How Long Is Your Lh Surge Supposed To Last

Maria asks…

Wonder if I had my period after a leep?

I had a leep done on June 3 and on June 10 I had my period and continue to spot after that…even before my leep procedure I’m really irregular never did have a normal period…Well on July 5 I had heavy bleeding and a lot of blood clots ( sorry TMI ) it lasted for 2 days and 3 days before July 5 I did had some cramps now I’m back on spotting….So my question is “Was that my peroid ? and How long am I suppose to be spotting after a leep? And is it possible that you can get pregnant after having a leep? How soon after can you get pregnant after having a leep? Thanks for you time Aloha

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

You can go back to trying once you return to your regular ovulation cycle. It’s hard to say if that was your period– I mean even a doctor couldn’t know for sure because it depends if you had an LH surge and ovulated. I have high risk HPV but haven’t done a LEEP as my cells are only mild still (praying they don’t become severe with the pregnancy).

I would start buying ovulating tests strips and track your cervical mucus to try and figure out your cycle. Also, I have irregular periods and went on Vitex…well, the first month of taking it, I got pregnant so it must have done something for my cycle. I took it in liquid form for the first 14 days of my cycle two times a day…just mixed with a bit of water and shot it.

Good luck to you and Aloha (wish I lived in Hawaii)

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

That is the strangest looking chart I’ve seen in a long time. To be honest, I’m not sure that you’ve ovulated at all. You’ve continued to have fertile CM after your supposed ovulation, which is a pretty sure sign that progesterone is not in your system yet. However, if you did indeed ovulate, then CD10 would be the day going by temps– and that’s going by official charting rules, not FF rules. So FF didn’t mess that up. Your current CD11 user-corrected O date actually doesn’t make as much sense as CD10. If you did ovulate in there somewhere, then you should stop using OPK’s. It’s possible to get secondary LH surges late in the LP, so it’s best not to use OPK’s after O because it will just mess with your mind. As for your symptoms, they all are just normal symptoms that many women get regardless of whether they’re pregnant or not.

Also, it’s probably best to post chart-questions on the forums at FF, not here. There aren’t many charters on this website– they’re all on FF.

Good luck!

Question about ovulation tests?

I did an OPK for the last few days, one day i got a negative then the following day i got a positive. I tested the day after that to check as well and it had gone back to negative. We BD on the night i got the positive. When will i have ovulated? I thought it was supposed to be between 12-36 hours after first positive so i was expecting the test to show positive for a second day. I have been putting temps into fertility friend and it hasn’t detected ovulation yet and my temps have been the same for about 4 days

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I know the opk (ovulation predictor kit) says that you will O (ovulate) 12-36 hours after a positive but sometimes I think it takes me a little longer, like 48 hours.
Also, sometimes your LH surge (what the tests look for) are very short, so short that if I don’t test twice a day I might miss it.
Some cycles I will only have one positive test and it will be negative 12 hours later and some cycles I will have positive tests for days.
Most people suggest to stop testing after you get your positive or it will only make you crazy.
I bet you ovulated12-48 hours after your test showed your surge..

It usually takes 2 mornings past ovulation for my temp to raise, that’s normal too.

Not pregnant. Not ovulating. Help!?

Okay I downloaded this app last month & im quite new to it but I figured I would try it anyway. Its called Ovuview. I been using it to track my period & my ovulation. However, before I downloaded it, I believe it was the 14th or 15th I started my period or so I thought…It was 3 spot. Sorry if tmi but….one spot was like dried up spilled soda & the other 2 were like bright red blood clotty spots smaller than a dime. I thought this was my period but thats all I had. I waited all week to bleed some more. Nothing. So about a week & then a two week mark I took a pregnancy test yesterday. Negative. So im like alright well that was wierd. So within those 2 wks I took 3 ovulation tests of course spreading them out from when im suppose to ovulate & when im fertile bc Ovuview keeps track of it, negative. So im a bit confused if im not pregnant why are my ovulation tests coming up negative. Ive been having trouble concieving for a long time I really dont want any more obstacles. Im losing hope & really starting to think I cant have kids =/

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Lindsey, you probably just missed your ovulation day because three tests is not enough to find it. The tests look for LH surge which only happens 12-30 hours prior to ovulation. So you have to really be precise to catch it.

