I need some help estimating from some spotty blood work for my cycle since I don't have the luxury to test as frequently as optimal. Checked for release 1 day after getting a LH surge on the Clear Blue Easy Fertility monitor and a questionable LH surge on a urine stick the night before. Late cycle. CD 20 and 19, respectively.
Does this look like ovulation happened yet? Historically, my RE starts me on vaginal progesterone when Progesterone goes up ove 2.0. How long would it generally take for 0.9 to increase above 2.0? One day? Two days?
Also LH is a little low compared to other mid-cycle tests I've had. Usually it peaks slightly above 50. This is supposedly a full day after my peak, would it be normal for it to go down from 50 to 34.4 in a day? How fast does LH decline after peaking? Does it halve itself like Estrodial does after peaking and in one day or two?
Thanks ahead of time for this help. I'm afraid I may have started my progesterone too soon. The doctor's office gave me old results yesterday morning and the Lab would only confirm that my P level was different from what I was told, so I knew it had started going up. Bloods were drawn at 2:30 PM on May 18 and I started progesterone at 3 AM on May 20. Could that interfere with ovulation trying to happen if LH were still building?
Thanks for any part of this you are able to answer!View Thread

I finished my last pack of pills a few days ago. I purchased a ClearBlue digital ovulation kit so I can track my ovulation since I will stop taking birth control pills. The instructions said to start 11 days after the first day of my period, but out of curiosity, I tried it on the first day of my period.
After taking the test on Day 1 (the first day of my period), the ovulation test came back with a smiley face, which means my LH levels are high?
According to Clear Blue Fertility monitor, I had an Estrodial surge on CD 19 and LH on CD 20. Urinel LH strip suggested LH surge on evening of CD 19. This is very late for me (I am getting older), so I had blood work done late afternoon on CD 21. I use vaginal progesterone suppositories after release to support fertility as per my RE. I wanted to make sure there was a rise in my progesterone before starting the suppositories as this was an off cycle. I need a piece of info to assess possibility of a true surge myself.
My LH surges usually reach above 50. Is it possible that it had been double what this reads a day or two before? How quickly does the LH blood value go down after surging?
Not sure if it is worth getting retested today on CD 22. Doctor's office is closed tomorrow. RE practice is a bear to work with.when not officially monitoring with them. I am not asking for specific advice, but rather info on if an LH surge a day or two prior to a blood reading of 21.9 is a possibility. Had no CD 3 bloods done, but LH was in low 20s on CD 15--actually all above hormones were similar,

SO I am taking estradiol and a medroxy___. I am probably past this stage, but do I still need to take precautionary measures to NOT get pregnant? I had a number of health issues and went through menopause early (41) so I am now on these 2 products. I want to be intimate with my husband, but I have no drive, and at 46 I don;t want to get pregnant- how can I "get in the mood" and can I stop using condoms? Sounds like a stupid question, but I am unclear even after speaking to my OBGYN.View Thread
hello, my name is brittany. this past week i have had gas and non stop diarrhea, like i have never had before. im very uncomfortable and sometimes nauseas. i havent really been eating because everything either makes me feel sick (just from looking at it) or makes me feel like using the restroom. today my friend told me that someone she knows had diarrhea and found out she was pregnant. and it reminded me of the unprotected sex i had with my boyfriend. my period wont be for another week or so, i guess i m just wondering if this could be an early pregnancy sign or if im just letting this little comment get to me.. please help lol
