    Yes a late ovulation is almost always the cause of a late period. If you’re TTC I recommend temping. It will take the guesswork out.

    Don’t go crazy! I didn’t get AF for more than two months after stopping BC in September and have had extremely long cycles (we’re talking 70 days) since. For me the cause is late ovulation, confirmed by temping. It’s really frustrating but doctor isn’t concerned yet.

    Cycles will be irregular after getting contraception removed, even if it’s non-hormonal. If your test is negative, start temping now and give it a cycle or 2 to return to normal. If it doesn’t then make an appointment. If you go longer than 60 days without a period, then make an appointment.

    You will get your period most likely about 14 days after ovulation but I think anywhere from about 10-16 days after ovulation is considered normal. You may not have even ovulated yet if you still don’t have your period.  And of course there are anovulatory cycles where you don’t ovulate at all. I temped when ttc and was lucky to see a pattern of when I ovulated and almost always had very regular cycles so eventually I just stopped temping.  

    Edit to add:  mentioning I could eventually stop temping just to give you a light at the end of the tunnel that you could possibly just temp for awhile and then know your cycle and stop.  Or maybe get pregnant;)

    one more edit – you could call but I think they will tell you to just keep waiting awhile longer.

    Yes more than likely. Your luteal phase is pretty standard, and it could range from 10 to 16 days about, whereas you ovulate when your body decides to, and it varies from month to month.
