I use the ovulating calendar and calculator and my menstrual Calendar and they all say 11/5-11/10 and my ovulating date is 11/8 is it correct?

I use the ovulating calendar and calculator and my menstrual Calendar and they all say 11/5-11/10 and my ovulating date is 11/8 is it correct?

An approximation: That date is only an approximation. Actual ovulation could happen any time during your fertile window. If you want to be more precise, you should buy an ovulation predictor kit at the drug-store. You can check each morning of your fertile window to see if you are likely to ovulate in the next 12-24 hours. Ideally, if you want conception, you should have intercourse BEFORE you ovulate. ...Read more

Is there such thing as a reverse due date calculator?

Sort of: If your due date is based off of an ultrasound, you could then see when you most likely had your menses and when you conceived. Is that what you mean?

How to know when I am ovulating using online calculator?

Not accurate: Online calculators make lots of assumption. First they assume that you ovulate, which is not the case for all women. Then they either assume that your periods are exactly 28 days apart or that you ovulate exactly 14 days before your next period. A better way is to use over the counter ovulation prediction kits which will help you know when exactly you are ovulating and time intercourse ...Read more

What is the difference in GFR calculators? Some tell me my egfr is 59 and some tell me its 62?

Difference in GFR: The answer to you question is that the GFR calculators give an estimated, not an actual, gfr. The calculation used to estimate the GFR is based on a person's age, sex, race, height and weight. The difference in your estimated GFR levels is about 5%, perhaps your weight was different. The only way to know what your real GFR is is to have a doctor order a 24 hour urine for creatinine clearance. ...Read more

I have two ovulation-calculator apps, it said. Different answers. One it said last week on 4/15 and the other one it said today 4/20. Confusing, help?

I have two ovulation-calculator apps, it said. Different answers. One it said last week on 4/15 and the other one it said today 4/20. Confusing, help?

Dates: On a normal cycle your ovulation is 14 days before your next period. But since you can't foretell the future, this is of little help. You might have 11-17 days from the beginning of your period until ovulation. After ovulation it is always 14 days to your period. The apps have to assume a 25 day cycle or a 28 day or a 31 day cycle - thus the difference. ...Read more

LP was dec30-jan13. Dd nov6. Conception calculator says feb7-13 was sex leading to conception. Not possible. Just curious if u/s can be off a few days?

Yes it can: When (date) and "how far along were you" (gestational age) when the US for dating was done? Ultrasounds in the second trimester can be off by as much as a week in either direction, third trimester US can be off by even more. First trimester (1st twelve weeks) should be correct +/- 3 days, I hope this helps. ...Read more

For what reasons was the BMI calculator even invented?

For studies: In order to study obesity, one has to have a definition of what it means to be obese. You can't simply use weight, as 200 lb might be obese for some people but would be a thin person if their height was 6 ft 8 in. Bmi takes into account height and weight. A bmi over 30 is considered obese. ...Read more
