Does your LH stay high when you are pregnant?

Does your LH stay high when you are pregnant?

No: The "lh surge" precipitates ovulation, but once the oocyte is released (you ovulate), LH drops until the next cycle (which won't occur again for 9 months if the oocyte is fertilized and pregnancy occurs).

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

Can your LH level be high in early pregnancy with pcos?

Can your LH level be high in early pregnancy with pcos?

Prob not: That is not a test that anyone would do. It does not have any practical purpose. I can not think of a reason why it would be high but also no one would ever run that test during pregnancy.

Unlikely: With pof you will not get pregnant but occasionally the ovaries will 'wake up' and start to function again. If the do, you could become pregnant.

Iam 22 not married nor pregnant. The test show that my LH hormone is high. What is the reason? How does it affect my life in future like pregnancy

Depends: Lh levels vary during the menstrual cycle. If it was done mid cycle, it would be high associated with ovulation. If your periods are regular, you should not worry about the level.

I have high LH levels though not ovulating could this be a sign of pregnancy? Period due in 10 days, too early for a urine test

I have high LH levels though not ovulating could this be a sign of pregnancy? Period due in 10 days, too early for a urine test

Consider PCOS: High lh certainly suggests that one is ovulating, . Though if ovulation is not evidenced by ultrasound evaluation, we often see a high lh in blood and even with lh testing in women who have irregular cycles, excessive hair growth, acne (pcos) who have chronic high lh levels and falsely see positive urine tests as a result. This is especially noted in lean pcos women.

Hi, I am 12 weeks pregnant and just had a look at my latest blood results, my LH is elevated at 10.4 what does this mean?

Being Pregnant: Labs are not one result. They are the whole report. You are pregnant. This is not in any way abnormal. Your physician would be doing something or ordering more tests if there was a problem. Right?

Hi Iam currently 5weeks pregnant bhtc high but hasn't doubled in 48 hours what does this mean?

Hi Iam currently 5weeks pregnant bhtc high but hasn't doubled in 48 hours what does this mean?

Possible miscarriage: "doubling" is a misnomer. HCG should go up by atleast 50% to suggest a normal pregnancy in 48 hours. If it did, its good, If it didnt, you are likely to have a miscarriage Best wishes Dr M

If my chances of being pregnant are between 20-25 percent and I am 22 years old, is that high?

If my chances of being pregnant are between 20-25 percent and I am 22 years old, is that high?

Who told you that???: At your age that is horrible, u must have some serious problems, you need to get a 2nd opinion from an infertilty specialist and if u already saw an infert specialist (not a regular obgyn who may do some infertilty) then u shoudl see another one for a 2nd opinion, good luck.

Should your BBT remain high all day if pregnant? I wake up with high temps and then later it is low.

Should your BBT remain high all day if pregnant? I wake up with high temps and then later it is low.

Take a test: Body temperature is not a reliable way to determine pregnancy. If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. If your temperature changes were related to pregnancy then this implies that your hormone level is high enough for detection.

I'm 6 month's pregnant... I have to go get my fiance up in a high elevation. I was wondering that bad?

I'm 6 month's pregnant... I have to go get my fiance up in a high elevation. I was wondering that bad?

PG & high altitude: Pregnancy at high altitude can be challenging for the fetus as the percentage of oxygen in the atmosphere drops considerably above the 5000 and up foot level. As the oxygen levels decline the amount of oxygen transfer to the fetus declines with resultant uterine cramping and contractions with ;possible early labor & delivery. NICU units (except Colorado & Utah) are usually not present.

HARD TO UNDERSTAND?: You mean you have to move to high elevation or travel to mountain. It is hard to understand what you mean by have to get your fiance up in high elevation. You can resubmit your question or even better ask your OB Doctor if you can

I have high dhea how can I get pregnant?

I have high dhea how can I get pregnant?

Unprotected sex: Ignore high DHEA. If you want to get pregnant, engage in unprotected sex. See your FamilyDoc for preconception counseling & to review chronic conditions & medications. Start taking Folic Acid now. Stop drinking alcohol now. Eat right. Exercise. Get plenty of sleep. Then have fun (sex). But must be patient for up to a year. If no pregnancy after 12mo, then see Reproductive Endocrinologist for tests

How can I get pregnant if I have high dhea?

How can I get pregnant if I have high dhea?

Definitely Possible: I can not answer the question as to how, but you can get pregnant with an elevated DHEA (or DHEA-S). The answer as to how depends on the cause and there are several. You need to see a doctor experienced in disorders of androgens, find the cause & then get treated. I rec starting with an Endocrinologist or Reproductive Endo. Don't panic, first find out if there is even a problem & go from there.

What's considered a high BBT to confirm pregnancy?

What's considered a high BBT to confirm pregnancy?

0.3 degrees F: A sustained rise (3 days or more) mid cycle of 0.3 degrees fahrenheit over baseline is considered significant and a sign of ovulation. If that rise is sustained for 16 days you should do a pregnancy test, but I would not consider it sufficiently reliable to "confirm" pregnancy.
