Ovulation Calculator 3 Cycles

Nancy asks…


my last period should have come on the 26th, but came on 29th (not sure yet as to why) so 3 days late.
i know that if i started my period on the 29th- i would have ovulated and been at my highest point of fertily on the 12th .
BUT because i was 3 days late does that mean i would have actually ovulated 3 days before the 12th. which would have been right if i had started when i was supposed to.
does ovulation always occur when it is supposed to even if our last period was late??

should i have actually ovulated on the 12th- or the 9th??

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

It depends how long your cycle is… Sometimes it does fairy and have a few days off.. You should try joining a site like


each period you put the day you came on into the calculator and then it after a few cycles will tell you when your ovulating and when your at your peak of ovulation…

It’s also a good way to know how many days your cycle are which will help once you get pregnant to know how far pregnant you are. And has baby names on it for your region and with all the meanings…

Good luck and baby dust x

Ovulation Question…………………?

My husband and I are TTC. I use mymonthcycles.com to help track my cycles but I still pay attention to my body. Well my last period was April 4th, the last 2 months I have had a 30 day cycle so on a 30 day cycle when should I ovulate. That site uses the average and about 4 months ago I had a 40 day cycle so I think my ovulation on there is wrong. It says the 24th but I think I should be ovulating around the 20th. I plan on BDing every 2-3 day from now until expected AF time anyway I am just curious as to when I should ovulate. Thanks
Thank you… I did that and it said I would ovulate on the 20th like I expected.

I also use mmc website.click on Ovulation Calculator. And change Your average menstrual cycle length to 30days. Leave everything the same and it will tell ur ov day

Ovulation. Little help???

Last month I had my period on the 18th (MARCH) and this month it came on 17 (APRIL) yesterday… My cycles length are 31 days, Im not sure when ill ovulate, because all those internet calculator tell me diferent days, based on their answer when my period ends, it will be between april 24 and march 10, that’s crazy. Any advice? Im trying to get pregnant for 7 months now!

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

No one can tell you when you are going to ovulate. They would only be guessing and that goes for ovulation calendars as well. It is a myth that ovulation occurs on a certain day in a woman’s cycle. Even if two women have the same cycle length, they could be ovulating on different days. The day of ovulation can change each cycle. Anything can affect ovulation: stress, illness, travel, holidays, exercise, anything different. If you want to know when you ovulate and when you are in your fertile phase, you need to observe and learn about your body. Women generally ovulate 10 to 16 days prior to the day their period arrives. It is different for each woman.

In order to get pregnant you need fertile cervical fluid/mucus. The cervical mucus consistency varies through a woman’s cycle. The consistency of your cervical mucus changes during the cycle due to hormonal fluctuations. You are considered most fertile when the mucus becomes clear, slippery, and stretchy. Many women compare mucus at this stage to raw egg whites. The amount of this thin mucus will steadily increase until you experience your ‘mucus peak’. This is the last day of this phase where the chance of conception is high. It is closely tied to ovulation. During this phase, the sperm’s survival rate is higher. Here is some information of cervical mucus.

Stages of Cervical Fluid: Post Menses
Stage 1: Lasting 2 – 3 days CM is Sticky or Gummy
Stage 2: Lasting 2- 4 days: CM is Creamy, Milky, Lotion Like – Beginning of your fertile period
Stage 3: Lasting 1-5 days: Egg white Cervical Fluid – At this time you are very fertile.
Stage 4: Dry, Moist or Sticky (Infertile)

Here is a more detailed description:

The only day you get can pregnant is when you ovulate. The day you ovulate, your body releases the egg. The egg lives a maxium of 24 hours. However, sperm can live up to five days in fertile cervical mucus but most live three days. Your fertile phase are the 3-4 days prior to ovulation and the day of ovulation. In order to maximize your chances of getting pregnant, you would have sex every 24 hours during this time. Unless you think your partner has low sperm count, then you would have sex every other day during your fertile phase.

