why do websites give you so many days as to when you're ovulating? when i thought it was really only 2 dys you could conceive on, how are you suppose to track that date??

  • you will still have discharge when you ovulate.

    I always check my mucous internally. you will also notice that you feel wet during the day when you are fertile. almost like you have had an accident.

  • Because ovulation occurs on average between 12-16 days prior to your period, they are giving the range. I always ovulate on day 15. Each woman will ovulate on a specific day but without you taking your temp and charting, the sites can only give the average of when women ovulate based upon your cycle length.
