  • There is no way to tell when or if you ovulated. You could have conceived anywhere between the 11th and the 24th. Read each pregnancy test to see when it can tell if you are pregnant. You could buy a lot of tests and test once every morning.

  • Yes, you could be pregnant. IF you ovulated. But like Gailll said, there's no way to know now when/if you ovulated. If you did ovulate, and it was around the 11th, then a test would probably be accurate it now. If you didn't ovulate until the end of that period of time, then a test won't be accurate until the middle of March.

    If you don't want to wait for a period to show (or not), then take a test now and see. If it's negative, then wait a week and take another test if your period doesn't show. If still negative, do it again the next week. And so on and so forth until you get either a positive test or your period. Without knowing exact date of ovulation or conception, that's the only way to do it (unless you want to test even more often, but it would save a lot of money and give you just as good results to do it once a week).

  • Don't test for pregnancy until you have missed your next period.

  • If it were a normal cycle you probably ovulated anywhere from the 10th-16th depending on the number of days in your cycle and if it is regular. However with the nuva ring interference it is impossible to know. Kind of weird that you used the Nuva ring if you both really want another baby. At any rate you can't test until you miss your period because there's no telling if the BC messed up your cycle.
