Are Annovulatory cycles longer than normal?

It's looking like I didn't ov this month. My usual length of cycle is around 26/27 days. The longest it's ever been is 29, but this is the exception rather than the rule.

Today is CD32, still no AF, which brings me to my question. Is this one longer because it's annovulatory?

Thanks smile

I had something very similar two cycles ago. I was charting, got no clear peak and af was late but had bfn. Don't worry too much, most women have a couple of anovulatory cycles per year not if it's happening a lot it's worth going to your GP.

Can you remember how late you were? Still nothing here and a BFN just now. It's just interesting that the late side of things have come with the lack of ovulation and wondering if they tend to come together.

Usually 26 day cycle but as short as 24, this one was 28.

Yes, apparantly your oestrogen levels continue to rise when you don't ovulate thus causing a delay in your AF. I often don't ovulate and this is what the gp explained to me - it can also result in you getting PMT for a longer period of time than usual because of the extra oestrogen in your system.
