How do I know if I am ovulating or not? My last period was on the 15th of december 2013.

Basal body temp: Some women feel ovulation as a one sided lower abdominal pain that can be a slight twinge or occasionally a more serious pain with tenderness that lasts 1-2 days. The traditional method to assess ovulation is to take your "basal body" temperature on awakening each morning - a slight rise in the BBT signals ovulation. Temperature is most reliable if you use a rectal thermometer. ...Read more

My LH surges are over 8 days long for the past 6 months with regular 29 day cycles. What could cause this, and how do I know when I am ovulating?

My LH surges are over 8 days long for the past 6 months with regular 29 day cycles. What could cause this, and how do I know when I am ovulating?

I am skeptical: that your LH surges are actually 8 days long if your cycles are regular. The OPK you are using is either misleading you or may be used incorrectly. The OPK is not intended to be used each day once you detect a surge, so I'd suggest strongly that after you get a + you stop using the OPK, it is not necessary or useful to keep testing. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Increases before ...: Spinnbarkeit is the 'stretchy' egg-white-like quality of cervical mucus which occurs before ovulation. You can estimate this by stetching some mucus between your thumb and pointer finger. After ovulation cervical mucus gets thick and is not stretchy. Using an ovulation predictor kit is more accurate than tracking mucus changes - if you have regular cycles, start testing on day 10. ...Read more
