Hey there- well typically ovulation does occur 14 days before your period starts. But for a lot of women, that's not the case. Some women have what they call a luteal phase defect...I am one. I ovulate on day 18-20 of a 28 day cycle. It has been the cause of two miscarriages for me. One way of helping maintain a new pregnancy or help with ovulation is using progesterone suppositories...which I've been on for quite some time. I use an ovulation predictor kit (which is just like a home prengancy test)....then once I get my positive, I start the progesterone 2 days later..to ensure ovulation before starting. I am now 12 weeks pregnant, and continuing them. Hope this helps.

Hi Guest! - January 9

Have you looked into the Clearblue Fertility Monitor? They have a website and it might be able to help you to really pinpoint your peak days. Good luck.

If I were you, I would get opk strips from www.early-pregnancy-tests.com. You can get a bulk amount (like 25 or 50) and they are pretty cheap. Then use them every day from about cd10 until you get a positive. Then you will know when you are ovulating and you will know around what day you ovulate for future months. They worked for me since my cycles were really irregular, ranging from 23 days to 33 days...try pinpointing ovulation when your cycles changes drastically every month! Hope this helps!
