Not sure what’s going on but wanted to point out that it is NOT very rare to get an LH surge and not ovulate. It is very common to not ovulate each month; you have to have enough hormones and your follicles have to be a certain size to actually burst and drop the egg. While TTC I had a positive OPK every month but after lab work it showed in fact I was not ovulating.

Are you charting your BBT?  The only way to tell if you actually ovulated and when is to track your temperature.  It is actually quite COMMON to get an LH surge and then not O.

ditto what septcabride said – you might want to try charting your bbt too. i never had much luck with opk’s alone since they measure a surge in hormones BEFORE you actually ovulate, so you never know what actually happened — i never got a positive but was definitely ovulating cause i’m pregnant now. i wouldn’t worry too much. good luck!

Yea charting your temps would be best; I could never do it bc I work night shift and have weird sleep schedules so my OB said it would be pointless since they would be so inaccurate. Once we found out I wasn’t I was placed on medications to stimulate ovulation and it worked but we had so many other roadblocks ahead that it didn’t work for us. You could still just be adjusting to coming off BC. I wouldn’t think into it too much and temp and see what that tells you. Good luck!

Just to comment on the luteal phase part.  It extremely unlikely that your luteal phase is that long.  14 is average, but the range around that it pretty small, 2-3 days at most.

Temping will definitely help you figure out what’s going on.  I’m on my 10th cycle off BC and nothing has become regular…

Did you take a pregnancy test during your 24 day “luteal phase”?  The reason I ask is I’m wondering if you could have had a chemical pregnancy i.e. a very early miscarriage.  That could be responsible for your symptoms — ovulating on time but late period.
