21 Day Cycle And Ovulation
If you have a 21 day cycle and ovulate on the 7th day of your cycle, how many days is the luteal phase?

I have regular 21 day cycles, Ovulate day 12, w/normal 3-day long period. No sex since B4 last period but late by 3 days...could I still be pregnant?
Gyno visit saw no polyps but stil vaginal bleeding on days 19 to 21 of 25 day cycle. Ovulation bleeding maybe and no further follow up required?
Post ovulation bleed: Right before ovulation there is a drop in estrogen levels as the ovulation triggering rise in LH. This drop in estrogen can be enough to cause spotting and occasionally a period. If a saline sonogram to evaluate the uterine cavity is normal, it is not likely a problem. ...Read more

I have been on Clomid for three cycles my cycles are getting shorter and shorter with today being day one of this cycle that has left me with a 21 day cycle when they are normally 28 to 29 days is this normal if so when should I be ovulating?
Discuss with Doc: Part of being prescribed Clomid (clomiphene) is the education that comes with it. Besides being taught the risk factors & side effects, you should have also been shown how to assess for ovulation, timing of intercourse, & when to take your pills. This is combined with ultrasound evaluation of the endometrium, follicles, & you shouldn't leave the office without a better game plan. See an rei if failed 3 cycles. ...Read more
2 rounds of chlomid going on 3rd round 50mg days 5-9 & still no pregnancy what else could be an issue? 21 cycle day progesterone show I ovulated
Sounds like PCOS or possibly other causes... would be happy to do a consult with you.... ask for Dr Douglas
part of it depends on what your typical cycle length is (from day 1 of one cycle to day 1 of the other). If you substract 14 from your average cycle length, that will help predict when you will ovulate.
So if you typically have a 28 day cycle and the first day of your menstrual cycle was 6/21, you could expect to ovulate 14 days later (7/5) +/- 1 day. ...Read more
The following day: If you were checking yourself every day and you first detected the surge on CD21 then the following day (CD22) is when the egg is released (or ovulated). ...Read more
Is it possible to ovulate too late in a cycle? I received a blazing positive ovulation test on day 21 of my cycle and on average I have 33 day cycles.
Trust the pain: I would err on trusting the pain. But, if you are trying to get pregnant the issue is not the specific day, but getting sperm into the vagina on the five days before ovulation. So, whether ovulation occurs on the 21st or 22nd, you should be getting exposed to sperm on the 16th through the 22nd. ...Read more
I had a progesterone test done on day 21 and the result came back 15.30 what is that mean i’m ovulating or not?
My ovulation day is today. Had sex last night n 2 nights before that. Do I need to do it again tonight are tomorrow?
Yes: I would probably skip tonight and cover tomorrow night just in case by having intercourse. ...Read more
Ovulation on day 21. Is it late? And does it means the egg quality is low? My cycle length usually about 34-36 days.
Somewhat: Ovulating around day 21 can be somewhat abnormal for individuals. People do conceive this late though. Medications such as Clomid (clomiphene) or Femara can move the ovulation time more towards the beginning of the cycle. Hormonal evaluation should be considered to make sure there isn't anything that can be corrected such as low thyroid. ...Read more
Had a progesterone test done on day 21 came back today with a level of 36.2 and consistent ovulation what does this exactly mean?
Progesterone: That is a very good level. It does mean your pregnant, but you could be. Keep trying, if your not. The high level means you have a very healthy ovarian function. ...Read more

Even though my gf cheated on me on 10/21 she has a 29 day cycle so she ovulated on 10/26 & we didit 23, 24 & 25. More then likely I'm the dad?
Using ovulation test strips to pinpoint my LH surge. Positive on 9/21 but my calendar says I ovulated on 9/19 I tested that day an got negative, help?
Mix n' match: Don't be surprised: you are mixing testing methods, none of which is (are) exact. If you checked cervical mucus you might get another answer, still. Generally the OPK is the most accurate test you can do at home; more reliable than the calendar method, and ultrasound is more reliable than opk. ...Read more
