I may sound really naive but I'm jut curious. I was just browsing for opks and a link was in the search results for a calculator. Okay, so it asked for the first days of my 3 lmps & said I average a 30 day cycle & & Aunt Flo typically comes on the 20th of each month & it said with that info
I would more likely be more fertile April 4th - April 8th. I know that I probably sound really naive but it was just like what's it hurt to just play with the calculator.

It doesn't hurt, but I wouldn't count on it! No matter what length your cycle is, you won't necessarily ovulate in the middle of that. The only way to know is OPK's and temping.

They are just telling you the the average. It doesn't indicate what your body may be doing.

Well I was searching as I said opks & I also read that you can't depend opks 100% because it just detects a surge which doesn't always mean your ovulating?
