See below: Calculate your cycle length (first day of one period to the first day of the next) and subtract 14 days. That is when you will ovulate. You can conceive for up to 5 days before ovulation and for 24 hours after ovulation so try to have sex a couple times within that time frame.For more info: www.AskYourGynecologist.org

Now or wait a week: Not sure how you determined that you ovulated on day 26, but presuming you did, you would expect to get a period around day 40 if you were not pregnant. you can check a pregnancy test now if anxious or wait a week. For more info: www.AskYourGynecologist.org

Yes: You can use both together since they work by different mechanisms,although that would be rather unorthodox. Usually it is one or the other. For more info: www.AskYourGynecologist.org
