Your conception questions answered: Dr. Dawn Harper
In this article


Is there an average number of days post last day of your period, that you ovulate?

Dr Dawn:

You ovulate 14 days before the first day of your next period, which, if you have a regular 28 day cycle is also 14 days after your last period, but if your cycle is not that predictable it can be difficult to know.

You may find it useful to use a Clearblue Digital Ovulation Test or Fertility Monitor to help take the guesswork out of identifying your peak fertile days.
