Lh Surge And Ovulation Pain

Lizzie asks…

OPK test confusion?

I had a positive back on Aug. 30 then it tapered off. So we did the baby dance on 28-31st (with maybe a couple for added ‘insurance’! ;) I even had ovulation ‘pains’ (or so I thought) on the 29th. Today I tested again and it was denfitley a positive again, even more so than the last one??! The reason I tested again is that I’ve read conflicting things about them and am just trying to get a gauge on what’s normal for me and my body.
I did read somewhere that you can gear up with the LH Surge and may not release an egg(because of stress, illness etc etc)..in which case it would ‘try again’ which would result in another LH Surge.
I should be due for my AF around the 15th.
Anyone else in the same boat?

Ovulation days how do you know?

How do you know when your firtle or ovulation , I never get the hang of it , ,

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

FERTILE = Ability to conceive

OVULATION (in animals we call it HEAT ESTRUS) = The day the ovaries releases a mature Ovum.
The OVUM once released, it will remain alive for 24 hours only. So a lady will be fertile for 24hours
only in each cycle

Here is full work out of ovulation determination:
Physical symptoms of Ovulation is almost NIL in human. Because Human, Bonoboo and Dolphins has CONCEALED OVULATION. Hence no pheromones release as in other mammals.

1. However, there are some gifted women will experience, MITTELSCHMERZ PAIN during ovulation The symptoms of MITTELSCHMERZ PAIN are:

* Pain in the lower abdomen, just inside the hip bone.

* The pain typically occurs about two weeks before the menstrual period is due.

* The pain is felt on the right or left side, depending on which ovary is releasing an egg.

* The pain may switch from one side to the other from one cycle to the next, or remain on one

side for a few cycles.

* The pain sensation varies between individuals – for example, it could feel like uncomfortable

pressure, twinges, sharp pains or cramps.

* The duration of pain ranges anywhere from minutes to 48 hours

2. Billings vaginal mucous method- Normally, the vagina will be dry.

Unless she is sexually stimulated

During ovulation

3. Increase in cervical fluid secretion — which many women just notice that towards the middle of their cycle they are a bit more moist. This can make sex easier because you usually don’t require lubrication from outside sources. Women also report feeling more sexually attractive and attracted to your mate. The good news is that men too have the same feelings when your secretion increases.

Increase MUCOUS Cervical secretion during ovulation will give positive Spinbarkiet test. Normal cervical mucous secretion can be stretched for about 2 to 3 cm before getting ruptured. Due to increased mucoidal secretion of the cervix, the mucous may be stretched for more than 6cm.

4. Cervical position method. –You can easily check the position of your own cervix. Simply wash your hands and stick a finger or two inside your vagina and feel the cervix. When you are not fertile you will notice that your cervix is harder and not open. Your cervix will feel about the consistency of the end of your nose.

When you ovulate the cervix is easier to reach, a bit softer and slightly open to receive sperm. At this point your cervix may feel more like your ear lobe.

5. BASAL BODY TEMPERATURE shifts. If you are tracking your basal body temperatures you can see where your temperatures shift downwards then suddenly spike upwards. This is also an indication of ovulation. This requires that you take your temperature on a daily basis.

6. Luteinising Hormone Surge. This one requires testing with ovulation prediction kits (OPK). This involves spending money to purchase test kits that measure the amount of LH in your urine.

7. Saliva ferning test – Due to increase Luteinising Hormone when the saliva is dried on a glass slide and upon drying it, the saliva will arborize to a pattern of a fern leaf. The saliva arborization can be well visualize under magnifying lens.

8. Ultra Sound / Sonogram .

Sandra asks…

I dont get it! Yesterday I got a gobb of egg like discharge and tonight I am…..?

Getting a pinching feeling (I always do when I ovulate) in my lower left abdomin but my ovulation preditcor tests have shown negative every night for the past 5 nights, even tonight!

Are the tests wrong? I am on day 15 of my cycle.
I thought if you get the “pinching feeling” or cramping it means you are definatly ovulating….but why did the test never show positive???

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

It’s possible to have pain related to ovulation in the days leading up to ovulation, at the moment of ovulation, and after ovulation as the egg is contracted down the tube. Or, if you are only testing once a day you might miss the LH surge and ovulate without seeing a +OPK.

Lisa asks…

Is this ovulation pain?

I am on day 10 of my cycle and I am feeling period-like cramping. My husband and I just started TTC this month so I am still learning, and never really paid a lot of attention to my cycle and different symptoms. Could this cramping be ovulation pain or is it too early for that?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Yes, it sounds like ovulation. Most women ovulate about 2 weeks after their last period, assuming they have a normal 28 day cycle. Other symptoms of ovulation are high sex drive, watery, eggwhite cervical mucus that is stretchy and tender breasts. Another way to know if you are ovulating is by using Ovulation Predictor Kits. It detects the LH surge in your urine, therefore warning you that ovulation is approaching.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Yes, you can get pregnant if he pulls out, especially if he didn’t pull out in time. Also, pre-ejaculate can contain sperm.

Yes, the LH levels go back down after ovulation. The LH surge can last anywhere from 24-48 hours.
