How come you have LH surge and you are not ovulate?
The luteinizing hormone (LH) surge is what triggers ovulation. Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) starts the growth of the follicle (which contains the egg). Oestradiol levels rise, then the LH surges triggers ovulation, and also the production of the corpus luteum, which produces progesterone to prepare your body for pregnancy.
Its possible to have an LH surge but not ovulate. Sometimes women can have a few mini surges before actually ovulating, so if you are using OPK, keep testing each day until it is negative, or check it against body temperature. The surge can occur, but the body may not release an egg due to stress, or illness. There is also a condition where the egg fails to pass through the wall of the ovary, and in women with PCOS, LH levels can be high, without ovulation.
1st Yes; So when you know you have your surge, you will be ovulating within 12-36 hours most likely. Since sperm can live up to 5 days inside the uterus, if you're trying to conceive you'd be best to have unprotected sex as soon as you surge and continue for 4-5 days. If you know approx when you surge each month anyway, go ahead a try for a couple days before the surge to make sure you have a healthy count of sperm waiting for when your egg is released. 2nd; It is not necessary that you will have to ovulate every time your lh surge.Some women have occurrences when they have an lh surge and still not ovulate.
Thank you for all that information this is very helpful
