Lh Surge Symptoms Ovulation

Jenny asks…

which days are named as safety period in a menstrual cycle? please explain me as detail.?

please refer the from specialists

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

A woman’s best time to get pregnant starts 2 days before ovulation and ends 24 hours after ovulation. Most other days are considered “safe” for intercourse.

Ovulation occurs when the ovary releases an egg. The egg travels to the fallopian tube http://z.about.com/d/p/440/e/f/10339.jpg, where if it is not fertilized in 24 hours it dies.

The difficulty in most situations is determining WHEN ovulation occurs. If the woman has a 28-day cycle, ovulation usually occurs on Day 14. If a woman’s cycle is longer or shorter than 28 days, ovulation usually occurs 2 weeks before the first day her period.

Please note that I say “usually”. Womens’ hormones can fluctuate due to a wide variety of reasons (stress, medications, illnesses, STDs) and her ovulation time will be affected.

So how can a women tell if she’s ovulating? Some women have ovarian pain during ovulation; some have slight spotting. Some women have egg-white-type vaginal discharge during ovulation. Some women have body temperature changes. Some women have LH (luteinizing hormone) surges during ovulation. Some women have no symptoms of ovulation at all.

The “rhythm method” of birth control involves not having sex on the woman’s fertile days. Here are some good sites you may want to read:




The rhythm method is not as effective as other types of birth control (hormones, condoms, etc.) because womens’ ovulation dates can vary widely.

Mary asks…

When should I test?

had my lh surge + on 29/10 baby danced on 29, 30 and 1st Nov been having mild cramps on and off this week and feel shattered. I had a neg pg result on friday morning with an early pt. When should I try again, I’m 28 days now and my cycle varies from 27-30 days. When it says 14dpo does that mean your lh surge?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Dpo means days past ovulation

Luteinizing hormone (LH) surge happens prior to ovulation.

The egg would be fertilized on the day you ovulated (the day of conception). It takes the fertilized egg around a week and up to 10 days to implant into the uterus. Once the egg is implanted then your body starts releasing pregnancy hormones HCG. Prior to implantation you are not pregnant. Prior to implantation your body does not even know that you conceived.

It takes a while for the HCG to build in your system. Your body’s reaction to HCG is what causes pregnancy symptoms. Home pregnancy test look for HCG to conclude pregnancy. You must have enough HCG in your urine to register a positive. There is no point in taking home pregnancy tests prior to when your period should be arriving. It is a waste of money and sanity because there is always the possibility you could be pregnant and it is not registering because you don’t have enough HCG in your system yet.

Most women do not experience pregnancy symptoms until they are six weeks pregnant. Some feel it as early as four weeks pregnant – but that would still be at least 28 days into your cycle. And this only pertains to women who ovualte before cycle day 16.

Do not take another test until the day your period should be arriving (if it doesn’t show). So for you since you do not chart and do not know how long your luteal phase is , take the test the 30th day of your cycle. And take the test with your first morning urine. That contains the highest level of HCG.

Susan asks…

LH surge showes happy face..are my calculations correct? or did I miss..?

OK…an update occured from my last post. I had originally tested with the answer strips and noticed the two lines except the control line was half dark and half light.. That test was this past Thursday. I took it as a positive, so we BBD that night and then again on Sat.
Yesterday I get up and notice some heavy fluidlike eggwhite consistency. I had an extra clearblue digital and it showed happy face!! Is it possible that I had LH surge for a few days? Unfounately, we could not BBD last night as my husband was feeling sick (cold)!!!..but we BBd this morning…Would I need to do it again tonight or just wait until tomorrow? Or should I just wait…TTC has been an emotional journey. I am afraid we may not be able to tonight…


Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Wait until tomorrow. Once a day is enough. Also visit the website www.peeonastick.com because it explains opk’s very well on there. It says all women have LH all cycle long just different levels at different times. Usually more right before ovulation but some tests are more sensitive so it might have showed a positive before ovulation if it was a more sensitive test. I would follow you body’s symptoms because ewcm usually means ovulation. Best of luck ttc!!!!

Betty asks…

CB Fertility Monitor: Cycle 1 Day 22 & still High?

Am wondering if it’s normal to have such a long high fertility pattern? I understand the monitor isn’t that accurate on Cycle 1, as it’s determining the pattern of my cycle.

It’s our 1st month TTC & my body has been having weird symptoms (bleeding from Day 14-16, lack of presence of cervical mucus as per before). My hubby & I are BD-ing every other day, in anticipation of the peak (egg) day.

Worrying thoughts are starting to jump in my mind! Any advice is much appreciated.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

If this is the first month of ttc and using the monitor, it is possible the monitor is just getting used to your body. If you have not seen a peak day, then you may not have ovulated that month. However, if you did ovulate, it is a good thing you bd every other day just to be safe. :-)

I use the monitor and have been ttc for 14 months. I think the monitor is pretty accurate. Unfortunately, I do not ovulate on my own, so my doctor gave me clomid to help with ovulation. I am currently on my third round. With the first two, I ovulated and saw the peak (egg). It is very exciting to finally see it.

Don’t worry. Since this is just your first month ttc, your monitor will get to know you. Once you have a LH surge you will see the egg. If for some reason you do not get a peak within a few months, I would suggest going to the doctor. The doctor can take a blood test and find out if you are ovulating.

Just stay relaxed. It could take a healthy couple up to a year to conceive. Good luck and lots of baby dust to you!

Sharon asks…

I have a question about the OPK…and ovulation….please help :) ?

On Monday, Aug. 11, with my first morning urine, I used OPK and got a positive…meaning my LH Surge was detected. My hubby and I BD’d about an hour afterward. It is now two days later, and I still never felt my ovulation cramping…I usually feel them every month. Does this mean that my OPK was incorrect….or did I not ovulate? Is it possible to detect a LH Surge but never ovulate in that cycle? Please help….i’m confused!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Yes, you can ovulate (as indicated by the LH surge as detected by the OPK) and at the same time NOT feel any signs of ovulation. Not all women experience symptoms of mittelschmerz (see wikipedia article below). The important thing is that you BD’d at least 72 hours prior to detecting the LH surge on the OPK and that you BD’d after detecting the positive OPK.

Good luck!
