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.

If you desire pregnancy then tack your cycles over the next 3-4 months and bring the calendar in to your doctor. If you do not desire pregnancy then schedule a visit for birth control to prevent pregnancy and provide cycle control. ...Read more

Help please! i don't know when would i ovulate after having a miscarriage a week ago?

3 + weeks: After a miscarriage a woman may ovulate and thus conceive as early as in 3 weeks time. She may not have a menstrual period before conceiving. The pregnancy test can be positive for up to weeks after a miscarriage. It can therefore become difficult to discern, if, in the absence of a menstrual period, a positive urine pregnancy test is caused by the previous or a new pregnancy. ...Read more

See below: If you are having regular menstrual cycles you probably are ovulating. You can use basal body temperature or ovulation predictor kits to determine when. Just because you don't get pregnant doesn't mean you didn't ovulate that month. Each cycle even when conditions are ideal chances of pregnancy are only about 20%. ...Read more

How soon after bleeding stops from miscarriage will I ovulate?

Unpredictable: You will likely ovulate 2-6 weeks after the miscarriage, though in some women it can take longer. Even though you may be more fertile just after a loss, the risk of miscarriage is higher if you do not wait a couple of months, so most docs advise their patients to wait 2 months. ...Read more

I had a miscarriage 2 months ago and now my cycle is 40 days and i don't know when i ovulate can you please help me its really confusing?

A few ideas: It can take a cycle or 2 to regulate one's hormones after a miscarriage. If you're not at extremes of weight (thin/heavy) then likely this delay is due to body adjustments following miscarriage. You can track basal body temp, there are apps that help track ovulation. ...Read more

Yes, you may not: If you are not ovulating, it may be a long time before you bleed. If you are not wanting to get pregnant now, BCPs would be the easiest way to control your cycles. If you are wanting pregnancy, you may need to be tested for PCOS or some other hormone imbalance. ...Read more

Miscarried 12-11-13 7wks. Could i be ovulating again? I have some mild cramping on my left side. How much time do I have? Its only been a few hours.

Probably not: If you just miscarried on dec 11 (and today being dec 21) it would be too soon to ovulate again. Depending on how far along you were when you miscarried, it can take up to 6 weeks to begin cycling again. The farther along you were, the longer it can take. ...Read more
