good luck to you we are on our 2nd month ttc i have a 30 day cycle and i always check w/ an ovulation stick b/c all cycles differ as a matter of fact this month i did not ovulate until day 22-23 and if i did not have the stick i would not have know i ovulated late. now my period is due the 25th (not sure if late ovulation will effect it ) playing the waiting game. good luck to you

Melani- I also have a 30 to 31 day cycle. I ovulate around day 16. A good estimate is to count 14 days backwards from when your next cycle is to start. I have been using the cbe fertility monitor. According to it I hit my LH surge on day 15 which is 24-36 hours before you ovulate. You may want to start checking your cm daily starting around day 12. When you notice egg white like material do the bd every day until you ovulate, unless your dh has low sperm count then do the bd everyother day. Good luck.

Thanks a lot girls...Kc i would like to ask you if your ovulation days is the same every month...


kc - June 24

Melani - I am very regular, so I hit my LH surge on day 15 or 16 so I ovulate on day 16 or 17. Most months day 16. I have been charting my temps, cm, cp and lh surges for over a year now. I recently had a mc on April 23 and my first af arrived 26 days post mc, which was odd for me. The second arrived at 30 days so I hope I'm back on schedule. I'm shooting for July 1 as the start of my horrible 2ww.

WRONG! I am a nurse and I work in a OB/GYN clinic. And you ovulate 14 days before you begin your period. You ovulate when LH surges (Lutinizing hormone) wich causes the release of the egg which has been ripening with the aid of the FSH (follicle stimulating hormone.) After the surge in LH estrogen and progesterone progressively decline and that is when you start your period if you are not pregnant.
So if you have a 30 day cycle you would ovulate 30 minus 14 days so on day 16 NOT day 14.

a - That is exactly what I said. Count BACKWARDS 14 days from when your next cycle is to start. Not count 14 days from the beginning of the last. I was told by my doctor you ovulate 24 to 36 hours after the LH surge. Maybe he was wrong. I don't know but that is what I was told.

to a. If you are "normal" you are supposed to ov 14 days before mens. but not everyone does. if you have a short Luteal Phase this means the time between ov and mens is less than 14 days. If you chart BBT and you get a .4 - .5 increase you probably ov the day before. I have a 28-30 day cycle, chart BBT, CM, and use opt each month and always ov 12 days before mens. Not everyone is the same. That is why they sell so many Ov predictor tests.

I have a 30 day cycle and I am on Ovulex (because of prior problems ovulating). I used the Ovulation strip yesterday...nothing. Well, this afternoon I tested again and I got a positive. Today markes 14 days before my AF. I will skip sex today (since we had it yesterday and day before) and get busy tomorrow. lol! Wish me luck!
*baby dust*
