  • The calculation thing is kinda was for me really need a book to read and figure it out.....(I am bad at computations =)

    But I could tell when I was ovulating b/c I had period type cramps in the middle of the month.

    Good luck!

  • -- ovulation kit
    -- symptoms like cramps, pain in lower back/ abdomen, whitish discharge to name a few.
    -- raise in body temperature. u can track that with a basal thermometer

  • I always ovulate on day 7. In fact, today is day 7 and sure enough, I felt it in my left ovary. Luckily, Dh has had a big baby for me...It varies from woman to woman. Ten to 14 days is the average. Watch for egg white discharge and heightened libido. Have fun.

  • Get the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility. You take your temp every morning before you get out of bed. Your temp will go up the day after you ovulate and will stay up until you have your period or you will be pg and it will stay up. You will ovulate about the same time every cycle. Your cervical fluid will also be similar to egg whites when you are ovulating. There is tons more info in the book though
