4. What if my OPK is positive for several days in a row? It is possible, in a normal ovulation, to have a positive OPK for several days in a row. This is because LH peaks (surges) about 12-36 hours before ovulation occurs, and then dissipates. So, you could theoretically detect this high level of LH with positive OPK's from the time it begins to the time it dissipates-- over 36 hours.
It is also possible that your body is "gearing up" to ovulate, and you have an LH surge-- and then, for some reason (such as stress, illness, travel, or random fluke), your body fails to release an egg . . . then tries, tries again ASAP with another, or overlapping, surge. If you see a positive OPK for longer than 3 consecutive days, your egg is probably just having a little trouble getting out of the starting gate. If this happens to you occasionally, it's no big deal. If it happens a lot, talk to your doctor. (I just play one on the Internet )
6. What if my OPK is positive almost all the time? The most common cause of constant positive or almost-positive OPK's is Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS.) This disorder is usually characterized by elevated LH (hence the positive OPK's), and is common in women with very long and/or anovulatory cycles.
Don't self-diagnose, though! If you're worried (or just plain obsessed with your pee-sticks call your doct-- okay, okay, you know the drill
SSB - Sorry things are confusing. That does seem strange that the RE would keep you on the same dose, but I really don't know much. I'm hoping that things will get moving soon.
AFM - Quick question for those of you doing fertility yoga, specifically Restoring Fertility. Do you do the ovulatory phase practice on the day of IUI or do you skip that day? I dont' want to screw anything up and I'm not sure.
