Lh Surge Calculator

Lines on a digital opk?

According to the on line ovulation calculators I should be ovulating today. I took the test at 10am n got a negative. Thing is when I took the test strip out of the digital reader the test line was really faint wheras on friday when I tested and tuk the strip out it was dark. Have I missed my LH surge?

My LMP was jan 19th and my cycle is about 33 days

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Well my husband and i have been TTC and my doctor put me on clomid and estrogen to help me ovulate. This is my first month on it and i used the ovulation kit and i ovulated on day 16 my doctor estimated that i would ovulate anywhere from day 10 to 14 so everyone is different i would defintely continue to test with the ovulation kit. If your hold the stick in your right hand the line further away from your thumb should be darker than the one closes to your thumb. That means your are ovulating !! I recommend that you test everyday at the same time. Lots of baby dust your way !! I hope this month is the month for us !!

TTC 4dpo – too early for implantation?

My last period was on the 21st Jan and lasted until 24th approx with my usual 28 day cycle….I have used an online calculator in December which predicted i would ovulate around the 2-5th of Jan… so i assumed it would be the same for Feb after the TTC failed for December and January… According to a Ovulation test on the 1st approx 12pm, there was no LH surge detected. on the 2nd of Feb however, approx 6pm, there was a line which darkened with an almost exact line to the control line as required, I would assume I ovulated… We’d BD’d on the 31st Jan and then on the 2nd, 3rd and today… of Feb.
Today i’ve been having small dull cramping feelings, barely noticable but enough to know its unusual. I’ve heard the egg stays in the fallopian tube for about 3 days then travels down until it find a spot…. if it found a spot today (4 days after possibly ovulation and conception), is it possible to feel it starting to stick and burrow? … or am i just hoping too much.

Yeah i know implantation usually occurs 7+ days after conception, but my ovulation dates are already earlier then the average 14 days, so could implantation be earlier also?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Yeah that’s too early for implantation.. It’s usually 7 to 10 days. Even if you ovulate earlier than most women, that won’t affect implantation. The embryo needs at least 7 to 10 days to develop to the point where it’s able to implant in to the uterus.

Nancy asks…

Do you think I was ovulating?

The first day of my cycle was on 01/15/2009. All ovulation calculators stated that I would ovulate on 01/28. On 01/27 my cervix mucus was very stretchy, cloudy white with a slight pink color to to it. Also was a lot of mucus at once. I also had taken my ovulation test and on the 27th and the line was very light which states that I might not have the LH surge. Either way we had sex on the 27th and 28th and plan to have sex again on the 29th. I never noticed any very liquid egg white mucus would that be because we had intercourse on the 27th. Sort of a lot of questions in one paragraph.
I take my opk test in around 6 pm nightly.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

It sound like that to me i had excatly the same on day 14 of my cycle so i hope so. But i dont do the ovulation tests as not always accurate. I do know however you are not suppose to take them in the morning as there is less lh hormone in urine that early in the morning so you should take it after two. I dont know but if you took the test in the morning that may of been why it was not a stong line. Good luck and lots of baby dust

Donna asks…

okay so I have baby on the brain…and have a few questions?

Alright when I was pregnant with my daughter I remember having to drink this thick, sweet liquid and then take a test. I don’t quite remember what the test was for, or how many weeks it was when I had to take the test. Can anyone tell me when they had to do this?

And is anyone on tricare prime? Does it cover the ultrasounds in 3D or 4D? Or is it just for the 2D basic ultrasounds?

And…lol…we’re trying to conceive our 2nd child. I’m ovulating right now, but haven’t gotten my LH Surge yet. But when I did an ovulation calculator it say’s I should have just started being fertile today, but I noticed my vaginal discharge changed on the 23rd. When should I be at my most fertile? Is it today and tomorrow? Anything that I can look for to let me know when I’ll be most fertile? We are having sex every other day for this whole week, so hopefully we’ll get pregnant!!

Any other tricks you ladies may know with ttc please clue me in!! This is our first month of trying. I got pregnant with my 1st child pretty easily, so I’m hoping this one will be as easy as my daughter was!!

Anyways, sorry for such a long and slightly confusing question. But thanks for your answers =D

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

It’s an orange drink and I think it’s for GD. I took it when I was 27 weeks. Tricare should cover the ultrasound. When I was ttc I had sex a day before I “ovulated” and concieved. Good luck!

Timing Ovulation Help Please?

I used the ovulation calculators on the internet from various websites and some said July 6th some said the 8th and some said the 9th would be my days of ovulation…. So me and my fiance did it on the 6th and the 8th.. is there a good chance I’m pregnant?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Many women who are trying to conceive want to learn when ovulation and implantation occur and what are usual miscarriage or pregnancy loss rates. Quite often the numbers women are given are based on averages, theoretical numbers and sometimes just plain guesses because it is such a difficult topic to scientifically investigate. New data comes available periodically but it is not always promptly and widely disseminated even on the Net.

When does implantation take place?

One such relatively recent study tells us that implantation does not always take place on day 7 after ovulation. In fact it very rarely does. This study by AJ Wilcox (1) accurately determined the day of implantation by very sensitive pregnancy test (HCG) measurement compared to ovulation.

HCG hormone starts being produced when the pregnancy implants into the uterine lining. The findings in normal women trying to conceive included:

first appearance of HCG (implantation) occurred 6-12 days after ovulation
84% of the pregnancies implanted on days 8-10 after ovulation
early pregnancy loss increased with later implantation –
implantation early pregnancy loss rate
13% by day 9
26% on day 10
52% on day 11
86% on day 12 or more
Overall the total pregnancy loss up to 6 weeks was 25%. Now that seems very high to most people but keep in mind many of these pregnancy losses occurred so early that women often were not aware they were even pregnant. The normal early pregnancy loss rate that most women know about is 15-18% of clinically recognized pregnancies so almost 40% of all pregnancy loss is unrecognized.

When is the best time to have intercourse in order to get pregnant?

Wilcox had also performed previous work in 1995 (2) which demonstrated that pregnancy only occurs if intercourse occurs within the 6 days prior to and including ovulation. Intercourse after the day of ovulation does not result in pregnancy. The probability of conception ranged from 10% when intercourse occurred five days before ovulation to 33% when it occurred on the day of ovulation itself.

This is the data that suggests the best timing of intercourse in order to conceive is day 10, 12, 14 and 16 (in case of late ovulation) of a 28 day cycle or days -4, -2, 0, +2 in relation to expected ovulation in the case of cycles different than 28 days.

When should I begin testing with home urine tests?

Most home pregnancy tests that check urine beta-HCG are sensitive to 20-25 mIU/ml of HCG. The general rule-of thumb is to test at the time when you are a day late for your menses or about 15 days after ovulation. The test can be positive anywhere from about 2-3 days prior to a missed menses to 4-5 days after.

Testing really does depend upon how regular your menses are or in other words how regular ovulation occurs. If you tend to be late (longer than 28 days) with your periods or the timing of menses varies by several days each cycle, then it is better not to waste pregnancy tests by testing at day 28-29 after the last period starts.

Are ovulation prediction tests worth doing?

Pelvic ultrasound looking at the ovaries is considered the gold standard in ovulation prediction in a research setting but obviously in a practical application of a woman trying to conceive, ultrasound is not used. Urinary LH testing has been shown to have a 100% correlation with ultrasound as far as predicting the timing of ovulation (3). In that same study, they looked at cervical mucous changes, basal body temperature (BBT) charts and salivary ferning. Cervical mucous changes only had a correlation of 48%, salivary ferning correlated 37% and BBT has a 30% correlation.

For the home tests that measure LH surge that immediately precedes ovulation, detection of LH occurs at above 30 mIU/ml. This means that women with polycystic ovarian syndrome who have slightly higher resting LH values are still not falsely detected as ovulating. The urinary LH spike occurs about 24-36 hours prior to ovulation so it is very useful for women trying to conceive because it gives them a window of warning. The test will show positive for one or two days and rarely 3 days if you catch a spike right at the beginning and it is a large release of LH.
