Doctor Says I Didn't Ovulate, But My OPK Was Positive For 2 Days

Hello Dr. Amos,

I recently had a hysterscopy and D&C to remove scar tissue found in endometrium (from prior D&C). I was put on premarin, 1.25mg for 30 days. I'm now on day 11 of  premarin, but on cd 18 of cycle.  I tested + for 4 diff OPK's on cd 13 & 14, which should have made ovulation day cd 15?

I went  today to see my reproductive endocrinologist, and she did a TVS to check my endometrium (measured approximately 12mm (1.2 cm). She also lowered premarin to .625 for the next 14 days, with 325mg of aspirin daily, and water pill 1x week for water retention (due to premarin side effect). She said I did NOT ovulate or produce any eggs this cycle, and also said my endometrium is dense and thick. How could this be possible?

My question is why didn't I produce any eggs or ovulate when I got a + on all OPK's?

I have had 3 days of very high temps, indicating ovulation.. also cervical mucus is gone (sticky and dry). I usually produce eggs in my cycle naturally, so how has this happened, and when should I get my period?

The OPK measures the FSH hormone, but it can be falsely positive when you take premarin. Falsely positive means it's positive but you did not ovulate. Only an elevated progesterone test (and getting pregnant) tells you for sure if ovulkation happened.

Hello Dr. Amos:

i went today for my 7dpo BW (estradiol, FSH, LH and Progestrone) what numbers should i  be looking for IF indeed i did Ovulated this cycle. Im on premarin .625 as of 5 days ago, before that i was on 1.25mg.  is this considered a medicated cycle. im not on other meds, like clomid etc..just premarin, for another 6 days. 

could i get pregnant while taking Premarin?

what #'s should i look for in my bloodwork, if i did Ovulated? ?

what # indicates no Ovulation?

hi Dr AMos,

I went friday for my cd21 BW  or say 7dpo, i had blood drawn for:

Progestrone=14.3 (no meds, only premarin)

FSH=3.8

LH=1.3

endomertial lining on 3dpo was 1.18cm (thick and dense)  but good otherwise.

I have been on premarin since cd8 til cd25. had hysterscopy  to remove scar tissue.

no prog supplements at all. also asprin 325mg daily w/ premarin.

DID I OVULATE with theses numbers?

Can Premarin raise P4 levels?

Most doctors believe that progesterone levels above 10 usually indicate ovulation. Any time you take estrogen there is a chance your blood progesterone level increases.
