When an ovulation test strip indicates a positive, does ovulation happen afterwards or am I currently ovulating?

If you get a positive ovulation test result, that means ovulation will occur in the next 24 hours. Sperm can live inside the female reproductive system for 5 days so if you’re trying to conceive you should try to time intercourse right before ovulation.

When is the best time of day to take my urine sample for use with an Ovry Ovulation Test Strip?
Unlike pregnancy tests, you should avoid taking ovulation tests with the first urine of the day. The best times to test are between 10:00am and 8:00pm. If testing twice a day, it is recommended to test at least 8 hours apart.


Can drinking too much liquid affect my Ovry Ovulation Test Strip result?
Yes. If possible, it is suggested to limit liquid intake 2 hours before testing your urine to avoid diluting the concentration of LH which can lead to a false negative.


I have recently stopped using hormonal contraceptive. Will this affect the results?
After using hormonal contraceptives, you may experience an irregular menstrual cycle. For many women, it takes at least a few months for menstruation to normalize. To get the most accurate results with the Ovry Ovulation Test Strips, it is recommended to wait until your cycle has normalized (at least two months).


How do I read my Ovry Ovulation Test Strip result?

Please refer to the test strip Instructions for a diagram to supplement the following result descriptions:

POSITIVE: Distinct pink-colored line appears in the control and test regions, and the test line (T) is equal to or darker than the control line (C), indicating one will probably ovulate in the next 24-48 hours. If trying to get pregnant, the best time to have intercourse is within 24 hours of obtaining a positive test.

NEGATIVE: Only one pink line appears in the control region (C) or the test line (T) is lighter than the control line (C) indicating a very low level of LH in urine, which is a negative result for ovulation.
INVALID: No visible band appears in the control region (C). Repeat with a new test strip. If the next test is also invalid, please take note of the lot number on the packaging and contact us at info@myovry.com
