For the last two months my period has come evry 25 days...so im guessing i should come on at that time this month too. In the months before my cycle varied anywhere from 25 to 34 days. anyway, i was wondering when would i ovulate? I thought it happens 14 days after your period ends but if i get my period in 3 days wouldnt it be way too early to tell if i were pregnant? im so confused .. I would love to concieve which is why im trying to understand ovulation and when i actually would. please someone give some insight i need it. thanks

It is the big unknown...when will I ovulate? There are a few ways that can help you figure out when you ovulate, including tracking your cervical mucus, taking your basal temperature, or using an over-the-counter "ovulation predictor kit".

Please know that women's cycles change month-to-month, so even the most "perfectly" regular cycle (28-day cycle, with ovulation occurring exactly in the middle..on day 14) can change next cycle.

To predict ovulation is not an exact science, and is the reason most experts tell couples who are trying to conceive: have frequent unprotected sex leading up to, and including, the days you expect to ovulate. (frequent meaning every-other day). Women can ovulate as early as "day 7" and as late as "day 21" in their cycle, depending on length of cycle. It is difficult..most women do not know when they ovulate until after-the-fact, as most of the time a menstrual period begins 14 days after ovulation.

We wish you the best of luck in conceiving! Remember it takes most women 6-12 months to conceive, as every cycle you "only" have a 20% chance (assuming under age of 35).
