Not enough info: Cramping can be associated with implantation, so this could be a normal finding in a very early pregnancy. It also can be associated with your oncoming period. Wait and see what happens over the next few days/weeks. ...Read more

I hav unprotected sex durin sum fertile days&was ovulating on the17according 2my calendar.Have been cramping a little all week&bloatd what's that mean?

Math: A woman is fertile for a 24 hour period during her cycle. In a 28 day cycle this is on day 14. In a 30 cycle it's day 30 - 14 = 16. Cramping and bloating happens to a lot of women without meaning anything, it does happen though during pregnancy as well. Home pregnancy tests become positive the earliest a week after conception, the latest by the time a menstrual period should come around. ...Read more

I had sex April 30, the day my period ended. According to my calendar I entered my fertile window may 2 and ovulate may 8. Is conception likely?

I had sex April 30, the day my period ended. According to my calendar I entered my fertile window may 2 and ovulate may 8. Is conception likely?

No: If you do not ovulate within about 6 days of having unprotected sex, you have essentially no chance of conceiving. Having sex one time, 6 days before ovulation gives about a 3 out of 1000 chance of conception. ...Read more

If one has a normal 28 day cycle, and ovulates regularly, what would be the fertile days?

If one has a normal 28 day cycle, and ovulates regularly, what would be the fertile days?

Midcycle: Ovulation will probably occur either on day 13, 14, or 15. I would suggest intercourse starting either on 12, 14, 16, 18 or 11, 13, 15, and 17. This regiment will ensure that sperm is in the reproductive track around the time of ovulation. ...Read more

Husband&i ttc.Chart says fertile days were 10-11/17, ovulation on 10-16.Tried on 11, 13&20.Would the 20th even count or was that a waste?Chance of bfp

Ovulation: Regardless of what you read on a chart or app, the only time conception can happen is around ovulation. Typically ovulation occurs 14 days before the next period. The range is the result of variability in the time of ovulation and the fact that the sperm can survive in the cervical mucus for up to 3 days. It is quite unlikely that you will ovulate that late but not impossible. ...Read more

What is the difference between ovulation and fertile days?

Very little.: I suppose, technically speaking, ovulation is a single even that happens when the egg is released from the ovary. Then, you have about 5 days that follow after ovulation when you are most fertile. If you have a period cycle of about 28 days, ovulation is usually around day 14. Making days 14 - 20 your "fertile days." this is important if you are trying to conceive. ...Read more

I had three +ovulation predictors on cd15/16/17 then a - on cd18. Suppose to predict 4 most fertile days. Does the - mean i've already ovulated?

I had three +ovulation predictors on cd15/16/17 then a - on cd18. Suppose to predict 4 most fertile days. Does the - mean i've already ovulated?

Probably: This doesn't sound abnormal - or worrisome - to me. The idea of "4 fertile days" is not really biologically correct; the opk are somewhat misleading in that they have "dumbed down" the fertility concept. If you had 3 + in a row, then a - sounds like your ovulation happened and was detected. ...Read more

Why does the clear blue ovulation predictor sticks only show me ovulating one day of the month when it says it will show u the 2 most fertile days?

Often positive 1 day: Ovulation predictors show the hormone surge in the urine that triggers ovulation and that surge lasts less than a day. When the predictor turns positive a woman will ovulate in 12-30 hours. So have sex that day and the next day. Those are the 2 most fertile days. You don't need to check a predictor any more that cycle once it turns positive. Hope this helps! ...Read more

My fertile days was supposed to between 7/3/2014 to 7/8/2014, but I check it with a digital ovulation predictor and till today 7/8 still negative,?

Wait it out: Although I don't know how this particular predictor is supposed to work, I don't place a great deal of faith in ANY method of ovulation prediction. Ovulation predictably occurs about 14 days before your period, so once your period comes you can look back and figure out ovulation. You will then have a better idea if your digital predictor is of much use. ...Read more

I'm ttc  my cycle is 31days. When am i likely to ovulate? And what are my most fertile days?

Ovulation timing: The optimal time for conception is 48 hours prior to and up to the day of ovulation. Therefore, start having intercourse a couple of days prior to when you actually ovulate and have intercourse every other day for a total of five times to help ensure sperm are there when you ovulate. ...Read more

My fertile days are between Sunday, Jul-12-2015 and Friday, Jul-17-2015 i started ovulating on Wednesday I had sex that night what are the changes?

Definitely possible: Unprotected intercourse in the middle of your most fertile time certainly gives you a good chance of pregnancy if all else is normal. If your period is late or abnormal, do a pregnancy test and repeat it in 3-5 days. Overall, fecundity (the chance of getting pregnant in any given cycle) is 20-25% for women under the age of 30 and slowly declines there after. ...Read more

I am trying to conceive for more then a year. Can i exercise during my fertile days or on my ovulation day?

Seek REI care!: Seek care with a reputable reproductive endocrinologist infertility specialist in your area. They can answer your questions about periconceptional exercise in detail. I would recommend you take Folic Acid 1-5 mg daily, avoid strenuous exercise (no competitive/professional/contact sports) but you may exercise moderately with treadmill, stationary bike, swimming, or brisk walking. ...Read more

Fertility Diet: No studies on your diet that I am aware of but we do know that a low glycemic index diet is associated with fertility. This is a healthy diet full of vegetables, fruits, whole grains that avoids sugars and non-whole grain carbohydrates (like white rice, white bread and white pasta). Check out the fertility diet by harvard docs chavarro, wilett and others for an easy to read guide. Good luck! ...Read more

) does Plan B work during the whole cycle including ovulation or most fertile days after taking it 24 hours later after unprotected sex?

Yes: Plan b works at any point in the cycle. Plan b prevents ovulation, so of course, if you've already ovulated, it won't affect course of cycle. Best is to take it immediately after unprotected sex as it has the highest effectivness then. ...Read more
