I would reccomend using OPK. (Ovulation Predictor Kits) If you have a normal 28 day cylcle you are more likely to ovulate on the 14th but its not a guarantee. Also try charting your Basal Body Temp, during Ovulation you will notice a spike in your temp. You  may also try keeping to know your body well, checking your CM ( cervical mucus) During Ovulation your CM will look like EWCM (Egg White Cervical Mucus) It will become clear and strechy when pulled against your fingers. Hope this helps.

It depends on how long your cycle usually lasts.  If you have a "typical" 28 day cycle, then yeah you probably will ovulate around day 14.  If, like many women (including me), you have cycles that are longer (mine run 33 - 35 days), then you most likely ovulate later.  Most women ovulate between 12 - 16 days before their period starts.  The first half of your cycle can vary a lot, but the second half usually stays pretty consistent month to month.

Hope this helps!

My friends doc told her to start having sex on cycle day 10 and do it every other day.  Youre bound to hit an ovulatory cycle.

According to what I have been reading (although I'm a newbie at ttc ;)) I think Hope4_3 is right... you should start trying a few days before your ovulation day. After your ovulation day your changes drop but apparently it really depends on how long or short your cycle is... Good luck!! Lots of baby dust :D

I agreed with Hope4_3, try starting at day 9. Make sure to do it every other day, and when u notice ur cervical mucus is changing to a egg white consistency, try doing it every day. Can you update me on your status now. were u successful?
