Does late ovulation mean late period?
Alright...I realize that my question will probably be answered by full force AF later today...but at this point by posting at least I feel like I'm DOING something about it!  LOL!

My LMP was July 19th.  According to my OPK, I got my surge on 8/4.  That is CD16 (2 days later than "normal").  Does this mean my period would start two days later than normal?  8/16 is 28 days...so would I expect to get my period on 8/18?

The reason I ask all of this is because I am 10DPO and had some light brown blood tinge when I wiped earlier.  I put in a tampon just to see more closely and it had a little bit of pink on it.  I have never experienced implantation bleeding so I don't know what to look for.  This VERY WELL could be the start of AF...but it would be CD26 and I was expecting my period to be LATE (CD28 or later!) this time because I ovulated late.

What do you think?

*sigh*...are you all confused yet??  LOL!

BTW - Sorry if I'm not using all the acronyms correctly!  :)

women typically begin menstruation 12-14 days after ovulation...some a little earlier, some a little later.  so, i am thinking since you ovulated late, you can probably expect your period a little later than usual.  incase you are pregnant, i would use a panty liner instead till you know for sure as i have heard tampons can cause infection??  not sure if it's true, but i have read that...  implantation usually occurs 6-10 days after ovulation so that is definitely a possibility.  mine was at 7dpo and just a tiny bit of brown spotting when i wiped.  they say that after implantation, you should wait 2-5 days to test so there is enough hcg to result in a positive if you are pregnant.  i didn't get my positive till about 5 days after implantation...12 dpo.  if your spotting continues but doesn't feel like a real period, take a hpt in a week.  i hope this helps!  good luck to you!  :-)

To my knowledge late ovulation does cause late period.  Typically women start AF 14 days after ovulation.  (i.e. ovulate on day 14 AF comes after day 28).  I always ovulated late and AF would come precisely 14 days after ovulation (ovualted on day 28, AF came on day 42) HTH

Thanks ladies for your input!  This will probably be like everything else is my life and I will fall OUTSIDE of the statistic!  LOL!  With the late ovulation, I should NOT be starting AF today...but time will tell.  The intensity of it hasn't picked up yet...but the blood I am noticing is more red than I've heard implantation should be.  *sigh*...maybe next month!

YES i would say it does!! I used to think it was my body playing mean tricks on me but from being here and getting a TTC buddy to help figure the charts out i know its all ovulation's fault!! Whatever day you O'ed on add that plus 14 days and thats your new day go by! i did that when i o'ed late (CD17) and it was right on track i started on exactly the new date!

Thanks!  Still not full force AF.  If I don't have my period tomorrow morning I'll probably test out of a last ditch effort.  Still clinging to small hope that it's just implantation bleeding.  :)
