Accurately predicts ovulation1
The Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test range is over 99% accurate in detecting the urinary luteinizing hormone (LH) surge that occurs 24-36 hours prior to ovulation.2
Typical LH surge during a menstrual cycle.
Proven method of detecting peak fertility
Variation exists with regard to total menstrual cycle duration between and among women, and such variation appears to result from changes in the early, follicular phase of the cycle.3 Because of these differences in follicular phase length, the day of the LH surge varies from woman to woman and from cycle to cycle, making it challenging to accurately detect the timing of peak fertility. Indeed, in nearly half of women aged 18-40 years, cycle lengths vary by 7 days or more.4
It is known that many women have low levels of LH present in their urine throughout their cycles. The Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test therefore sets a personalized threshold level for each woman, by measuring the change in LH level from their personal baseline.
Digital read, for greater accuracy
Reading the results of traditional line tests can be difficult for users, this was demonstrated in a study that showed as many as one in four women misread the result from a traditional ovulation test.5 Digital results take away this potential human error and data shows that when compared to traditional line tests, the Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test is more accurately read by consumers.5
No LH surge detected – the woman should continue to test the following day.
LH surge detected – this is the most fertile time of the woman’s cycle. If she has intercourse within the next 48 hours, it will maximize her chance of becoming pregnant.
The Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test is available in two pack sizes to allow women to buy a box of 10 Test Sticks (1 month supply) or 20 Test Sticks (2 month supply) and to accommodate the variability in women’s length of cycle. In addition, the Test Holder is reusable the following month should the user have Test Sticks left over from the current testing cycle.
Women should use the chart found in the pack insert to calculate when they need to start testing, based on their cycle length. A woman who does not know her cycle length is advised to wait one menstrual cycle, and note the length of this cycle, before using the Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test.
