In brief: Sex on fertile days

With a 28-day cycle, ovulation happens around day 14.
That is day 14 counting from the beginning of a period (the first day of bleeding is day 1). That is also known as 14 days after LMP, which means last menstrual period. If wanting a baby, start having sex twice a day on day 11, for a full 6 days... and enjoy those days, without thinking about pregnancy, babies, or anything related to cycles.
