What is the breakthrough ovulation rate when taking nortrel (norethindrone/ethynl estradiol 1/35) consistently and with perfect use?

Very minimal: If you are very consistent taking the bcp the pg rate is only 1 to 2% at the very most. Of course if you are taking other meds or antibiotics the pill absorption is affected and increases the failure rate. ...Read more

I missed 3 pills of Micronor (norethindrone) during my period; will I likely ovulate right away?

I missed 3 pills of Micronor (norethindrone) during my period; will I likely ovulate right away?

Hard to tell: Micronor (norethindrone) is a progestin-only (single ingredient) minipill. It is hard to tell if a woman taking Micronor (norethindrone) every day actually ovulates or not. This pill works in other ways to prevent pregnancy. She is probably more likely to ovulate if she is missing pills. If she misses some pills, she can use condoms for the next 2 days (if having sex)... while also taking the Micronor (norethindrone) every day. ...Read more

Don? T understand how do I know that I m ovulating?

Since my miscarrage in october I haven't been ovulating. Why?

If I don't take the conception pill at the same time everyday, what is the possibility that i'll ovulate?

If I don't take the conception pill at the same time everyday, what is the possibility that i'll ovulate?

Chance is low: It is best to take the birth control pill at about the same time each day. If the timing is off by some hours the chance of ovulation is very low. If a pill is 12-24 hrs late there is a small chance of ovulation. The chance increases if the pill is 1 or 2 or 3 days late. Take the pill at about the same time to be most effective, but don't worry if some hours off. ...Read more

I'm afraid I can't conceive im irregular I don't know when im ovulating and im afraid I messed up my wall?

Home ovulation tests or a blood test can be done to confirm. Clomid (clomiphene) is a commonly used medication to promote ovulation. Overweight patients with pcos may begin to ovulate after weight loss. ...Read more

Three days in a row of positive opks (nondigital). Temp didn't spike until two days after the THIRD day of pos opk. When did I ovulate?

Three days in a row of positive opks (nondigital). Temp didn't spike until two days after the THIRD day of pos opk. When did I ovulate?

Not specific: The spike noted in the urine is the LH surge, which occurs about 24 hours before ovulation. The temp change is very non-specific and can be affected by a lot of things. You can probably look back to see when ovulation occurred by when your period starts, which should be 14 days after you ovulate. ...Read more

Ttc I'm doing ovulation test strips all positive three days in a row two test a day to be sure test isn't false, what could this mean? Thank you.

Read instructions: The instructions on most ovulation kits will give specific recommendations for that brand. Ovulation occurs 12-48 hrs after the test turns positive. The hormone that it is detecting stays high so one expects the tests to stay positive. There is no reason to keep testing once it turns positive. Save your money. Have intercourse after the test turns positive ...Read more

Took an ovulation test & got a + result today. I didn't test the 2 days before & ran marathon yesterday. Am I still fertile and not ovulated yet?

Probably Fertile: The OPK becomes positive about 12-24 hours before ovulation. You should still be fertile when the test is positive. Extreme exercise such as marathon running can cause you not to ovulate but the test would be negative in that case. Also, the OPK is not always accurate and could be false positive because of dehydration. ...Read more
