What is Estrogen Surge?
Estrogen, or oestrogen, is the primary female sex hormone. It is responsible for the development and regulation of the female reproductive system and secondary sex characteristics.
During ovulation there is the stimulation of the growth and thickening of the lining of the uterus. Estradiol levels peak, triggering the brain to release two hormones: a large surge of luteinizing hormone (LH), and a smaller surge of follicle stimulating hormone. This is considered the best period for conception.
Due to the hormonal change, the saliva also shows changes in the texture and a distinct fern-like pattern becomes visible in saliva.
How Fertile Focus Works?
Fertile Focus is a saliva based fertility test and can predict ovulation up-to 72 hours. Before ovulation women undergo an estrogen surge- high level of estrogen hormone. Fertile-Focus provides the highest quality, powerful 50x magnification lens for easily identifying these crystal “ferning” patterns. Which helps in predicting ovulation and for better conception.
