  • Wait till your periods start getting back to normal to get an accurate Ovulation Day. Online they have calendars that can help you. They work, thats how I got pregnant!... Another way is.. You start with the first day of your period, go forward two weeks, whatever day that is.. add a day in front of it and a day behind it... Those three days are your most fertile days.

    Good Luck to you!

  • You ovulate 14 days from the first day of your last period. So lets say you started your period today 11/24 you would ovulate on Dec 8. This is of course if you have a 28 day cycle and are regular. If you have a 30 day cycle then you would ovulate on day 15.

  • not every woman ovulates on day 14. that is myth. the usual range is from cycle day 11-cycle day 16. you can also tell by your cervical fluid.
