Is there a safe way to delay ovulation in a normal cyle by just a few days?

Is there a safe way to delay ovulation in a normal cyle by just a few days?

Possibly: By taking Clomid (clomiphene) starting on day 5 you can sometimes push the day of ovulation a couple of days later. This is not foolproof. It is more likely to work if you have a very short cycle and ovulate early and are trying to ovulate closer to day 14. There is a 5-10% risk of multiple birth (mostly twins) so it is not without risk. ...Read more

Check Pregnancy Test: First I would check to see if you are pregnant. The hsg really should not affect the timing of your period. But sometimes it makes the tubes work better and increases your pregnancy rates. ...Read more

I had 13th day 14mm dominant follicle, 4 days later it was 15mm, then it was smaller and I didn't ovulate, what are the causes if have regular periods?

I had 13th day 14mm dominant follicle, 4 days later it was 15mm, then it was smaller and I didn't ovulate, what are the causes if have regular periods?

Not clear: I am not sure definitive conclusions can be made from monitoring follicular development over one menstrual cycle. Since you are tracking follicular size I assume you are seeing an infertility specialist otherwise I am not sure why one would be monitoring this. If so then schedule a follow up visit with the specialist to determine the next steps. ...Read more

Hello. I have a regular cycle but my period comes every 25 days. My last period was Dec 18, 2015. When did I ovulate and conceive my baby?

Hello. I have a regular cycle but my period comes every 25 days. My last period was Dec 18, 2015. When did I ovulate and conceive my baby?

Just an estimate...: It cannot be known the moment conception actually happens in a natural pregnancy. One can count 11 days after Dec. 18, to estimate ovulation day. Even if one knows the exact moment ejaculation happened, that still does not say when conception was. Use the U/S dating scan to estimate the conception date. It almost never matters when the exact conception time was, and all dates are just estimates. ...Read more

If I took plan B 3 days before my projected ovulation date (with a regular cycle), will my period come earlier? Should I worry if it's late?

If I took plan B 3 days before my projected ovulation date (with a regular cycle), will my period come earlier? Should I worry if it's late?

Probably not.: When you use Plan B before you ovulate, it's quite effective in preventing pregnancy. Since you took it early in your cycle it's unlike to mess up your next period. If your period is more than a few days late, sure, get a pregnancy test, but it's likely to be negative. Yea! ...Read more

Spotted for 2 days 6 days before period do. Very regular cycle. Had Intercourse on ovulation day. 4 days before period do negative pregnancy t?

Too soon to test: Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about 2-3 weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. ...Read more

What are the chances of conceiving days before ovulation? Regular periods. Healthy previous pregnancies. No current medications. 23 years old.

What are the chances of conceiving days before ovulation? Regular periods. Healthy previous pregnancies. No current medications. 23 years old.

Zero: By definition, you can't conceive before you ovulate b/c there's no egg there to fertilize. But, if what you're asking is, "Can I conceive if I have unprotected sex days before I ovulate? ", the answer is YES. Sperm can live in your reproductive tract for up to 3 days. If you had unprotected sex 3 days before you ovulated, you could conceivably conceive. ...Read more

What does it mean when a period starts 7 days after ovulation. Regular cycle is 32 days, now it was 21. I'm not pregnant or trying to conceive.

What does it mean when a period starts 7 days after ovulation. Regular cycle is 32 days, now it was 21. I'm not pregnant or trying to conceive.

A normal variation: At mid cycle ovulation occurs.
In the second half of the cycle the egg is sent down the fallopian tube while the cyst cavity left behind begins to produce progesterone. Progesterone tells the uterine lining to stop growing and start storing up sugar for the embryo. If no conception occurs hormone production decreases and
the uterine lining is shed in the form of the next period. ...Read more

If EDD was January 2nd based on LMP of 3/28 (regular cycle) then changed to January 12 based on early u/s. Does that mean I ovulated later??

If EDD was January 2nd based on LMP of 3/28 (regular cycle) then changed to January 12 based on early u/s. Does that mean I ovulated later??

Dating methods: Early dating methods (LMP, early U/S) have an accuracy of +/- 5 days - 2 weeks, so a dating correction by early ultrasound may be more sensitive than LMP dating if done early enough, since it has an optimal accuracy of +/- 5-7 days, vs LMP accuracy of +/- 1-2 weeks, a bit less accurate than the optimal ultrasound dating... ...Read more

If I have regular periods am I ovulating normally?

If I have regular periods am I ovulating normally?

Yes. Use an OPK kit: Regular periods mean you're ovulating regularly - try using an ovulation predictor kit (opk): test between 10 am and noon, starting on day 10 of your cycle. The first morning urine is not as accurate. Try the ovuquick brand if a drugstore test doesn't work for you. The day of a + ve test and the next 2 days are your most fertile days. If you're not pregnant after 12 months ttc see a rei specialist. ...Read more
