1. What is ovulation?
Ovulation is the process resulting in the release of an egg (the ovum) from the ovaries, and represents the time in which a woman is able to get pregnant.
The ovulation is a short period of time (up to 12 hours) during which the ovum can be fertilised. It is important to mention that ovulation does not occur in every cycle. In one out of 13 cycles occurs an anovulatory cycle – absence of ovulation when it would be normally expected.

3. What is "LH surge"?
"LH surge" is the moment in which the organism produces the highest quantities of the luteinizing hormone. When the hormone is detected, Oview® shows a positive result which is a sign that ovulation will occur in 24-48 hours.

4. Can Oview® give a false result?
Oview® can give a misleading result if you are taking fertility drugs containing luteinising hormone (LH) or human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG).
Also, in case of intake of medicines that affect the cycle length, please keep in mind that this changes the day you should start testing.
You may get a misleading result if you are actually pregnant, have recently been pregnant, or have reached the menopause.

5. I have followed all 5 steps, but the ovulation test did not show a positive result. What should I do?
You may not detect the LH surge in the first 5 days of testing, because of irregular cycle. This could mean you have not ovulated yet and you should continue testing with an additional Oview® kit.
