Thanks for writing to us

LH surge levels before ovulation are more than 20 mIU per ml

These levels drop within 24-48 hrs

Yes , the smoking and high nicotine levels have been found to be associated with increased hormonal secretion from anterior pituitary so LH levels can go high up , more than the normal surge values

Best wishes

Any further query is most welcome

Welcome back

Yes there is higher chance of ovulation which can be detected at home with the help of ovulation kit available OTC.

Instructions are written over it and it is to be done with urine sample.

I would suggest you to wait for the next cycle as we don't know what hazardous effects marijuana causes on the ovum.

It is better to stop it and conceive with good quality of egg.

Best wishes


Take care
