My question relates to fertility. the length of my periods

Customer Question

Hi , My question relates to fertility. the length of my periods in recent months (the last 3 cycles , 5 months ) has extended from 35 day per cycle to a range between 50 & 56. I have been testing for ovulation and am achieving an LH surge on day 23. My period doesn't happen 2 weeks after that or even 3, and occurs sometime on the 4th week.
Is there anything I can read into these symptoms and is there anything I can do that may assist in bringing on my period. My partner has observed that I have been quite stressed and maybe this is causing these issues,
Thank you
