Lots of women (myself included) have long cycles. As long as you're ovulating consistently, and relatively early (before CD28 or so) and have a decently long LP (12 days or more) it shouldn't be a problem. The only rub is that it takes five weeks to complete a cycle rather than four.
I used to have long and erratic cycles, so as an experiment I took vitex for one cycle. that cycle was very short and I ovulated very early. every cycle since the vitex cycle, except one where I had a lot of stress, has been 27-29 days long. You could look into vitex as a way to shorten your cycle. being hypo thyroid can cause irregularities and long cycles - I had other symptoms of hypothyroidism, low temps, long mucous patch, in addition to the long, irregular cycles, so I had my doc test my levels. they were within normal limits but it was nice to rule that out.
