Normal: You ovulate 14 days prior to start of your period . So if you have a 34 day cycle you would have ovulated exactly on day 20. This is not delayed ovulation, it is perfect ! the egg should be fine! you sound just fine and are just a woman with a longer interval cycle. That is just as normal as women with 21 day cycles! don't worry!

Yes, normal: Yes ovulation is about 14 days before menses, so long cycles have later ovulation. No particular reason to believe poor egg quality. You are young. Track ovulation to make sure you time intercourse for pregnancy and you should succeed. Best wishes.

Can't say: Remember your doctor cannot see eggs with ultrasound; what we count and measure are follicles - these are small cysts where the eggs 'live.' based on size of the follicles, we think we can predict when eggs are 'ready' for ovulation. Ask your doctor what you had and to explain what he/she thigks it means to you.
