Yes: Ovulation predictor kits detect luteininzing hormone (lh) that accompanies the release of an egg but are inaccurate in some women. Basal body temperature (bbt), pain (mittelschmerz) and cervical mucous may also represent ovulation but vary widely. Ultrasound or electronic aids (clearblue easy, ovwatch or ovcue) are also available. However, only pregnancy is an absolute indicator of ovulation.
