Dr. Braverman,

In your research and experience, when melatonin delays ovulation in a natural cyle, should the cycle be skipped? I ovulate like clockwork every month on CD 12-14. I have yet to surge and believe it is due to the melatonin (3mg daily) I added since my last cylcle. Its been 3 days since ive taken the melatonin and still have yet to surge. Ive read conflicting opinions if the cycle should be skipped if ovluation has not been detected by a certain cycle day. What are your thoughts on this?

Thanks in advance for your willingness to share your knowledge and help women like me who have RPL.

If there is a mature follice , I would just trigger with HCG and not worry about the LH surge.
