Hi. I am 28 years old female, We are trying to conceive. My average cycle is 28 days. I have a doubt that, how to calculate 14th day to have an idea on ovulation? Do we need to consider day 1 of menstrual period started? Or day 1 as when period ended? Please clarify.

Hello, First day of bleeding is Day 1 of the menstrual cycle. You need to calculate the ovulation date form that day. Sexual intercourse on day 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 will help in getting pregnant since that is your fertile period. I hope this helps.
