Ovulating earlier from one side.

Postby Mari Mo04 » Thu Mar 23, 2017 9:08 am

Anybody else ovulate way earlier from one side than the other? I ovulated between CD 10 and 12 one month and the next it's between CD 14 and 16. Anybody else in this situation or know why this would happen?

Huh... That's a really interesting question! I know the timing of O is dictated by the rise in estrogen that corresponds to the development of the maturing follicle, which triggers the pituitary glad to release LH. What I don't know is if both ovaries are producing estrogen at the same rate leading up to O, or if the one with the dominant follicle produces more (or even all?) of it for that cycle.

That would certainly help explain why someone would have what would be considered irregular cycles, though, if it depended on which side the egg was coming from.

I remember one user on here saying she had one weak ovary that didn't produce a strong ovulation, so when she O'd from that side, she pretty much knew that cycle was a bust. I don't know how she knew that though.

Sorry, that probably wasn't a helpful answer, I'm just intrigued by the question!

Thanks for the reply. It just started happening after my last miscarriage and I would wonder if it's a hormone issue, but had my Day 3 blood tests taken the cycle after I miscarried and it showed everything was fine. Maybe it's just me and my eggs aging. I am 35 this year...

This is a very good question and interesting,i was the same one ovary was ovulating earlier in my cycle and one later,why I don't know :)) also I was ovulating two cycles from my right side and one from my left side,the left side was the one who was lazier so to speak.
I don't think is your eggs,Im fairly young with a good ovarian reserve and i had the same experience.
Im sorry for your loss,I wish you good luck!!

It's nice to know I'm not alone even if I don't find any answers! Thank you for your condolences. I lost 5 in 18 months and after all the tests fall in the "unexplained" category and was told to call when I get my next positive test. It's frustrating, but we keep trying. Just want one more so badly! I haven't been able to conceive since my last loss over Labor day last year and am starting to lose a bit of hope though.

5 losses,ohhh Im so sorry.Have you had any testing done to find out what could've happened?Progesterone,blood clotting,natural killier cells?!
You could start using coq10 to help out the eggs quality.
Don't lose hope,it will happen.
Were your losses early?Have you had a scan to be sure there isn't anything left behind that could interfere with implantation?!

Yes. I've had all the testing and the medical bills to prove it. Lol! My doctor did CD 3 testing, progesterone came back at 21, thyroid was under 1, no autoimmune or clotting issues. No signs of PCOS She told me I was in perfect health and there wasn't anything they could do. I do have super heavy periods though, so started taking baby aspirin to see if it will increase circulation and maybe aid implantation. We are currently without insurance, so until we have it again I just have to wait, hope and pray. My husband won't even consider infertility treatments. His take on it is if it's supposed to happen it will.

Is so frustrating when you don't have an answer...I know.
Baby aspirin can help so that is good.
Im sorry to hear your husband is not willing to try fertility treatments,my husband was the same when I was talking about Ivf,you had all the testing done at this point you can try Q10,ovaboost,dhea,vitamins to help improve your egg quality if there is a problem there,sadly we can get tested for almost every but I don't know of any test that is done to find out how good are our eggs.
I hope you get your rainbow baby very soon.

Thank you! I'm wearing him down about clomid...I hope! My youngest turns 3 next month, so I'm hoping it happens soon so the gap isn't super huge.

I could have written this post word for word. It all started after my mc in November. One month I have a 24 day cycle, the next 30, and then back to 24. So strange. I have an appointment with my doctor next week to see what on earth is going on. I know I have a cyst in my right ovary (I think that's my longer cycle ovary). It's so frustrating when Ttc. Keep us posted on what's going on. I'm interested if we have similar things going on. Do you temp? I ask because I question if I'm even ovulating. I tried temping but failed miserably due to horrible sleep.

I don't temp. I have a toddler that I'm up with two or three times every night and so wasn't getting accurate charts. My doctor confirmed I was ovulating after my last loss with a progesterone test on Cycle Day 23 though. I would be interested in hearing what your Dr says about this though if you are willing to share!

Thanks! I've already made some notes on my alternating cycles... so weird. It's 23 day cycle the 29 day then back to 23 day, etc. I'm really hoping to get some answers.
