My period is two months late but pregnancy test is still negative. Have been getting strong positive OPK for a month. Have symptoms should I get an us?

PCOS: An opk should only be positive for 1-2 days so the kit is incorrect. It means you have naturally high lh levels. Combined with the missed periods means most likely you have a disroder called polycystic ovarian syndrome. The opk kits will most likely never work for you so you can save some money. But an evaluation by your obgyn is important. ...Read more

Can your lh surge be detected on an opk if hcg is still being detected on a pregnancy test after a miscarriage?

Can your lh surge be detected on an opk if hcg is still being detected on a pregnancy test after a miscarriage?

It can occur.: Scientific studies have been done to determine the effects of HCG on the LH surge and most have found no effect one way or another. However, I'm concerned that you still have a positive pregnancy test after a miscarriage. You may some remnants of the placenta in your uterus. This can cause infection, bleeding & other complications. Please get in touch with your OBGyn. ...Read more

Pregnant or no ovula: Opks are notoriously unreliable. If you truly ovulated your period will come almost exactly 14 days after ovulation, or you are pregnant. Try another test in a day or two, but more importantly, call the doctor that is treating your anovulation. I have my patients come in for luteal phase blood test because I do not rely on opks. ...Read more

Consider "central" causes: motion sickness, vertigo, migraine headache, brain problems (some very serious). Also, rule out infection (? Urinary tract), medication side effects, pregnancy, & even reaction to stress. Find & treat cause. ...Read more
