to ovulation is when you are most fertile.
Ovastream (ovulation tests) can help you to identify your fertile window when
1. You or your partner works away from home a lot, which makes regular sex difficult.
2. You have an irregular cycle, which makes it more difficult to conceive.
3. You and your partner have hectic schedules and already have children. Sex may not be a priority, and having sex every two days to three days may feel like
just another chore.
Ovastream is Urine-based test your wee (urine) for an increase (surge) in luteinising hormone (LH). This happens one day to two days before ovulation.
A small amount of LH is always present in wee. But in the one or two days before ovulation the amount of LH increases by about two times to five times, which triggers ovulation . Ovulation is the most fertile part of your cycle. This is when you are most likely to conceive.
User Guide: Hold a stick under you as you wee. Coloured bands will appear on the test card or stick to indicate whether or not the LH surge is occurring. Digital OPKs use symbols, such as a smiley face, to tell you when you are on your most fertile days.
