Ovulation day 18??


Hi all,
as away last week with partner and my mom, therefore bding took a back seat....however still did opk each morning and was a very faint line from tuesday onwards until this afternoon when i did one it was definitly the same darkness as the test strip.

this will be my day 18 and usually i always have a 28 day cycle. this is my first month using opk. i am so pleased to see that i am actually ovulating.

do you think this months cycle will be longer or maybe that is where we have been going wrong i have been ovulating later in the month iinstead of the usual 14 days after af.

any advice welcomed.xxx

I had a 32 day cycle, however, this past month I o'd on day 25 & I end up having a 41 day cycle. Depending on how long your LP is, usually defines when AF will come!

the first month i used opks... i found out i was ovulating later than usual as well! the next month, i ovulated right when i thought i did... i was so worried about testing all the time and everything around me i think i delayed it a few days, which is not uncommon! I knew it happenedn late bc i have a 31 day cycle each month... and it was 33 days that one time. it took me a few cycles to reallly see a clear picture of what was going on. get to BDing and happy egg fertilizing!! dont be surprised if af seems late!

Sometimes ovulation delay can be caused by stress or even travelling... So if you say you were away, it could be caused by that. If your O was on day 18, then your AF should be on day 30 - 32. When TTC I used to take my BBT to find out when my O was and it was working really well. For me better than OPK

You could have a 10 days LP. It's good to do this for a few months to know for sure whether your LP is too short.

What if my LP is to short what will that mean??

thanks again ladies xxx

If it's too short, you could have problems getting pregnant as there might not be enough time for implantation, but the only way to know for sure is to keep track of your signs for a few cycle. You can take something to extend it or ask doctor to prescribe progesterone. On the other hand, you could have just missed your ovulation because you assumed it's early than it actually is.
