Basal Body Temp: Basal body temperature (bbt) with a special thermometer works, but the temperature rises after you ovulate. You test before you move out of bed each morning. Ovulation predictor kits are more useful when ttc as they go positive 1-1.5 days before you ovulate, so you know your most fertile days. If you have very irregular periods don't do bbt, see a fertility md to find out why you're irregular.

About the 5th: Most over the counter pregnancy tests can detect a pregnancy by 7 days after conception. Assuming you conceived on or about the 27th, you may find a positive test by about the 5th of this month.

Why?: I would go with an ovulation predictor kit; usually about 14 days from the first day of the last period is when you ovulate. I'm not sure of a specific calendar dedicated to ovulation. Good luck.
