Test for LH surge: The hormone LH surges in the blood about 36 hrs before ovulation, and in the urine about 24 hours before. Home kits are available to test for this; the kits must be followed precisely. A less precise method is to check the vaginal discharge; in general an increased volume of clear, stretchy, slippery mucus occurs pre-ovulation
