An Interesting O Statistic

I recently read that 70% of women ovulate either before CD14 or after CD17... have any of you ladies who chart find this to be true? I just thought it was interesting.

Interesting! I've always been a cd9-10er. Hm.

I do not know when I ovulate, but I would also like to know if this is true for the women who chart.

hey tracie, I found this to be true when i was temping and charting. I consistently ovulated between cd 19-26. The month I got PG I ovulated cd 26--if I wasn't charting and just going by cd 14 wisdom, I would have missed it!

O.K. so for the ladies that O late do you also have longer cycles? or shorter for those that O early? Or is there truly no connection to the 14days-b4-period thing.

From what I've learned here watching charts and reading, it seems that if someone knows when they ovulate by charting that the luteal phase (second half of the cycle) doesn't vary much between 10-16 days. If you pinpoint ovulation and then AF doesn't show by 18 that is why FF usually says you are "probably " pregnant and to test. If you are not pregnant and absolutely positive you O'd then it may be time to see a dr. because something else could be going on with cysts, etc. The first half of the cycle though can be as long as it wants to be though...lol! :-)

The later you ovulate the longer your cycle should be. The average lutel phase is 10-18 days, most being closer to 14 days. The luteal phase is the time between ovulation and when your next period starts. So, depending on when you O, determines how long your cycle will be. Like with me, I would O anywhere from cd21-cd30 and then I ALWAYS had a 14 day luteal phase, so my af would come on 15dpo. Ovualtion day can vary, luteal phase does not. Hope this helps a little! : )

Sorry Stefkay, we must have been typing at the same time!

Yes it does help. So i guess if you function normally then you could have a general idea of when you O (if in fact you do O) if AF comes at the same exact CD every month (not the case with me). i thought so but i just wanted to clarify that it wasn't a COMPLETE myth. Thanx.

very interesting.. thanks for the info. i guess it's not rocket science, but for someone like me who is not currently charting, i really don't know when i will be ovulating! I always heard about day 14.. like that was the magic number to get pregnant, but it obviously isn't! i always had 28 day cycles, to the hour! but that was when i was on bcp.. so now that i'm off i really have no idea what to expect. Af came after the first month off bcp, but it was a 32 day cycle... but i think it could be because my body was/is still adjusting itself. i'm hoping to get pregnant this month!!

hey tracilee, I was bc for 12 years and had 28 cycles---that's b/c of the bc horomones. Once your off and your body starts regulating it's own hormones then you'll see your "real" cycles. For me that took about 3 months. I strongly suggest you chart and temp and/or use an OPK. That's the only way you'll be sure of O!

 

ginger6363 - March 14

on bc for 12 years...28 day cycles...sorry, typing too fast!

 

tracielee - March 14

thanks, it's just that i'm living in s.america in a city where they don't sell OPK's.. nor have i even seen a bbt thermometer for sale! I'm just gonna hope that it'll happen naturally

 

tracielee - March 14

i've only been on bcp for a year and a half.. before that i had real regular cycles, something like 28-30 days in length.. i'm hoping i'll just go back to that!
