    How long for cycle to return to normal?

    I had my egg retrieval December 17th and got AF on December 23rd, which was when it was expected. Prior to beginning this process my period was like clockwork. It was always between 27 and 29 days. Now, this month, I am on day 33 and there is no sign of AF. I don't even feel the cramps that I normally get a couple of days ahead of time. Does anyone know if it is typical after stimming and egg retrieval? I did have very high estrogen upon retrieval but, as I said, it came on time the first time, less than a week after the procedure. Most people wouldn't be concerned but I'm just cautious because I am always so regular.

    Just for anyone else who might have this problem in the future, AF did end up coming after 35 days. Apparently any left over follicles become cysts and it can take a few months to fully absorb them. These cysts can affect the cycle. Since I was an over responder I had many small follicles beyond the 19 retrieved so this is likely my issue. Looking forward to getting fully back to normal
