    Does anyone know if exercise can stop ovulation?

    I am using opks and started to test a few days before LH surge was due, but so far i have not had a single line showing LH on my opk.

    Surge should have been due around the weekend of 13th feb - but on 13th I did a longer run than im used to (practically doubled my distance) and i didnt feel right for a few days after (stoopidly did it on an empty stomach).

    I started to run back in Sept, so im used to it - but i know i pushed myself to far that day.

    Im really concerned that not only have i not seen a LH surge, but i havent seen any LH since that weekend. Ive tested twice a day most days and not even a faint line.

    Could my run at that time of the month have stopped it?

    Should i be worried that i have no LH showing? Its always been pretty textbook in previous months.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi hun, I'm not sure about running but I know that extreme weight training can stop cycles in women, this is due to the extra testosterone produced. Sorry I can't be more help. Maybe you ovulated really early and missed it or maybe didn't ovulate this month, I think it's normal to miss the odd month here and there. x

    I've heard extreme exercising can affect your cycles but I guess it depends how much you pushed yourself. Only you know your limits and your body so if you think you really did over do it then I guess it's possible. Hopefully it's just a little late and it will show up soon x
