Estrogen Level After Ovulation
Why do I have a low temperature after ovulation? Is this due to my progesterone or estrogen levels being high or low? I have spotting during my cycle.
Is it possible to have estrogen surges during the luteal phase? Particularly about 3 days after ovulation?
Yes: There is commonly a "secondary" estrogen surge during the luteal phase produced by the corpus luteum, although Progesterone is the larger surge during this time. This secondary estrogen phase is responsible for the one to two days of "fertile" cervical secretions and lower basal body temperatures and this tends to occur several days after ovulation. ...Read more
No ideal: There is no ideal: there is too low, normal, and too high. Note the first Estradiol peak is the day before lh surge and ranges from roughly 50-to150. The e2 level on the day of lh surge is a bit lower, but also has a spread spanning about 100 points. ...Read more

9dpo & i have not had my usual symptoms. Concerned I may not have ovulated. Would I be having an estrogen surge? Symptoms?
Ovulation: Ovulation occurs about 14 days before your menstrual cycle. You can use a home ovulation kit if you are trying to conceive and having problems timing intercourse around ovulation. You can do a Progesterone blood test 7 days after suspected ovulation to confirm. Neither of these are necessary unless you are having problems getting pregnant ...Read more
I had ov bleed evry mth, dr gav me estrogen 8mg/day for 7 days. Bbt shows no spike, I ovulate regularly before this. What happen?
When you ovulate, does that mean you are
producing a normal amount of estrogen and
progesterone? Compared to not ovulating.
Ovulation tests shows high days and peak day. High is for an increase in estrogen. Could I get a false high if I'm already pregnant?
False high: Unlikely, but surely your obstetrician is checking you regularly. ...Read more
Last week my hCG went down to 8. For past 6 days ovulation tester has been giving me high reading which shows surge in estrogen. Is this normal?
Can be: So it sounds like you had some type of miscarriage. All your hormones will fluctuate at that time and may vary a lot. The ovulation tester measure LH which can vary as well. You are not ovulating at this time due to the miscarriage. So you really need to wait till your hcg value is zero then when you get a period the tests will work again ...Read more

Progesterone: Ovulation can be tested by doing a blood Progesterone test half-way through the 2nd part of the menstrual cycle -- the luteal phase. Schedule a visit with an Obgyn and this test can be scheduled. Conclusions regarding ovulation can not be made from the information you mentioned in the question ...Read more
Blood test on CD 21 — LH 10, progesterone 67, estrogen 887. Have I ovulated? When did I ovulate? Thanks heaps
On cabergoline not for tumor, will it increase
progesterone & estrogen as I begin to ovulate more consistently.?
Why cabergoline: If it's not a tumor, it means that the tumor is too small to find or you have an elevated prolactin for another reason such as psychiatric meds. Otherwise, there's no need to take cabergoline. If your prolactin is elevated, and then lowered with cabergoline, you may have improvement in hormone secretion and more normal ovulation and possible fertility. ...Read more
I haven't ovulated since november, follicles become cysts or don't grow, progesterone and estrogen work normal, what is my problem?I miscarried last year

I took Clomid (clomiphene) 9th cycle 3-7 I took OPK cd10neg and cd11 was high peak can I still ovulate if I did not have an estrogen surge according to clear blue?
Yes: OPKs do not work for all women. But yes, you can ovulate even if you do not detect peak estrogen levels. Rather than rely on OPKs, maybe it's time to see a specialist so they can perform sonograms. Sonogram monitoring is a much better way to see if the Clomid (clomiphene) is causing follicle growth. Plus, you've been on Clomid (clomiphene) for 9 months. It's time to move on to more advanced treatments. ...Read more
Ovulation suspected, cervix high and soft slightly open, but no ewcd, instead watery clear discharge. Does this indicate low estrogen/ infertility?
Not likely: Low estrogen would actually usually cause a scant thick cervical mucus. You could always consider asking your doctor to do a post-coital test and look for cervical mucus ferning as well. However, with the availability of ovulation prediction kits over the counter I would probably suggest using those first. ...Read more
How likely is ovulation if I missed 2 birth control pills in a row during the second week? (Doubled up after missing) my pill has 0.35 mg estrogen.
Possible : That's why you must scrupously take those pills! They are much more effective if you actually use them as directed. You should abstain from any sexual activity for the rest of the month if you want to guarantee that you won't get pregnant this month. Be more careful in the future. We believe skipping one day is safe, two days is risky. ...Read more
When the egg matures and releases high estrogen, brain starts releasing LH that trigger ovulation. Clomid (clomiphene) is estr receptr. How come estr surge possibl?
Question?: Each month, fsh is produced that recruits eggs which produce estrogen. The rise in estrogen eventually triggers the lh surge and ovulation. Clomid (clomiphene) is a weak "anti-estrogen" and tricks the brain into over-stimulating the ovaries and increases changes of ovulation, to put it simply. Your question is worded poorly, but I hope this is a good answer for you. ...Read more
Clomid (clomiphene) help to increase FSH and LH to trigger ovulation, FSH and LH produce estrogen for lining, but why some drs say Clomid (clomiphene) will thin lining?
Antiestrogen: Clomid (clomiphene) works by blocking estrogen in your brain and pituitary gland. This makes the hormones rise which stimulate your eggs to grow. Unfortunately, it also blocks estrogen at the cervix and at your uterine lining. This can harm cervical mucus and make your uterus less receptive. ...Read more

After confirmed ovulation what can delay my period? I'm 15DPO, took clomid (clomiphene) 3-7, on progesterone & estrogen until AF/BFP. All tests neg. Usual LP 12-13
That's a lot of: Abbreviations, so I'm going on "educated guesses" and assumptions. After you took the clomid (clomiphene) and confirmed ovulation, were you on estrogen & progesterone until you started your period? I assume your Luteal Phase (LP) is 12-13 days (normal) but I'm not sure what the BFP means when you said all tests were negative. The estrogen & progesterone may have be the cause of the delayed period. ...Read more
