These tests from Clearblue top our list for their accuracy, ease-of-use, and value for the cost. There are no lines to interpret: a smiley face appears when you’re at your most fertile (when your Luteinizing Hormone or LH surges). They promise 99 percent accuracy, and it takes just three minutes for results to appear. There are 20 tests included in the kit. To use, urinate on one of them then insert it into the reusable monitor for your results.

Best Budget: Wondfo 50 Ovulation Test Strips and 20 Pregnancy Test Strips Kit (50 LH + 20 HCG)

These ovulation tests from Wondfo have neither bells nor whistles, but they will help you determine when you’re most fertile. There are 50 strips included, so they’ll last you quite a while. To use, you collect some urine and dip in one of the strips and in three to five minutes. It will let you know if your LH is surging, meaning your chances of conception are at their highest. Bonus: this pack also comes with 20 pregnancy test strips.

If you like the latest and greatest technology for every aspect of your life, then this monitor from Clearblue may be the right choice for you. It helps you detect not only your LH levels, like most ovulation tests, but your estrogen as well and gives you a rating each day that evaluates your fertility—low, high, or peak. It promises to identify three times more fertile days per month for women, thereby increasing their odds of conceiving a baby. It also stores your cycle information for up to six cycles, so you can compare and look for any patterns or differences.

To use, you push a button each month when your period begins, then each day thereafter the monitor will tell you want to do. Some days it will instruct you to use a test stick (sold separately). After five minutes, you’ll get a reading letting you know how fertile you are then.

Best Strips: PREGMATE 50 Ovulation LH and 20 Pregnancy HCG Test Strips

If you don’t want to mess with a monitor, these ovulation strips from Pregmate provide a straightforward way to determine when you’re at your most fertile. They measure your LH and let you know when you’ll be having a surge. The number of tests you'll need each month will depend on the length of your cycle, but this kit contains 50 tests, so you’ll be set for a while. It also includes 20 strips to test for pregnancy, which is a nice bonus.

Best App: Easy@Home 50 Ovulation Test Strips and 20 Pregnancy Test Strips Kit

Trying to get pregnant? Of course, there’s an app for that. This kit from Easy@Home works much like other ovulation predictor kits in that you dip the test strips in urine and wait to see if your LH level is surging, meaning your chances of getting pregnant soon are at their peak. It comes with 50 ovulation tests and 20 pregnancy tests as well.

What sets this kit apart is that you can also download the company’s app and get digital test results right on your phone. It also allows you to track your symptoms and cycle, so you have the best picture possible of your fertility.

Best Saliva-Based: Maybe Baby At-Home Reusable Saliva Ovulation Tester: Fertility Indicator

While most ovulation tests use urine to detect your LH levels, this one from MaybeBaby uses your saliva to measure your estrogen and salt levels. To use, you place a bit of saliva on the lens of the device, then let it dry. If you see a fern-like pattern, it indicates that you’re at your most fertile. You don’t have to purchase any test strips, and the device is about the size of a tube of lipstick, so it’s easy to throw in your purse on your way out the door.

Best for Travel: ClinicalGuard 40 Ovulation Test Strips & 10 Pregnancy Test Strips Combo

These individually wrapped test strips from Clinical Guard are great for getting results on the go. This set comes with 40 ovulation test strips and 10 pregnancy test strips, which are wrapped in different colors. They work like most other test strips—you collect your urine, dip in the strip, then wait about five 5 minutes for results. The darker the line, the more fertile you’re likely to be.

Best Ovulation and Pregnancy Test Kit: Best Ovulation and Pregnancy Test Kit from iProvèn

While tracking your ovulation cycle, you'll also want to track whether or not you’re pregnant if you're trying to conceive. This kit from iProven contains tests for both. In all, there are 50 ovulation test strips and 20 pregnancy test strips (both promise 99 percent accuracy), so this set will go the distance.
