2 day LH surge now 3 days?

I used to have a 2 day LH surge every month for the past, well, more than a year that we've been ttc. Now all the sudden it's been a 3 day surge both last month and this month. Is there anyone who has experience with this? What changes the length of the surge? Is there a reason to be concerned? My o day has varied the past few months as well and it always used to be on the same day each cycle. I'm confused!

Yes, I've just had to stay "busy" longer. But that's okay.
I'm pretty sure I felt an O twinge today, so now we wait....maybe one more BD for good measure! That will be it for a while...we leave for my mom's house tomorrow to see my brother's family and since DD will be in the bed with us, absolutely nothing will be taking place there! What's done is done! :)

Suz, I had the same thing last month! Three days in a row. I use the cheapies, but decided to get the digitals this month to confirm in the hopes of ruling on confusion. There goes that theory :)

I guess you just have to keep BD'ing!

Mine was most often 2 days, but sometimes 1 and sometimes 3. I noticed when using the digitals when I got 3 days of smiley faces I only got 2 days that looked positive on my walgreens brand in the same month (I was using the walgreens and digis in the same month...). The digi seemed to say positive when the walgreens was ALLMOOOOOOOOOST but not quite there. In any case, I don't think it matters how long the surge is, just that you ovulated.

Yes. I use the digital so there is no confusing the positives. 3 days of smiley faces! I used to only have 2. I know because I test till they're negative. Just wondering why it's changed all the sudden. ??

Are you using OPK's and you got 3 positives? My OPK's have been a little vague the last two months, they fade in but don't look true positive and then I get a temp rise the next day.
