Positive Lh Surge Before Period

Sandra asks…

Trying to conceive, confused about when I can test.?

My past two periods were December 16th and January 10th. From what I understand, that would be a 26 day cycle. My cycle is irregular so I know that this is not always so. Anyway, I had been taking ovulation tests and yesterday (Jan 29th) I had an LH surge. This was 20 days after my last period on Jan 10th. If I DO have a 26 day cycle then in six days (from yesterday) I would get my period. At home pregnancy test say you can test up to six days before your missed period. I obviously know I can’t test now because the process of getting pregnant wouldn’t even be done taking place (implantation and all) but when will I be able to?! If my period doesn’t come in a week or so then that’s a good sign but do I need to wait another month before a positive result could show? So lost and frusterated. I hope this is clear enough. Thanks.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

If your cycle is irregular, then you can’t just look at your last 2 periods to determine how long your cycles are — your LAST cycle was 26 days, but that doesn’t mean you have a 26-day cycle. This cycle may be 35 or 40 days, which would explain why you’re just ovulating now (most women ovulate around 14 days before the start of their next period). If an ovulation kit showed an LH surge yesterday, then you should ovulate today, and then expect your period in about 12-16 days. If it hasn’t come in 16 days, take a pregnancy test.

OPK used as a HPT…?

So I understand that an OPK test strip can detect hCG but a HPT can’t detect Lh. My question is… When u use an OPK it’s recommended 2 test in the afternoon rather than in the morning, but a HPT is the other way around so, should u test with an OPK test strip in the morning or afternoon when trying 2 detect hCG? I had 1 OPK test strip left from this cycle and I didn’t have a HPT so I thought I’d try and c if it would hopefully come up positive. I tested 3 days before my period but at 10 o’clock at nite and it came up with a faint line (but not dark like it is when u get ur Lh Surge) but it was darker than day 1 and 2 of my tests in my fertile time. I’m due 4 my period 2morrow, but i’m not getting my usual cramps that I get b4 my period so i’m hoping maybe I still might have a chance this time around, but I felt really negative when I didn’t c a dark line, should I have tested in the morning or would it b the same result no matter what time… Just curious.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

And OPK is NOT a HPT!! You can ovulate at any time… Please do a HPT to be sure and GOOD LUCK!

Maria asks…

if im on norethisterone and clomid, when can do a pregnancy test?

i had a positive Ovulation test recently, but i have to take clomid to ovulate, and norethistrone before hand to induce my period. me and the hubby had lots of intercourse around my LH surge, and i know people say to wait 2 to 3 weeks to test but as i wont have a “missed period” to judge it by, i am scared that i might get a negative result, and therefore continue to take my norethisterone to induce the next period, when actually i might have got pregnant but it could be too early to detect. should i put off inducing the period to start my 2nd round untill about 6 weeks after the intercourse, instead of the usual 2 to 3?? just incase i could be pregnant and not realise it?? what does everyone else do who takes norethisterone and clomid??? any help is appreciated!!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I HAD TO TAKE NORETHISTERONE 1 3 TIMES A DAY AND THE CLOMID ON THE SECOND DAY OF MY PERIOD WHEN I CAME ON I GAVE IT EXACTLY 3 WEEKS AND DID A TEST AND I WAS PREGGERS LOL HOPE THIS HELPS BUT IT DID WORK FIRST TIME FOR ME AND NOW I AM TRYING THE CYCLE AGAIN I HOPE IT WORKS AGAIN GOOD LOOK LOVE HOPE U GET WHAT U WANT ALL THE BEST XX SOZ FOR THE CAPS LOL

Sharon asks…

How soon can I take a home pregnancy test?

I bought a kit that was designed to track my ovulation, and tell me when my LH surge was, so that I would have a better chance of getting pregnant. After about 10 days, I got a positive result. During the next 48 I had intercourse to try to get pregnant. My LH surge was from the 19-20 of September. I want to know when I can take a home pregnancy test. I know a lot of people say that you can wait about three weeks, and others say “3-5 days before your missed period“. However, my periods are always late, and are not reliable to go on, unfortunately. I am going to buy a test that predicts pregnancy early, like EPT or Clear Blue, but I’m anxious and I don’t want to end up taking the test way too soon. Can someone help me out? Thanks! =]

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

You should wait until you miss your period for the most accurate results. But if you’re that anxious to know, the earliest you should take a test is 10-12 days after you ovulated.

Mary asks…

I have been cramping for the past few days… can someone please help?

My husband and I have been TTC for the past 2 1/2 years without any luck. I started my period Feb. 16. I am not expecting to start again until about the 19th (I have a 30-33 day cycle). We BD the first two days of March before he left for his assignment in California. I ovulate 14 days before my next period. I didn’t chart my BBT this time because I have been sick on and off over the past two weeks and the OPK showed a LH surge on the 4th. The same day of the surge… I had the stretchy CM (which I found a little odd). The next day… I had twinges on mainly my left side (and occasionally on my right). And for the past few days I have been cramping quite a bit on my right side with some extra discharge. Yesterday at work I started to get real bad backaches (which happened in my first pregnancy before I got a positive but it ended in a miscarriage). I am curious as to what is going on. I have already ovulated and it’s too soon for implantation cramps. Anyone experience this before?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Hi

I am 9 dpo right now and experiencing mild cramps also, even though Af isn’t due til next Wednesday ( another 5 days away). I’ve been ttc for 14 months with one miscarriage 4 months ago. This months does feel very different than usual. I wouldn’t usually have any cramps this early before AF and also have excessive discharge, which is thick and creamy, just so noticeable because of the extreme wetness than usual too, all very strange but sounds like you are experiencing similiar ‘symptoms’ to me right now. Twinges, cramps, discharge etc. It does sound like you tried at all the right times, so I’m hoping it’s a positive for you!!

I’ve just been searching the net and these are all possible pregnancy signs although It’s too early to take a test, which is so frustrating, the waiting part is the worst sometimes. You never know, it could just be wishful thinking but let’s just hope it’s good news hey!! Lots of baby dust to you +++++ Take care
