Why didn't I ovulate?

hey everyone,

My question is on ovulation.  I am usually on a 35 day cycle but this month, it seems to be a lot longer.  I did not ovulate last weekend like I was suppose to and I still haven't.  I am taking temps every morning and observing my ewcm.  No signs or anything yet!!! My temps have been staying low for the past 25 days.  What could be wrong?  Maybe I won't ovulate this cycle.  Does this mean I won't get a period next month.  I am going on day 28 of my cycle and still no signs of ovulation.  Help!!! This is driving me crazy.  Has anyone ever ovulated this late before?  This is not a regular cycle for me so is this normal?

Yep I have or I haven't O at all..... I'm currently on CD 51 so either I oed really late or I haven't at all.....I normally haven't noticed this before I mean not this long......the longest cycle I've had before was 39 days and that was last month.  So I can feel your frustration as I didn't o til cd 27 last month.

wow!  51 days is long huh? I don't think I could wait that long.  My longest cycle has been 40 days.  Maybe it's just stress.  I barely had any cm this month.  It has been dry as a desert.  My dh and I have been trying for almost a year.  It would be our first child.  I am 31 years old and am freaking out.  I am afraid they might find something horrible like and I can't conceive.  I read all the post on this forum and can see all the frustration.  I can't help but feel depressed.  I certainly didn't think this would be a problem for me when I  was in my 20's.  Any advice on how to stay patient and hope to be normal?  I am suppose to get my period may 9th.  Guess that won't be happening this month.

Well I'm just 21 and DH is 23 and we are having trouble we've had 1 MC and no other children......we've been trying 2 1/2 years.  This month I sware I should have ovulated at least 4 times as much as I've noticed a change in CM I had quite a bit but I don't know if I oed or not.  I got to the Dr. next Monday I'm hoping they tell me BFP but I doubt it.  I took HPT last Wednesday and it was neg.  but I guess there's always a chance.

Thanks for the comforting thoughts.  It's nice to know you're not alone.  I just feel like maybe I wasn't meant to have a baby.  Maybe God has something else in store for me.  As much as I want to be pregnant, maybe I won't be a good mom.  Did you guys see that episode of Oprah where they showed alll these women in their 30's?  One of the women was ttc and she struggled for years.  She was so deep into it, from buying a 4 bedroom house and driving an SUV.  What Oprah told her was she had to "let it go" has just stuck with me since I saw that.  Oprah also says that maybe God has something else in store for her.  When I saw that episode, I thought about myself and maybe that could be me.  That woman tried everything from IUI to IVF and still no baby.  I just get more and more depress each time I think about the situation.  How unfair it has been for all of us> why is it soo easy for some women and so tough for others.  Sorry, I just wanted to vent.  Thanks for listening.  Please don't let this message discourage you guys.  

Good Luck to you both

You are definitely not alone.  I'm 32 and have been trying for almost one year with our first child.  Last month I had a 42 day cycle and I don't think I ovulated.  I got very freaked out like you and I called the dr and have an appt for tomorrow.  I think I'm just going to ask him to run test for me because I'm getting depressed and concern.  I got some blood tests back in November and I was fine.  DH got a sperm test and he was fine.  I just want other tests to be done so I can have a clear mind.  A day doesnt' go by that I don't pray a think of having a baby.  Let's hope this will be the year for us all.  Sticky baby dust.

My DH and I have been trying to conceive for awhile now. We have had 4 MC,Fertility testing,the whole nine yards. I didn't seem to have trouble getting Pregnant,just continued to MC. But this last Month I used a Ovulation kit and I didn't ovulate. I am 41,we do not have Children and have been trying to have a Baby for two Years now. As I was reading your story about maybe God has another plan, maybe you are right.  I think I will try Clomid next cycle and hopefully it will work. Good Luck to you and God bless.

two months ago i was taking 3 different things to increase conception and had sooo much cervical mucus i just wanted to share it with you gals. i literally felt like i was so wet it was like i was having my period, and that hasn't been the case since i was in my early 20's.   i was taking fertilAid supplements, fertileCM, and also powdered maca mixed in my yogurt or in water, every day.  at first i thought it had to be the maca since i'd read so many great things about it, but then i ran out of fertileCM and the next cycle i didn't have nearly as much CM.  it's true that i may not have been as good about drinking water but the whole experience gave me hope that i'll be able to enhance my fertility a few months from now (this is a really bad financial time for me and i think i'm too stressed out to conceive at the moment). if you feel dry, try taking that combo or at least the fertile cm with the maca and i'll bet you will notice a huge difference. it really gave me hope.  oh yeah... and be sure to drink plenty of water, i hear that's like, one of the biggest things you can do to boost fertility.

good luck!

one more thing - i just found this online (re: maca) and thought i'd share:


"MACA has been known to increase a  women's ability to conceive rather dramatically. This happens because of MACA's ability to promote the production of the Luteneinizing Hormone (LH). The LH causes ovulation. MACA has also been shown to increase sperm counts in men. Research studies on animals were conducted by Dr. Gloria Chacon de Popovici and Dr. Freddy Madrid Gironda with extremely successful results in almost all cases! (These studies will be published sometime later on this year.)"

true, this was from a website that is selling it (imperial gold maca, i think it was)  but i think it's interesting that it could increase LH.  i had never even heard of maca until about 4 months ago. i'm going to start taking it more regularly when (hopefully) the stress has gone down a little.
