First and Only Ovulation 20 Stick Test to Help Women Track Most Fertile
Days Throughout Entire Month
PRINCETON, N.J., Feb. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Trying to predict the best time to conceive can be difficult, and most home ovulation tests provide only a handful of chances to identify the two most fertile days of a woman's cycle. But now there's a simpler way of tracking the most fertile days: The new FIRST RESPONSE Daily Ovulation Test includes 20 testing sticks instead of just seven, so women can predict throughout the whole month the important two days when they are most likely to conceive.

"Some women find it difficult to know when they are ovulating, especially if they don't have a reliable, 28-day menstrual cycle," says Lisa Masterson, M.D., affiliated with Cedars-Sinai, St. John's and UCLA/Santa Monica hospitals. "If women can test themselves all month using one accurate kit, finding that window of opportunity becomes less of a guessing game."
The FIRST RESPONSE Daily Ovulation Test provides 20 chances to find the two most fertile days of a woman's cycle. When the test detects the LH Surge, it displays two similar dark pink lines or the test line is darker. The LH surge is present in urine 24-36 hours before ovulation, and signifies that a couple should try to conceive within the next day and a half.
"Starting a family doesn't always happen as quickly as a couple may
hope, and that can be stressful; but many couples simply aren't getting
their timing right," says Barbara Collura, Executive Director, RESOLVE: The
National Infertility Association. "A month's worth of tests is a useful way
