Best Ovulation Kits And Fertility Monitors

For starters, ovulation is a critical stage in the female reproductive cycle where the ovum or egg is released from the ovary. It takes place in the middle of the menstrual cycle. This, however, differs with every woman. Once the egg is released by the ovary, it remains active/alive up to 24 hours. An intercourse on this very day or the next means a very high chance of conception.

Put in simple words, ovulation is indicative of the most fertile period in a woman’s menstrual cycle. In this article we have listed about some of the best ovulation kits and fertility monitors that will help you select the best one.

What Are Ovulation Prediction Kits?

“Ovulation prediction kits” or OPKs, commonly called ovulation kits are used to detect the exact day of ovulation for those women that undergo a treatment for infertility. Since these ovulation kits are available in the market, many educated women as well as those aware about the product, given the aggressive marketing campaigns run by a couple of brands, use them personally to either plan a pregnancy or prevent it.
