dull ache and late period??


First, sorry if this is a ridiculous question but I've never been comfortable with periods and I'm never sure what is "normal" and what is not.

I'm 19 and have been getting periods for about 5 years now so I'm out of the
puberty "irregular periods because of crazy hormones" category.

I have been taking some natural supplements (under the guidance of an ND)to help regulate my periods and ease some PMS symptoms. While they have helped my PMS symptoms tremendously, they have done nothing to regulate my cycles.

Now here's the question: about two weeks ago I started feeling a pain in my right ovary. It was not a bad pain, but a constant dull ache. I told my mom and she said if it got worse to let her know. It stayed the same for about 2 days and then went away. I assumed the pain was related to ovulation because it was around days 17-20 of my cycle. However, my cycle is now "late", I'm at day 38 and I've had that constant dull ache (but a little stronger) in my right ovary all day today (which makes me think it isn't ovulation related).

While the pain isn't unbearable, it does concern me a little - especially since my periods have never been regular and I've always felt as if they just "weren't right" that something is off. So I guess my question is, is this ache something I should be concerned about? Or should I just ignore it unless it gets worse? Also, could this pain be at all related to my late period or even my irregular periods in general?
