Our expert says:
In a patient with regular 28-day cycle and no other hormonal imbalances, it is expected that ovulation would occur in the mid-cycle phase i.e. day-14 of the cycle. However there is considerable variation even in a regular 28-day cycle which may result in a shift in ovulation by 2 days either prior to day-14 i.e. from day-12 to day-16. To more accurately detect ovulation I would recommend the use of the urine LH detection kits such as Clearplan commencing from round about day-10 of your cycle. Should you not detect any changes on this ovulation testing method then follicle tracking by ultrasound scans with your gynaecologist would be recommended for at least 2 to 3 cycles to establish whether you have an erratic ovulation and possibly dysfunctional luteal phase.
