  • Are you using a temp chart? Now would be a good time to start one. More reliable.

  • I would think it would be 14 days from the start of your period..sperm can stay alive inside you for up to 3 days so even if you have sex 3 days before you ovulate you can still get pregnant so just have as much sex as you can as soon as your period subsides. one trick i learned that worked for my first child, it sounds a little funny but after you guys finish don't get up and clean yourself, lay down put your hands under your lower back and lift your legs and butt in the air and stay there for a few minutes. it will help the sperm get where they need to go faster! ;) good luck!

  • Start having sex every other day on day 10-18. You should hit ovulation if your cycle ends up a little short or even a little longer.

    Try to use this ovulation calendar tool to trace your cycle and find the date of ovulation.
