What is ovulation? Ovulation is the process that results in the release of one or more eggs from your ovary. Each month, between 15 and 20 eggs mature inside one of your ovaries. The largest is pushed out into the pelvic cavity and swept into the fallopian tube. Your egg only survives for between 12 hours and 24 hours if it is not fertilised. There’s only a small window each month during which you can conceive, typically no longer than about six days. This time leading up to ovulation is when you are most fertile (your fertile window). It’s possible for sperm to survive inside you for up to about seven days. But the healthiest sperm, with the best ability to swim in a straight line (motility), result from your partner ejaculating every three days to four days ideally, given that you’re trying for a baby, when you are having sex! Most conceptions result from having sex in the two days leading up to ovulation so to increase your chance of pregnancy, you need to ensure that you have sex at this time. An easy way to do this, is to try to have sex a couple of times a week throughout your cycle. Can ovulation kits help? Ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) can help you to identify your fertile window. Regular sex throughout your cycle is the best way to maximise your chances of conception. An OPK is a quick, easy and accurate way to predict ovulation in advance. It allows you to pinpoint your fertile window from the very first month. How ovulation kits work? Urine-based OPKs test your urine for an increase (surge) in luteinising hormone (LH). This happens one day 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. The 12 hours to 36 hours between the beginning of the LH surge and the moment when your egg is released is the most fertile part of your cycle. This is when you are most likely to conceive.
