The clinical value of Clearplan home ovulation detection kits in infertility practice.

Author information

Department of Fertility and Reproductive Endocrinology, Royal Hospital for Women, Sydney, New South Wales.


A home ovulation testing kit, Clearplan, that detects the urinary luteinizing hormone (LH) surge was used by 32 patients on a donor insemination programme for 50 cycles to indicate when to first attend the clinic for a serum LH test to determine ovulation. Using Clearplan significantly reduced the number of clinic attendances (4.06 +/- 1.5) compared to the preceding control cycle (7.06 +/- 2.0 p less than 0.001). One serum LH peak was missed using Clearplan. Ovulation was predicted within 2 days of the serum LH surge in 77% of cycles. Home ovulation determination has the potential to reduce the stress and cost of fertility programmes.
