    Hello

    I have finally got my AF after what seemed like for ages.
    Came off Cerazette july 22nd - got AF 30 days later
    As I haven't had AF for 2 yrs due to the pill I was on, had no idea what my cycles were - from what I remember think it was 28 days...

    So was just wandering how to work out my ovulation dates...if I work on a 30 day cycle - suppose this will be a rough idea ?
    Donn't want to miss my ovulation windows ! Was thinking of buying those ovulation tests....anyone know if these are any good ?

    Thanks

    hey hun! i am using ov tests and i find them really good! they say on the packet what day you should test really. Normaly is around day 14 of you cycle you ovulate. i tend to test about say 12 to be on the safe side. i have no idea what cycles i have as i have pcos so i can go 6months some times with out a period. i hope this helps. i find the Superdrug ov tests really good they are in a mint green box

    if you want a rough idea you can always visit a site like babycenter and use the ovulation calculator

    of course everyone is different

    Best thing to track ovulation is to temp however, it can take a couple of months to get to grips with it. Also, use OPK, start from cycle day 10.

    Good luck!

    Just a quick question, if your cycles are 40 days roughly when should you start with the OPKs? Day 10 as well?

    Thanks for any help

    Wiffie I would start testing from day 23 if it was me. I read that you generally ovulate 14days before your AF is due so that would be day 26 however everyone varies abit so I would say day 23. Obviously it is up to yourself. xx
