The test kit doesn't actually detect ovulation. It identifies your lh surge that occurs before ovulation. There are usually 3 days between the surge and ovulation. It is recommended to avoid sex or use a barrier method for 7 days before and 5 days after. I think it can be combined with other information in charting cycle.
