Your counts starts on day 1 of your period until your next period. Not all women have a 28 day period. Mine was 35 days. The important thing is to know when you are ovulating and in a 28 day cycle that would be days 14-19. Good thing to keep in mind too is that sperm can live 5 days in the uterus. So, if you had unprotected sex on day 11 you could get pregnant on day 14 if you ovulate with the 28 day cycle.
