A 24-year-old female asked:

Ovulation: Women with regular menstrual cycles, will ovulate on day 12 - 15 and within 24 - 48 hours after the OPK is positive. Since the test was positive today, you should ovulate within the next 36 hours. You may see symptoms that confirm ovulation such as change in cervical mucus, some discomfort . If the egg isn't fertilized, you will typically have your menstrual cycle 12 - 14 days after ovulation
A 38-year-old female asked:

PMS: Some of the symptoms you describe may be related to the hormonal changes that occur with the decline in hormonal levels beginning the days before your menstrual period starts. For some, it's worse than others but may be easy to manage with maintaining the hormone levels during this time.

IUD and bleeding: The IUD works by making the uterine lining thin. It may make your cycles irregular. However, it doesn't cause any changes in your hormone levels so it shouldn't cause weight gain. if you are comfortable using the IUD as a birth control method, i would monitor the weight gain and how much you are eating and see your doctor if it continues to be abnormal.
