I'm having a hard time figuring out when I ovulated. Last period started june 18th and my cycles are 29 days long. Help?

Math: If your cycles are regular, then subtract 14 from the number of days in your cycle to get the day you are likely to ovulate. So for you that would be around day 15. The luteal phase remains pretty constant for most people at around 14 days in length. ...Read more

Menstrual Cycle (Definition)

The menstrual cycle begins with the shedding of the uterine lining, resulting in bleeding from the vagina. A few weeks later, one ovary releases an egg and the uterine lining thickens in preparation for a potential pregnancy. Pregnancy can occur at this stage if sperm fertilizes the egg. If the egg is not fertilized, the egg will leave your body and ...Read more

Day #1 is first day: When measuring cycle length, the first day is always day #1. Your cycle length goes from day #1 of one cycle to the day #1 of the following cycle. The time between 3/31 to 5/2 is a 32-day cycle. If your cycle is irregular, the day of ovulation is difficult to know. Average would be day # 18 for a 32-day cycle. Try an ovulation predictor kit. ...Read more

14 days before: Ovulation occurs 14 days before the next menstrual cycle. This is the best time to have intercourse. The first part of the cycle varies but ovulation is pretty consistent at 14 days before. ...Read more

When would I be ovulating if my periods are usually 1 week-long and at the beginning of each month? My last period was July 4th-11th. My fertile days?

14 days: You usually ovulate around the 14 th day before you start your period. Thus, if your periods are 28 days apart, it would be day 14. If they are 29 days then day 15 from the first day you bleed. If 30 days apart then day 16. This is the approximate time and can vary by a day. So you need to determine how many days between in order to determine the day. Ovulation test kits can help ...Read more

Is ovulation 14 days before your next period or 14 days after your last period? Some websites are saying eithee or.

Ovulation: It is not that simple. Some people believe that women cannot figure this out on their own so they use these dates that are not accurate to the individual. Ovulation is the release of the readied egg from the ovary. Many women learn to feel this brief 'pain' as a guide. Others follow their basal body temperature. And others purchase ovulation prediction kits. It is usually just shy of half-way. ...Read more

Is it possible to have a period a week after your last period ended when I have ALWAYS had regular periods? If so will it throw off my ovulation?

Already off: Most women will occasionally have some menstrual irregularity. It may be stress or maybe something else. Since it's ovulation that controls the periods, I suspect that your ovulation got thrown off, and that's why you're having the bleeding. I would give it some time to see whether your periods become regular again. ...Read more

Basal body temp: Some women feel ovulation as a one sided lower abdominal pain that can be a slight twinge or occasionally a more serious pain with tenderness that lasts 1-2 days. The traditional method to assess ovulation is to take your "basal body" temperature on awakening each morning — a slight rise in the BBT signals ovulation. Temperature is most reliable if you use a rectal thermometer. ...Read more

Last period October 13th, average cycle length is 20 days. When do/did I most likely ovulate?

20 days?: The normal cycle length is 21-42 days and is counted from the first day of one period to the day before your next period starts so 20 days is abnormal if you are counting right. You usually ovulate 14 days before your next period starts. Since your next period should start 11/2 and you would have ovulated 10/19. Hope that helps. ...Read more

For a 30-day cycle, ovulation is about 2 days later, on day 16 (see the pattern?). Life is not exact, so all dates are estimates. ...Read more
