Figuring out when you ovulate is one way to try to help you get pregnant faster. Since you only ovulate once every cycle, and the egg is only viable for about a day, you will need to try to pinpoint ovulation to maximize your chances of conception. This ovulation calculator is using best guesses based on the length of your menstrual cycle. There are more accurate ways to figure out when you ovulate including charting and measuring your hormones with ovulation prediction kits.
Number of Days in your Cycle:
(28 is an average, in case you're not sure of your cycle length and want to guess.)
Your Ovulation Date:
Ovulation slightly varies for everyone. When you ovulate will depend on many factors in your menstrual cycle, your health, and more. Typically a woman will ovulate 14 days prior to the end of her cycle. So you count backwards from the beginning of your cycle. If you have a 32 day cycle, you're most likely going to ovulate on day 18. If you have a 28 day cycle, you will most likely ovulate on day 14. This handy calculator will help you figure out when you can expect to ovulate in a very rudimentary form.
