I keep reading conflicting info about what is considered late ovulation, and whether or not it can/will affect getting pregnant. Last cycle i didnt O until CD 17, this month i am on CD 18 and I think I am Oing today. Does anyone know if this is a problem, should i make an appointment with my OBGYN, or is it normal?
FWIW when i got pregnant with DS my cycles were about the same length as they are now, but i wasnt charting then so i dont know when i was Oing

Well, I don't really know the answer. But I can tell you that some girls just got pregnant last month on AIP who O'd on day 20 and 23. I'm trying to keep hope alive as I am on CD20 and still no temp rise.
CD17 or 18 isn't actually late. Later ovulation doesn't reduce the chance of conception, it just means that if you ovulate really late - you'll have fewer opportunities per year for trying. But you're not really late. We conceived from ovulation on CD38 once, and twice near CD60.
It's normal to feel slightly open all the time after you've had a baby. You can track everything successfully without the cervix check, but if you prefer to do that - just focus on your observations comparatively. How open/closed or soft/firm does it feel today compared to yesterday? How does it feel compared to last week? Then you'll learn your own changes and what they mean.
