Lh Surge Before Ovulation

  1. 1. Lh Surge Before OvulationUnderstanding Luteinizing hormonehttp://lhhormone.orgLizzie asks…Do you usually see egg white cervical mucous, before or duringovulation?I had sex last night and had a LH surge on my Ovulation Prediction Kit this afternoon but didnot have sex tonight but plan on it tomorrow. We were going to try and have sex every othernight. But tonight I seen egg white cervical mucous. My question is when do you usually seethis type of mucous and could have still have a chance with having sex before my LH surgebefore ovulation and before I actually seen the mucous?? TTC!Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:LH surge usually happens 24-48 hours before an egg is released, and EWCM can persist forseveral days through the ovulation period. So, if you had sex yesterday and plan on having sextomorrow, then you can definitely still conceive.But, if your partner does not have male fertility problems, there’s no reason you can’t have sexevery day. I do see the every other day quite a bit on TTC forums but was told by our doctorthat for men with good fertility, it’s ok to have sex every night during ovulation. When myhusband and I were ttc he had a sperm analysis, which came back good, so we had every otherday sex until I got the LH surge, then did every day sex for about 3-4 days. And now I’mpregnant. 1/6
  2. 2. Susan asks…Question about LH surge and ovulation.?Ok, so I may be a little bit confused, so please help me out.You get your LH surge before ovulation correct???The reason I ask is because around the 9/10th I kept feeling this little cramp and achey feelingaround where my left ovary would be, and also felt it some in my back so I figured I wasovulating. I started doing and OPK around the 1st to see when I would get my LH surge, andnothing ever showed. However today the 12th I got my surge on my OPK. So I’m confused.Can you ovulate and then get your surge? My CM is still a little liquidy (if that is even a word).Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:You get the surge 12-36 hours before you are due to ovulate hun x 2/6
  3. 3. Carol asks…How long should the urine be held back before LH surge is testedwith an Ovulation test ?Is it 2 hrs. or 4 hrs. ?Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:You shouldn’t drink or go to the bathroom 4 hours prior to taking the test. Liquids can dilute itand not give you a accurate answer.Helen asks…Ovulation Cramps, But no LH surge before…HELP!!? 3/6
  4. 4. So I have been using an OPK to help determine when I ovulate. Well I haven’t gotten apositive, but I think I am experiencing some ovulation cramps. Not sure though It kinda feelslike my period cramps..am I making any sense to anyone??? Someone Please help me…do ovulation cramps happen before or after ovulation???My guy doesn’t come home until the 18th….do you think I still have a chance??i have a 29 day cycle im on day 13.. just for the recordmy last period was on dec. 4Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:I didn’t get any cramps till after my ovulation date. I have been using an ovulation kit and anovulation calender and they both match up pretty well. I wouldn’t really rely on cramps to muchunless you are really in tune with your body. Just keep taking the test everyday, when it is time itshould show a positive. If you want go to www.mymonthlycycles.com and they can also helpyou track your most fertile days and when you ovulate as well.Nancy asks…Are there any circumstances under which an LH surge would notshow on a LH test before/at ovulation? 4/6
  5. 5. Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:Not sure.. But I had a positive OPK this month but didn’t ovulate… So I know how frustrating thisis..! Good luck!Sandra asks…Had sex 18 hours before detecting LH surge – Will it be a boy or agirl?Just found out I’m pregnant with third. As I have two boys, I have been trying to follow theShettles method to get a girl. That is, to have sex 2-3 days before ovulation. (To get a boy, youhave sex the day before and the day of ovulation). I have been tracking my cycle using theClearblue Fertility Monitor and normally have 3 HIGH days, followed by 2 PEAK days. I had sexon my second high day that night, and then the next day it had the third day of HIGH on themonitor. However, I did an additional Ovulation Predictor test at 2.30 pm the day after I hadsex, and it showed it had detected the LH surge. Therefore, I had had sex about 18 hoursbefore detecting the LH surge, and then ovulation occurs normally 24-36 hrs later.Just wondered what you thought if it would be a boy or girl? Please no answers about just beinggrateful I’m pregnant. I am – I want a healthy baby above all else, but just wondered whetherit’s more likely to be a girl than a boy?The reasoning behind having sex BEFORE ovulation for a girl, is because the male spermdon’t live as long, so by the time you ovulate, they should have died off, leaving the femalesperm there to fertilise the egg. Male sperm swim faster but die quicker (hence doing it atovulation to get a boy) whereas girl sperm swim slower but live longer. 5/6
  6. 6. Pregnancy Advisor’s answers: Sorry for the wacky answers, I don’t think these posters are familiar with the Shettles Method. Anyway, based on the Shettles Method your chances sound pretty good for a girl this time. Having sex 18 hours before your LH surge and then the surge itself means you are still 12-48 hours away from ovulation (with an average of 24 hours) means you gave those girl sperm plenty of time to reach that eggie and girl sperm live longer so there would have been girl sperm waiting for that egg by the time you ovulated–possibly 2-3 days later.
