LH Surge and Actual Ovulation


Hi,

Does anyone know a little bit well a lot more than me about the surge affect.

I had 2 smiley faces yesterday, one in the morning and one at midnight. So technically it said I should ovulate within the next 24/36 hours. So just as an experiment I checked again at midnight, got 2nd smiley then I checked again this morning and it was no surge.

So does the no surge mean I have ovulated already or I could ovulate today?

I don't do temp checking but was just wondering if anyone knew????

Hey, I've been wondering similar things these past couple of days... I've just found this info on a website:

"Once the LH surge has been detected, successful fertilization is most likely to take place one to three days following the LH surge - with peak fertility at 36 hours post-LH surge."

http://www.babyhopes.com/articles/ov...test-work.html

So its likely you will ovulate over next couple of days

It also says:
"Another important aspect to keep in mind is that you are looking for the surge in hormones or the first positive ovulation test. Other positive ovulation tests after this one, i.e. multiple positives several days in a row should not be given importance. This is because the first test lets you know that ovulation should occur within 12-72 hours and intercourse during this time frame is very important if you want to become pregnant."

Good luck!xxx

The LH surge is in the 2 days before you ovulate, so say you get smileys on a thursday and friday, you'd actually ovulate on the saturday or sunday.
But obviously sperm lives for 72+hours in the cervix so start BDing as soon as you get the smiley, then for the following 4 days I think. That's the way I understand it anyway!

I have been wondering the same thing! I got the little smiley face (confirmed on a different kind of opk as well)at about 8a on 1/10 and then again about 3:30 that afternoon. By the evening it was gone... So, if my ovulation occurred on the shorter range of the spectrum (say 12 hrs instead of 24) or if I missed the surge the night before, the day after the surge might be too late?

I got my smiley face on the first day and the second day. The second day is when we BD'd and then two days after that. As a previous poster stated, the sperm can live for some time. The surge in LH is what makes the egg pop free from the ovary. So you should be BDing and catch that eggy!

It can happen anywhere between 12 to 36 hours, so dont waste any time! Sometimes I get a surge just 12 hours before, other times its longer, so dont count on it being the same each cycle either. The other thing too, just because you get a surge doesnt mean you will go onto ovulate, you can gear up to O and then stop, gear up and go onto O further on down the track, so unless you use bbt with it to confirm that you actually O'd, or you have some wicked symptoms like O pains etc, you need to keep covering your bases just incase it was a false start. You typically start to bd once you get a +opk and dont stop for three days. Good luck catching the eggy hun!

I think i may have missed it then - not to worry. I just went off clearblue saying 12 - 36 hours, never mind,

Hope everyone has managed to hit theirs x x

Yeah...I have read that the OPK is positive 24-36 before you actually ovulate. I would use the OPK and get the surge and BD that night so something would be waiting on eggo to arrive....
