I observed ovulation last month and the kit showed ovulation on day 24 why is it late and is it normal while my period usually comes every 28 days?

Ovulation prediction: The kits you are using measure a hormone called lh (leutinizing hormone). It could be that you ovulated late this cycle, which can happen. It could also be that you lh was just high enough on that day to show a positive test. Not every women ovulates the same time every month of their reproductive life.
