Ovulation Kit

Ovulation kits help to detect ovulation. Ovulation is a normal physiological process where an egg gets released from the ovaries in women for fertilization. Ovulation usually occurs during the fourteenth day of the menstrual cycle. These kits determine ovulation by detecting the increase in luteinizing hormone (LH) in urine, and this is preceded by ovulation.
