  • What matters is what your ave. cycle is. You ovulate 14 days before the first day of your period. You can't know when that was until your period starts.

  • Your ovulation can change from month to month, some months I did on day 14 and I got pg on day 21 so it is possible. You can always get a test to be sure.

  • most women do ovulate at 14 days, but not all women do. your cycle can change at a moments notice. so, you could be. i would wait a week, and if it still hasn't shown up, get a test or go to the dr for a blood test.

  • Count the days from your day one of your period to day one of your next period. Whatever the number is you ovulate half way through. If it's 28 days you ovulate on day 14, 32 days then it's day 16. It is true that an average cycle vaires from 28-36 days. Many factors in life can change your cycle stress, thyroid function, diet, etc etc. But if your period is around the same time every month then you can pretty much narrow ovulation down. There are only three days though in which the released egg is prime for fertilization so it does take some planning to get pregnant. A healthy couple with no issues can take as long as 18 months to conceive so don't get discouraged if it doesn't happen right away. Do I think you could be...based on the info. given NO. Being sick can throw off your cycle.

  • Cycles vary from woman to woman. Mine is 42 days which is longer than most, but normal for me.
