Hi, ladies. I introduced myself a long time ago when I was pregnant. DD is now 4 months old, and DH and I have had 3 months of successful, natural pregnancy prevention! It's been surprisingly easy so far, so I haven't had any questions for this board, but something just came up recently.

My cycle is the textbook 28 day, 14 until ovulation and 14 lp. My period has always been 6 days long. But this cycle, my period was only 3 days long. So, I'm not sure if that means I'll ovulate 3 days earlier? Does the length of your period effect ovulation?

Thanks!

Nope. I usually have a 2-3 day AF with a day or so of spotting afterwards and I almost always ovulate between day 15-17.

Yep I agree with her, the length of your period does not affect when you ovulate, don't get caught up in that, just look for signs other than predicting by calendar dates to see when you'll o.

After having a baby it is really common for cycles to change, and continue to change even for a while, and Zadie is for sure not that old, so expect some possible other changes. After Rock my period became so much better than it ever had before

The length of your period does not determine when you will ovulate. Even if you have very regular cycles, be careful not to fall into a "rhythm method" mentality of assuming ovulation will occur on a certain cycle day just because it did in the past. Every woman is bound to ovulate a little earlier or later than usual once in awhile, so apply the NFP rules based on daily observations and not by the calender!
