    i know it sounds like a dumb question but ive heard so many things. would the first day of the cycle be the first day of actuall bleeding, when you start spotting or when your done with it? also my periods are all out of wack( hoping vitex will help) but as far as ovulation goes would i count that from my first day of my cycle or?????????? im confused as to what other ppl have said.

    plz help

    Ok so the first day of full on flow is CD1 to determine O you count back 14 days from CD1 and you will be around when O is. You should temp and once you see a thermol rise then ovulation has occured. Good luck hope this helps.

    The amount of days leading up to O can be different what I said was count back 14 days and that is around the time you o'd. Most ladies have a 14 day LH which is the time between O and AF. Hope it helps if not get some opk's and start testing CD10 they explain all that in the kits themselves. FXD

    Good Luck :thumbup:
