About Lh Surge Before Period

Donna asks…

LH surge, no period, negative test?

I missed my period yesterday. I took a LH test and it was positive 18 days ago. I also got symptoms that I was ovulating like ovulation pains and that I ovulated like sore breasts. I was also getting period-like cramps and I thought I would start my period but it never came. I also have taken a couple pregnancy tests – one yesterday – 15dpo – and it is negative. I also got at about 14dpo pink blood – but that was after sex so I don’t know if it was from sex, but I’ve never had that before so I don’t understand why. Can anyone tell me what is going on? Why did I get an LH surge and now I don’t have my period or a positive HPT?

Ovulation Predictor’s answers:

LH surge is not a guarantee of ovulation or that you get pregnant if you have sex during that time. It just tells you that your body is preparing for it and it’s a good time for intercourse. A negative HPT doesn’t mean anything. I showed positive (and just) after 3 or more days that I was late. Bleeding could be due to implantation if you are pregnant. If you desperately want to become pregnant your body could trick you and make your periods late.
You could very well be pregnant (and sounds like it) but haven’t produced enough of the hcg for a test to show positive

Laura asks…

LH surge?? Ovulating right after period?

I began taking ovulation tests the day after my period stopped as directed in the instructions. I took both tests with first morning urine just so it was most concentrated. On the first morning I had absolutely nothing and then the second morning a very strong line for the LH surge. I have been irregular since I began menstruating many years ago, but I’m wondering if this is normal?? Is it possible to ovulate again immediately after a period? It was long but very light. Every morning it was just spotting when I wiped, then it was slightly heavier for a couple days here and there but mostly light and spotty. Brown and light red/pinkish. Before that my period was on March 22nd, so it’s been weeks! April 28th it started spotting lightly, a little heavier on the 30th then spotting until May 5th. Agh what’s going on??

Ovulation Predictor’s answers:

Yes it is… Woman usually ovulate between day 8 and day 22 after their period, so thats totally normal, if you have 6 or 7 days period and you took an OPK test on day 8 and it was negative and day 9 positive there’s nothing wrong, stop stressing out and have fun, you dont wanna miss the opportunity.
Go for it girl.
P.s: it doesnt really matter your period cycle as long as your ovulating, keep on taking the OPK to help you out finding out your fertile days, that way you can baby dance on those days and a day after if possible.
Wish you the best and lots of Baby dust!

Lisa asks…

Lh surge and pregnancy?

My boyfriend and I had sex two days before my Lh surge and ejaculated in me two different times that same day then also the day before my Lh surge he ejaculated in me again. What are the chances of me being pregnant? I have to wait 12 more days before my potential missed period. Everytime I have an Lh surge when do I ovulate? Is it that same day or otherwise?

Ovulation Predictor’s answers:

Huh? I’m not sure, you could be pregnant.. I guess. You’ll probably just have to wait it out.

Linda asks…

How long after an LH surge should my period start?


This month bought the Clear Blue Easy Digital Ovulation test. It came with 7 strips to test when your LH surge happens, So you know the best 2 days to have sex. I tested On July 23 and it was positive. Ten days later I still hadn’t started and I tested again and it still said I had an LH surge. My perio has been real spastic lately anyway, If I started Jul 4th last month then this month I should start 3-5 days later. still haven’t started, I don’t have any more OPK stick and I want to wait a little longer before I spend money on a pregnancy test. Anybody hae any idea what’s going on?

Ovulation Predictor’s answers:

Hmmm Im a bit confused, however I used the same test and this is how it worked.
I tested one day and there was no surge, I tested the next day and there was a surge, I had sex that day and the next day. I tested 9 days later and was pregnant.
Usually you test 2 weeks after the lh surge.
My period was spastic as well but if you know when your surge was then generally your period is due 2 weeks after. You cant and wont have 2 lh surges in the one cycle.

Nancy asks…

Can you ovulate a week before your period is due?

TTC month #2. I had an LH Surge last 9 days ago had sex the next 2 days in a row. My period is due today, I have been experiencing very mild cramping sporadically the last few days but no period. Could my count be off? Is it possible to ovulate that late in your cycle? If so, could I test and receive an accurate result?

Ovulation Predictor’s answers:

I agree that you should hold off testing until you’re 15 days past the LH surge without AF. For most women, the luteal phase is at least 12 days long; anything under 10 days could mean that pregnancy won’t be viable (implantation normally happens between 8 and 10dpo and so if your period comes along before that time, implantation simply won’t ever happen!) But this is easily fixed (with progesterone) so if you have genuinely short luteal phase for cycles, be sure to take your charts to your doctor and have a progesterone test done on CD21.

Having said all of that depressing stuff, I suspect you’ve probably got a perfectly normal luteal phase and you’ll find that AF simply arrives later than you’d imagined, around 14dpo! Good luck 🙂
