DPO calculation


I'm sure this has been covered but I cant seem to find the answer via search maybe because "DPO" is to short of a term to search? Anyways my question is.. how do you calculate DPO.

If I ovulated May 1st... Is May 1st 1 dpo or is May 2nd 1 dpo? I'm a tad confused cause when figuring out your first cycle day you use the day of youer period as cd1... but since dpo is day POST ovulation (is it past or post? LOL).. would the next day be day 1?

Thanks!

I was told that if you ovulated May 1 that May 2 would be dpo 1.

DaisyBee is right.

Just to confuse the matter further make sure you are going from actual ovulation day. The next day is 1 dpo. If you are using opks to detect ovuation, you will get a positive opk 12-36 hours before you ovulate. So, if you get a positive opk on May 1, it is safest to assume May 2 is ovulation day, and May 3 is 1 dpo.

If you are BBT charting, then you know ovulation day exactly from your temps.

Thats what I did, I had positive OPK On April 30th so I am counting May 1 as ovulation day and May 2 and 1 dpo. If this cycle doesn't take me for me I think I'm going to have to consider charting next cycle. I'll know in a week or so LOL
