Is this normal?
Wed, 07-06-2011 - 9:12pm

Hi ladies, I am curious about something. I am on my second cycle PP. I have had my period twice and there were 41 days between my first and second period. I am usually at least 5 or 8 days or so later than 28 days per cycle. I also have been taking OPK tests every couple days and have consistently gotten negatives. I am not trying to rush anything, but I am wondering if 2 cycles in a row of non-ovulating is normal. I've heard of a non-ovulatory first cycle but so far this time nothing either. Not trying to rush things, just curious. Thanks a lot for the help.

Totally normal - you might have a few more cycles that are annovulatory. Short LP's are common in the beginning too. Your body is just getting back into the swing of things and long cycles etc. can be expected. The good news is that you are on your way! :)
