I seen another post about ovulation that made me think of this. I'm supposed to ovulate on the 8th... Says I am supposed to. That is just a guess right, I could actually ovulate on say the 4th or the 10th? I'm just confused about it all.Answer Question

Ovulation occurs 11-16 days before your period starts, no matter how long your cycle is, and you're most fertile for the 2-3 days before ovulation. I believe most ovulation calendars will give you an ovulation date about 14 days before your next period is due, but it could really be up to a couple of days before or after that, and then there's always the chance that you could have a wacky cycle one month and ovulate really early or late. The best thing to do is use a website like www.fertilityfriend.com and start charting and/or using OPK's so you know exactly when you ovulate each month, and that way you can catch those wacky cycles, too.
