Hello all,

I have a question and I am hoping someone has an answer for me.

Due to lots of stress (more than I've had in a long time), I am pretty sure my O is delayed. Now, the question: if my O is delayed, do that mean my expected AF will be delayed too?

Any ideas would be helpful!

I am not positive about it but, I do not thimk so. Some people have af and do not ovulate. But stress will cause your expected af to be late.
(this is me as a baby)

I think it would be. If you ovulate late, then AF will be late. Whenever you think you ovulated, af should arrive (approx.) 2 weeks later.

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.

Good luck and lots of ovulation dust!!!!!

That's so confusing because my FP is usually pretty regular it is the LP that fluctuates by 10 days???
