    Yvette Smith, MD, MPH responded:
    Your cycles are a bit on the long side and it would be reasonable to investigate a bit more. An ovulation predictor kit would give you some idea of whether you are ovulating. I would also see your healthcare giver and discuss your cycle. They might want to consider thyroid testing or other blood work to be sure there isn't something going on that could be addressed immediately.

    Were your cycles long before you went on the pill? Are you on any type of supplements or over-the-counter nutritional or vitamin products? These are things that should be reviewed as well.