In order to know when you ovulate and when you are in your fertile phase, chart your waking temperature and observe your cervical mucus.

Read the book: Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Toni Weschler. The book explains your cycle, charting and how to get pregnant. It is a great book and a must read! Check out the website: http://www.fertilityfriend.com/ Buy a basal thermometer at the drug store. Start charting your waking temperature so that you can get an accurate picture of what is happening in your cycles. This information can aid you in having sex at the correct time.

Since you have already been trying for 7 months, I highly suggest you start charting your waking temperature. There is a 25% chance that you will conceive each cycle. It is considered normal for a healthy couple under 30 to take up to one year to conceive. After one year, your doctor should start investigating if there is a problem. If you are in your 30′s, your OBGYN will start testing after 6 months.

Some other tips:
-When having baby sex, do not use lube (KY Jelly, astroglide, etc) it renders sperm immobile. If you want to use lube, use preseed. Preseed promotes a sperm friendly atmosphere. Http://www.preseed.com/
-Do not douche or use scented tampons. They alter the acidity of the vagina.
-Do not have oral sex when you are having baby sex. Saliva can kill sperm.
-Have sex in the missionary position. This allows for the deepest penetration and will deposit the sperm closest to the cervix.
-After sex, stay laying down with your pelvis slightly elevated/tilted for 15 minutes.

Fertile cervical mucus is very important. If you do not think you are getting a lot of fertile cervical mucus you can try the following:
-Cut back on caffeine
-Do not smoke
-Drink at least ten 6oz glasses of water a day.
-Take Evening Primrose Oil: 1,500 to 3000mg per day should be taken from Cycle Day 1 to Ovulation. This is because Evening Primrose Oil or EPO can cause uterine contractions in pregnancy. Like all herbs, the use of Evening Primrose Oil or EPO can take a month or two to build up, and produce the results you are looking for. The take Flax Seed Oil: 2,000 mg per day from Ovulation to AF.
-Use preseed. Read about it here: http://www.preseed.com/
-Take guaifenesin. Read this: http://www.fertilityplus.org/faq/cm.html

Good luck!

ovulation confusion!!!!?!?

cycle is normally 30 days. i get my period every month around the 16th! sooooo i peed on an ovulation test today and i had two solid lines, later today i peed on it again and then i only had one line! i am confused here. if i have a 30 day cycle i should ovulate between the 27th thru 4th..correct?? just a guestimate. i do not understand this ovulation things apparently

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

I will try not to confuse you further…Just because we have a 30 day cycle doesn’t mean that we ovulate at a certain time…In fact I just used a online ovulation calculator that said with a 30 cycle you should ovulated between March 1-6, with your most fertile day March 4th. So the estimates are just that. Guesstimates…I would buy the ovulation test strips..20 come in a container…I started 5 days after my period started and tested 20 days….for 3 months before I figured it out…I ovulated between day 6-10 of my 28 day cycle…That is until this pregnancy…I became pregnant on day 33…totally skipped a period and got pregnant while I should have been on my period…WEIRD…So it’s not you who doesn’t understand…It’s our bodies that do whatever they want…Best of luck

ovulation question, wanting to get pregnant?

Okay this is hard to explain but in december i missed my period and thought i was pregnant, but then on january 3rd i had dark brown and thick discharge and looked bloody as the days went on it lasted 3-5 days wasnt to heavy enough for a panty liner, i have 28 day cycles, but then on january 13th it happend again.. lasted about the same but with more bloody look to it. I did an ovulation calculater and i put in the period from the 3rd would that period count or would the one from the 13tg because the ovulation calculator said i ovulated on the 17 And i hope that is right because i had sex (trying) the day before..

Pregnancy Advisor’s answers:

Ovulation calculators don’t work sometimes because you can ovulate earlier or later than what it says. The best thing to do is have sex every other day or every three days after your period ends. Also since you had two periods your ovulation can be all messed up since they were so close. You may or may not have ovulated in between those days.
