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

How do I know when I am ovulating by spinnbarkeit?

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

I have been off of the Depo-Provera shot since june, and i haven't had a period yet. How do I know when I am ovulating?

See Doctor: If you start having regular periods then you know you are likely ovulating. Depo effects often last 9 months but can last well over 1 year. So if you are trying to get pregnant you will likely need a fertility specialist in the short term unless you get lucky and resume periods now. ...Read more

Irregular: If your periods are irregular, you are not ovulating consistently. It can be very difficult to sort out when you ovulate with irregular cycles, but the chlamydia has no effect on cycle regularity. You may wish to sort this out with a gyn doctor in-office, doubt anyone can give you more spcifics online. ...Read more

I would like to know if I am ovulating, and what other tracking methods I can use if my LH surge is low to non-existent.

I would like to know if I am ovulating, and what other tracking methods I can use if my LH surge is low to non-existent.

If your LH surge: is "low to non-existent", then you may not be ovulating very often. Changing tracking methods won't improve your ability to track your fertile period when you don't have a fertile period. However, based on the info you provided, I can't say for sure. Please address this question with your Gyno. Best wishes. Dr. Anne ...Read more

That is not always the case, especially as the timing of the cycle is shorter or longer. You can check ovulation kits at home to get a better idea. They are sold at most pharmacies. ...Read more
