Proov is the first and only FDA-cleared test that measures PdG over multiple days to confirm successful ovulation. If healthy ovulation has occurred, PdG levels rise in the second half of the cycle, or luteal phase, after suspected ovulation. Proov works by measuring PdG, the urine metabolite of progesterone, on days seven, eight, nine, and ten after suspected ovulation. If a woman gets positives during this window, then great — she can feel confident that she successfully ovulated that cycle! And if tests never go positive or don’t stay positive throughout the window? That could indicate lack of ovulation or “weak” ovulation, both of which can often be fixed through simple medications or supplements rather than more invasive treatments like IVF. In some cases, natural solutions can do the trick as well.
Regardless of results, Proov provides powerful information that can help couples move forward by either ruling out or detecting ovulatory problems that might make it more difficult to conceive.
Instead of trying things that may or may not get you closer to your goal, confirming healthy ovulation is a science-based, actionable step you can take on your TTC journey. With Proov, you can see the full fertile cycle and be empowered with more valuable information sooner.
