First Response Australia

First ResponseTM Ovulation Test is over 99% accurate in detecting the LH surge in laboratory studies.
Since not every woman ovulates mid-cycle, you may not detect the LH surge in the first 7 days of testing. This could mean you have not ovulated yet and you should continue testing with additional First ResponseTM Ovulation Tests.
First, it is important to remember that it can take normal, healthy couples many months to become pregnant. There are many factors which affect your ability to become pregnant even if you have been able to have intercourse during your most fertile time. If after several months you have no success, consult your health professional. Since you have been monitoring your LH surge with the First ResponseTM Ovulation Test, you will be able to give your health professional a clearer picture of how you have been ovulating.

Your two most fertile days begin with the LH surge. You are most likely to get pregnant if you have intercourse within 24-36 hours after you detect your LH surge.

There should be at least one pink line in the Result Window at 5 minutes. If not, the test is invalid. This could be due to insufficient urine on the Absorbent Tip or not laying the test stick on a flat surface with the Result Window facing up. You should retest with another stick, carefully following all directions.

Certain medical conditions may adversely affect the reliability of this test for predicting ovulation. These include pregnancy, postpartum, post-abortion, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), ovarian cysts, the onset of menopause, and untreated hypothyroidism. Some prescription drugs, such as menotropins for injection (Pergonal*) and danazol (Danocrine*), may affect the result you see. If you are undergoing therapy with Clomiphene citrate (e.g., Clomid* or Serophene*). please consult your health professional for the appropriate time

to begin testing. Medications containing hCG or LH may affect the test and should not be taken while using this test. Women with medically diagnosed fertility problems should consult their health professional before using this product.

After using oral contraceptives your cycle may be irregular and may take some time to stabilise again. You may wish to wait until you have had two normal periods before starting to use the First ResponseTM In-stream Ovulation Test. Follow your health professional’s advice on when to best try to become pregnant.

Sperm can survive up to 72 hours (3 days), and this test predicts your LH surge only up to 24-36 hours in advance. Therefore, if you have intercourse before you discover your surge, the egg can still be fertilised.

Luteinizing Hormone (LH) is always present in your urine and increases just before ovulation. This increase or “surge” in LH triggers ovulation, which is the release of an egg from your ovaries and the most fertile time of your cycle. The First ResponseTM In-stream Ovulation Test detects the LH surge, which precedes ovulation by 24 – 36 hours. Your two most fertile days begin with the LH surge.

If you have intercourse within the next 24 – 36 hours of your surge, you will maximise your chances of becoming pregnant.
