Early ovulation

I usually ovulate between cd14-16 but this month I detected a surge cd9 and dried up immediately (I usually surge and o on the same day). I'm annoyed as I hadn't started BDing. I started getting the flu cd11 and is now cd12. Could I have another surge because of illness or is that it for the month. I have a leutal phase of 16 days so does that mean a 25 day cycle (as opposed to normal 30-32). Sorry so many questions!

Must be the month for it. My monitor says OV is over and it's only cd13!

Why don't you keep testing, just in case?

Last year I was sick and my monitor said I was oving but then my period didn't come for 29 days after that.

So not sure if it was because I was sick?

Sorry if that doesn't really help I just wanted to share my experience.

My point is I must have ov'd later smile

It must be the month for it! I usually have O around CD12/13 but this month I haven't detected a +ve OPK at all (which is unusual for me). I have been temping this month as well though and according to that it looks like I may actually have O'd on CD10! Luckily we had been DTD before then anyway but it I guess it goes to show you should keep DTD all month just in case....I am now CD19 and still no +OPK so we are still going just in case I O again or am just just late....

Defintely not an exact science! Good luck!

oh me too - I am usually pretty reg 27/28 days with ov d13-16 but this month had all the signs about d10 and now AF 12 days later, making a 22 day cycle?! WTF?! Not v helpful when TTC, thinking maybe the constant scrutinising of my cycle has caused this...good luck all!

Green - I'm the same. Going to keep dtd till around cd25ish just in case!

twinklestar2 Sun 06-Jan-13 01:34:30

To add: my monitor said I ov'd on cd11 and we started dtd on cd9, hope that wasn't too late.

Well I've had another surge today-CD13 so this cycle certainly a bit messed up! Got chronic flu at the moment so that's probably what has caused this.

Ladies - I would keep going if you have an early surge or suspect that you have O'd early (eg. temps etc). I have just got a smiley face at day 20!! 8 Days later than normal....would have missed it if I hadn't kept testing and dtd!

Good luck!

(ps. twinklestar sounds like DTD CD9 for an ovulation on CD11 sounds perfectly timed to me!)

Def agree with carrying on dtd just in case. Annoying though as we spend so much money on OV sticks, you'd think they would work grrrr.

How are you getting on tea?

TeaAndABiscuit Mon 07-Jan-13 09:46:07

Hello :-)

I'm hauled up at home with flu still. I don't temp so don't know for sure but I don't think I've ovulated yet despite the two short surges. I need to get some more sticks as I've now run out now! How about yourself?

PS Boots currently have eight pounds off Clearblue 20 packs of OPKs.

twinklestar2 Mon 07-Jan-13 16:28:32

The CBFM doesn't let you test after its detected your peak so I'm going to dtd eod for the next week or so just in case.

Hope you feel better soon!

twinklestar2 Sat 12-Jan-13 22:28:01

How's it going tea?

If you routinely ovulate at a certain time then it would be odd. I ovulate from day 10 to day 15 so I poas on internet cheapies that let me poas up to 3 times a day from day 8. Good luck OP.
