9 days of peak/high/peak in ovulation kit?

Hi. I have the purple ovulation kit as recommended by our fertility specialist. My cycle is generally 28-30 days and I started testing on day 11 which registered as a low fertility day. I skipped high and went straight to peak on days 12&13 and then stayed high days 14-19 and today on day 20 (my last stick in the package) I'm back at peak. I'm not taking any fertility medications. Can you shed some light on whether this is "normal?"

Thanks for your message, Kelly.  We're glad you're using our Advanced digital ovulation tests and would be happy to share some insight.  

This test tracks the changes in two hormones, estrogen and LH.  High fertility indicates the necessary changes in estrogen have been detected, and peak fertility is displayed when the LH surge has been detected.  It's important to know that the number of high fertility days is personal to you and reflects your unique hormone changes.  The number of high fertility days may be more or less than two, and it is possible for the holder to change from low fertility to peak fertility without displaying high fertility.  This can happen if your estrogen level isn't high enough to be detected by the test, if the hormone changes occur close together, if tests are missed, or if testing begins too late in your cycle.  The leaflet includes a chart that explains which day to begin testing based on your cycle length.  Women with a 28 day cycle should begin testing on day 8.  

It's not necessary to continue testing once peak fertility has been identified.  A woman will typically have 1 LH surge.  The only conditions that we're aware of that can cause multiple surges are PCOS and menopausal symptoms.  Please give us a call at 1-800-321-3279 and mention reference #FB402 so we can talk through your questions.  We're here to help weekdays from 8:30-5:00 Eastern time.
