Question: hi I am trying to get pregnant im using clear blue digital pink opk yesterday morning there was a smiley face for the first time which indicated an LH surge so done the deed few hours later then took another test last night and this morning and the test was a circle which means negative......does that mean that im not pregnant and didn't ovulateor did because I only got that one smiley face once then after they were all negative results.....surely if you were fertile or pregnant the opk would still be on a smiley face?

Brief Answer: Mostly LH surge predicted on 1 day Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on HealthcareMagic. LH surge usually lasts for 48 - 50 hours during one cycle. Mostly the LH surge is predicted for just one day. Whenever it gets predicted, you need to have sexual intercourse the following day (which you have done). So you are mostly keeping on track this time. LH levels are normally suppressed in pregnancy. Hope it answers your query. Let me know if I can assist you further. Good luck Dr Vaishalee
