I have read a ton of stories of women who were having sex during what they thought was the fertile window based on an app like you are talking about and once they started charting, realized they were completely missing the mark. If charting is not your thing, I think just having more sex, more often and not stopping when you think you’ve ovulated is a good way to go!

jny1179:  ditto! If I didn’t chart, who knows how long it would take me to get pregnant. I have typically 27-32 day cycles but can ovulate anywhere from CD 14 to 19!

If you’re not into charting, DTD every 2-3 days!

don’t know how your app could accurately predict 12 days before the next cycle. in the last 3 cycles,  i’ve ovulated on the 11th, 14th, and 16th day.

my LP is consistant at 12 days but i would never know when that 12 days would start..

but yes, having sex at least every 2 days should theoretically get one pregnant.

I myself thought for sure I was ovulating around CD 14 or 15, first month charting I O’d on CD 13.

I proved my app wrong! I am now ovulating anywhere from CD 21-30
