So confused.

Ok, so i had me period on December fourth and January third. One ovulation calender says i'm fertile the 11-13 on January and another says i'm 18-20. Depending on what day of my period i put..my question is to ovulation tests work? We're trying to get pregnant and i've read about the cervical mucous and there isn't really any. Some cramping but that's it. Should i rely on a test or what? We live an hour and a half away from each other so it's hard to actually get to each other, escpecially cause of his work scheduale...so should we just have sex anyway or what?

  • I would start on the 11 and have sex every other day until you reach the 20th or beyond. I have gotten pregnant off using the ovulation sticks. Good Luck

  • We can't really have sex every day. He works 12 hours a day monday through wednesday. So the best day would be best. And we live an hour and a half away. But i think i've decided that it'll happen when it does. I'm not rushing it.

  • Ovulation tests do work, but they can be kind-of hard to interpret since the test line has to be as dark as or darker than the control line (so you can think you've got a positive, and then a day or two later take another one and say no that's positive, and it's just a pain in the butt). If you're up for it, and you think you can resist seeing a darker line because you want to, then go for it. Or if you have the money, get some of the digital ones that give you a smiley face when it's positive (I think it's Clear-Blue Easy? I think Answer might have a digital one, too).
