So, I've had a really stressful few weeks and feel pretty certain that my body is going to give up on ovulating this month. I am right at the point that I should be ovulating. I have got ferning and I've got EWCM (just less than usual). The opk was starting to show an LH surge, with the first faint line starting to show up, but then it went back to nothing instead of becoming clearly positive like it usually would. My temp was really high yesterday, so I thought perhaps I ovulated and just had a really quick brief LH surge and missed it with the testing. But then today the temp was way down again. So who knows what is going on...
There isn't any hope of TTC right now anyway with all of the illnesses, life and work stress going on. But I am still curious. Would you get a completely positive LH test during an anovulatory cycle? How about the ferning? That is showing estrogen, right? So maybe I'd have the estrogen surge but not LH in an anovulatory cycle?
I guess I'll just keep pos to see what happens. Maybe it will just be a delayed ovulation and I'll still get a chance to try conceiving this cycle. I'm just wondering if anyone knows the science of how all this works.
I've charted through missed cycles before, but only with temps and CF. I've only recently added the extra tests to predict ovulation. So I'm curious to know how it all fits together.
