Ovulation Predictor Kit (OPK) Testing Instructions
If you have an average cycle of 28-30 days in length, you should begin using your
OPK test sticks on Cycle Day 10. You should test once or twice a day at the same
time each day (preferable early morning and then again if you test twice daily before
5:00pm so you have time to call the office) until you receive a positive reading,
even if that means using 2 test stick packages per month.
Please be sure to read the entire instruction manual of the test kit you purchase
and call Jessica with any testing questions.
You should keep in mind the days that you need to have protected intercourse and
the days your partner needs to abstain from ejaculation at all based on your ovulations.
Jessica can help to plan these days with you.
TIPS FOR GOOD OVULATION TESTING!
1. Be sure to use an ovulation pedictor test kit that has a smiley face as the result.
The other type tests require you to interpret slight color differences so that may
cause you some confusion and give you dificulty in reading your test properly.
2. If you are unsure of your ovulation time, it is best to start testing a day or
two after your period ends in case you ovulate early and miss the ovulation day.
You may need 2 packs of test sticks to get you through the month. Be sure to test
everyday of the month until you get your positive.
3. If you know you are getting close to ovulation and are planning to come for services
that month, begin testing at night and in the morning...the sooner we have a postive,
the sooner you can contact Jessica and we can secure your travel plans, and appointment
4. Be sure to be texting Jessica the moment you have your positive! If you have
made your tentative appointment, and do not receive your positive, be sure to call
Jessica immediately as a 12 hour cancellation is required in order not to loose
your deposit. Staff will be in place even for a tentative appointment and it is
your responsibility to cancel the appointment with 12 hours notice.

you need to call the office by 7:00 am as well as Jessica’s cell phone by 8:00am

If you receive a positive test on Sunday, please
call Jessica’s cell phone that day so she can arrange your appointment for Monday
