  • Add an extra day of having sex. There is the 3 day window of ovulation, so make it 4 days.

  • Sounds reasonable. Just act as if you ovulate both days to be on the safe side. I'm sure the DH won't have any complaints about a day of extra sex! :)

  • I would use the earliest date to start BDing and the lastest to stop.

  • Figure out the range for both lenghts, and go from earliest to latest, to cover all your bases. Though the best thing to do is chart, especially basal body temperature and cervical mucus, so you'll know for sure--no guess-work required.
