how late can you ovulate for a day 21 blood test to be positive??


Posted by lilly_28

I know people tend to say allow 7 days from ovulation to have a progesterone blood test, but can it be less than that? i had bloods taken on day 23 with a result of 69.5 so ovulation occured, im now cycle day 33 today and no period yet?? if i ovulated 7 days before day 23 i would now be late for my period bu if i ovulated the day before i had my blood test i wouldnt be late yet, any advice?

Do you happen to know which day you actually ovulated? That can totally make a difference as to what could be happening because that leaves a five to six day window either way. 

Are you using any other ovulation detection method outside of your blood draws? Charting, ferning, Ovuwatch, OPK's, etc?

 

On average how long do your luteal phases seem to be?
