Doctor :   hello
User :   hi, I havent had my period since beginning of January or around there...have taken hpts negative and blood work negative for pregnancy..a week ago they put me on depo..i decided to pay around with the opk tests..i have had an LH surge for 4 days now?? is that normal??
Doctor :   may i know your age please ?
User :   thats play around with ovulation kits...never used one before..
User :   I am 42
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   now your concern is that LH surge vis the kit ?
User :   I thought LH surges only happened for 12-36 hours? mine has been for 4 days..I got the depo shot after negative blood pregnancy test cuz I would have been over 4 weeks along at the time...
Doctor :   now since you have been given DEPO that will cause fluctuations in the hormonal levels in your body, cause change in readings
Doctor :   the MOST accurate would be to get a lab test done
User :   oh ok..i was wondering if Depo could do that..cuz it was right after the shot it started..
Doctor :   yes it causes fluctuations
Doctor :   do you have any symptoms ?
User :   ok I wanted to be sure....cuz we do know I am not pregnant...I have mild back cramping and pain in the ovary areas at times...but other than that no other symptoms
Doctor :   well dont worry you are absolutely fine
Doctor :   the pain in the ovary area .is it constant ?
User :   no it comes and goes
Doctor :   how often do you get it ?
User :   a few times a day but nothing major...i know my lower back has been bothering me more..
Doctor :   ok . well rest is important
User :   yeah i have been working nonstop for about 12 days now.....I was wondering since i am having a surge can I still get pregnant on depo?
Doctor :   no you cannot, constant stress related work will make the back pain worse
Doctor :   OPK kits are just used as an estimate, the most accurate method is done in lab
User :   oh ok...well that answers my questions...thats probably why the back hurts..being on my feet all day...
Doctor :   your most welcome
Doctor :   take care of your self and do rest
User :   ok thanks a have answered my questions...and I appreciate ...thanks and have a great day...
Doctor :   your feedback is always appreciated
Doctor :   take care
User :   i will do that..thanks
Doctor :   have a good one
Doctor :   bye
