Making sure your period Is never late

    What if I had my period four weeks ago, I haven't ovulated, and I'm suppose to get my period any day now but nothing? What is happening?!

    Hey madden, there are a couple things that could be going on here. It's possible that your ovulation is delayed this cycle. Ovulation can be delayed for a number of reasons, such as stress, dietary or lifestyle factors, illness, or hormonal imbalances, among other things. Track your cervical fluid and temperatures to determine whether you're approaching ovulation. 

    If you do get your period but didn't ovulate, this is actually not a true menstrual period but rather is known as breakthrough bleeding - it's nothing to worry about, and lots of women experience anovulatory cycles and breakthrough bleeding at some point - but for more information, check out this article:

    I've been having really good cycles for the last 3 or 4 months and would have my temp shift around day 17 or 18. It's now day 21 and I haven't ovulated. My cf has been mostly dry too. The only major change / life event is that my husband and I purchased a hot tub on day 6 of my cycle and I've been using it every night since. Do you think this could be the issue?

    In qlimor, thanks for your comment.  There are a few possible reasons your period might be a few days late - sometimes due to stress or lifestyle factors, women may ovulate later than usual in a cycle and thus have a period that's later than usual.  So it's possible that your simply having a late period and you're not pregnant.  But if you're concerned and you don't get your period within the next few days, you may want to consider taking a pregnancy test to be sure.  I hope this helps!


    Hi Callie, thanks for contacting us!  It seems unlikely that using a hot tub would cause a delayed ovulation.  It may be more likely simply coincidence (sometimes women's cycles vary for no obvious reason), or stress can cause delayed ovulation as well.  So don't worry - it's fairly unlikely that the hot tub could be affecting your cycle!

    Hi Svenja,

    What is VAC?  This may help me try to answer this question.

    I am concerned because my cycles have been getting longer and longer. When I first stopped using the pill and got into using Kindara I had two average length cycles, 28 days and 31 days. Then it went to 32, 34... And now my cycles are up to 37 days long. I've tracked my ovulation in the longer cycles to occur around day 20. What is going on?
