How Many Days After Ovulation Does Period Start
I ovulated on Saturday night, and my period started yesterday (thursday) so I got my period 5 days post ovulation. Why would this happen?
Short luteal phase: The luteal phase is the time from ovulation to the onset of your menses and average is 12-16 days. Your recent cycle was short. The ovary produced low progesterone during that cycle. There are many causes for this and if you monitor your cycle and find that there is a consistent pattern, I recommend that you consult your gynecologist. ...Read more

After missed period:
Conception, as defined by the generation of a fertilized ovum, occurs within day or so of the sex. However, it takes about two weeks for the embryo to make enough HCG to produce a positive pregnancy test. Blood test may be done a day after a missed period. Home pregnancy tests should be done 4-5 days after the missed period. If the result is negative repeat the test in 4-5 days. Use first morning urine and follow instructions for the test carefully. If you do not wish to be pregnant, use contraception all the time, every time. You may consider implanted contraceptive, or IUD.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
12-14 days: After ovulation the follicle (egg sac of the ovary) is called a corpus luteum. It produces Progesterone to change the uterine lining to support implantation. If you are not pregnant the corpus luteum will die off in 12-14 days. If you are pregnant the HCG produced by the placenta keeps the Progesterone going to support the pregnancy. ...Read more

Light menses: At age 41, a woman can expect some irregularity in her cycles. Ovulation does not "always" then occur at what used to be "mid cycle", and may be delayed. The ovary takes a bit more stimulation to ovulate which means the drop in estrogen prior to ovulation may produce some "light" withdrawal bleeding. You might ask your gyn provider about low dose oral contraceptives at this point. ...Read more

Hi! In worried its 18 days after ovulation and I haven't had my period yet. My cycle length is fairly irregular from 28-36 days usually. I tookan early?
Pregnancy worries?: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more
No: A woman cannot GET pregnant 3 days after ovulation, meaning her egg cannot get fertilized 3 days after ovulation. Her egg only lasts about one day, so it would have to be fertilized no later than 1 day after ovulation. The question she needs to answer for herself is, "When did I ovulate? " In real life, she does not know the answer. It is an estimated date, but tracking body temperatures can help. ...Read more

Possible...: That amount of time is a little bit longer than most luteal phases (the time b/w ovulaton & period starting - which is 14 days for most patients).
