I ovulated late this cycle (cd25-26). I'm 11 dpo and got + pregnancy test. Does late ovulation increase miscarriage or probs with baby's health?

I ovulated late this cycle (cd25-26).  I'm 11 dpo and got + pregnancy test.  Does late ovulation increase miscarriage or probs with baby's health?

Delayed ovulation: No, conceiving in a late ovulatory cycle does not increase your chance of miscarriage. It just confuses people on your actual date of conception and the due date. An early sonogram( first trimester) confirms helps determine the actual gestational age of the baby and usually results in an adjusted due date based on the sono findings and not your last menstrual period date. Congratulations! ...Read more

I am 5 weeks pregnant. We conceived on day 67 of my cycle with no medication. Am I at an INCREASED risk of miscarriage because of my late ovulation?

I am 5 weeks pregnant. We conceived on day 67 of my cycle with no medication. Am I at an INCREASED risk of miscarriage because of my late ovulation?

Controversial: The role in the quality of the ovulation is not well-understood and is debated among gynecologists. I would say you have a 25% chance of miscarriage, which is equal to the baseline risk. Early ultrasound or serial hCG blood tests could be reassuring for you. ...Read more

Yes, you may not: If you are not ovulating, it may be a long time before you bleed. If you are not wanting to get pregnant now, BCPs would be the easiest way to control your cycles. If you are wanting pregnancy, you may need to be tested for PCOS or some other hormone imbalance. ...Read more

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.

Due date: due dates based on ultrasound are best during the first trimester. In later trimesters they are not as good. This is due to the limitations in the accuracy of the measurements . In the 1st trimester, in fact before 10 weeks the dates are +/- less than 7 days in subsequent trimesters they are 14-21 days. That is why your doctor is probably not changing your dates. ...Read more
