Amil ovulation test is a self-made test in the comfort of your home without having to visit your doctor or laboratory. The test indicates days when you are most likely to become pregnant and detects an increase in luteinizing hormone (LH) levels in the urine.
The length of the menstrual cycle (length from the first day of bleeding to the day preceding the next bleeding) should be determined before the test begins. To determine the date on which the test should be run, refer to the table in the leaflet. If you find it difficult to determine the cycle length, you can start testing 11 days after menstruation. Tests should be performed for 5 consecutive days or until LH is detected. To get a good result: You should be testing at the same time, preferably between 10 and 20 hours, limit the amount of fluid taken 2 hours before the test to perform the test Do not use the first morning urine.

The urine sample should be collected in a clean, dry container. If you need to do the test later in the day, you can download and store the sample. The urine sample can be stored for up to 8 hours at room temperature and up to 24 hours in the refrigerator (leave the sample for about 30 minutes to reach room temperature after removing from the refrigerator.) Do not freeze the sample. Do not shake the container. If there is a precipitate let it fall. Use only urine from the top of the container to perform the test.
