How many days after ovulation can you start your period on a 28 day cycle? And can methylpredisnone affect a menstrual cycle?

Usually 14 days: There is almost always a 12-14 day interval between ovulation and menstruation.

Late period?: If the period is late, run a home urine pregnancy test. If it's negative, run a second one in 7 days. If both are negative, you're not pregnant. It's common to have a few days variation in when the period comes. So it might still come in the next few days. ...Read more

I have some cramping 4 days after ovulation and 9 days before my period is due, I dont normally get this normally cramps start 2 days before my period?

Probably normal!: Cramping can occur with ovulation and menses, a few days before or after is probably normal. You don't mention your contraceptive method. If none, or not consistently used, could be preganant, but if no other symptoms of pregnancy--still probably normal. Variation of menstrual period may occur with stresses, etc. ...Read more
