    Default Ovulation question

    Ok this is my first thread using my phone so i hope it works and is in the right section.

    I had two kids before i actually learnt to conceive lol. I was just wondering if you definitely ovulate 14 days before your period? Even if your cycles are irregular.

    I got af on the 6th of Dec and then again on the 3rd of Jan. P-tracker puts o at 18th of Jan. And then my af was due 31st of Jan but is still mia. No af. Bfn.

    Any idea what's going on? And does Ovulation always occur 14 days before af?

    Hey ComeBackKid,

    Nope, and nope.

    Ovulation can occur anytime. Some people ovulate 5 days after their period, some people 20 days after.

    Some people have a 17 day luteal phase (the period between ovulation and AF), some people have a 9 day luteal phase.

    Few people have a textbook cycle where 'o' occurs exactly 14 days between either end of their cycle.

    Just to make it difficult, eh?

    Ovulation doesn't come at exactly 14 days. oh... just saw what shoopuf has written... I agree with her lol.

    When I was TTC using OPK, my ovulation happened at different times each month! (irregular cycle)

    Dammit!! I thought when you got your period it means you ovulated fourteen days prior! So anything could be happening!

    Thanks for your reply!

    In addition to PP advice, some women dont ovulate at all! Even if you have regular cycles does not mean that you ovulated that month!

    No wonder TTC is so hard! Good luck though :-)

    Agree it can happen anytime. I was TTC under the impression I would ovulate between days 14-16. After using opks I discovered I was ovulating day 20/21 so I was completely missing it. I am now pregnant after ovulating around cd5/6. (this was 8 weeks after a m/c so that probably affected my cycle. Again I only knew because I used opks.

    Best way to tell, according to my FS, is to watch your mucous. When it's eggwhite-y O will happen in the next few days.

    I'm a CD14 girl, almost always go between CD13 and 15. So some people do!

    Yes I get ewcm 2 days before I o. It's such a good thing to know. Before going on forums etc I never knew what it meant. I have a 30 day cycle and always ovulate day 17-19

    I find taking my temperatures is the easiest way to tell when I O, but also by watching my CM. when I spot EWCM I can usually be guarenteed that my temp will rise a couple of days later.
