Frequently Ask Questions (FAQ) about TODAY
The Today test has a lowest sensitivity limit of 20mIU / ml hLH concentration and achieved an accuracy of 99% in laboratory tests and 96% in tests with laypeople.
After determining the appropriate start day, you can run the test at any time. Use of morning urine is not recommended. The period between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. is suitable. Test at about the same time each day. Decrease your fluid intake two hours before taking the test.
If no control line appears, repeat the test after you have verified that the test has been performed. If the problem persists, please notify the manufacturer.
Because ovulation does not always occur in the middle of the cycle, you may not notice the LH surge within the first seven days of the test. This may mean that your ovulation has not yet occurred. Proceed with testing.
Approximately 90% of women with a regular cycle can see the LH surge within 8-10 days of testing. If you haven’t, it may mean you haven’t ovulated that month. It can also mean that the ovulation time was before or after the start of the test as a result of an unusual cycle length. This is nothing to worry about, unusually short or long cycle times may occasionally occur.
I used the test to determine the time of ovulation for three months and had sexual intercourse accordingly, but did not become pregnant. What can I do?
It is not uncommon for it to take several months to become pregnant. The biological probability of getting pregnant in a given month is only about 23%. Many factors affect your ability to get pregnant even if you had intercourse at the most fertile time. If you still haven’t had any success after several months, please contact your doctor.
If you are already pregnant, recently pregnant, or are going through menopause, you may get misleading results. Some drugs such as Menotropine or Danazol® can affect the test results. Please consult your doctor for details.
