If you truly ovulate late, then yes your AF would be late. Your cycle is divided into two phases - the Follicle Phase which is the first day of AF through the day you O and the Luteal Phase which is from 1 day past ovulation until the day before AF starts. Your Follicle Phase can vary - stress and illness can delay ovulation, but your Luteal Phase almost always stays the same length (at most it will vary by a day or so). Most Luteal Phases are around 14 days long, but 12 to 16 is considered normal.
Edited to add - sometime women do experience an anovulatory cycle - it that case AF isn't really AF, but what is called break-through bleeding - that may occur at your normal time for AF or later.
