High Fertility Days Vs Ovulation
Timing: You may be peaking at a different time of the day. Some women peak in the morning and others in the evening. Try changing to time of day you are testing and see if that makes a difference first. ...Read more
Kinda sorta: Sperm can live for a few days inside the female body so you don't have to have sex just on your day of ovulation in order to conceive. In fact, you can have sex from several days before to several days after ovulation & still conceive. If your egg isn't fertilized, then 2 weeks after ovulation you'll have your menses. Therefore, you're least likely to get pregnant right around your menses. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Ovulated with 21mm follicle, timed intercourse but no pregnancy. This cycle going for iui... Will this increase the odds? Dh sperm count 38million..
Depends: Depends on your diagnosis. Iui may not improve pregnancy rates for all women (ie those that do not ovulate and partner has a normal sperm count during first few cycles of therapy) but is certainly beneficial for unexplained infertility, minimal endometriosis and some other diagnoses. ...Read more
43 ttc after tubal reversal, cleared to conceive. LH surge is 24-48 , I'm having a longer surge CD11- 16? confused about timing OD to conceive. Help!
Lh, help: LH monitoring is useful but not terribly precise. It does not matter how "long" the test is positive, ovulations typically happen 24-48 hours after the start of the surge. Unless your test says specifically otherwise, you should use this. Kindly, pregnancy is quite rare in 43 year olds (no more than 10-15%) so I'd talk SOON with a fertility doctor about what you can do. Good luck ...Read more
Testing for ovulation, high fertility readings for many days. On cycle day 28 I got peak fertility reading in the am and light bleeding hours later.
Irrregular cycles?: Hard to answer because I don't know your menstrual pattern. Do you consistently have 28-30 day cycles? Cycle day 28 is very late to get a peak reading. That implies that you have irregular cycles. Some women have chronically high LH levels all the time (PCOS) and those kits don't work well for them. There is a slight drop in estrogen levels around the time of LH surge so that could explain bleed. ...Read more
Male-low count (1.2mill), low motility (29%), high FSH (35). Will putting him on Clomid (clomiphene) & hCG help sperm--or stay away from Clomid (clomiphene) bc it raises fsh?
If a woman exhibits consistent "fallback rise" BBT chart w/2dpo temp dip, will IUI on 1dpo reduce chance of fertilization b/c hormone change day after?
Confusing: Sorry, it's kinda confusing what you are asking: "fallback rise" does not mean anything medically specific to me. Bbt is a sketchy way to time IUI under best of circumstances; i can say that 1 day after a certain ovulation (which BBT is not) would likely be late for conception. Iui strategy favors inseminating a little early rather than a little late. ...Read more
Have regular 28 day cycles.Usually ovulate on cd 18/19. This cycle fertility friend shows ovulation on cd 12.Would my period come earlier than cd 28?
Ovulation disorder: If this is a recurrent event (kit + on cd 18 to 19) your picture is one of subtle ovulation disorder with short luteal phase. This could be due to stress or called hypothalamic disorder or other causes including diminished ovarian reserve. You should have a thorough evaluation from a fertility specialist. You might benefit from some ovulation help with medication. Good luck. ...Read more

1st LH surge day 15, negative for LH day 16. Does that mean i'm ovulating on day 16? I typically get two days of LH but this time only one? Fertility?
Day 16 or 17: The lh surge goes up and down over about 24 hours. When you get two days of positive lh tests you are probably catching lh rising the first day and going down on the next day. It can be 24 to 36 hours from detecting the lh surge to ovulating, so you could ovulate on day 16 or up to day 17. Hope this helps. As you are doing iui, ultrasound monitoring of your cycle can help with timing IUI as well. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

40yo ttc. Day4 fsh=10.3 estradiol=78. Day 21 progesterone =6.4. Can i conceive naturally? 28 day cycles with positive opks on day 14.
Yes: Although fertility drops off in the late 30s, it appears that you are ovulating normally and your hormonal levels are ok. There is much more involved in conceiving a pregnancy, but given a good sperm count and normal tubal functioning, you should need no unusual measures to conceive...Might take longer at 40 than it did at 20 though. ...Read more

Does a rise in temperature confirm ovulation occured. Opk + and temp high day 13-24 of cycle, 6 months negative hpt?
Short luteal phase: With a +opk ovulation happens in 24 hrs and your temperature rises. A triphasic chart has 3 levels of temperatures:pre-ovulation (97.0 to 97.5), post-ovulation or luteal (97.6 to 98.6), and then a 2nd rise around 7-10 days after ovulation (3/10's - 4/10's over the luteal high). Some women with these charts turn out to be pregnant. But many do not. They should last 14 days, yours is 8 which is short. ...Read more
