All About Ovulation How to Figure Out IF and WHEN you are ovulating- Austin, Texas
Hi I am Sharon Kastoriano, fertilityacupuncturist Hi I am Sharon Kastoriano, fertilityacupuncturist and this is all about ovulation. Thisis a great place to start for someone who is just beginning to prepare for gettingpregnant The three things you going to learnabout in this presentation are: why do you need to know at all aboutovulation how do you know if you ovulate andthe most important thing how do you know when you ovulate? So why do you need to know about ovulation? Because you can only get pregnant aroundovulation time.
Ovulation is when an egg is releasedeach month from the ovary Ovulation is when an egg is releasedeach month from the ovary and the egg needs to be fertilized by thesperm in order to develop into an embryo which then grows and becomes a baby. Soobviously knowing about ovulation is the most importantthing that we need to know about when trying to get pregnant. Knowing ifyou ovulate is also essential. I often get asked how do I know if I ovulate. If your period is regular.
Most likely you are ovulating each monthand by regular i mean most likely you are ovulating each monthand by regular i mean your period comes once a month.That youknow when to expect your period It could be every 28 days or every 30 or avariation on that but if there is a regularity to it thenyou are most likely ovulating. Here and there I have heard of some women who had very regular periods but did not ovulate or release an egg each month but this is not that common. However, ifyou never know when to expect you period sometimes you go for weeks or monthswithout a period.
Then it may mean that there is an issuewith ovulation. then it may mean that there is an issuewith ovulation. It does not in any way mean you won't be to get pregnant Just that it might be a little bit moredifficult. So if you do not have periods that come regularlythat I think it's a good idea to see your to explore furtherany issues with ovulation. Now let's get to the most importantquestion how do you know when you ovulate? Let'sstart by taking a quick look at the basic menstrual cycle.
This picture shows a 28day menstrualcycle. A menstrual cycle is split into two This picture shows a 28day menstrualcycle. A menstrual cycle is split into two halves The first half is when you get yourperiod. Then your period ends and then the body begins to buildback up the juicy lining in the womb or the uterus getting ready for pregnancy. Ovulation is when the egg is released. Ifthe egg is fertilized by sperm it becomes an embryo and if it implants in the lining of theuterus then pregnancy begins.
If the egg is not fertilized, then the eggbreaks down If the egg is not fertilized, then the eggbreaks down and this sends a signal to the body thatthere is no pregnancy. and then after a few more days yourmenstrual cycle ends and then you get your period which is the start of the next menstrualcycle. So how do we calculate when we ovulate? Let's start simply by first making a note ofthe date when you get your period. Day one, which is the first day of your menstrualcycle is the.
First day of real bleeding. I know that some women first day of real bleeding. I know that some women have some spotting before the periodbegins but this doesn't count. The first real bright red bleeding isthe first day of the menstrual cycle So make a note of that date and thenmake a note of the date of the next period and then count the days in between. Forexample, if you get your period on September 1st and then get the nextone on September 29th, your cycle is 28 days in length. Ovulation occurs roughly 14 days before you get your period.
Why is My Ovulation Test Positive for 5 Days in a Row
Why is my ovulation test positive for 5 daysin a row? Even I know it should not be like Why is my ovulation test positive for 5 daysin a row? Even I know it should not be like that. Are you sure you aren't trying pregnancytests instead? It is time for me to ovulate, but it shouldnot be positive this long. You're right. It should only be positivefor the day the ovulation hormone surges. That's the hormone the ovulation test isreading. The hormone is normally high the day beforeor the day of ovulation. It may still be a little high the day after ovulation, but isfalling back toward normal.
So why is my level high? So why is my level high? I'm assuming you are not staring at thesame test, expecting it to change. Or using the same urine sample. These are different ovulation tests. If they all came from the same batch, it ispossible they are all bad, but that is unlikely. Check to see if the control strip looks rightto determine if the test itself is bad. I know that if the pregnancy test controlstrip is not glowing to ignore the main strip result.
However, five days positive in a row wouldbe unusual. However, five days positive in a row wouldbe unusual. It seems to be normal for me. Are you taking fertility meds that could bestimulating ovulation? If I were, I'd be afraid to get pregnantfor fear of quadruplets. If you are not doing fertility treatments,the most likely cause is polycystic ovaries. Oh, no. That means the positive ovulationtests are as bad as a positive pregnancy test for a guy. A positive pregnancy test by a guy means heprobably has prostate cancer. Cysts on the.
Ovaries will put out extra hormones and messwith your hormones, but it is not life threatening. ovaries will put out extra hormones and messwith your hormones, but it is not life threatening. I think there's a most of the time disclaimer. The cysts on the ovaries do mean you are morelikely to have pain at ovulation, some bleeding internally when multiple eggs release, andhormonal imbalances that decrease your odds of conception. And here I was worried about multiples. Actually, polycystic ovaries does increaseyour odds of multiples, along with mood swings, bursting cysts mistaken for appendicitis andthe risk of ectopic pregnancy.
How do they treat it? How do they treat it? It can involve removal of the ovaries. I want to have kids. To get your hormones under control, birthcontrol is often used, especially with ovarian pain at ovulation. Then you try your mightiestthe one month you want to get pregnant. And then hope for nothing more than twins.
