In brief: Usually midcycle
Ovulation is about 14 days before menses but varies.
Have doc get cycle history and choose a day before predicted ovulation then other scans as needed for timing. Can use opk and call doc for scan to confirm. If meds, then scan after a few days of treatment. Review with doc. Best wishes.

In brief: Depends on
There's not 1 best day, it depends what you're trying to learn.
If ttc what plan you are on: natural or stimulated cycle (they're different?) if monitoring leading up to ovulation then 1-2 days before anticipated works, if monitoring to confirm ovulation then 3 days afterward is better. Best time to check for 'abnormal' cysts is usually cd 3-5. Stimulated cycles need to be monitored more often.
