Hi Twiglett, but if I have ov'd, why do I still have a lh surge? I'm wondering whether to drag dh back to bed for more bding.

my thoughts exactly

can I leave ds in front of the tv or is that really bad parenting?

LOL bunny . I presume he no longer has a nap? Well, CBeebies is sooo educational, don't you think, it really expands their minds to be left in front of it for a while (especially Clifford). That's my exucse anyway, and I'm sticking to it.

Sorry, I can't answer your actual question though. Do you get any other sign like pains, mucus etc?

Maybe you've just released 2 eggs this month and consequently had a biggger surge (ooooh twins - how exciting, but rather you than me!).

Bunny - STOP testing when you get a surge!! You drive yourself insane!! I did this and was very concerned that I had days of surges cos I carried on testing. As long as you had neg's previous to the surge it is normal so don't worry!!! You're also getting a temp rise so ov is defo occuring!!!!!!!! BTW, did you take your temp??


bunny2 · 07/03/2004 20:55

Hi Quacks. My temps are all over the place - possibly cos I was dancing in a nightclub till 3 this morning!! FF hasnt pinpoited ov yet but I did another stick and there was no surge line so I guess I ovd yesterday. Poor dh, he was made to perform at 3.45 this morning

Hi Bunny2,

OPK's actually work on two misleading principles namely that a rise in LH is immediately followed by ovulation and also usage of these kits assume one rise in LH every month. Both of these statements are certainly untrue.

These kits measure LH hormone. If you are one of many women who produces excess levels of LH (a common ovulation problem called polycystic ovaries) then these kits can give false readings.
For these reasons it is best not to use them at all.

If your periods are irregular (i.e a cycle length of less than 21 days or more than 35 days OR with a variation of more than 4 days from month to month) would seek a blood test from GP to assess your hormone levels properly.

With best wishes

808 state
