How Many Days After Surge Will I Ovulate
How long after having a tubal sterilization Does it take to stop ovulating? I've been premenopausal since having the surgery done in 2011.
Depends: There is no correlation between tubal sterilization and cessation of ovulation. In other words, tubal ligation does not stop you from ovulating. It is debated if tubal sterilization affects ovarian blood supply and hence eventually the function of the ovaries which includes ovulation ...Read more
How soon after getting mirena (levonorgestrel) out do I ovulate? I have endometriosis but had a surgery to remove it ~4 weeks ago
Varies: It is possible to ovulate very soon after removing the Mirena (levonorgestrel). This is partially due to the fact that many women still ovulate with a Mirena (levonorgestrel) in place. I always warn my patients to use backup contraception as soon as the Mirena (levonorgestrel) is out and while they are waiting for their period to regulate. ...Read more
I had surgery 2 weeks ago, I had 1ovary removed, endometriosis, a lot of scarred tissues, can't concieve without vitro is it poss to have ovulate symptoms?
Endo and Ovulation: Endometriosis does not stop ovulation. Most of your fertility is because of the scar tissue. Removing an ovary also means that you lost 50% of the eggs. That means your fertility potential is lower and probably earlier menopause. Get amh & FSH levels and see an ivf specialist soon to understand your options better. Delay could mean lower ivf success. Good luck. ...Read more
If I miss only 1 birth control pill during the 1st week, take all of the 2nd week, will I ovulate during that time? I missed one pill due to surgery.
Why did my ovulation test pick up 2 lh surges about 5 days apart? Which time did I actually ovulate?
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
Took an ovulation test came back no LH surge detected! What does that mean? I have an app sayin I ovulate in 3 days! Help
28-30 day cycle. Took clearblue digital ovulation test (not advanced), & had LH surge detected on day 8 and 11. Why multiple days? & so early?
Variable: Ovulation tests must be done daily at the sam time and with making sure that you have the same urine concentration. A more concentrated urine will give you false positive ovulation test. So, please repeat it again daily till Day 16 or till it is consistently positive. In a 28 to 30 day cycle, you are most likely to ovulate Day 14 to 16. Please start testing only from Day 12 of your cycle next time ...Read more
I have had a positive LH surge from ovulation tests for 5 days. Is this normal? If not, what could the reason be? Cycle are typically 50 days.
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 more

Last week my hCG went down to 8. For past 6 days ovulation tester has been giving me high reading which shows surge in estrogen. Is this normal?
Can be: So it sounds like you had some type of a miscarriage. All your hormones will fluctuate at that time and may vary a lot. The ovulation tester measure LH which can vary as well. You are not ovulating at this time due to the miscarriage. So you really need to wait till your hcg value is zero then when you get a period the tests will work again ...Read more

When using the ovulation test kit to check for LH surge how many days does the LH surge shows and stops?
LH surge: LH is always present but spikes to much higher levels in the 12-36 hours before ovulation. It will then begin to decrease and return to normal baseline levels. This is why you stop testing after you get a positive result. Once you get a surge then you stop testing for that menstrual cycle ...Read more
Is it possible to have estrogen surges during the luteal phase? Particularly about 3 days after ovulation?
Yes: There is commonly a "secondary" estrogen surge during the luteal phase produced by the corpus luteum, although Progesterone is the larger surge during this time. This secondary estrogen phase is responsible for the one to two days of "fertile" cervical secretions and lower basal body temperatures and this tends to occur several days after ovulation. ...Read more

Opk said I didn't ovulate this month but had estrogen surge. Bright red blood cover tissue after bm 5 days before expected period, none on liner. Why?
Neg OPK Tu-Fr, Lh surge 4pm Saturday, no mature follicle visible on ultrasound 1pm Sunday, 2 smaller ones though. No BBT rise on Mondaymorning. EWCM for 3 days. Have I ovulated?
I have persistent Lh surge on OPK for 8 days. I had ovulation pain 4 days ago. We are trying to get pregnant. Can it be due to HCG and Lh similar?
They are similar: But I think you're asking why is your LH still positive on OPK. It stays positive for many days, that doesn't mean you're still about to ovulate. Ovulation typically occurs 24 to 36 hours after the first LH positive on OPK. Positive OPK is not an early indicator of pregnancy. I hope I'm answering your question. ...Read more
I was trying to get pregnant for 3 months now I decide to use the ovulation kit. Got a LH surge and had sex for 2 days after. What are my chances?
Up to 20% - 25%: At 22 most couples can get pregnant in the first 6-12 months of trying. You have up to a 20-25% chance per month if both partners are healthy, and an 85% chance of getting pregnant in a year. See a fertility specialist (rei) for help if you get close to the one year mark, or sooner if you have known problems like endometriosis or previous pid. Best wishes. ...Read more
Will a girl ovulate 3 days after her period? And what is LH surge? How do you check and track LH surge?
Can't ovulate 3 days: The cycle is run by your hormones. Call day 1 the first day of last menstural cycle. Days 11-15 are when an egg usually leaves the ovary (ovulation)and travels thru the fallopian tube to the womb. The ovary begins to produce progesterone.If no sperm finds the egg the estrogen and Progesterone begin to lessen and by day 28 a period results. Not sure what you mean by "ih".Fsh and lh are drivers of this. ...Read more
Ttc second child. First round clomid 5-9 days. Cd 11 today no high fertility (estradiol) in ovulation kit. Does clomid affect estrogen surge?
Clomid: Clomid is used to trigger ovulation. A home ovulation kit detects a hormone called LH not estrogen. The goal is for LH to trigger the ovary to release the egg. If ovulation occurs then your doctor may want to check a Progesterone level one week later to verify that ovulation occurred ...Read more
I'm concerned if I am actually ovulating or not. Had a +ve LH surge on 24/25 Sep & 8 days later I got my period. Trying for a baby so is this normal? Irregular periods & cycle 39 days. Saw gynae 19 Sep
Depends: Your numbers and dates make the risk of "anovulatory cycles" go up. If you have any risk factors for polycystic ovarian syndrome, ie obesity, diabetes, or other endocrine issues, then you may need help with ovulation. Talk with your gynecologist about it. Ultrasounds will often reveal a ruptured follicle and possible corpus luteum cyst if you have. ...Read more
I know LH surge that lasts many days, can be a symptom of pcos. Blood tests say I'm ovulating, yet my LH surge lasts till my period, why?
No need to repeat: You stop doing ovulation kits after it turns positive because it will stay positive for awhile. If you are having regular periods and your ovulation tests show you are ovulating there is simply no value or utility in following a lh surge. If you are not ovulating or not having regular periods then scheduling a visit with an obgyn is certainly reasonable. ...Read more
+ LH surge. 16 days missed period. Sex during "ovulation window". Negative urine test x16. Period day 16 of missed period. What could be the reason?
Many: Hormone problems, possible cyst, possibly not enough tissue built up to bleed, if you were my pt. In coral springs, or boca raton, fl. Would do an exam blood preg test and other hormone tests and ultrasound, you may just need a dose of Progesterone to induce the period once the other tests have been done. ...Read more
