Anon, here's a great calculator -- it's a pregnancy calculator but it allows you to put in the first day of your last period and the number of days of your cycle, and it tells you your most fertile days and your most likely day of conception:

http://www.americanpregnancy.org/duringpregnancy/pregcalc.html

check it out; it's a pretty cool thing.

Here's the way days are counted:

First day of your period: Day 1 of your cycle
Middle of your cycle -- usually between days 10 and 14 of your cycle if your cycle is 28 days long
Last day before new period: Last day of old cycle

First day of next period: Day 1 again.

Is this all helpful to you?

Hi Susan

To be more accurate which day should I start trying to have a baby, it does look like my period is ending, I know last month I had my period on April 15th and this month was May 20th, so I'm a little confused on when is the right time that I will be ovulating. I really need your help on this. My fiance really wants a baby and we've been trying for about 3 months now and every month when I get my period I see the disappointment in this face, like he failed.
