Throughout the menstrual cycle, a small amount of LH is produced, but during the middle of the cycle LH briefly and dramatically increases, and is known as LH surge. Elevated quantities of luteinizing hormone that facilitate ovulation are detected by ovulation tests through anti-LH antibodies contained in the sensitive testing membrane. Ovulation tests thus allow you to accurately predict when you will ovulate. A positive result on an ovulation test means that the woman will most likely become fertile over the next three days – with peak fertility at 36 hours following the LH surge.
Not sure if this is a good thing or not, but thought I'd let you know.
Based on the pics, your surge was at 5 PM....so 36 hrs after that would have been the peak.
Thanks, I really appreciate that. I was looking online as well and getting all kinds of conflicting information. The 36 hour thing is def clear, and I am guessing we DTD around my peak. At this point, it doesn't make sense to be sad about something that's already done. I had horrible back pain that kept me up last night and its back again today, which is my biggest symptom when I am pregnant (lots of 3am baths preggo with each kid). That coupled with not "drying up" is making me think we might be getting a little Christmas surprise...
