In brief: Myth

That is an old myth.
You should use an ovulation calculator which can help.

In brief: No, it's not true

Simple answer, right? But no, such things don't matter. What does matter is to have intercourse 2-3 times a week, esp at about 14 days before your next expected menses.
Don't waste your money on ovulation predictors either. But do take a Folic Acid supplement and avoid alcohol and tobacco. If you smoke, quit now!
