need some help or advice, I've never used ovulation sticks before this month.
i have had 2 positives yesterday and today (cd22 and cd23)
how long does the lh surge last and show on a test, I thought I ovulated yesterday because of the positive but getting a positive today has thrown me?!
im just using Tesco test strips.

Hi there, my understanding is that it is perfectly normal to have 2 days showing ovulation days on sticks. This is because the LH surge will stay in your system for 12 - 24 hours. However, the first day is the most important as it means you are likely to ovulate in the next few hours or so. The second day is likely to still be high as your homones are still high so it will read on a stick but its likely you have already ovulated by the second day and your levels will begin to come down. Having said that, I am using the clear blue monitor and it states you should BD on both peak days at least once so I guess thats just in case ovulation hasn't actually occured on the second day. Hope this helps in some way! xx
