Is it true you can't get PG if you ovulate late?


I read somewhere that if you ovulate late, like a week before your period, you cant get PG because implantation wont have enough time to happen. Is this true?

Yes, it's true. If your luteal phase is too short you can not get pregnant. Most people don't ovulate a week before their period though unless there is something wrong.

This is NOT true I am saying this because I got pregnant with my first daughter that way....I ovulated one week before my period and then bled for seven full days but I was still prego and she is 6 now and very healthy...Don't read into everything you see bc what might be true for someone else may not be true for you. What is meant to be will be and if you are meant to be a mother it will happen....Good Luck and anything is possible just remember that!!!

I agree, i had my first child this way too, i had bleeding for a few days but it was really light, still i thought i hadn't concived at this time..i got a positive when my next AF was due as it didn't arrive..the doctor went by my last 'period' as to when i was due but at the scan i actually found out i had concived the month before...so anything is possible ...good luck x

Plus if you ovulate early usually your period comes early(mine did last month by two days)...so if you ovulate late wouldn't it make sence that your period would arrive late too meaning you could have an average LP still??

There's two things here. One is a short LP - it is commonly accepted that 9 days or fewer from ovulation to when your period comes is short, and may be difficult to 'hold' a pregnancy.

Ovulating late is something different. On average people get their period two weeks after they ovulate, which is plenty long for a luteal phase. Ovulating late shouldn't change your LP length, except that your period will come later because it is based on when you ovulate. I believe ovulating 'late' is considered if you ovulate after CD25, and the only way it can really affect your chances at conceiving is that in a given calendar year for example, you will have fewer opportunities to catch the egg if you ovulate later.

And the main point is that it is totally possible to get pregnant while ovulating late!! Look on the fertility friend gallery of pregnancy charts and limit to 'late ovulation' and you will see!! Good luck.

that is truely something i am haven to consider monitoring and keeping an eye on myself before im new to all this BBT and i guess i maybe pos showing alittle ovulation later than i normally thought it would be coming so this is kinda i guess gonna answer my question only time will tell to see if im in for a long TWW not preggy tests neither or a fact of me poss haven a short LP and comeing bang on AF monthly wow!! i cant believe im actually learning so much already about my body and whats it trying to do but this TWW i feel like im on a trial run with me TTC even tho iv only been trying for 2 months so far all i can say to ladies about this one also is dont give up hope fingers croxxed if we get neg preggy tests after our AF is due and still no sign wouldnt that probs make alittle sense also to maybe AF is still on its way ,,,, if it doesnt happen this month keep very close track of your cycles and careful regualr opk testing and close eye on your temp rises with BBT and lots of chin up ladies!!!! we can do it

Don't be worried! Your luteal phase never changes. If you are due then and you just ovulated, you probably will be late.

I wasn't really that clear with my post lol. Ovulating late is totally different than a short luteal phase. Your luteal phase never changes, and if you ovulate late your period will be late. Yes, you can get pregnant if you ovulate late. Lots of people do, but you can't get pregnant if you have a luteal phase of only 6 days since the egg doesn't implant that early.

I thought that must be how it worked, my lutheal phase is 14 days and according to my monthly cycles.com i ovulated 14 days ago today...last month i must have ovulated earlier than predicted because my period started 2 days earlier...this month im still waiting for AF to arrive..i'm having cramps so im pretty sure she's on her way but shes usually here by this time of the day so im thinking i may have ovulated a day or two later than predicted...i have also learnt so much from this site since joining and the ladies on here are all so lovely
