I've been taking the CVS-brand OPK's since CD 14 and still negatives (now CD 17), plus no other sx of O (no cramping, no significant CM)...And I know I'm being paranoid but I'm starting to bug out! My cycles run 31-33 days the past couple months...Gah! Am I prematurely freaking??? I'm trying to mentally tell my ovaries to O...and trying not to get paranoid which isn't easy given how badly i want this to happen!!!

Any other late O'ers out there to encourage me? I think I o'ed around CD 16 last month...but we weren't TTC then so I wasn't testing or anything. And I'm not temping cuz I'm too forgetful..

Yeah, I have a 28-29 day cycle and I usually O around CD 18 or 19. Is this the first time that you have been using OPKs? They work great for me and I can always see a very clear shift when they go positive, but that's not the case for everyone, so def keep an eye out for other fertility signs!

another one to chime in... my cycle has been around 33 days and I ovulate around CD20 i think (based on CM, not temping, so I cant say for sure).

Generally, you O about 12-14 days before your period. So, going by that range, if you've got a 33 day cycle, you should expect to ovulate around CD 20. If you have a shorter luteal phase, it would be a few days later. So guess anywhere between CD 19-CD 21.

Man! I was just going to post something similar. For the past 4 mos I have o'ed at day 16 and today is day 17 and I haven't even had any evidence of a surge on OPKs, which means I won't o until at least 19 or beyond
This is also my first cycle drinking FERTILITEA which contains vitex, and I realize I have been drinking it a lot, and just googled vitex and delayed ovulation and got a lot of hits (grrr). It sucks when you are waiting w/bated breath and doing a 4 hr urine/fluid hold for NOTHING!!! Hang in there.

Oh yeah, I am way late O'er.. I tested at 8dpo with this pregnancy, because for me, at 8 days, my period was late. So that was day 21 I think?
