Does LH surge stay high if pregnant?
No, LH surge does not remain elevated once pregnant. In fact, LH levels are really low during pregnancy (< 1.5 IU/L), and thus not active on end organs and tissues.
What will LH levels be if pregnant?
pregnant women: less than 1.5 IU/L. women past menopause: 15.9 to 54.0 IU/L. women using contraceptives: 0.7 to 5.6 IU/L. men between the ages of 20 and 70: 0.7 to 7.9 IU/L.

Can u get pregnant after ovulation?

How long after positive ovulation test can you get pregnant?
The short answer: not long. Eggs are only viable for about 24 hours after they’re released. That, combined with the 36 hours between a positive ovulation test and ovulation, means you may only have about 60 hours (or 2 ½ days) during your cycle when conception is even possible.
Can you ovulate while pregnant?
