There are a few ways to predict your ovulation. Most use ovulation predictor kits which test the LH levels in your urine. Others may use an ovulation watch, which is expensive, but can predict your fertility up to 4 days before your ovulation.
There is a happier median of the two, something that is less expensive and can predict ovulation more than 24 hours in advance.
The ovulation monitor is this happy median. The ovulation monitor works by detecting both your LH hormone AND your estrogen levels in your urine. Most monitors can tell by the levels in your urine if the day you are testing is either a "low", "high" or "peak" day of fertility.
The ovulation monitor works much like the ovulation watch. You start both the 1st day of your cycle and use it every day or every few days to tabulate the hormone levels in your body. As your hormones change while you're going through your menstrual cycle, these predictor tests take note, and once you hormone levels increase due to the onset of ovulation, these predictor tests can tell you the best time to have intercourse.
