If you are charting your basal body temps, you would probably know when you are ovulating (although you wouldn't know when until you've ovulated). Another way to tell is by getting an ultrasound done. I would suggest you to try another brand and see what happens. I also had one particular brand that didn't detect the surge, while few others did (I tested all three side by side). So you could be ovulating, but opk is not detecting it. Good Luck!

Can you miss an lh surge?

Do you mean detection of the surge or the surge itself? Either is possible.If you have regular cycles, most likely you are surging regularly. One surges about 12-36 hrs before ovulation, and a surge always preceeds ovulation. It is possible to have a truncated surge without ovulating, such as when breatsfeeding or when under stress, but, for the most part, without regular surging, and thus regular ovulation, one does not get a regular period.As far as missing the detection, it is quite easy to miss. Often the surge is sharp and short. Thus if one is testing only one time per day near ovulation time, a surge may slip through the 24-hr crack. Once you know your body, it become easy to see when one is near a surge. At that point, if she tests 2x per day, it is much easier to catch.As far as no surge itself, it would signal an anaovulatory month.

Ovulation predictor kits, which measure the LH surge, are sensitive to the surge about 24 to 48 hours before ovulation.
