In brief: 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.
