Based on your cycle length you can estimate when you will ovulate. So if you got your period today, that would be day 1 of your cycle, then keep counting until you get your next period. You'll ovulate somewhere in the middle of your cycle, depending on how long your cycle is. You can find ovulation calculators online. Make sure you have sex during that time :-) Keep in mind that calculatirs are just an estimate. For that reason, I tend to start having sex a little before the recommended date and keep going a little after. We were having sex everyday in that window, but I was actually at my OB/GYN yesterday and he told me every other day is actually better. The sperm can live inside you for a day and it gives your hubby time to build up the sperm and semen supply if he gets a break in between. So we personally are going to try that now. I don't do any kind of charting or ovulation kits or anything like that so I have no knowledge about them, but I know a lot of the other ladies on here do if you're interested in going that route and they could share more specifics on that.
