Doctor why my period is don't missing even my ovulation predictor is negative? If Every women have getting every month correct ovulation?

Usually: I believe this answers your question- (if not please re submit). Periods that are predictably regular are most often associated with ovulation, however you can have anovulatory cycles with "relatively" regular periods.

What are drs really preaching that every woman has a 14 day luteal phase. That is complete nonsense! Can a fever right at ovulation delay it?

What are drs really preaching that every woman has a 14 day luteal phase. That is complete nonsense! Can a fever right at ovulation delay it?

Preaching: My older brother in Australia at the time while I was in USA left a message that my Dad was about to go home after 8 days in hospital. I called the doctor the next day and he simply said "Oh! You didn't know he died last night! " I have been a doctor in USA since 1974 and hopefully I don't practice nonsense.
If you have a fever you MUST see your primary doctor.
Please let me know how things develop ...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 your cycles are very long see a rei specialist (40 days +) or if ttc without success. ...Read more
