Ghost or anyone- Ovulation Kit

Postby Sunshine1576 » Mon Nov 28, 2011 4:38 pm

Ghost or anyone,
I'm using the First Response Ovulation Predictor Kit, testing around the same hour every morning..I started testing on day 9 and after 3 days of nothing almost gave up...But around cycle day 14, and over the last two days I've noticed the surge. I thought ovulation only gave us a 24 hour window, but could it be 24-48 hours? What are your thoughts, could this kit be defective?

Probably real. There can be multiple pulses of LH release. But the first one is the one that counts.
Note: I am not an MD and not an expert.

Thanks Ghost. Even though this cycle is a natural one, I thought it was worth trying anyway. I'm more interested in the timing in when the eggs are released, sometimes I feel the twinging but what if you had more then one mature egg, do they get released one after another once the LH surge takes effect?
