LH surge ??


Hi All,

I am little confused about my ovulation.

Yesterday i took my ovulation test and noticed that the test line was darker than the control line.I took the test around 11:30 and then at 2:30 [ both tests with different sample showed that the test line was darker] , then i tested again at 3:30 and later in the evening at 7 [ but here the test line was lighter than the control line].

This morning i tested twice , at 8:30 and at 9:30 am, the test line was super dark compared to the control line. I also noticed that the test lines dont disappear for a very long time.
Can you please tell me what does all this mean ? Why do i see an increase in LH surge and then i dont see it.

I also want to mention that, 2 months ago i faced something similar to this. When i took a ovulation test using digital ovulation predictor kit and noticed that i got a smiley symbol [ only once] , it didnt appear after that at al and during the scan the nurse told me that the follicles have not grown and my progestrone blood test revealed that i didnt ovulate. Can there be a surge in LH for various other reasons as well ?

Kindly let me know your views....


Regards,
Candy!!

I don't know... I always use cheap ICs together with smiley face. Last month by testing at different times in the day with cheapys I noticed that the line could be dark, or super super dark (I suppose the LH surge was at its peak), but of course the smiley face is always the same, though when I look inside the lines are not always as dark when they give you the smiley face, so they "worry" me a bit now. (and it makes me wonder like you may if I don't always ovulate). I think I read the LH surge means the body "tries" to ovulate, but doesn't mean it will, to be honest though, I don't know XXXX

The LH surge happens before you ovulate, but it doesn't mean you will definitely ovulate. It is possible to get several positive OPKs and not ovulate at all - women with PCOS often get that (have they checked you for PCOS?)

have you tried other ways of tracking your ovulation in addition to opks? if you're checking your cm and cp as well as testing it might be less confusing
