Test Early, and Test Consistently

The best time to start tracking your cycle is before you start trying to conceive. 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 personal LH surge. It's important to test consistently each day so you don't miss your LH surge.

Frequent Questions

How accurate is the FIRST RESPONSE™ Advanced Digital Ovulation Test?

This test is over 99% accurate in detecting the LH surge in laboratory studies.

Once I detect my LH surge (“YES+”), when is the best time to have intercourse?

Once your LH surge has been detected, you have reached your most fertile time. You are most likely to get pregnant if you have intercourse as soon as possible within 24-36 hours after you detect your LH surge. After your LH surge is detected, the next 2 days are your 2 most fertile days.

I’ve done all of the tests as instructed, but I’ve not yet detected my surge. What should I do?

The FIRST RESPONSE™ Daily Digital Ovulation Test consists of 20 Test Sticks, which are sufficient for most women with regular cycles to detect their LH surge. Some women do not ovulate each cycle and therefore, will not see an LH surge in such cycles. Test again during your next cycle with a new FIRST RESPONSE&trade Daily Digital Ovulation Test Kit. If you have not detected an LH surge after several months of testing, contact your physician.

What if the Digital Reader gets wet?

If the Digital Reader gets wet, you should wipe it clean. If the Reader becomes very wet, it may be damaged. If this occurs, we suggest you dispose of the Digital Reader and purchase a new test kit.

I have done a test, but the clock symbol has not started blinking. What does this mean?

The test has not been done correctly. Eject the Test Stick and wait at least 10 minutes or until the Display Screen is blank. Retest with a new Test Stick following all directions carefully.

The blinking clock symbol has disappeared followed by a “?” symbol on the Display Screen. What does this mean?

A “?” symbol indicates an error has occurred during testing. You should retest with a new Test Stick after the “?” has cleared, which takes about 10 minutes. Follow all directions carefully. To avoid an error from occurring, it is important that you have not urinated for at least 2 hours before testing, and you should avoid excessive fluid intake before testing. After performing the test, keep Absorbent Tip pointing downward or lay the test flat on a non-absorbent surface.

I have assembled the test, but the Display Screen has remained blank. I have done a test, but the Display Screen is blank. What is wrong?

If you have assembled the test and not applied urine to the test stick, eject the test stick and start again from step 2. If you have taken the test you may have missed the results display time. In this case, the result will appear for 1 minute when the Test Stick is ejected from the Digital Reader.

Do any medical conditions or drugs affect the test?

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 (Pergonal5) and Danazol (Danocrine6), may affect the result you see. If you are undergoing therapy with Clomiphene citrate (e.g., Clomid7 or Serophene8), please consult your physician 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 physicians before using this product.

Will oral contraceptives affect the results?

After using oral contraceptive, your cycle may be irregular and may take some time to stabilize again. You may wish to wait until you have had two normal periods before starting to use the FIRST RESPONSE™ Daily Digital Ovulation Test. Follow your physician’s advice on when to try to become pregnant.

If the FIRST RESPONSE™ Advanced Digital Ovulation Test  can determine my most fertile time, why can’t I use it for contraception (birth control)?

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 fertilized.
