    LH = lutenizing hormone. You get a surge of LH just prior to ovulation. OPKs can measure the surge of LH in order to predict when you are gearing up to O.

    LH surge is an indication of your body gearing up to O. The only way to tell for sure if you actually have O'd (without an ultrasound) is to chart your temps daily and look for a thermal shift.

    If you click on my watermellon ticker below it will take you to my charts. I don't use OPKs, but can still tell when I O based on my temperatures.

    Asking questions is never dense! You should sign up on fertility friend - you can link to the sign up page through my ticker. Then take the tutorials on the website. They are very helpful and don't take much time at all.

    The temp rise is due to the progesterone that is starts being produced after ovulation. So the OPKs can be used to predict when you might be O'ing and the temps can confirm if you actually did O.

    I'm trying for #3 as well. I always hope it will happen the 1st cycle too but that hasn't happened yet. It took 6 months for my ds and 3 months for dd been trying this time for only 1month so hopefully will get that positive this month.