Here are some tips I used and it worked for me!
1. First buy a LOT of ovulation test strips, not 3, you can get 40 for $10 on amazon.com as little strips of paper.
2. Calculate which day you need to begin testing by looking at this chart: http://www.fertilityplus.org/faq/opk.html
3. When you test, unlike a pregnancy test, do NOT use your first morning urine. The second or third urine will have LH in it. Test at test the same time (more or less) every day.
4. When you get to in your cycle where you think you should be ovulating soon take the test every 12 hours.

To conceive in a way that optimizes sperm health:
Begin having sex every 36 hours beginning on the day you test.
When you get a positive LH surge have sex every 24 hours for four days. After sex lay with your pelvis elevated on some pillows for at least 45 minutes.

IUI/ovulation question?

I asked this earlier and got no answers, so i figured I would try again, try # 3 , not trying to be a pest, but I need some advice before I go in… not stressing is hard :-) !!
Hello,
Ok so, this is supposed to be my first IUI cycles . I used pure FSH injections,CD 3&4 at 150IU, CD 5 at 225 and CD6,7 & 8 were at 75 . On CD 7 I had an untra sound to check progress and I had 3 lead follies at 14mm . He said I had a few others that he did not want to further stimulate . This was on Thursday . I am supposed to go back on Sunday for an ultra sound and to trigger if they are ready and then have an IUI about 24 hours later . I normally don’t ovulate on my own and when I do, my fertile CM is very thick . This month I took evening promrose oil and some extra vitamins . I am worried because I seem to have loads of CM that is nice and stretchy and fluid and I started to check my cervix yesterday and it was higher and slightly open in the afternoon and by evening it was REALLY hard to reach and even more open , This morning, It was still very high but extremely soft and wet and even more open then last night . Before anyone says anything, Yes I made sure I washed my hands with anti-bacterial soap . So I am worried that I will ovulate early and not be able to get my iui . With the time difference ( we are stationed overseas ) I will see my Dr in about 26 hours . I am on CD9 today, will be on CD 10 tomorrow when I see my RE . I took my last FSH injection yesterday on CD 8 . So I guess my questions are, Are my ovulation signs( IE:fertile CM and cervix signs) just more pronounced because of having multipule follies when I normally have none or 1? Do you guys think I will still be able to have an IUI? OR am I worried about nothing? Like will my follies stop growing because I stopped the injections ? and lastly, will 24 hours between the trigger shot be long enough b4 my IUI? Thanks guys, I’m just so nervous…

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I’m not sure how your doctor does it, but mine had me use ovulation predictor kits twice each day just in case I detected a surge and we had to schedule my IUI early. I’m not sure that all your extra fertile CM means you will ovulate earlier than expected, but I’d definitely call your RE and ask. I don’t remember getting any extra CM myself, but each woman is different. For me, I get fertile CM about 3 days before I actually ovulate. So you might be in the clear. I know we never had to schedule my IUI earlier than planned because never once did I produce the LH surge on my own before the trigger shot. So yes, your ovulation signs might be more pronounced because of the extra follicles, and their development won’t be further artificially stimulated since you are no longer taking injections. The trigger shot is meant to replace the LH surge your body would usually produce, so 24 hours is plenty of time. It’s normal to be nervous in your situation! I know I was, and I second-guessed everything. Now I have 2 1/2 year old twins conceived after 2 failed IUIs and one very successful IVF, and all the stress was worth it. Just hang in there, and ask questions of your RE whenever you have them. That’s what all those doctors and nurses are there for, and they’re experts on all things infertility related. Good luck, and tons and tons of baby dust your way! If you need to talk to someone who’s been through infertility treatment, message me any time. It’s been a while, but I definitely know what it’s like!
