Hard to say: Ovulation can be somewhat irregular in the first several months after menarche and may remain so for a year. However, it can occur as the body prepares for menarche, leading to pregnancy (if exposed) prior to menarche. My first delivery in training was a 13 yo who had never had a period. ...Read more
Use an OPK kit: If you have regular cycles use an ovulation predictor kit (opk) - test between 10 am and noon, starting on day 10 of your cycle. The first morning urine is not accurate.

Ovulatipn: I think anything is possible, just about. It would mean that the "looking face" is extremely short and she is making very little or no progesterone.

What are some way to better my chances to conceive a girl if my ovulation dates have recently been 4 later than I expect it?
Same way every time: Urban myth may have you believe you can pre-select your offspring but that is bogus. If you go the test tube baby route you might be able to pretest an embryo & have it implanted, but that is tedious & expensive. You get pregnant & get whatever the successful sperm has made.

Ovulation: The best time to get pregnant is around ovulation time. For a 28 day cycle female, that is the 14th day of your cycle. There are ovulation kits that may better predict your specific ovulation day according to your cycle. The chances are highest for pregnancy if you have intercourse 1-2 days prior to ovulation day. If tests are negative and you are having periods, you are not pregnant yet! ...Read more
50% chance of a girl: The chance of a boy or a girl is very close to 50/50. It's the sperm that fertilizes the egg that determines the sex of your baby - a sperm with an x chromosome results in a girl, and a sperm with a y chromosome results in a boy. Timing intercourse in relation to ovulation has no effect on your chances, but there are no shortage of people or websites who say 'it worked for them'. ...Read more

Having sex 3-4 days before ovulation can help you have a girl. Can I still take an ovulation test 4 days after to make sure I ovulated?
No: Time of intercourse does not determine the gender of your child. Ovulation predictors should be done during your mid cycle. It is a myth regarding timing and gender. Your partners sperm determines your gender. Sperm with y chromosome and sperm with x chromosome swim at same rates and speed. ...Read more
