Hey guys, can you conduct a fertility test at home?

To the best of my knowledge, there is only one fertility test that you can do from home. It is done using the ovulation kit. The predictor kit is mainly for measuring the levels of luteinizing hormone. The hormone gets detected in urine. The package is known to work among many women given that ovulation tends to set in some 10 to 12 hrs after the LH peaks, which happens either on the 14 or 15th day of your menstrual cycle in case the circle is 28 days.
How to use it: You pee on the provided stick and then wait for a line to appear. In case the color of the line is matching the shade shown on the instructions, then ovulation is imminent, this is due within 24 to 48 hrs. All kits have five sticks for use in five days, you can use them for as many days but always look out for the expiry date. They have a shelf life of two years. The best time to do the testing is in the morning, although testing can as well get done at any time of the day. To get the best results, you need to reduce the intake of fluids and do the tests at around the same time of the day.
By and large, you need to visit a fertility clinic and meet experts in matters fertility.

ust as with any at-home, urine-based test kit, you should be sure to follow the fertility test's instructions closely: FSH must be tested on day 3 of a woman's cycle to get an accurate reading of how much FSH her body must produce to develop a quality egg. Chances of becoming pregnant and having a healthy pregnancy are low without a viable egg.

During each cycle, a woman's body will try to develop a mature, healthy egg. As a woman ages, or due to problems such as autoimmune disorders (especially pituitary gland disorders), genetics, medications, some cancer treatments or environmental factors, her FSH levels begin to rise.
