Ovulation can still be possible while LH is normal.   When LH levels rise to about 1/3 of the level of a woman’s postmenopausal FSH level, menopause is considered complete. (See below)

To receive personal LH levels you must be tested by your doctor but LH Ovulation Strips and Cassettes are your best bet for tracking day to day rises in LH.
