Most home ovulation tests identify the 2 peak fertility days during a woman's cycle by detecting the surge in luteinising hormone (LH) that triggers ovulation. The Clearblue Fertility Monitor not only shows these 2 peak fertility days, but ALSO identifies additional high fertility days when you can conceive.
Understanding Ovulation and Your Menstrual Cycle
The menstrual cycle is the process during which your body prepares for pregnancy. Hormone changes during the cycle trigger the ovaries to release an egg.
The eggs are contained within fluid-filled cavities called follicles. Both ovaries have many follicles, each containing an egg. During the first part of the menstrual cycle, one of the follicles prepares to release an egg. This follicle produces increasing amounts of estrogen, which causes the lining of the uterus to thicken.
A high estrogen level triggers the surge of another hormone, luteinising hormone (LH). Ovulation normally occurs 24 to 36 hours after the LH surge when the follicle ruptures, releasing an egg.
The egg can be fertilised for up to 24 hours after ovulation. If fertilisation does not occur then estrogen levels will gradually fall. The lining of the womb is shed and the menstrual flow begins, marking the start of the next cycle.
How does the Clearblue Fertility Monitor work?
The Clearblue Fertility Monitor consists of Test Sticks and a hand-held Monitor. Together these identify changes in the hormones that control your fertility. The Monitor records your personal cycle to build up a complete and accurate picture of your most fertile days.
The Clearblue Fertility Monitor gives you comprehensive, personal information about your cycle that is unique to you.
You can relax as the Clearblue Fertility Monitor will count the days and tell you which days to test, when you are having High and Peak Fertility days and it will even warn you when your period is due. This allows you to prepare for your next cycle, or, if you think your period is late it may be that you are pregnant.
You can find out if you are pregnant by using a pregnancy test such as Clearblue which gives you a clear result and is more than 99% accurate when used from the day your period is due.
How can the Clearblue Fertility Monitor Maximise Your Chances of Getting Pregnant?
The Clearblue Fertility Monitor detects the days in each cycle when you are most fertile, and are therefore more likely to get pregnant.
It monitors the hormones: estrogen and lutenising hormone (LH).
High estrogen is associated with the appearance of ‘fertile mucus', which is thin and slippery. Sperm can swim more easily through this mucus and can survive in it for several days. If you make love during this time, there may still be sperm present several days later, when you release an egg. When the Clearblue Fertility Monitor detects a rise in estrogen, it displays High Fertility status.
A high estrogen level triggers the surge of LH. Ovulation normally occurs 24 to 36 hours after the LH surge when the follicle ruptures, releasing an egg. Detection of the LH surge indicates that you are about to release an egg, and you are at Peak Fertility.
When your Monitor asks you to perform a test, you remove a FertilityTest Stick from its protective wrapper and use it immediately.
- You take a sample of your urine by holding the Sampling end of the Fertility Test Stick pointing downwards in your urine stream for 3 seconds only.
- Alternatively, you can collect a sample in a clean, dry container and hold the Sampling End in the urine for 15 seconds.
- It's important to use the first urine after you wake up, as this contains the highest concentration of hormones.
- Next, keeping the Fertility Test Stick pointing downwards, you take the cap off the handle and place it over the ‘wet' end of the Fertility Test Stick. You are now ready to insert the Fertility Test Stick in the Test Stick Slot of the Monitor as shown in the in-pack Instruction Booklet.
- When you have inserted the Fertility Test Stick correctly, the Test Stick Symbol will flash for approximately 5 minutes while the Monitor reads and interprets the information from your Fertility Test Stick.
- After approximately 5 minutes, the Monitor will ask you to remove the Fertility Test Stick, which you can throw away.
- The Monitor will now display your fertile status.
The Clearblue Fertility Monitor is suitable for women whose natural cycle normally lasts between 21 and 42 days.
The majority of women will need 10 Test Sticks in each cycle. However, women with irregular or long cycles may have to use 20 Test Sticks each cycle in order to detect their most fertile time.
Certain medical conditions and medications can adversely affect the performance of the Clearblue Fertility Monitor. Women who have menopausal symptoms, polycystic ovarian syndrome, impaired liver or kidney function, are pregnant or have recently been pregnant (even if not carried to full term), may get misleading results.
Similarly misleading results may be obtained by women using antibiotics containing tetracyclines, hormonal treatments (e.g. hormonal contraception, hormone replacement therapy), fertility treatments containing human Chorionic Gonadotrophin (hCG) or Luteinising Hormone (LH), or any treatment that might affect their cycle.
Clomiphene citrate may elevate estrogen levels and this may result in High Fertility being declared early in the cycle and more High Days being displayed, and in some cases the Monitor may not show Peak Fertility even when ovulation occurs. We therefore recommend that women taking clomiphene citrate consult their doctor for advice before using the Clearblue Fertility Monitor.
Always read the manufacturer's instructions for any medication that you are taking before conducting a test.
Women who have recently been breastfeeding, using hormonal treatments (e.g. hormonal contraception, including emergency contraception, fertility treatments, hormone replacement therapy), or any other treatment that might affect their cycle, may wish to wait until they have at least two natural menstrual cycles in a row (each lasting 21-42 days), before using the Clearblue Fertility Monitor.
Women who have recently been pregnant (even if not carried to full term) may still have hCG in their bodies. HCG can adversely affect the performance of the Clearblue Fertility Monitor. Therefore they are advised to wait until they have had at least two natural menstrual cycles in a row (each lasting 21-42 days), before using the Clearblue Fertility Monitor.
Please Note: There are no products available that can guarantee success in achieving pregnancy. Clearblue Fertility Monitor has been designed to assist in conception. The Clearblue Fertility Monitor is designed to help you become pregnant and is NOT intended to be used for contraception.
