Pregnancy test: The benefit of menstrual cycle is also to help estimate the ovulation date. If a female have 26 days menstrual cycle and if 14days is subtracted, one will get day 12 which will represent the ovulation date. Most female can conceive 2days before and after the ovulation date. Conception usually occurs within 24 hours after ovulation. In your case, you can check blood pregnancy test after 7days.
