Ovulation question tmi on period

Posted by on Oct. 9, 2013 at 5:43 PM

Ok so my period is not on time every month. I remember last month that it started Aug 14th and lasted a week, this month it started Sept 30th and just now lightening up. I can't remember exactly what they where before but they always usually last a week. I've never been good at telling when I am ovulating.
I've read you ovulate like 10 days after you start your period but when I start the first two days it's an extreme light brown spotting so do I add those days or start when I really start bleeding? Sorry on the tmi.
I've tried calendar apps but with it not coming the same time every month it's prediction is usually off.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Ovulation can occur at any time in your cycle. The only way to know for sure is by taking ovulation tests or tracking your fertility.

When my cycle was super predictable (30.5 days, 4.5 days of bleeding), I ovulated sometime between days 14-16, if you count the first day of bleeding as day 1.

To be honest, I never took a test or anything, but I always got horrible cramps for those three days.

Do you know of any good but cheap ovulation tests? Specially since I would be taking one every day lol, and spending 10 on one test would add very quick.

I guess I never really paid attention, only time I get cramps are right before my period starts.

I typically ovulate 10-14 days after my period.

Here is the info I got when I met with a specialist. You should have sex on the 9th day, so, start counting from when you begin bleeding. Have sex every day and a half from day nine to day 14. So on the 9th day you have sex in the a.m., then skip a day, the following day have sex in the p.m. This way you have sex every 36 hours, which is the appropriate amount of time for sperm to regenerate. I hope that all made sense to you. I am ttc right now too. Good Luck!

Awe, good luck! How long have you been trying?
So my question is like in my op my first two days it's extreme spotting of just brown blood so would I count that? Or should I start when I actually started bleeding?
