Early ovulation question?

So I have a regular 28 day cycle. I ov on cd15 and af starts on cd28. My periods are usually medium/light and last around 3-4 days. Having used opks to detect my LH surge up until this cycle, I would get a very visible line around the beginning of my fertile week which would get progressively darker and then become much lighter once I ov. However last cycle, things went a bit weird and my period didn't show until cd29 and when it did, it was very heavy and only lasted a day, the next day I only had a tiny bit of pink spotting then nothing at all. I was trying not to obsess so much this cycle so I stopped using opk's and tracking symptoms on my fertile apps. A few days ago I was having some ov pains which since disappeared and my boobs started getting sore and tender afterwards (normal post-ov symptom for me) but as I was expecting to be ov'ing today, I took an opk last night expecting a positive or at least a dark line. But there was barely a second line at all, I had to really squint to see it. Now I'm wondering if I've ov'd early. If I did, does that mean af will arrive earlier? I know that the general rule is 14 days after ov is when you get af but not sure how it works to be honest! Just want to be prepared for her if she's going to show early!

I think if you ovulate earlier then AF would be early too, it's meant to be 14 days from O to AF but obviously everyone is a bit different HTH

Yes, the luteal (post-ov) phase is supposed to stay the same length whereas ov can vary. So you have a 12 day luteal phase by the sounds of it.
