Hi

I hope someone in here can set me straight as I am trying to figure out when I ovulate.

My cycle is 21 days to the tee from the end of one cycle to the beginning of the next. It's 25 days from onset to onset.

If I ended my last period May 31, when would I ovulate? I was on ivillage and it said 14 days before my next period. Is that right? So my next period should begin June 20, so would my ovulation be June 6?

Thanks for any clarity!

It would only be 14 days before your period, if you have a 14 day luteal phase (lp). With your short cycles, you may have a shorter lp, or you may ovulate early, or a combination of both.
I would suggest you get a copy of TCOYF, and start charting.

I would suggest charting too. It's not accurate to say that you O on cd14. Since you have a short cycle, you could O on cd11. The only way for you to know is to chart or use opk. Good luck!
