Ovulation test kits also known as Ovulation Predictor Kits (OPK) can help you to identify your fertile window, but there is no evidence that using them will improve your chances of success when it comes to getting pregnant naturally.

There are two sorts of OPKs: those that test your urine and those that test your saliva.

• A urine-based OPK, or pee stick, detects the increase, or surge, of a hormone called LH that occurs about one to two days before ovulation. A small amount of LH is always present in your blood and urine. But in the days before ovulation, the amount increases by about two to five times.

• Saliva-based OPKs test your saliva for rising salt levels. As oestrogen levels rise, the salt content of your saliva increases too. Two major benefits of a saliva-based opk is the fact that it’s a one time purchase, as the lens can be washed and reused, and the fact that it’s convenient to use at any place or any time. You don’t have to wait for a full bladder, and you’re never going to run out of saliva!

Both type of OPKs are easy to find. You can get them at Guardian or Watson stores across Singapore.

PS: If you already have a microscope and slide at home, for whatever reason, you can test your saliva as well!

PPS: Most doctors prefer the urine test to the saliva test.
