You can buy ovulation kits. Knowing how long your cycle is will help a lot in figuring out roughly when you ovulate too.

Buy ovulation kits or download a app to track your periods not every woman ovulates the same so there is no correct answer for this

Whath is a standard that most doctors will recommend is to begin having sex on cycle day 10 (your first day of your cycle is the first day of your period and you start counting from there).  Then you have sex every OTHER day thereafter for the next 10 days.  This is a great way to catch that egg.  good luck hon

Depends on your cycle length. 14 days assumes a 28 day cycle. So I'd suggest buying a kit to track your own cycle to see if ttc. Good luck!

If ur cycle is every 28 days they say every 2nd day between  days 10 and 18 to just be sure :)
But i found the stick u wee on that lets u know 24 hrs before u ovulate helpped the most. It took me 6 months. And it worked when i used the pee stick.
Also i was told to lay still for 20 mins after sex to give it all a chane instead of running to the bathroom.
I was getting up to wee everytime after sex and didnt realise i was suppose  to stay for a little bit to allow for most of the sperm to swim where they need to and no fall straight  back out

i had miscarriage and was really desperate to get preg again... I have worse period schedule.. So irregular, some months it will be less than 25 days and some more 35 days.  Therefore, I went to doc and she said if I can try to have sex every other day after a week of my period would increase the chances. Plus have sex late at night, make sure u stay in bed so sperm can stay inside. I also keep pillow under my legs... That helped and finally now preg... It's really important that u stay in bed after sex and to help use pillow under ur legs... Hope this helps. Everybody is diff. But wish u the best

Track your fertility. The best sign of being fertile is your cervical fluids (vaginal discharge) will be the consistency of egg whites. That's the time to have sex. It happens generally around two weeks before your period but varies several days for different people.
