  • Technically you ovulate 12-16 days BEFORE your period. If you have a 28 day cycle, that would put ovulation pretty much in the middle of your cycle.

    I am a 31 day cycle so I ovulate to the latter part of the middle.
    You will know you are ovulating when your basal body temp changes, your cervix position and opening changes, and your cervical mucous increases to egg-white consistancy. Taking Charge of your Fertility by Toni Weschler is a great reference on the subject.

  • Typically it's 12-17 days BEFORE you ovulate. 17 days is typically the longest a luteal phase will be unless there is a problem. The best way to know when your ovulating is to chart cervical mucus, cervical position and then following that up with Basal Body Temperature. You can learn about all of this in the book Taking Charge Of Your Fertility

    If you are charting BBT there will be no confusion as to whether the mucus you are having is ovulation or pregnancy.

  • You ovulate approximately half way thru your cycle. If you have a 28 day cycle you ovulate on day 14. 34 day cycle day 17 is ovulation.

  • 2austisticmom...that's not necessarily true. Women don't ovulate on a certain day based on their cycle length. They ovulate when they ovulate.

    I never ovulate until after day 20 no matter how long my cycle is.

  • Everyone is so different. I am a 29 day cycle and have ovulated on cycle day 14 or 15. Stress and life can play with that sometimes.
    I also rely more on my cervical mucus to let me know when I am ovulating as well as OPK's and lastly my morning temp (once it has gone up and stayed up for at least three consecutive days in a row, I know that I ovulated the day before my temperature rise).After charting for a couple of months I was able to interpret this better. Good luck!
