Second Lh Surge After Ovulation

Maria asks…

If an ovulation prediction stick can predict ovulation within 24-48 hours, then why do you need to test daily?

Wouldn’t it make sense that you could test every other day and still get the same results?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

The test measures the drastic peak in LH. It is necessary to test daily… And my suggests TWICE per day so you catch it as soon as possible. The LH surge has occured at LEAST 6 hours before a positive result shows in your system… But you won’t get positive results for more than one day… My endocronologist suggests that i start testing on day 11 of my cycle. I use the first test at 1:30 and the second test 8 hours later, 9:30. Never take it first thing in the morning, always wait until at LEAST the noon hour.

If you were to only test every other day you MAY completely miss the day that would have had the positive reading. When you see the positive reading you can stop testing because you WILL ovulate in the next 48 hours!

Trying to conceive and using OPK’s, when to have sex?

My hubby and I are ttc, this is our second month. We are using OPK’s and it just said positive, we had sex that night- was that to late to have sex? Also I went running right after, does that hurt the chances?

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Doesnt hurt the chances, because the LH predictors detect the surge in the hormone that happens right before ovulation.
The sperm can live in the birth canal for several days. Although, I wouldnt recomment going running right afterwards, because gravity will run its course (and i think you know what i mean…lol) So after intercourse, just take it easy.. You dont have to stand on your head or anything, but you really should lay down and help the lil swimmers get to where they gotta go. GOOD LUCK!! ;O)

Donna asks…

Signs and sympthoms of ovulating? Should i trust my body or the test kit for lh surge?

I think i ovulated before i actually got a positive for lh surge on the urine test. I think i had all the signs(pink discharge,bloating, ew cm, ,and cramping) of ovulation the day before i got the positive.

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I would try to go off of both. If you’re body and the kit are giving you two different times of conception, I’d just start having sex at the sign of the first one and keep it going past the second one! The more the merrier, eh!? Lol.

I’m not sure how much I trust the ovulation kits. My husband and I decided to start trying for a baby. Our first month, a friend of mine had a leftover ovulation kit that she gave me because she had just conceived, so I used it. I used the test strips the same time every day for the entire month as it said, and it NEVER showed an LH surge. Low and behold, I ended up getting pregnant that first month we were trying, so I had obviously ovulated!

Sharon asks…

Please any experiences with taking clomid?

My doctor put me on provera (medroxyprogesterone) 10 mg so I will get my period and he said if I don’t get my period by Jan 9th and I am not pregnant he wants to put me on clomid. The only thing I know about it is that it induces ovulation. But can anyone please share there stories either good or bad about taking clomid. I appreciate it so much thank you

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I was on Provera 10 mg for 10 days and Clomid 50 mg for days 5-9.

I had no side effects with the Clomid, but I got really bad headaches with the Provera, so I took that pill before I went to bed.

While I was on Clomid, my Doctor wanted me to use OPK’s starting on Day 10 of my cycle. I usually saw a LH surge on Day 17.

After my first cycle of Clomid, I got pregnant, but sadly miscarried at 5 weeks.

After my second cycle of Clomid, I am now 10 weeks pregnant and all is well.

Good Luck!

Nancy asks…

What to do when trying to get pregnant?

I want to start trying to get pregnant when my husband comes home from Iraq. He won’t be home until February. Is there anything that I should start doing now besides taking prenatals? I want to get pregnant as fast as possible. What should I start doing to prepare my body for a baby?

I am 25 and healthy. Not overweight. My last pap was normal. I do have a history of ovarian cysts and irregular periods. Things have been normal though for the past few months.

Thanks!!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Well it is a good thing you went to your doctor to have tests done. This can really help to alleviate stress while trying to have a baby. Stress can play a huge factor on when you conceive. My guess is that it is too soon to be ovulating. A few things that you can do to find out if you are ovulating: A) First Response makes ovulation sticks (packs of 7 ($20) or 20 ($40)) that you can buy in any store. If you purchase these, the best urine to use is your second urine of the day. Also, it suggests to start using the sticks on the 11th day from your first day of your period. Side note: if you experience multiple positive results don’t worry this just means that you could be catching your LH surge on it’s way up or down. B) Also, run your middle finger on the surface of your vagina to check your discharge. Once you have done that touch your thumb with the finger you just used to check it’s stretchiness. If the discharge stretches fairly far that is a VERY good sign that you are ovulating.Here is a good picture of what it should look like http://www.babyjava.net/mucicon1.gif C) Wash your hands and around the same time every day, standing up place one leg on a chair (or whatever you can find ) and insert your fingers into your vagina to feel the texture of your cervix. If it feels really soft like the inside of your lip then your body is getting ready for ovulation. A non-ovulatory cervix will feel like the tip of your nose. Try to do this every day so you get a feel of your vagina. Another thing to look for when doing this technique is if your cervix is sitting high (means ovulation time) or low (means no ovulation time). D) Another option would be to buy a basal thermometer from the store ($10) and measure your temperature every morning before you get out of bed. However, I do not use this option because I do not get adequate sleep. I use options A,B and C. Also, like I said before it is better not to get over stressed about it. When having sex with your partner try new and exciting things so it doesn’t become a full time job trying to get pregnant. Example, try out different sexy costumes, different positions or even if you are up to it introduce some sex toys into the bedroom scene. It really does make it more fun! I hope that this helped!
