Lh Surge Ovulation Timing

Sandy asks…

No lh surge but just felt an ovulation twinge…?

My opk test lines have been getting lighter not darker, started testing on cd 9 and today is cd 16. I got one on cd 10 that was dark but it definitely wasn’t a positive. Now the lines are virtually non existent but I felt an ovulation twinge this morning. Is it possible to ovulate even with no lh surge? Or could I have missed it? I’ve been testing 2 times a day so I thought if I had one I surely would’ve caught it…

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I have also been checking for ovulation for 18 days know and still have not gotten a positive, I also though I was having ovulation pains but no luck with the sticks. Mine are always a faint line never really getting light at all. I think you should just keep testing and hopefully you do get a positive soon. Good Luck!!

I am trying to conceive and i have a fetility chart set up and i know you have 4 peak fertility where i am ovulating, but when is the best time to have sex before my ovulation days every day that i am or could be ovulating …..I am lost. According to my chart my peak fertility days were the 13 th 14 th 15 th and 16th. i have had intercourse since the 13th everday and night and if i am already pregant will ovulation detector sticks still work if i am?
I had sex on the 12th too!!!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

You don’t mention if you have already started using the opk’s? But, if you haven’t ovulated yet, then Yes the sticks will still work as they detect your LH surge to let you know that you will ovulate in the next 12-36 hrs.

If it doesn’t work this month, try having sex every other day as this helps build up your partners sperm count. Have sex 3 days before and 2 days after ovulation, should catch the egg.

As for opk’s, you could try testing from 10 days after the start of your period for about 8 days, by which time you should have ovulated.

Hope this helps, sending Babydust your way!

Do Ovulation tests work?

I have been testing with ovulation testing kit and was wondering. As I have been worried that I may not be producing egg as we have been trying for a baby for some time now and no luck, anyway if I get a positive on the sticks does that mean i can stop worrying about not producing an egg and get on with the fun stuff?
What i mean is does these tests prove that an egg is about to be released for definate? I must sound so silly!! or desparate!!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

The tests show and LH surge, not the egg actually being released. An LH surge usually happens 12-36 hours before ovulation, but it is possible to have a surge and not release an egg. Some women dont ovulate evry cycle, and some don’t at all. Infertility is defined as trying for one year and not getting pregnant. In that case, you’d need to talk to your doctor.
When you get a positive from your ovulation test, have sex that day, and every day for the next 3 days. Don’t wory too much about if you’re actually ovulating, just assume you are and “get on with the fun stuff”. Baby making can be stressful when you really want it, but just try to relax and enjoy it.

Mary asks…

Double Ovulation?

Can you ovulate twice a cycle? This hasn’t happened to me (yet) but I’ve heard about it. A good friend trying to concieve has had incidents where she will get a temp dip and spike twice each proceeded with an LH surge. Other times she gets the dip and spike pattern without the LH surge for the first and with the LH surge for the second. I’ve assumed the second would be her real ovulation. Opinions?
Her cycle varies from 30 to 35 days. Normally her second time happens around 10 days before her period the first around 14-15 days before her period.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Multiple ovulation generally occurs only within 24 hours of one another (that’s how you get fraternal twins). It’s more likely that what your friend experiences is the body gearing up for ovulation and then ovulation getting delayed for some reason (stress, travel, illness, ect., which is actually quite common). You’re right- the second would be her real ovulation, not the first.

Nancy asks…

When is the best time to have sex after your OPK test shows a postitive LH surge?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

The best time to get pregnant is two days before and on ovulation day.When OPKs show a positive LH surge, it means you should ovulate in 24-36 hours. Start having fun now and for the next couple days!
Good luck…
