It would help if you had a chart to show. If you’re ovulating then it should be about two weeks before Asow how’s up, soaround CD34 give or take a few days based on how long your LP is. My cycle is averaging about 40 days, but I’m not ovulating, so it’s not really a cycle…

I have had some really long cycles before, but it was when I wasn’t ovulating (I have PCOS).  I definitely would start charting. It will help you get to know your cycles.

My cycles averaged about 34 with some being 40+.

I think it will be beneficial to you to us a OPK if you have not? That way there’s no if ands or buts.

Mine averages 36 days, (sometimes less, sometimes more).  We’re not in the TTC process but I recently started keeping track of it just so I’m better aware of what’s going on when that time actually comes.

I have ridiculously long cycles, but like @Sunshine1810, it’s because they are almost always annovulatory. Charting will help you to figure out if your cycle is regular, just long – or if there may be a hormonal reason as to why.

@dgb2010: Most women have a Luteal Phase (the time between ovulation and your period) of 12-16 days, with an average of 14 days, so if you are expecting your period on the 11th or 12th, you would expect to ovulate anywhere from Dec. 26-31. If your ovulation takes place over the weekend, that would give you a shorter LP. Your LP needs to be at least 10 days for implantation to occur. OPKs or charting would give you a better idea if/when you’re ovulating.

I’m with @jaguar — my cycles are mostly anovulatory and typically don’t end on their own without medication. 🙁
