OPT shows LH surge for 4 straight days - is this normal?
I have been using the OPT sticks daily and for the last 4 days in a row, the line has been dark. My last period started on 4/16 and my cycle is usually 28-29 days. So I guess I'm 19 days past AF. I am having some cramping in my ovaries over the past 4 days as well. I have read on these forums that most people only have the LH surge for 1 day so that made me curious as to why mine shows 4 days! Is it possible that I still haven't o'd? I'm assuming my DH and I should bd again tonight? Has anyone else experienced this or could you shed some light. Thanks.
Thanks for your posts. It does appear that the lines are almost as dark as the reference line. What are the body signs that you've ovulated? The ovary cramping is beginning to subside so does perhaps mean I've ovulated?
You may be one of those women that gets a few LH surges before the "real thing" happens. Just keep BDing if your OPK looks +. Are you charting along with it? Charting helps b/c you can actually confirm O instead of trying to take your best guess as to when it happened. HTH.
When I used my OPK's they would slowly get darker day by day and then after my surge was done, they would start fainting away. I suggest you BD for couple more days since your surge is just picking up, it may take another 36 hours. Do not worry about having surge for 4 days. Just BD and you will see!
