Lh Surge Means Pregnant

Lizzie asks…

Are my chances of getting pregnant reduced?

My periods started on May 4th. my cycle is 26-27 days. my next due date is on May 31st. I started taking the ovulation test and found it positive on may 15th (there were two lines with same color but both are not very dark).I tested on may 16th and the the test was negative.

We had intercource on 15th and before and after that day too. Most of the sites say i ovulate on 17th and we didnt have intercourse on that day. Are my chances reduced because of this?

I am badly waiting to become pregnant and trying since 6-7 months. When can i take the HPT? Please advice…

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Ovulation tests usually predict an LH surge that indicates that you will ovulate 24-48 hours after that surge; which means that it doesn’t turn up positive EXACTLY ON the day you ovulate. That being said, it is possible that you ovulated on the 17th. However, sperm can live up to 5 days under favorable conditions (ie ovulation, or around the time you would ovulate), so not all hope is lost!! However, the closer you get to your ovulation day to have intercourse, the higher the probability of pregnancy will be.

You can take a HPT after you miss your period. Anything before that may give you a false negative (testing too early) or a false positive (chemical pregnancy).

If this isn’t your month, don’t despair! It’s best to make love every day or every other day during the week you expect to ovulate to increase your chances, so if this isn’t your month, you could try that next month ;) Baby dust to you!!

How can I get Pregnant?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I think you already know sex…… People come on ! That’s not what the poster means ! ~~~~~~ Well, I like ovulation kits… Clear Blue & Easy digital, is my favorite … It detects your LH surge, which gives you 24-36hrs before you ovulate…… Or check your cervical mucus everyday……. When its a watery / clear / look, your not ovulating….. When it gets stretchy, like the feel of an egg, your ovulating…….

I don’t really know much about it, but here is what i found:

Causes

PCOS is caused by a hormonal imbalance that results in ovulatory malfunction. Relatively low levels of follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) mean that although egg follicles grow each month, they don’t develop sufficiently. This problem is coupled with the fact that luitenizing hormone (LH) levels remain high, meaning that there is no LH surge mid-cycle. As a result, the partially ripened eggs fail to burst free and remain on the ovary, forming small cysts.

Some sufferers of PCOS never ovulate, while others may do so sporadically; intermittent egg release or lack of egg release results in irregular or absent periods as well as diminished fertility.

Another effect of PCOS on fertility is increased levels of the male hormone androgen, which can affect hair growth and cause acne, and has also been linked to obesity.

There are two types of PCOS treatment that improve fertility:
* Medication: Clomiphene (Clomid) encourages the production of FSH, thereby potentially correcting the hormonal imbalance. If Clomid doesn’t work, injected drugs like Pergonal, Humegon or Metrodin may be used.
Treatment with any of these normally requires supervision by a fertility specialist in order to ensure the ovaries don’t become hyper-stimulated. It is important to note that there is a likelihood of multiple pregnancies (such as twins) with any fertility drug
* Laparoscopic Ovarian Diathermy (LOD):This is a surgical procedure similar to a laparoscopy. It involves burning part of the ovaries with a laser, which usually corrects hormonal imbalances.

What would this cramping mean?

My LH surge was up for the first day on Oct 13. We had sex on the 13th and the 15th. Today I feel like I am kind of cramping. Nothing painful just tightning feeling in my lower abdomen. What do you think is causing this and what does it mean? Btw, we are trying to conceive. Thanks!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Have you had a period since the time of intercourse? If not, you could be pregnant and might be loosing it! If you have not had a period, I suggest getting a home pregnancy test to confirm whether or not you are pregnant. If it says yes, I would make a B line to my Gyno ASAP!
Wishing you the best of luck and prayers for conceiving and carrying to term!!!

I have had 3 neqative pregnancy tests. But no period. I’ve had ah Lh surge detected january 19th and had sex then. Just trying to see what’s qoin on? Help Plz Need All Answers

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

You could be pregnant, a blood test will be accurate. You also could be late for your period. It all depends on your situation and how regular your periods are. Stressing out weather you are pregnant or not can cause a delay in your cycle too.
