Your gyn said that? Hmm. Most people I talk to that go to a FS are told ovulating late is fine as long as you don't have a short LP. Now I'm confused

I don't go to a gyn, but instead to a fertility specialist. So, yeah, I am sure he would have told me and I also suspect I would have read it somewhere, too.

If they knew what affects the egg quality, they would have a fix for an insane number of situations that need fixing. But they don't.

Most certainly your egg doesn't rot because it's waiting to mature.

At least the good thing about vitex and other adaptogenic herbs is that they normalize your cycle rather than force it. They can only help along what your cycle would want to do naturally. This is because they do not actually contain hormone. In the case of vitex it stimulates and strengthens the pituitary gland so that it's output of hormones is more regular and normalized.

Who knows, but if it does effect the quality of the egg I'm screwed! LOL. I'm too afraid to take vitex though.

You have NEVER read that? Have you only been trying for 4 months? When you have tried almost a year, you have read and heard it all. Especially when you are someone who lives, breathes, and sleeps fertility.

This is taken from the link below.

Dr. Amos: Most doctors consider ovulation 'late' when it happens after CD 21. Many women do get pregnant with late ovulations, but chances of getting pregnant are decreased. For one, the egg is not as good when you ovulate later in the cycle. A 'not good' egg is less likely to be fertilized and become an embryo. In addition, the lining of the uterus, the endometrium, is where the fertilized egg, the blastocyst, has to attach and implant. If the endometrium is too old, it is less likely to provide sufficient nutrition for the blastocyst, so implantation is decreased. And finally, with 'late ovulation,' you ovulate less often than with earlier ovulation.

I'm with Jaza on this one, and think there's nothing wrong with a late O. Just because an egg is released later in a cycle, it does not mean it is a 'not good' egg...an egg is just released when it is mature, so it's not sat there rotting or anything...

I O on average cd22...my longest O date so far has been cd28....and that was while taking Angus Castus (aka Vitex)

I hope you are right, but I still wish I o'd around cd 14, not 20.

It's really hard when you're like us O-ing later in the cycle...each failed cycle, you just have so much longer to wait to move on to the next. I don't know about you, but the time in the FP is way harder than the TWW...just drags on and on and on....

Yes. That was the main reason why i asked how to shorten the fp. My lp is fine. It would be awesome to have a 14 day fp. The egg thing i have heard of. Is it true? I do not know. I have been trying for almost a year and im desperate for an answer. Didnt mean to scare anyone.
