Evening Primrose oil reason for missing period?

I took evening primrose oil for ONE cycle – I repeat ONE cycle.  What it did was essentially delay my ovulation by an entire week, and when you are TTC that really threw our timing off!!  I thought for certain that I was having an annovulatory cycle until I finally noticed the temp spike indicating ovulation on my bbt chart.  I was mad as a hornet because I felt like it was a completely wasted month – and it was – thanks to the evening primrose oil. 

So with that being said – since I ovulated a week later than I should have, naturally my period was pushed back as well and ended up arriving a week late as well.  You can ovulate at any time during your cycle – but your luteal phase (the amount of time in between ovulation and menses) will remain the about the same every time.  So if you ovulated later than you should have – WAHLAH:  Late period.
