What Is The Best Treatment For Late Ovulation
Is it a problem?: Why do u feel it needs treatment. That should not affect your ability to get pregnant. If periods are off try the pill but I guess you could artificially lengthen the luteal phase by using a Progesterone for the lat 14 days after ovulation, though it would be Progesterone not coming from the corpus luteum.

I ovulate day 21- 22 of a 31-32 day cycle, have been ttc for 7 months age 36. Is there any treatment for late ovulation?
Delayed ovulation: If you didn't ovulate on time or didn't ovulate at all, it doesn't mean you can't get pregnant. Still, it makes it harder to plan when to conceive. You can track and confirm ovulation with an ovulation predictor kit or talk to your doctor about medications that can help you to ovulate more consistently. ...Read more
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. ...Read more
Timing: The best time to try is around the time of ovulation, or best shortly before. For most this is around mid-cycle, women with irregular cycles are harder to pinpoint. Counting cycle days, following temperatures, home OPK are often helpful. Do you think you have a clear idea around when you ovulate? Is that based on opk, counting days, or another method? ...Read more
Late sex: Many women have longer cycles which means they ovulate later. This does not interfere with fertility. It simply means that the most fertile time is later. If the interval from ovulation to the start of your period is short however that can mean a luteal phase defect which can cause fertility problems. This is very treatable. See your doctor to look into this. ...Read more
Lmp 4/27;EDD 2/17. By LMP the dd would be 2/1/15.after 4 u/s the edd is between 2/8-2/17. Is this b/c of late ovulation since its still not 2/1?
Could be few reasons: It's definitely not an exact science when we're predicting EDD. It could be an ovulation that did not happen until after the standard day 14 often used for estimation. With ultrasound it's more to do with the size of the fetus-it may be measuring smaller than one would expect for an EDD of 2/1 according to how you measured at 23 weeks. They are only a week off which is not unusual. ...Read more

Used to have 37 day cycles with late ovulation. Last 2 cycles were 33 cycles. Been taking zinc tablets past 2months, is there a connection?
Shorter cycles?: Zinc is not known to influence the menstrual cycle. It is common after some time with longer cycles for a higher level of hormone to be released from the brain, and more regular cycles at a shorter time of onset can be established. Ovulation requires in some women a higher level of hormone to mature an egg prior to release. ...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. 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. ...Read more
I believe: You are right, and it's most likely late ovulation. Cannot tell you "why" without more information. It's possible the bleeding could be for other reasons, but sounds like delayed ovulation. ...Read more
Lmp 4/27. Edd 2/17 by u/s. If dr says he won't change my edd is that sign of late ovulation since by the preg wheel it should be around 2/1?
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
