  • It depends. How long is your cycle, from the first day of your period to the first day of your next period? You generally ovulate 11-16 days before the start of your period, so if you have a 28-day cycle, you probably ovulated sometime from Nov 30-Dec 5. If your cycle is longer, then you may not have ovulated yet. But no one can tell you anything based just on the information you've given here.

    Read Taking Charge of Your Ferility by Toni Weschler and check out for info on charting. That will help you the most, and you'll be able to pinpoint each month when you ovulate.

  • How far apart are your periods? If they're regularly 28 days apart, then you would have ovulated around the 2nd of Dec. Most women aren't so consistent, however, so anytime around that would be the time. If you know when you're due, subtract 14 days.

  • Anywhere between during your last bleed and during your next... ovulation is a lot less mechanical than the cute little wheely charts suggest. Temperature charting can help you find your ovulations, but only if you have a pretty regular cycle... and ovulate regularly, too.

  • None of us can tell you that. You need to learn to chart cervical mucus to figure out when your fertile phase is and then chart BBT to confirm ovulation.

    Ovulation is NOT a guessing game, most women do not ovulate 14 days after the start of their period...the is a MYTH....and all women have different cycles.

    Get the book Taking Charge of Your Fertility.

  • Around Dec 3rd or so. Hard saying for sure. Could be ovulating today.
