Positive LH surge 3 days in a row?


I've used an OPK for two months now and both months I got a strong positive LH surge for three days in a row. Anyone know why this may be happening, and does that mean I ovulate the day after the last positive? Will see a doc next week, but curious in the meantime.

I can't really answer your question, but I've just been reading info about OPKs and it said that some people can get positive for 3 days, but it could be because you have particularly high levels of LH. I don't know what that means really.
To be on the safe side I would DTD on all positive days and 2 days after.

Thanks, that's exactly what we did while waiting for the appt. w/the doc, I'm sure she will be able to tell me what it means.

This happens because when you test, you get a snapshot of your LH. For example, on day 1 of your positive OPK, you might have caught the surge on it's way up. On day 2 you caught the surge. On day 3 you caught it on it's way down. I almost always get 3 days of positive OPK's and usually OV on the 2nd or 3rd day I have the positive. This sounds confusing, but this is what happens. On my second positive OPK, I've caught the surge. 12 hours later, I ovulate. The following day I catch the surge on its way down but I actually already ovulated.

There is really nothing to be concerned about unless you are getting positives for many many days in a row. This site has lots of good info about OPK's http://www.peeonastick.com/opkfaq.html

Are you talking about positive ovulation tests? When this happened to me, I googled it and took a pregnancy test and I was pregnant.

I've also been known to have a + OPK three days in a row. (it just happened a few days ago, as a matter of fact).

See my response above. You are catching your LH surge on it's way up, then you are catching the peak of your surge, then the next day it still looks positive, but you have actually already ovulated, but your LH is still in your system but making it's way down.

Literally just had that happen to me for the first time. Positive OPK on Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Thankfully last night was negative. According to my Ovulation Chart I ovulated on Sunday, so not sure what the Monday positive was???
