Ovulation: A longer menstrual cycle could mean a longer follicular phase (the time before ovulation) this is variable although usually about 14 days. The luteal phase is the days after ovulation which is constant 12-14 days. It could also indicate that you are not ovulating.

Does really late ovulation mean really late period?

Does really late ovulation mean really late period?

Usually: One should expect a period about 2 weeks after ovulation so when you ovulate late, the next period is likely going to be late. This is not a hard and fast rule since the luteal phase (the last half of the cycle) can vary in length.

14 days before: An easy way to remember ovulation is that it occurs 14 days before your next cycle. If you know how many days between periods then you can calculate an approximate ovulation date. If your cycles are irregular than predicting ovulation is almost impossible.

6days late period, cramps frequent urination and late ovulation? Had hpt test today and its neg? Could I still be preg.

Depends: It really depends. If you ovulated late, then your period will come late as well and you don't know yet if pregnant. Count to 14 days from ovulation and do a pregnancy test then if you don't get a period.

Does late ovulation mean late periods?

Does late ovulation mean late periods?

It should. ..: The 2nd half of the cycle (luteal phase) starts with ovulation and ends with a period, or goes on into pregnancy. Most luteal phases should be 13-14 days. The most accurate ways of telling the length are to use an ovulation predictor kit, or ultrasound monitoring if seeing a fertility md (rei). If you have a short luteal phase or long cycles (35-40 days or more) get checked by rei to find out why.

Can late ovulation cause later period?

Yes: The least variation in a cycle is the time from ovulation to the next period. The corpus luteum which is the remainder of the follicle after ovulation will only make Progesterone for 2 weeks unless there is pregnancy hormone, hcg, to "rescue" it. If you ovulate on day 14 you will have a 28 day cycle. If you ovulate day 20 you will have a 34 day cycle.

Growth: Some follicles just take longer to grow and mature than others. It sounds completely normal if you have periods 14 days after ovulation. Just as some children take longer to grow up so do some eggs. Hope this helps.

My last period was 18 days long, mostly just spotting. Now I'm 11 days late going by the start date. Would the long period have caused late ovulation?

See a doctor: If this is the first time that this has happened to you then I recommend seeing a doctor so that they can make a proper diagnosis and give you something to get rid of the condition or relieve symptoms.

Does late period mean later ovulation or longer cycle?

Both: Ovulation occurs 14 days before the onset of the next menstrual cycle. A 28 day period for example produces a day 14 ovulation. A 32 day cycle= day 18 ovulation. Cycle length normally varies between 26 and 35 days. A late period can also mean early pregnancy as well.

What might lead to a late period when you ovulate at a normal time?

I have a regular monthly period, there's a possibilities that I have late ovulation?

I have a regular monthly period, there's a possibilities that I have late ovulation?

Can't tell: As long as you ovulate consistently your period can be regular, it doesn't tell you anything about whether your ovulation is late. A home lh kit/opk can help you figure that out without getting a doctor involved yet.
