  • My advice is to buy the Clearblue Fertility Monitor and or ovulation predictor strips to detect the LH surge. The LH surge is a hormone that surges about 36 hours before your egg pops out. Intercourse on that day increases chances of pregnancy dramatically.
  • On average a women ovulates about two weeks before her period starts.
  • I ovulate about 20 days after the start of my period and I think all women should know. I have ovulated as early as the 16th day. I highly recommend the Couple to Couple League ( It is a catholic thing because they don't believe in birth control, but if you can get past the preachy stuff it is really helpful in learning about how your body works.
  • The ideal way of knowing when you ovulate is to purchase ovulation kits from the chemist and/or supermarket. Generally women ovulate between days 12-18. The kits have 5 testers in them, sometimes you may need to purchase two kits to know exactly when your body is ovulating if your cycles are irregular.
  • If you have an irregular period, then it is hard to predict when you ovulate. Being irregular means you could ovulate 2 times a month, have 2 periods a month, or like 2 periods a year. Physicians suggest that you should not try to predict your ovulation day if you're irregular. I have an irregular period because my cycle length is not the normal 28-day length, instead it's either, 25, 26, 27, or 29 days. For May, it was 29. April, it was 27. March, it was 26.
  • The easiest way to tell if you're ovulating is to check your vaginal mucus. Having a vaginal mucus that is clear, slippery, and stretchable when pinched with two fingers means that you're ovulating. If you have a thick, non-stretchable, egg-white vaginal discharge, then chances are you're not ovulating or you could be having a yeast infection, STD, etc.
  • It is not particularly difficult to tell when you are ovulating---the cervical mucus is more abundant, clear, and stringy. Non-fertile day mucus is scanty, cloudy, and tacky. You can tell the difference on toilet paper if you pay attention. You get fertile mucus for a few days before you ovulate, to assist sperm in getting past the cervix and into the womb. If you avoid making love during the fertile mucus times and for three days afterward, you will not get pregnant. You can have fertile mucus more than once in your cycle.
  • They sell ovulation tests in most drug or grocery stores.
  • You can purchase an ovulation test kit that is available from a pharmacy/chemist. It usually contains about five tests.
  • My best advice and what worked for me is to start with the earliest days..for instance next month start using the ovulation predictor 12 days before last months period (it don't matter if you have irregular periods) began and chart from there. You will more than likely get a positive reading sometime during that time. Hope that this helps!!

If it is mostly regular, ovulation occurs two weeks after the first day of your last menstrual period. This is the best time to get pregnant (including a day or two before and after). If you are irregular, it is much more difficult to find out when ovulation occurs. A thermometer to measure temperature "down there" can help you figure out when this is. The concept is still the same - it may be anywhere from 10-18 days since the first day of your last menstrual period.

If you get your period chances are you are not pregnant. If you don't get your period and you are pregnant, your doctor/midwife will want to determine when you most likely conceived, to do this he/she will want to know the first day of your last period. If you have a 28 day cycle ovulation usually occurs in the middle of your cycle.

Yes. If you haven't been getting your period that means that you have not been ovulation. Ovulation usually occurs about 2 weeks before your period is due to arrive, so if you ovulate and there happens to be sperm present, then yes, you could become pregnant. However, if you wish to become pregnant you should go to your DR and find out why you haven't been menstrating so that they may correct the problem.

The 6 days prior to your ovulation is your most fertile period. Even after you ovulate it is still possible to get pregnant within 12 hours of your ovulation time. If you do not know the exact time that you ovulate then it could be possible if you had intercourse the day after your ovulation. You will just need to relax and wait up to 2 weeks to find out if you are pregnant or not.

You may be able to find a ovulation calculator in a hospital or some other medical development. Or knowing your body enough you can tell when you are going to ovulate.

Ovulation cycles can be calculated using simple formulas based on your current menstrual cycle. I would visit WebMD to find out more on these ovulation calculators.

Some women have a sharp pain from the ovary when the egg is released but many women don't. This pain is called Mittelschmirtz. If you don't have this pain you need to take your Basal Body Temperature every morning. A woman passes a egg during ovulation. Basically when a woman ovulates this means her egg is in the correct position to be fertilised and comes with a high risk of pregnancy. When this occurs a woman will lose cervical mucus that looks like egg-whites. This is the ovulation discharge. Ovulation usually occurs around day 14 of a womans cycle in a 28 day cycle. If your cycles are different buy a ovulation kit to find out your fertile dates. The other form of passing a egg is when a womans egg breaks down and forms into a period. I hope this has helped you some. Take care.

To calculate for the exact ovulation day, you need to use an ovulation calculator. But first you have to know when is the date of your last period's first day and your menstrual cycle, before you can calculate your most fertile period. You can also observe your cervical mucus discharge if it has a consistency similar with a raw egg white. When your ovulating, it should look slippery and clear. You may also use an ovulation kit, which is a precise method of determining the most fertile days.

yeah you can purchase them right at your local pharmacy. Keep track of your period the day you start and they day you end every month and they have free ovulation calanders on line which are helpful. Just google free ovulation calander and some will come up. good luck

Blood tests and the better urine tests can pick up pregnancy 3 weeks after your last period. Most of the home tests will do so around the time your period is due. All of this assumes that ovulation was not delayed for some reason and occurred approximately two weeks after the last period.

You can get pregnant at any time, but it mostly depends on your cycle. For the average 28 day cycle, the best time is 14 days after you start your period. I would advise you to find an ovulation calendar and find out what it is for you personally.

Hi, I'm having the same problem with my pill... Did you ever find out the reason?

If you have your regular period you can't be pregnant. but every woman is different some can see their period and not know their pregnant that's why it's so confusing because i know someone who is pregnant and they had their period come regular, like it always do every month... so everybody is different the best thing to do is to go to the doctor and find out from them..... i feel that will be the best thing for you.... just find out through them....
