Thank you for your question,

For your information, this is a home-use test kit to predict ovulation by looking at patterns formed by your saliva. When your estrogen increases near your time of ovulation, your dried saliva may form a fern-shaped pattern. However, this test may not work well for you. Some of the reasons are

  • not all women fern
  • you may not be able to see the fern
  • women who fern on some days of their fertile period, don’t necessarily fern on all of their fertile days
  • ferning may be disrupted by
    • smoking
    • eating
    • drinking
    • brushing your teeth
    • how you put your saliva on the slide
    • where you were when you did the test

There are various type of test kit available and each one of them has different level of accuracy depending on their usage. For instance, ovulation test kit urine based.
