not lucky... - August 30

I am wanting to know how to figure out how long my cycle is. I always start on the 7th of the month and I am unsure how to figure out when I am ovulating along with my cycle span. Thanks to anyone that posts......

It is my understanding that you ovulate around the 14th day after your cycle begins. Therefore, you should have intercouse 24-48 hours after you ovulate. You can also take your temperature. You temperature should be at or above 98% during your entire cycle. After it will be below 98% and will raise slightly on the day you are ovulating. Sometimes you have to take your temperature for a couple of months to get a feel for how your body temperature measures. This is how I got pregnant!

I am aware that ovulation is the 14th day, but my misunderstanding comes in when it comes to cycle days. Some females have 28 day cycles and others are different. How is this determined? Thank you for your post!

It is determined by each females body-hormone levels. I would suggest checking back in your records to see if your cycle has always been 28 days between periods. If so, then it is safe to say you are on a 28 day cycle. Mine is also 28 days and always has been. My sister's has always been 31 days.

Sorry, I meant to add. 28 days is the number of days between the date your last period stopped and the date your next period began. Example, you started on July 7th and your period last for 5 days and your next period started on August 7th then you are a 27 day cycle. Hope that makes sense.

Make note of how many days pa__s between the first day of your period to the first day of your next period. It's best to do this more than once as length varies by maybe 1 or 2 days. This will determine your average cycle length.

i have only a 23 day cycle, my Dr said ovulation is anywhere between 11-14 days after u begin your period. good luck!

So you count your cycle from 1st day to 1st day. Ovulation is 12-14 days after the 1st or the last day of your period>>>><

it is12-14 days after the 1st day of your period. IE: if you get your period on 9/1 you will ovulate bet 9/12-9/14

BruceN you are so rude per your last comment. If you don't want to address the question or provide a__sistance in a polite way you should not even bother posting. You are just trying to act like a know it all.

not lucky your last comment was pretty accurrate.

http://www.4woman.gov/Pregnancy/ovulation1.cfm lets you enter dates and cycle length to calculate ovulation. Note that ovulation is 14 to 16 days BEFORE the next menstruation. If you can't predict when you are going to menstruate, then you will have to use another method.
