Dear ♥♥Luke’sMum24, please read all my other answers I will be sending you more on this with other questions you have. All said,Also depending on her Ovulation Thnx 4adding UR ages that makes lot’s of diff.All said, U need 2 understand woman periods.STRESS ANXIETY WILL MOST DEFENITLY DELAY HER PERIOD. Also if she is still young since both R in college girls usually have not yet a so called requral Rhythm on their period even though if they thing they R any periods is between 21 to 26 days some more. Average cycle is 28 days. Menstruation is a woman’s monthly bleeding. It is also called menses, menstrual period, or period. When a woman has her period, she is menstruating. The menstrual blood is partly blood& partly tissue from the inside of the uterus. It flows from the uterus through the small opening in the cervix,&passes out of the body through the vagina.Menstruation is part of the menstrual cycle, which helps a woman’s body prepare 4 the possibility of pregnancy each month. A cycle begins on the 1st day of bleeding & continues up 2, but not including, the 1st day of the next period. The average menstrual cycle is around 28 days long.However, a cycle can range anywhere from 21 days to 35 days or more.The length of a woman’s cycle may change a little from month 2 month. Most menstrual periods can last from 1 to 8 days, with the average being 4 to 5 days.Periods R a normal part of a woman’s life from puberty, around the age of 10-14 until its cessation (menopause) about 50. This regular (or not so regular) bleeding is the most noticeable sign of a woman’s menstrual cycle, but it is not the only sign. Getting 2 know the other,less obvious signs of her cycle can help her become more familiar with her own changing levels of fertility.The menstrual cycle is regulated by hormones: (LH) luteinizing hormone & (FSH) follicle-stimulating hormone, which R produced by the pituitary gland, also estrogen& progesterone hormones, which R produced by the ovaries. The cycle has 3 phases: follicular, ovulatory,& luteal.The menstrual cycle begins with menstrual bleeding, which marks the 1st day of the follicular phase. Bleeding occurs when levels of estrogen & progesterone decrease, causing the thickened lining of the uterus (endometrium) 2 degenerate &B shed.During the 1st half of this phase, the (FSH) follicle-stimulating hormone level increases slightly, stimulating the development of several follicles. Each follicle contains an egg. Later, as the follicle-stimulating hormone level decreases, only1 follicle continues 2 develop.This follicle produces estrogen.The ovulatory phase begins with a surge in (LH) luteinizing hormone & (FSH) follicle-stimulating hormone levels. Luteinizing hormone stimulates egg release (ovulation), which usually occurs 16 to 32 hours after the surge begins.The estrogen level peaks during the surge,& the progesterone level starts 2 increase. During the luteal phase, levels of the LH & FSH decrease.The ruptured follicle closes after releasing the egg& forms a corpus luteum, which produces progesterone. Later in this phase, the estrogen level increases. Progesterone & estrogen cause the lining of the uterus 2 thicken more. If the egg is not fertilized, the corpus luteum degenerates& no longer produces progesterone, the estrogen level decreases, the lining degenerates & is shed,& a new menstrual cycle begins.The length of a woman’s menstrual cycle is calculated by the number of days between 1 period & the next.A cycle begins on the first day of bleeding and continues up 2, but not including, the 1st day of the next period. Women’s cycles range from 21 to 40 days or more,with an average of around 28 days.She can go on Birth control ORTHO Tri CYCLEN 28 in which 21 pill are active 4 protection and 7 R in active 4 her period 2 come & go based on her how many days she is between 3to 7 days.After 10 days of continuous use of active pills she should B ok 4 sex & make sure she does not miss days otherwise it will not B effective If U need more info on how 2 do that & what 2 do will B glad to help U. Now as to the discharge Once girls start puberty a white &/or clear discharge is normal. The vagina is self-cleaning. Thick, white discharge is common @ the beginning & end of her cycle. Clear & stretchy This is “fertile” mucous & means she is ovulating.Clear & watery. This occurs at diff. X’s of her cycle & can B particularly heavy after exercising.

PCOS, 4 days late . . neg test?

I have been testing since the day my period was due up until yesterday & still getting a negative result. I missed about 2 weeks metformin 2 months ago would that affect this month’s period?? I dont know if it would but I’m late & ever since i started on metformin & clomid I have gotten down to 42 days & my doc upped my dosage from 50 to 100mg clomid last month so my period should be SHORTER not longer.
What going on? Please help, thank you?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

It sounds like you didn’t ovulate. Especially, if you don’t feel like AF is coming on. Is your doctor not monitoring your Clomid cycles with ultrasounds? It is possible that missing the metformin started a chain reaction that stopped ovulation this cycle, although that isn’t too likely unless your insulin resistance is very bad and your insulin levels shot up during that time.

