Ive been doing some further calculations and have confused myself even more than I was when I started!!

Am trying to figure out my dates re ovulation.

Af comes on the 20th of every month, pretty much as regular as clock work so would I therefore be right in thinking that ovulation will occur on different dates each month or the same dates??

Ive looked at three different ov calendars on the internet and they all say something different??? Thanks Ladies!! xxxx Mwahx

shouldn't it fall of different dates as it depends on how many days are in the month, e.g. 30 or 31.........also isn't the general rule work back 14 days from when your af is usually due?

Do you mean your af come CD20 every month. Obe is right you do count back from af or CD1 as your luteal phase is always the same length but no neccessarily 14 days, mine is only 11.

How long have your cycles been the past few months

Af always comes on 20th of each month so therefore if I counted back 14 days then ov would be 6th of each month. This is where I am getting confused as when I put it into the calculator it doesnt come up as 6th of each month it varies between 5th, 8th and 10th....god this is seriously confusing me now!!! Embarassed

Hi there,if your af arrives on the 20th of each month despite how many days there in the months you cycles isn' 28 days then it will be between 28 and 31 if that makes any sesnse.. and that is why your ov dates are varied 2..

If you AF arrives on the 20th of each month your cycle will be the lengh of that month i.e March 30 day, April 30 days, May 31 day, June 30 days and so on. so lets say last month you af on the 20th 14 days after that is 4th of april, and if you had your af this months on the 20th your ov (if 14 days) will be 3rd May.
It looks like you do not ov every month at the same time in your cycle as you cycle is betwwen 28 and 31 days.
Bet ive really confused you know lol sorry xxx

Do you chart your temps? If you start doing this you will know when you ov as your temp spikes 24 - 48 hours after you ov. This is the only way I know when I ov apart from also charting my CM and CP

Ovulation usually takes place approximately 14 days after the beginning of your menstrual cycle.
count 14 days from the 20th of each month, not backwards from the 20th to the 6th..

This is where I am hitting a problem as some things say 14 days backwards and some say 14 days from your first day of af.

So, if it is 14 days from last day of af then it would be Sunday 4th May or if its 14 days backwards then it would be Tuesday 6th May. The problem being I dont want to miss the window.

im really sorry girlies i dont want to sound completely thick but I just dont get it!!!

It is confusing, i know.. Have you been monitoring you ewcm and you cp?? I think these are the 2 best was... Everybody is different so its hard to pinpoint someone elses ov dates as they say with a 28 day cycles it normally 14 days but even thats not always the case.
Wish you the best of luck.. this is going to be my 1st month of checking my cp so im hopein i can pin point and don't miss it either.
