you could use ovulation tests
from day 10 and on test every day at the same time mid afternoon works best and watch the lines
when the test line is as dark or darker than the control line you are ovulation



For temping get a basal thermometer
what you do is keep a chart and the thermometer by your bed, before you get up every morning ( try to make it around the same times) take your temp and chart it. you will see a raise before you ovulate and dip afterward and if you end up being pregnant the temp will continue to go up and stay up
if you are getting your period it will go up and then drop but dont depend on the temps to tell you if you are pregnant because that is not always the case.

Also, track cervical mucus. It's a lot to type, so here's a good link with information to help you track it. http://www.americanpregnancy.org/gettingpregnant/PECervical-mucus.html
Also, there's a website I just bought this pack of 50 ovulation packs, and 15 pregnancy tests for $35 http://www.early-pregnancy-tests.com/tesstripvalp1.html

10 days after the start of your period :) A general rule of thumb that isn't accurate for every woman is that you ovulate around 14 days after your period.

When you count you cycle days do you start at the the first day and end at the next start date?

Okay, so i heard you can use BC pills to regulate your cycle, and if you skip a few days or something you are more fertile. Is this true?



I started my first pill today. What days and how many should i skip in order to ovulate?

honestly I have never heard of that
I did mine all natural. I was TTC for 2 years.



I used b6 to regulate my cycles and took prenatals ever single day.
