Still have a longer than average cycle? I have been kind of crampy today but i am only on cd 7 or 8 and usually i have 32ish day cycles. Could i be ovulating earlier in my cycles? According to ovultion calenders it should be the 10-15. This may be dumb but i am curious if this could be ovulation pain? I am not using opks or temping or on any meds. Tia

Normally a woman's LP is pretty much the same length every cycle, no matter when she O's. So if you were to ovulate early you would have a shorter cycle. It's probably possible to still have a longer cycle but very unlikely.

This is to the best of my knowledge anyways lol. I would def suggest you start doing something to track O, like temping, using OPKs, or checking cm or cp! HTH!

Your body could have geared up to ovulate...not succeed, and therefore is either trying again, or you ended up ovulating late...which would put your period late as well. Ovulation calendars aren't reliable at all. That's going by what day you "should" ovulate. You could have a 30 day cycle and not ovulate until CD18 and have a 12 day luteal phase.

I've never heard of didelphys but what I read off mayclinic's website, is it possible that you can ovulate twice in a cycle?  I'm not sure but I'd ask a doctor since it is so rare to have didelphys.

I used calendar method to get pregnant with my first two kids but its a lot harder to know exactly when you are going to ovulate without temping and charting.  The site most people on here use is http://www.fertilityfriend.com/ and they also have a course so you know what to do.

Looks like you may be my cycle buddy! I'm on cd 13 and also have a 32 day cycle. I've asked the same question. I am having cramps and shoulder pains. Most of my comments told me it was O cramps. I don't temp or chart either. But I surely did BD just in case. Lol. My calendar predicted I would O on the 10th. I'm keeping my eye out on cm this time.
