Thanks for posting your query.

Under normal circumstances and usually, ovulation occurs once in menstrual cycle.

With reference to your case, your monitor has shown two LH surge, which I believe is due to some problem with your machine.

You can do pregnancy test if you miss your expected date of menses (end of this week).

I hope, I have answered your query. I will be available for follow up queries if any.

how in the future will i know when im ovulating is machine is picking up more than 1 lh surge,clomid will finish on day 7 so i should be expecting it around day 14,this would be my normal cycle but is delayed ovulation a common thing on clomid,as this is my first cycle i dont know what to expect,my monitor has always been accurate in past as i used it to track ovulation for 5 cycles before i began taking clomid

Thans for the query.

Delayed ovulation is not a common thing with clomid.

LH (leutinising hormone) surge occurs once in menstrual cycle i,e before ovulation.

For double confirmation you can use your machine along with ovulation detection strip (available in market for home urine test).

Other option is when your machine is showing lh surge, have a blood test for lh from some reliable laboratory as well.

Wishing you good health.
