What should LH be for IUI?

If the OPK testing seems inaccurate, we do a blood test for LH (should be high >30) in the next IUI cycle.

When should I do IUI after positive OPK?

Because fertility treatments are not often covered by insurance, ovulation tests or OPKs are a low-cost option to help you and your physician determine the optimal timing for an IUI procedure (12-36 hours after positive result).

Is LH surge best time to conceive?

For people trying to conceive, the best time to have unprotected sex is during the LH surge. Ovulation predictor kits (OPKs) contain at-home tests that measure LH levels in the urine. It is best to start testing levels when the fertile window is drawing near, or a handful of days before ovulation.

What time of day does LH surge?

The LH surge triggers the egg to fully mature and to be released from the follicle. A study of 155 cycles from 35 women demonstrated that the onset of the LH surge primarily occurs between midnight and early morning (37% between 00:00 and 04:00, 48% between 04:00 and 08:00).

When is best time for IUI?

When is the best timing to an IUI? Ideally an IUI should be performed within 6 hours on either side of ovulation. When timing is based on an hCG injection, the IUI’s are usually done between 24 and 48 hours later. If two IUI’s are scheduled, they are usually spaced at least 24 hours apart.

Can you ovulate the same day as your LH surge?

The LH surge indicates ovulation will occur at some point within the next twelve to forty-eight hours (on average). The window is large because it is different for everyone. Some people ovulate the same day as the LH surge and some ovulate two days after the surge.

What is the best day for IUI?

IUI is usually done between day 12 and day 16 of a natural menstrual cycle, but the exact day will depend on your individual cycle . If your fertility specialist has offered IUI during a stimulated cycle, you’ll probably be given fertility drugs in the form of tablets or injections.

Can you have high LH levels and not ovulate?

Some women may have a surge in the LH hormone without releasing an egg. This condition is known as Luteinized Unruptured Follicle Syndrome (LUFS). Other women may experience false small peaks in the LH hormone before it fully peaks, commonly seen in women with the polycystic ovarian syndrome.

When to schedule an IUI after ovulation?

IUI procedures that are based on the body’s natural LH surge should be scheduled between 24 to 36 hours following ovulation. (Note that once an egg is released, it remains viable for only 24 hours).

When do IUI procedures need to be spaced?

When two IUI procedures are scheduled, they should be spaced at least 12 hours apart, and between 24-48 hours after hCG injection.

When do you ovulate after an HCG injection?
