Abstract

Rheometric properties of cervical mucus were studied with the Ovutimer In 26 women. 14 women had regular menstrual cycles, 12 had menstrual irregularities and received treatment to induce ovulation. In 21 women (80.7 %) a significant correlation was found between the ovulation time as established by the luteinizing hormone surge, and ovulation time as established by the Ovutimer test. The instrument was found satisfactorily accurate in establishing the day of ovulation in almost all cases.
