Self-monitoring tests such as home pregnancy tests (HPTs) and ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) are widely available in local drugstores and pharmacies. However, the price of tests sold in stores is considerably inflated due to product resale turnover, transportation, and large overhead of the traditional retailing system supporting dozens of employees. Product marketing and packaging also raises the cost of tests sold in retail outlets.
The HPTs and OPKs that I sell are considerably cheaper because I don't operate with a lot of overhead, and the tests come with minimal packaging. However, despite their low price, you can rest assured that these tests are very sensitive and accurate.
The tests are bulk-packaged in original factory condition with no modifications, and they come with easy-to-use instructions. These products are made in Canada from US imported raw materials - hence being truly North American in origin! The shelf life of the tests is 2 years (an expiry date is stamped on each test), even though it has still shown great quality far beyond that. You are purchasing products with maximum expiry dates, rather than the products sitting in warehouses and aging on the retail shelves.
The test sold on this site are a no-name brand, and they possess 510k US FDA, Health Canada, Export Licenses, and Medical Device Licenses.
One Step LH Urine Ovulation Test is fast and easy-to-use. It is a qualitative test that predicts LH (Luteinizing Hormone) surge, and in turn, when you are likely to ovulate and conceive. Females who are trying to become pregnant may use this information to improve their chances of conception. Luteinizing Hormone is a hormone released by the pituitary gland, a small gland at the base of the brain. The hormone stimulates the ovaries to produce and release eggs each month during the menstrual cycle. The level of LH in the blood is highest before ovulation. This increase in hormone level is sometimes called a "surge". If fertility drugs are given to stimulate ovulation, an LH test can help determine the best time for sexual intercourse. The LH test may also be used to determine when eggs are mature enough to be surgically removed from the ovary as part of the in vitro fertilization process. LH tests may also aid in the diagnoses of polycystic ovary disease, premature ovarian failure, and menopause.
The tests detect LH in urine in a qualitative format with sensitivity of 25mIU/mL (International Standard Value) and specificity is 99.8%. Tests have an expiry date of 2 years and can be stored in a dry environment ranging from 2 to 30 degrees Celsius. Results are available in just minutes.
