Re: ovulation question

When was your last period?
Do you mean your fertile days were the 15th through the 20th, and you O'd on the 20th? It is possible to get preg. after you ovulate. I have read that the egg stays in the tubes for about 24 to 48 hours..I think.
So how do you know when you O'd?

Re: ovulation question

my last period was on november 4th. i'm not sure i ovulated...i just figured out going by the day of my last period i would ovulate between the 15-20, of my 28 day cycle. i'm not really sure...like i said i'm not tracking it this month b/c its my husband and i's first time trying since i got off the pill. so what do u think? oh and we had sex on the 21st is what i meant...then i thought about it and saw i might had just missed ovulation by a day or so. my next period is due on dec. 2nd

Re: ovulation question

Well heres the thing, everyone's ovulation day is at a different time. You could be an early ovulator (12 to 14 days after period) or a late ovulator (16-20) or somewhere in between. Really the ways you can find out is get an O predictor, take your temps, or watch out for your cervical mucus (or all three!). I take my temps and post them on a chart, I also watch for my cervical mucus. For example this month I had egg white CM the day before my temp rise (your temp rises the day after your egg is released). So I knew I had O'd on the day that I had the EWCM. I had started BD before then though, I O'd on CD16, I started BD on CD10-18 (I skipped a one day or so in between). I started at that time because I remember cycles before.
So you remember any EWCM?
Also, anything can effect your O, last month I had severe allergies and I was taking medicine for it that pushed my O to CD20 and I NEVER had any EWCM, three months ago I had a miscarriage, that screwed my cycles up. So this month for me is the first normal once since I got preg. the first time.
So if you dont get preg. this time you should start charting. Even if you dont want to take your temps, you can still chart when you BD or your CM.
Also I have been taking a prenatal vitamin since May and I dont take ANY medicine unless I absolutely have to (like last month), dont drink coffee, eat healthy, exercise...etc..it really is a big pain! But hopefully it will be worth it...
