    Hi Ladies

    I was wandering whether anyone could please shed some light for me.

    Can Ov be delayed because you are unwell. I am currently on CD44 and on Sat (CD42) for some reason thought I would test on an OPK (probably cause I was fed up seeing :bfn:on HPT.

    Anyway OPK came up positive and I now think cos I had the flu a couple of weeks ago maybe OV got delated, is this possible ?

    Thanks

    illness and stress can both delay ovulation.
    Also if you have recently come off the pill it can mess with your ovulation cycle.

    Thanks littlestar, was hoping after 5 months off BCP my body might have started regulating but this month may be just down to having the flu.

    Hey Deb

    Yep it definitely can - i have had delayed ovulation (and then :witch:) after i've been ill and also when i've been anxious - despite normally have a regular cycle.

    Fingers crossed that :bfp: will show up for you this month! x
