It may just be that you had a delay in ovulation, and that you period may come a little later than usual. If you haven't started in a week and you test is negative, you may want to check with your MD. ...Read more

How many days past ovulation can I test? Ideally after a missed or late period but can I test sooner? I'm 5dpo is too early but can I do it around 8

Too early: 5 days after ovulation is too early for a pregnancy test, they'll always be negative. Wait until 11-12 days after ovulation, then it should be reliable. I see "8 days" online, but don't believe it unless you enjoy wishful thinking - it's too early. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

A while: When you take a morning after pill, it can alter the subsequent period. You can have early bleeding or late bleeding, or prolonged spotting. These symptoms should resolve after your next menstrual cycle, but that can take a while to come (a month or two!). To be 100% safe, you may want to repeat a pregnancy test in a week or so. Home pt's are very accurate if it has been 2 weeks since conception. ...Read more

Can you still get pregnant you ovulated late. Period was 10/3 my expected ovulation day was 10/20 but it started on 10/23. Is that a problem?

Late ovulation: Not necessarily, though sometimes it can be. In principle as long as you ovulate there's a chance fo conception. The biggest problem with late ovulations is troubles timing, sometimes ovulations that are very late also aren't as good in terms of egg maturity. ...Read more

Does having a late period result in late ovulation? My period came late but im not sure if that means I will ovulate late this time too.

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. ...Read more

Could you ovulate twice in 6 weeks without flow? Small amounts of sticky, clumpy yellow CM after stretchier white CM. Late period, negative HPTs.

Could you ovulate twice in 6 weeks without flow? Small amounts of sticky, clumpy yellow CM after stretchier white CM. Late period, negative HPTs.

Less likely: If one ovulates then there are only two possible outcomes -- pregnancy or a menstrual cycle. Relying on cervical mucous to predict ovulation is not very reliable. I wold schedule a visit to have your discharge evaluated and determine if an infection is present. You can also discuss your irregular menstrual cycle. ...Read more

Have never had egg white CM in my life, not even around Ovulation. Why do I now? Also some preg symptoms, and late period, negative test. Help??

Possible yeast: Does "egg white cm" refer to a vaginal discharge? If so, having a white discharge at time of your menstrual period, you may be having a yeast (monilia, candida) vaginal infection. Do get evaluated, since treatment may be simple. Treatment may be more difficult if you have diabetes or have recently been taking antibiotics. Hope that helps. ...Read more

Occasionally: Usually if you ovulate and don't conceive then menstruation probably occurs within 14 - 16 days after ovulation. If a cyst forms after ovulation called a corpus lutein cyst and stays around for a longer period of time than usual then menstruation can be delayed for a few days up to a week or so. The other possibility is that ovulation truly didn't occur. ...Read more

I've had pcos. And I get late period even after ovulation. 25 26 days after I have ovulated. What might be the reason? Shudnt it come within 2 weeks?

PCOS is the answer: PCOS in of itself causes hormonal ovulatory suppression and changes to your menstrual cycle. Normally, period flow starts about 2 weeks after ovulation if not pregnant. Consult a GYN MD if this pattern continues as certain Rx's can adjust the problem. ...Read more

12 days late period, Cd 43 negative hpt, After clomid 5 days & pregnyl on Cd 14. If pregnyl injection is given, it means that ovulation has definitely happened? If ovulation has happened than, Why my period delays? As it suppose to come after 14 days?

Clomid/periods: Clomid for ovulation induction is not always successful. Ovulation detection depends on a temperature elevation, and that can occur with pregnyl, without meaning that an egg has actually been released. If this continues, increased doses of clomid or even stronger ovulation induction may be required. Ask your provider about serial ultrasound exams to see if the follicle is developed. ...Read more

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. ...Read more
