  • I'm not sure b/c I've never used them. Have you tried looking on the tests' website?

  • I would say to read the package insert. If it's still unclear (because we all know that sometimes the "instructions" are no help), then I would check the website or call the 1-800 number. Good luck!

  • Usually as you see the lines about the same darkness that's when you're about to or are ovulating.

  • Yes the day of and the day after would help cover your ovulation. I always did a total of three days and eventually it worked.
