One Step QTEST Ovulation Urine Test is a qualitative test used to predict when there is a LH surge, and in turn, when you are likely to ovulate.
- Detects LH (Luteinizing Hormone) which is in the urine of women.
- LH increases dramatically in the middle of the menstrual cycle.
- Easy to read and understand results, with 99% accuracy

LH – Luteinizing Hormone
The One Step ovulation test will help you find the time when you are most able to become pregnant and help you plan your pregnancy. Luteinizing hormone (LH) is always present in human urine. It increases just before a woman’s most fertile day of the month. This LH increase triggers ovulation. During ovulation an egg is released from the ovary. Because the egg can be fertilized only 12 to 36 hours after ovulation, detecting ovulation in advance is very important.
You may do this test at any time of the day, but you should test at approximately the same time each day and reduce your liquid intake for 2 hours before testing.
To decide when to begin testing, determine the length of your normal menstrual cycle. The length of your cycle is from the beginning of one period to the beginning of the next (count the first day of bleeding or spotting as day 1). If your cycle length is irregular, that is, if it varies by more than a few days each month, take the average number of days for the last 3 months. The length of the menstrual cycle is the duration from your first menstrual bleeding day to the day before the next bleeding begins. Determine the length of menstrual cycle before you test. lf your cycle is shorter than 21 days or longer than 38 days, consult a physician. lf you do not know your cycle length, you may begin the test 11 days after your first period since the average cycle length is 28 days. Perform 1 test each day over a 5 days period, or until the LH surge has been detected.

LH Surge: lf two color bands are visible, and the test band is equal to or darker than the contrcl band, you will probably ovulate in the next 24-48 hours. lf you are trying to get pregnant, the best time to have intercourse is after 24 but before 48 hours.
No LH Surge: Only one color band appears on the control region, or the test band appears but is lighter than the control band. This means there is no LH surge.
INVALID: No visible band appears at all. Repeat with a new test kit.
