Elizabeth - September 1

Hi, For the last 6 months I ahve always gotten my period on the 14th. This month It came on the 10th? Which day should I count as the 1st day to predict ovulation? The 10th or the 14th? I had s_x o the 27Th! What are my chances of getting pregnant from the 27th? Thanks and may God bless you all.

If you are trying to get pregnant you should be having s_x every other day. That is what I did and I got pregnant in less than a month! I could never predict my ovulation day. You can ovulate anywhere from 10 - 14 days from your last period. I don't know what your usual cycle is, but if you have a regular 28 day cycle and your period came on the 10th then you probably would have ovulated around the 24th. The thing is that the sperm has to be ready when the egg drops so it is best to have s_x every other day so that the sperm is there when the egg is ready. (Sperm can live in you for up to 5 days.) If you ovulated later than you might have ovulated around the 28th and then having s_x on the 27th would have been a good idea for getting pregnant. I don't know what to tell you since I am not sure what your cycle is. All I can say is, if you did not get pregnant this month, start bd'd every other day.

Hi, Thanks for your response. My cycle is usually 31 days. I guess where I am confused is how many days are in your fertile window? i a__sume it starts on the 17th day of my cycle since I have a 31 day cycle, am I correct? Thanks again and Gob bless.

yes, it would be about half way through but you only ovulate once (when egg is released) so best to have sperm ready or that day. Every month, a typical woman has about a 30% to get pregnant. It is actually much harder than people think which is why you have to find ovulation day perfectly. There are ways to do this: charting your temp., checking for cervical mucous. The book which I recommend is "Taking charge of your fertility" by Toni Weschler. Good luck this month...I hope sperm met egg!
