Question: 21 married female 35 day menses

 concernedmom21 - Sun Aug 19, 2007 10:28 pm

My daughter is almost 20 months old and my Menstrual cycle is just now seeming to regulate. My cycle is 35 days, I was just wandering if I could still ovulate, and how can I calculate to find the approximate dates that I may ovulate? Will my cycle return to 28 days or is 35 days still okay?

The Dates of My Cycles are as follows.

January 25th -28th 2007
February 19th 2007
March 23rd -26th 2007
April 8th, 25th - 29th 2007
Skipped May
June 4th -10th 2007
July 14th -19th 2007
August 18th -present

Thank you

Mrs. M

User avatar A 35 day cycle is still normal and there are some who would envy you because of the extra time between periods. There is nothing to be worried about and if you need to know when you ovulate, you may consider watching your secretions closely. At the time of ovulation it is normal for your vaginal secretions to increase. Notice any discharge and chart it. You may be able to determine your "normal" ovulation time.

Let us know if you have other questions.

Thank you for the fast reply!

I have always had heavy discharge, and haven't been able to chart because it doesn't seem to change it is always heavy. Would Charting my Basal Temp be easier and how does that work exactly?

Thank you again for the quick reply!
