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.
