Background
While a woman’s body continuously produces a small amount of luteinizing hormone (LH), there is a sudden increase of this hormone during the middle of the menstrual cycle, called LH surge. While basal LH concentrations before and after the surge are around 5-20 mIU/ml, LH levels from >30 to 100 mIU/ml are reached at peak times.
This increase of the LH level promotes the release of a mature egg from the ovary (ovulation). For most women, ovulation will occur within 24 - 36 hours after the first steep increase of the LH level. Immediately after the ovulation the egg is ready to be fertilised for a short time (appr. 12-24 hours).
With SERATEC® LH MAX, LH in the urine will be determined for a time period of 6 days. In this time SERATEC® LH MAX will detect if and when a LH surge occurs. The „most fertile days“ of the menstrual period start after this LH surge.
