Mostly both men and women spend a lot of time understanding their fertility count or fertility score. In this article, we will focus on the understanding of male and female fertility cycle and the best way to test your fertility at home.
Women’s fertility depends upon their ovulation period. It is important to know your ovulation period to increase the chances of conception. The ovulation period depends on your menstrual cycle. In adult women, the menstrual cycle can range from 21 days to 35 days. Most of the women are not able to conceive due to the lack of knowledge about their ovulation period. Ovulation doesn’t occur all through your menstruation period. It occurs for certain days during your menstrual cycle. It sounds a bit complex, but don’t worry as there are ovulation testing kits available in the market. So now you can test your fertility by using ovulation testing kits at your home.
Check Ovulation-period at home
There are many ovulation kits available in the market. You can purchase one from a qualified medical store. You need to go through and follow all the instructions written on the ovulation testing kit. In these instructions, you need to either collect your urine in a sterile container or you can directly pour your urine on the testing strip as you pee. If the testing card displays a positive sign that means the amount of LH (luteinizing hormone) is increasing and can lead to ovulation in the next 24 to 36 hours. In this test, your LH can increase up to 5 times than the normal LH count. This is the best time for the women to have intercourse with their partner to increase the chances of her conception.
In some women after receiving the positive ovulation results still, their body is not able to formulate an egg, This type of symptom is known as LUFS (Luteinized Unruptured Follicle Syndrome). If this symptom occurs then you can consult a Gynecologist.
Modern science had made the complex male fertility testing possible at home. Male fertility directly depends on the quality of semen, which can be evaluated as per the number of normal shaped sperm count and its mobility value. The formation of sperm is done by testosterone. The creation of sperms by testosterone is not enough to indicate a healthy fertility count. Your healthy sperms should be able to travel effectively during the intercourse and should be added to the count in your ejaculated semen. The quality of the sperm can be calculated on the bases of the following factors.
