no one will answer my posts

Hi. I just need a little help/advice on this. My husband and I arent "trying" to conceive but if it happens we will be happy! My last two periods were on Dec 25, Jan 21. My husband and I have unprotected sex several times bewtween the 9th-14th. Am I right that i would begin ovulating on the 7th? 21-14? How long does ovulation last? Well today is the 17th and for the past few days I have been over exhausted-since Sunday the 14th to be exact. I feel a lot of pressure near my pubic line and sometimes a sharp pain here and there. It doesnt feel like my period but I guess it could be? I have also had a lot of headaches (not super bad ones). I guess what I am asking is Could this be inplantation cramps? Is it the right time for that? Because I guess I should start my period in the next week-somewhere between the 21-25th. I would just appreciate some feedback, advice or would love to hear if anyone else has experienced this and then found out they were pregnant? Thanks so much!

It could be.  Pregnancy symptoms are very similar to the symptoms of a period.  I had minor cramps the whole week before when my period should have started.  I also had the slight nagging headache.  I would wait until your period is officially late and then take a test.  good luck!

i had some early cramps as well and a sharp pain in my hip.  since your one cycle was 27 days, you may ovulate 6-10 days after your period ends. Everyone is different though. That would put you about the 3rd-7th. You may have been a little late, but of course its possible. If my calculations are correct and your cycles consistant, youd be due tomorrow.

Ovulation happens 14 days before your period. Your egg is only viable for 24 hours. That's why it's only a 25% chance of conception each month. There are a few websites with ovulation prediction calendars if you google it. It will give you a five day window of when you should be fertile because it's best to have sex the few days before ovulation so that the sperm is there waiting to fertilize the egg. Sperm can live up to 5 days inside you in the right cervical mucus.

Good luck with the test.

Ovulation doesn't always happen 14 days before AF, for me it's 13 days before, and a friend of mine it's 18 days before.  14 is just the average, I believe it's most common to have ovulation between 10-16 days before AF.  For each person that number can differ, but for each cycle you have it will always be the same for that one person.

Are your cycle's always 28 days?  I know mine vary from month to month, anywhere from 24 days to 31.

The best way to know when you actually ovulate is to try charting, for example some take the body temp, and others just look for Cervical Mucus (Egg White Cervical Mucus is an indicator that Ovulation is right around the corner, if you had this on a day you had Sex then chances are possible, also note that having sex, the next 24 hours you may have EWCM even if you really don't, the sperm discharge makes it look/feel like it's EWCM).  Also, some women have Ovulation cramps.  

implantation cramps can usually be felt 6-10 days after conception, so it seems possible.  Do you see any faint spotting when you wipe?  Some women also see very light spotting during implantation.

Good Luck!

Ovulation happens in general 14 days before your period starts.this would be the case on an average 28 day cycle.if your regular,if your cycles are out by few days then ovulation can be early or late,causing your luteal phase to be different.
when you chart once you hit 18dpo then chances are your pregnant.leave it few more days and take a test,best of luck.

I agree with the other ladies. On average you ovulate about 2 weeks before your period. This is called the luteal phase (time between ovulation and new period). Your period does NOT determine when you will ovulate. Ovulation determines when you will have your next cycle, unless you do conceive.

And as someone else stated, the egg is only viable for about 24 hours, sometimes up to 48 hours. So there is a small window of opportunity to conceive each cycle. The great news is that sperm can live up to five days in the vagina. When you ovulate you will notice a discharge that is clear and stretchy. That discharge (EWCM- egg white cervical mucous) helps keep sperm alive in the acidic environment of the vagina, increasing your chances of conception.

Hope that helps!

Good luck, it looks like you have lots of good advice here. You can always Google "Ovulation Calculator" and that can give you an idea of when you will be most fertile. But, you have to know your normal amount of days per cycle for YOU (28 days is average, but that doesn't mean that's what you are) Count the days in between the start of one period to the next to determine the number of days. Good luck to you!

They sell a dolar ovulating tests at dollar stores, get couple and then you will know for sure. Check your basal temp every day 2 times a day if it stays between 98.8 and 99.2 for 18 days you are possible more possitive but will still need a text. i am 18 days at 99.1 today and am anxious myself.
