I think I ov'd yesterday - can there be a big swing in pH according to hormonal balance? That is, is the only oH that really matters around when you ov or will it be about the same if you test any time in the cycle? Thanks again for all your great insight!
Sorry this too me so long to respond too, we had severe flooding and our power was out for 3 days!

A PH of 7 is certainly boy territory, considering that it's after you O'd you were probably even more alkaline during O YIKES! PH does change after O, but to more acidic mean a lower number!
PH is most important right before O, during and right after. It's really best to maintain a lower PH the entire way through your cycle

Well, looks like I O'd on Thursday....CD30. My temps are up now. We've had the flu going through our house. Today is my turn. Ugh. Too early to be morning sickness. Bummer.

you shouldn't leave them in longer than 12 hours as you risk getting a yeast infection, but you wouldnt need it in there that long... it just helps get the sperm where they need to be, so really a few hours is enough. When I DTD at night, I would insert it and take it out when I woke up, and when we DTD during the day I left it in for about 4 hours. HTH
