This is a very simple method to know ovulation at home. Ovulation means the release of mature egg from ovary. This egg remains in fallopian tube for few hours to get fertilised. If fertilization takes place by a sperm then it moves in uterus where it implants and develops and grows as a baby. Ovulation is triggered by release of a hormone. This hormone is Luteinizing Hormone (LH). Ovulation test strip uses a dye to show presence or absence of this hormone.
