Delayed ovulation?

Is this real? I read that there are women out there who don't ovulate till day 20 or so?

I had my last period on July 17th. Nothing in August and then very very light spotting a day or two ago. Pregnant maybe? Stress?

  • I have a 33 day cycle and I ovulate on day 19. It's not called delayed ovulation, it's just inherant of my cycle. A delayed ovulation is where you normally ovulate on a certain day but you didn't because of other factors like stress which postpones ovulation and in turn postpones your period.

  • You can ovulate anytime during the month. I have shorter days between my periods. I have a period every 24 days. I also have ovulated early, around the middle and later. So it varys from month to month. If you think you are pregnant then test and see what is says.

  • YES! With both of my daughters, my period was already late when I got pregnant. With my oldest, I had my period the first of January and got pregnant at almost the end of February. With the youngest, I had my period the first of October and got pregnant the end of November. My cycles have always been really messed up. When I was 13 or 14, I could go 3 or 4 months without having a period at all.
