Is my ovulation too late to conceive ?

I am 31 years old and trying to conceive our second child for four months. I have tracked my ovulation patterns and I ovulate on day 21 of a 28-31 day cycle which is only a 10 day lutual phase on average. I have no medical history and had no problems conceiving our first child. Is my ovulation too late to conceive and when should I go see a doctor about this?

Hello.
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
How did you know that you ovulate on day 21 of a 28 day cycle? To exactly know about your ovulation it is advisable you use Lh surge kits around the midcycle available in the market.Try conceiving after having sex after LH surge for 2-3 cycles then think about the treatment.

I have used ovulation test kits for all three cycles and got the same result. What kind of treatments can help and what can I do in the meantime?

Hi, I have been trying to conceive for just over a year now. I was on the pill from when I was 15, I came off it Jan 2013 (I am 29 years old). I have a 29 day cycle. I started using the clearblue fertility monitor. One month I ovulate mid cycle, the next month is always very irregular. The first time I ovulated around day 17/18 of my cycle and this time the fertility monitor has shown high levels of estrogen from day 12 - till today day 19 and I still haven t peaked and ovulated. Is late ovulation a problem? Is there a way of regulating when I ovulate? Could this be why I am struggling to conceive? Thanks so much in advance for your help.

I tested positive for ovulation three days in a row and we had intercourse a day before the tests were postive and on all the days it was positive and after.

I am trying to become pregnant, am 38.
