If you have regular menstrual cycles, you are probably ovulating (releasing ripe eggs from your ovary). If you only have a period every few months or not at all, you are probably not ovulating. Or you may be ovulating infrequently.
By monitoring when you ovulate, you may be able to conceive (become pregnant) more quickly and easily. You can use an over-the-counter ovulation prediction kit. The test kit helps you plan for ovulation before it takes place. That way you can schedule intercourse or insemination at a time when you are most likely to become pregnant.
These urine test kits are designed to detect the surge of luteinizing hormone (LH) that occurs just before you ovulate. The LH surge stimulates one of the ovaries to release an egg and produce progesterone. Ovulation prediction kits usually detect the LH surge about a day or a day and a half before you ovulate.
