User :   Hi I am a 23 year old female that was on birth control pills for about 6 years. I quit taking them in September 2010. My husband and I are ttc. So far no luck. I know that it has only been a few months.However, I have been using the ovulation kits, and I get my regular LH surge, but then after a few days the line got SUPER dark overtime. I have had positive LH surge for about 9 days now. It does appear the line is lightening up a little. I was testign my first urine morning but then I quit. I also looked up PCOS and I dont have that, I also took a UCG test and it was neg. as well. After reading a bunch of things on the "wonderful" internet I came across a person who said that my LH surge maybe too high and I will need to get treatment. My question is should I be concerned or is it "okay" to have 9 days of LH surge? I also dont produce a lot of EWCM. Thanks

User :   hello?
Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   Please continue
User :   But I figured that would be easier to detect my lh surge and when I am ovualting. but I have had like 9 days but today the line is gettin more faint. My question is should I be concerned?
Doctor :   Do not worry , these are due to the disturbances in the hormone levels
Doctor :   i would advice you not to go for hormonal preparations
Doctor :   rather rely on calender method where the attempts are made in a natural fertile period of your cycle
User :   Should I at least have them checked out? Or its possible to cont. to just get positives
Doctor :   i would consider it better to be checked
User :   I do whichi is also whenI intially test positive for LH surge. But things say LH surge should last for e three days, mmine is 9 days
Doctor :   get the LS and fsh levels done where you will have a reference point when to start natural methods
Doctor :   yes, Lh surge is for three days on maximum, but the delay in you is due to the hormonal imbalance
User :   ok.
Doctor :   the normal fertility is expected after a time of 3 to 4 months after stopping any hormonal contraception
User :   OK so I will just call my doctor monday to get it checked ou then
Doctor :   ok, fine
Doctor :   that would be right
User :   what area do you specialize in?
