I'm going to assume ovulate. In general, it's about 14 days before your period. If you chart your temperatures you can get a rough idea as to when it is due to progesterone levels increasing, this also creates a thermal shift. If your period is always regular like clockwork you could assume that it's approximately 14 days before your next expected period.. so, a cycle of 28 days, period on cycle day 14.. 29 days, period on cycle day 15.. etc.. hopefully this helps. I recommend getting the book taking charge of your fertility though, very helpful!
hi, yes i know all that , what i am wondering about is when you ovulate is the egg released then or 12 to 24 hours later? see i''ll tell you what i am experiencing, ok i work 3rd shift.( and my last lmp is nov. 7th 2008 at 7pm) so wednesday the 19th of november morning at 1:30am i go to the bathroom before i take my break what i think is spotting , brownish color(small not alot). so ok then 5am in the morning i went to the bathroom and saw cm very thick strechy. ok went home at 8am took ovulation test no surge. had sex about 10am ok laid in bed about 30min, went to sleep. got up around 7pm . made something to eat took ovualtion test at 10pm as i am getting ready to go to work, it seems to be a little surge cant really tell .so ok go to work now it is the 20th of nov. thursday morning same thing but today i had cramping on my right side low like as i was getting my period my different. so went to the bathroom lots of cm. ok same thing later on that morning. so 8am left work went home , took ovluation test LH surge i think is was the same color line. had sex around 10am laid there about 30min went to sleep got up around 7pm ate something got ready for work around 10pm took test now both lines are darker. LH surge . so my question is when does the egg release out in the overy onto the fallionpen tube to get feritlized, in my case? now a little back ground on me, i had found out i was prego on july 4th 2008, had to have a d&e on sept.13th2008 i was 14 weeks then. the baby did not develope no bottom half it was only a mass dont know why.they did a gene test its not genetic. they told me it was a rare case. i was so mad and still mad because i dont have a reason. so now we are trying again.i have read everthing i could get my hands on. even everything on the internet. o and the most imporant thing i have been taking prenatial vitamins that i got from my obgyn.(specialist) i have not stop taking them. and also i have not smoked cigg sence july. i have quit. so thank you for listening.
