How long will my nipples be tender post ovulation?

Should end w/flow

Ovulation
Minor cyclical breast discomfort is normal. It will likely dissipate with the onset of your menstrual flow. It usually involves both breasts and is more commonly diffuse. It is caused by normal hormonal changes associated with ovulation that stimulate the proliferation of normal glandular breast tissue and result in pain. Being on oral contraceptive pills can also cause it.

24 Hours

If l got my period every 26 days what are possible days of ovulation? ?? And are there any signs of getting ovulation? ? How many days eggs live

Probably ovulating

Ovulation
You are probably ovulating on the 12th day. There are kits you can by at the pharmacy to test for ovulation (they look like home pregnancy tests). You can also look for very stretchy clear mucus from the cervix, which occurs right around ovulation. If you take your temperature every morning before you get out of bed, you will also see a rise of about a degree. The egg will live about 24 hours.

Can your eggs ovulate without trigger?

Often yes

Ovulation
Women with normal cycles ovulate every month without trigger. Women using Clomid about 80% will ovulate without trigger. Women using injectable fertility drugs and doing IVF almost never will ovulate without trigger. The trigger is used mainly to pinpoint the correct timing in many women.

What OTC medicine can I get to increase eggs at ovulation? :)

None really

Open-uri20121014-15591-nr0aj4
Ovarian hyperstimulation is not an OTC treatment. OH has risks and must be monitored by a professional. Further, you may need other help and OH may not be successful alone. See a fertility specialist and get counseling and advise to proceed safely.

How does FSH cause a woman not to produce eggs during ovulation?

FSH stims follicles

Fever
As the name implies, FSH, Follicle Stimulating Hormone, stimulates the growth of follicles in the ovary that contain eggs. Suppressing FSH can cause a woman not to produce an egg. This can occur with stress, weight loss, intense prolonged exercise, dieting, travel, birth control pills, and medications like leuprolide or ganirelix.

Is ovulation bleeding a sign of fertility and or healthy tubes and eggs?

No

Ovulation
It does not really signal fertility. In fact, due to fluctuations in hormones, it is more likely to be a sign of infertility. That being said it usually does not affect your chances of becoming pregnant if you have otherwise regular periods. It is not related at all to the tubes. Sometimes it can be sign of low hormone levels which can be a result of poorly functioning ovaries/eggs.
