Thanks for writing to us.

If you are having a regular 35 day cycle then you should ideally check for dominant follicle formation and rupture till day 22 of your cycle. Since till day 14 there is no dominant follicle formed then the chances of developing a dominant follicle in this cycle are less.

In my opinion,you should go for all the hormonal assessment - LH, FSH, etc before going for ovulation studies, under the guidance of an expert gynnaecologist.

You can ask her to give you a ovulation induction medicine like Lutrozole or clomiphene and then monitor the activity of ovaries.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful.

Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.
