Am i late???
is it true that you ovulate 14 days before your next period?? If so…

LMP 26 July 07
I have a cycle of between 29 – 36 days at most, but usually 31-32 days. I purchased a home ovulation kit and tried it out this month. I got a positive on the 9 August 2007 (day 15), we had sex from 9 August – 14 August everyday. Once you get a positive on the test it means you’ll ovulate between 24 – 36 hours. Which will make ovulation day on either 10 or 11 – right? If I add 14 days from day 11 that means I should have started my period on Saturday now past right?? Am I reading to much into this or could I actually be pregnant???

I have got sore boobs and tired and nauseous, but I’m also not sure if it’s my period… please advise, when can I test??

Dear Nix

Your interpretation is absolutely correct and I would suggest you do a home pregnancy test immediately or alternately to be more accurate a blood pregnancy test.
