When should AF arrive following ovulation?

Hi everyone.

This is probably a pointless post and I apologize but I can't share this with friends or family for fear of upsetting them and I know you here understand.

I got an LH surge on 10th July ( cd 12) and 15 days later no sign of a period. My cycle is normally 28 days ( I'm on full flow flow by cd 28 even last month after laparoscopy)

When should I expect AF?

I'm stood on tender hooks waiting for her arrival ( insanely keep telling myself that we did our best this month and there is nothing else we could have done)

Thanks for letting me let off some steam!xoxo

Oh jess I know that youll just on tenderhooks at the moment I know it's pointless me saying trying and leave it a few more days but I know that your mind will be going into overdrive right now. I Really hope this turns out to be good news for you xxx

Still no sign of it- cd 28. I think I'll buy a test today and if it's still not here by tomorrow I'll test. I'm sure buying a test will bring the period on!!! 😣xoxo and I have brought two. 😐

For me, AF is always bang on 14 days after ovulation, which is also when my app predicts by default. Get some cheap tests off amazon to have by you for such moments so you don't have the stress of buying an expensive one from the chemist whilst you're feeling nervous. It reduces the time to build up your hopes (in my experience anyway)... if you have tests handy then you can just get it out of the way and have an answer!
