Re: I'm really embarrassed to ask this....

They didn't come with instructions? Because they should. As far as I know, they work just the same as pregnancy tests.. you pee on one end of the stick and read the result in the middle. One line negative, two lines positive. I think it depends on how dark the second line is as to how close to ovulation you are, but not 100% sure on that.

Pee in a cup, dip the stick in, wait. For mine, when the test is as dark or darker than the control line, that's a positive. I test every 12 hours and keep them until I get a positive or until they go stark again. Unlike pregnancy tests, you shouldn't use FMU.

Mine are a different brand but they look like they'll be the same thing.
