Gyno visit saw no polyps but stil vaginal bleeding on days 19 to 21 of 25 day cycle. Ovulation bleeding maybe and no further follow up required?

Post ovulation bleed: Right before ovulation there is a drop in estrogen levels as the ovulation triggering rise in LH. This drop in estrogen can be enough to cause spotting and occasionally a period. If a saline sonogram to evaluate the uterine cavity is normal, it is not likely a problem. ...Read more

I have been on Clomid for three cycles my cycles are getting shorter and shorter with today being day one of this cycle that has left me with a 21 day cycle when they are normally 28 to 29 days is this normal if so when should I be ovulating?

I have been on Clomid for three cycles my cycles are getting shorter and shorter with today being day one of this cycle that has left me with a 21 day cycle when they are normally 28 to 29 days is this normal if so when should I be ovulating?

Discuss with Doc: Part of being prescribed Clomid (clomiphene) is the education that comes with it. Besides being taught the risk factors & side effects, you should have also been shown how to assess for ovulation, timing of intercourse, & when to take your pills. This is combined with ultrasound evaluation of the endometrium, follicles, & you shouldn't leave the office without a better game plan. See an rei if failed 3 cycles. ...Read more

My 1st day of menstrual 6/21~6/24 when should I expect to ovulate?

Ovulation: Hi,
part of it depends on what your typical cycle length is (from day 1 of one cycle to day 1 of the other). If you substract 14 from your average cycle length, that will help predict when you will ovulate.

So if you typically have a 28 day cycle and the first day of your menstrual cycle was 6/21, you could expect to ovulate 14 days later (7/5) +/- 1 day. ...Read more

Positive OPK 1-21 and 1-22 ovulation pain 1-22 what day will I most likely have ovulated?

Positive OPK 1-21 and 1-22 ovulation pain 1-22 what day will I most likely have ovulated?

Trust the pain: I would err on trusting the pain. But, if you are trying to get pregnant the issue is not the specific day, but getting sperm into the vagina on the five days before ovulation. So, whether ovulation occurs on the 21st or 22nd, you should be getting exposed to sperm on the 16th through the 22nd. ...Read more

Ovulation on day 21. Is it late? And does it means the egg quality is low? My cycle length usually about 34-36 days.

Ovulation on day 21. Is it late? And does it means the egg quality is low? My cycle length usually about 34-36 days.

Somewhat: Ovulating around day 21 can be somewhat abnormal for individuals. People do conceive this late though. Medications such as Clomid (clomiphene) or Femara can move the ovulation time more towards the beginning of the cycle. Hormonal evaluation should be considered to make sure there isn't anything that can be corrected such as low thyroid. ...Read more

Had a progesterone test done on day 21 came back today with a level of 36.2 and consistent ovulation what does this exactly mean?

Progesterone: That is a very good level. It does mean your pregnant, but you could be. Keep trying, if your not. The high level means you have a very healthy ovarian function. ...Read more

Using ovulation test strips to pinpoint my LH surge. Positive on 9/21 but my calendar says I ovulated on 9/19 I tested that day an got negative, help?

Using ovulation test strips to pinpoint my LH surge. Positive on 9/21 but my calendar says I ovulated on 9/19 I tested that day an got negative, help?

Mix n' match: Don't be surprised: you are mixing testing methods, none of which is (are) exact. If you checked cervical mucus you might get another answer, still. Generally the OPK is the most accurate test you can do at home; more reliable than the calendar method, and ultrasound is more reliable than opk. ...Read more
