No: it does not. hCG takes over for LH if pregnant to stimulate the corpus luteum, LH does not stay high.

A 48-year-old member asked:

Could you miss your LH surge and get pregnant somewhere in the middle?

Not sure - : If the lh surge did not occur, then ovulation would not have occurred, so pregnancy wouldn't be possible for that month. But if you mean, did you 'miss' the test for it (or was the test inaccurate) - and it occurred at another time - then yes, that would be possible.

Only one surge : Only one lh surge happens in a cycle. If you are using lh predictor kits the test only turn positive when the lh level reaches a certain concentration. If you are getting positive and negative test then the levels may be fluctuating in and out of the tests detection.

Do you mean: do you mean high LH surge because without the surge no ovulation happened which means pregnancy is extremely unlikely
A 43-year-old member asked:

Can i get pregnant without an LH surge?

Probably not: The lh surge is the trigger for ovulation, if you do not ovulate you cannot conceive. If you are testing for the lh surge and your test is negative, be patient as those tests can miss the lh surge over 33% of the time. So just because the predictor was negative doesn't mean the lh surge did not occur and you still could ovulate and conceive.
