Do you chart your temperature or anything?  On average, people usually ovulate on or around cycle day 14, cycle day 1 being the first day of your period.  Oddly enough, I don’t know anyone who actually ovulates on CD 14!  I would say, to be safe, assume you will ovulate between CD 10 & 20.  I would BD (baby dance, do the humpty-hump, get jiggy with it, etc…) every other day between CD 10 & 20. 

It might also be helpful to know the exact day you ovulate, so try OPKs or temping.  OPKs tell you BEFORE you O and temping will tell you AFTER that you did indeed O.

Get a copy of Taking Charge of Your Fertility if charting is something you’re interested in trying.  I also used the free FertilityFriend app on my droid.  Also, maybe drop a line in the POAS or Charter threads to see where they get their OPKs if you want to try those as well- I know a lot of Bees get them for crazy cheap on Amazon but I don’t know which kind.  Good luck!!

I am currently actively TTC, I like this site:

http://www.pregnology.com/

It tells you when you are most likely to ovulate and when the best time to take a pregnancy test after ovulation.  I also like that it tells you everyday what is happening “down there”. 

And for OPKs, I buy mine on http://www.saveontests.com

Good luck with everything!

@DaneLady:  Actually women “usually” ovulate 14 days before their next period. So if she has a 28 day cycle it would indeed be on CD(cycle day) 14, but if (like me) she had a 32 day cycle it would be normal to ovulate on CD 18.

But every woman is different and the only really sure way to know when you ovulate is to temp and use ovulation tests.
