Do you ovulate the same day every month?

Not necessarily: You may not ovulate on the exact same cycle day each month, but most women tend to follow a similar pattern.

So in a 28 day cycle day 13/14. That means sperm causes pregnancy days eight to fourteen. Simple. Not complicated. ...Read more

Why is my LH surge last 72 hours not the normal 36 hrs? I ovulate every month

Why is my LH surge last 72 hours not the normal 36 hrs? I ovulate every month

It doesn't: I'm assuming you're using ovulation prediction kits. Once your surge happens it takes a period of time for the LH to go back down below a level where it goes below the test levels indicated to be positive. I addition if you are checking the LH very often you will pick up a positive a bit before the actual surge. I tell my patients once you have a positive test to stop & save for the next cycle ...Read more

If my cycle length varies every month, could i ovulate more than once during the month?

If my cycle length varies every month, could i ovulate more than once during the month?

No: You ovulate only once per cycle, but if your cycle length varies, it is usually the first half of the cycle - the time from when your period starts until the day you ovulate - that varies. The second half of the cycle, from ovulation until your next period or pregnancy, should be about 13-14 days in most women. If your cycles are very long see a rei specialist (40 days +) or if ttc without success. ...Read more

Every month I have positive opk 7-10ish and then again like on 14-18. (just a example) do I ovulate 2 times? Which one do I trust?

Every month I have positive opk 7-10ish and then again like on 14-18. (just a example) do I ovulate 2 times? Which one do I trust?

OPKs: These just measure urinary leutinizing hormone. Take the number of days from start of one period to start of next and divide in half and count from day one of your period and start checking your OPKs 2-3 days before that day. Once you have a positive, you are likely ovulating in 24 hours. Save the left over kits for the next cycle. ...Read more
