Dear Addison Blaire
In most cases the day of ovulation is a constant 14 days prior to the onset of menstruation. Therefore your ovulation days would most likely be day-13 to day-15. Since this is a difference which may span more than 48 hours it would be advisable to use ovulation prediction kits in particular the urinary LH detection kits (such as Ovuplan or Clearplan). With these ovulatory predictors it is possible to predict ovulation 36 – 40 hours prior to the actual event and it is therefore possible to time intercourse accordingly. In your case testing from day-10 would be the most suitable counting the first day of bleeding as day-1.
