Hi there,

I could really use some help with dates! I came on 7th/8th feb. Had a similey face on ClearBlue OPK on Saturday 23rd Feb in the evening and following day. My cycles are usually 28 days but have been known to be late by a week. Because I ovulated late into my cycle, will my period come later therefore doing a pregnancy test now would be too early?

Thank you!

The luteal phase (from ovulation to period) is usually 14 days, so a late ovulation means a late period. I think I would wait at least 10 days from ovulation/sex before I took a test.

Thank you, so late ovulation would essential cause a late period?

Yes, I think so.

Agreed late ov =late af. But did you actually ov late?? If you ov on the 24th, but your cycle started on the 8th - that's cd 12?? Which would likely give you a 27 day cycle this time??

@physicskate is the 8th to the 24th not going to make it CD17 for ovulation rather than CD12? That would be late ov therefore late AF as well?
