You can check each morning of your fertile window to see if you are likely to ovulate in the next 12-24 hours. Ideally, if you want conception, you should have intercourse BEFORE you ovulate. ...Read more

What is the difference in GFR calculators? Some tell me my egfr is 59 and some tell me its 62?

Difference in GFR: The answer to you question is that the GFR calculators give an estimated, not an actual, gfr. The calculation used to estimate the GFR is based on a person's age, sex, race, height and weight. The difference in your estimated GFR levels is about 5%, perhaps your weight was different. The only way to know what your real GFR is is to have a doctor order a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance. ...Read more

I have two ovulation-calculator apps, it said. Different answers. One it said last week on 4/15 and the other one it said today 4/20. Confusing, help?

Dates: On a normal cycle your ovulation is 14 days before your next period. But since you can't foretell the future, this is of little help. You might have 11-17 days from the beginning of your period until ovulation. After ovulation it is always 14 days to your period. The apps have to assume a 25 day cycle or a 28 day or a 31 day cycle - thus the difference. ...Read more

A bmi over 30 is considered obese. ...Read more
