Our expert says:
You calculations are perfectly correct. However since there could be minor fluctuations within a fertility cycle with regards to ovulation, my advice would be to actively monitor yourself for ovulation. This can be done either by repeated ultrasound scans or alternately by means of the urine LH detection kits. These urine tests are fairly accurate and can be purchased over the counter and importantly can predict ovulation ±40 hours prior to the actual release of the egg. Sometimes the use of fertility medication such as Fertomid can result in earlier than expected ovulation and monitoring should therefore start from day-10 of your cycle.
