Question: ovulation and fertile period


 laradeol - Wed Oct 21, 2009 12:45 pm

i have heard that some women feel slight pain and discomfort when they ovulate. my cycle is generally of 26-28 days.accordingly i should be ovulating between the 9th and the 19th day of my cycle. however i feel pain and discomfort just 4 or 5 days before i get my period and it lasts till my period starts. could i be ovulating so late?

User avatar Hello,
It is impossible to guess if you are a late ovulator but the chances are greater that you are experiencing PMS symptoms.

You can monitor your body's basal temperature for clues about this. Some women become proficient in monitoring their vaginal secretions and can detect subtle changes, but for most, it is anyone's guess when they ovulate. With a regular cylce of around 28 days, it is likely somewhere around day 14.

Best wishes.