Here is what I’ve found while dealing with PCOS and TTC, some of it may apply to you, some may not, just my observations/findings:

1) Chart. You need to know if you’re ovulating. With PCOS you can get the LH surge (ie test positive on an ovulation predictor strip), but not ovulate. The best way to determine if you ovulated is your basal body temperature. If it goes up and stays up you O’d (not the fun kind, but the important kind).

2) Insulin is the devil. Especially for you, because PCOS and Insulin Resistance are twin sisters and they hate you. If your insulin resistance is fair to normal, you can control it with diet. Lower carb, no sugar/flour, lots of fruits and veggies. Good book to check out is Fertility Foods by Jeremy Groll. Designed for PCOS.

3) If your insulin resistance is pretty bad and diet isn’t doing the trick, you may need some drugs to help out Metformin/Glucophage is a big helper. If that doesn’t do the trick Actos can be brought to the party.

4) Did I mention charting? You really need to know if you’re ovulating or not. Because if not, you may need some ovarian stimulation ala Clomid/Femara. It’s dirt cheap as these things go and is pretty effective with the PCOS set. I personally have gotten pregnant with Clomid and am on Femara now.

5) Take your vitamins. Start your prenatals now. They help. And they do wonders for your hair and nails.

6) Exercise. I know it sucks, but it really helps with the insulin resistance. You need 150 minutes of exercise a week, preferably 100 minutes of cardio and 50 of strength training. Muscles are good for fighting insulin resistance. This is the area where I really suck at meeting my goals.

7) If you’re overweight, lose some weight. A loss of just 5% can have a tremendous impact on your insulin resistance.
8) Use full fat dairy if you use dairy at all. The lower fat dairy has a disproportionately high level of androgen hormones which can exacerbate PCOS.

ovulation predictor test question.?

On day 14 of my cycle I tested + with opk. today, day 16 of cycle i still have +. How long do you test + with opk? i thought i would get + and ovulate 12-36 hrs later and then get – with opk aftera day or so. Is this true?? This is my first month with opk test so im a bit confused.
with both tests the test line was darker than the control line.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

There’s a couple of things that could be happening. #1-you caught your LH surge on the upwards. You may have tested when it was going up. Was the 14th a bit lighter than the 16th? If so then that’s what probably happened. #2-you may have PCOS. Women with PCOS can test positive on an OPK a lot during a normal cycle. The LH surge is a constant in the urine thus giving false positives. #3 Your body may have been in the throws of ovulating and decided to hold back, like on the 15th. Our brain deciphers whether or not we’re capable of having a child. You may have experienced stress or something so the body kinda haulted ovulation. Once the situation was restored, the body says “okay, time to ovulate”. The thing to remember is that a + on an OPK does not guarantee ovulation. It only tests for the LH surge that precedes ovulation. The only way to tell if you truly did O is to take your waking temperature with a basal thermometer. Most women find their temps spike up about three days after a + on an OPK. Good luck!

Helen asks…

should an ovlation test kit?

show that u are ovulating 5 days in a row,i took a test sat – wed and everyday the two lines were the same colour meaning i was ovulating. its just i ve heard opk can also pick up pregnancy. what could this mean

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

OPK can be used to detect pregnancy but they are not as reliable as hpt. OPKs and HPTs both detect a form of hCg, only the hpt is specific to the pregnancy hCg. That being said, your body would not be producing the “pregnancy” hCg so quickly after ovulation. It takes time for the fertilized egg to implant, start producing hCg, and for that hCg to get high enough in concentration to be detected in urine.

Has this ever happened before on an opk? Some women with PCOS get positive results frequently throughout the month because of higher levels of LH in their urine. It is possible that you caught your surge on the way up and down, but I would think 5 days is a little long even for that case. Do you track your BBT? BBT is a great way to show if and when you are ovulating.
Good luck!

Donna asks…

what does it mean when you keep getting a postive ovulation test?

if the tests are correct..I have been ovulating everyday since the 12th..the bf and I had a lot of sex the 10th and 11th..and we had sex on the 12th..every day since the 12th the ovulation test keeps saying im ovulating..I didn’t think u could ovulate that long.
I am using the answer strips..where when the test line is darker then the control line it means a positive..every day since the 12th the test line has been clearly darker then the control line..I have followed the directions carefully..has this happened to anyone and they’ve been pregnant?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

This could be a sign of a few things. Your body may have started to ovulate, then stopped for some reason. Your body getting ready to try again can cause what looks like a long LH surge.

This is also a sign of PCOS, so I would suggest mentioning it to your doctor, especially if it happens again.

OPKs can also detect pregnancy, but it’s far too early for that.

Last but not least, OPKs are not always accurate for a variety of reasons. Just keep having sex until it’s negative and/or you’re sure you ovulated by some other method.

Good luck!
