me and my boyfrined were trying to figure out when girls ovulate so we dont have sex thoes days to be more safe.
so i found out that you ovulate 14 days usually before your next period.
so if i have a 30 day cycle and my next period is due the 11th… then i ovulate on the 28th?
but i just read that some girls can ovulate whenever.
this one girl said she did 6 days before.
so now im confused.
help?December 27, 2007 at 9:24 am #20015
Hey there, I just came across your post and I want to let you know that I cannot answer your question…I can only back up the info you shared already…Every woman was created differently and to put something like ovulation in a box and to trust what others say or have experienced is not a safe way to go to protect from unexpected pregnancy…Even though there is a majority of women who have a regular ovulation and are successful with tracking it there are always exceptions…The only 100% effective way to not get pregnant is by practicing abstinence, I don’t recommend that in a marriage because that could do a lot of damage..LOL…but I highly recommend it before marriage, I learned the hard way and had two kids by two dads before I was finally married…I decided to choose abstinence when I got pregnant the second time, It was successful and I didn’t have sex for 2 1/2 years until my wedding night…It may have been lonely sometimes and it took several months before I got used to sleeping alone (except my daughter lived in my bed!!!) and I had urges where I wanted to give up and just forget about the promise I had made myself but in the end it was so worth it, I never had to worry about pregnancy even if my period was messed up, I didn’t have to pollute my body and mess up my hormones with birth control, I didn’t have to worry about STD’s and such and above all I didn’t have to worry about feeling used or wondering if my boyfriend really liked me for who I was, I only had one boyfriend in that time and I married him, he treated me like gold and still does and it had nothing to do with what I did for him physically…honestly…I am not one to preach something that I know is impossible and I am not one to hold someone to an unachievable standard, but if I could go 2 1/2 years and save myself for my wedding night after having my past track record than anyone can do it…if you are at all concerned with unexpected pregnancy (and you should be if you are not married, still in school, or financially unstable) then I strongly encourage abstinence, it may not be the "fun" or "popular" way to go but you have nothing to lose by giving it a try…except a boyfriend who doesn’t respect your body and what good are they really??? Be a Stand Up Girl and start making new choices that will have positive effects in your life, you won’t regret it…I promise…Love MegDecember 27, 2007 at 9:51 am #20016
thanks for that story and advice!
but i live with my boyfriend. i dont think i could stop having sex.
i know it sounds werid but i think im addicted or something. ill get moody and everything if we dont.
its probably just my hormones or something.
and i dont want to stop having sex. i love it…ahhh i know probably TMI.
but we are trying to be more careful. condoms and spermacide or however you spell it. lol.December 27, 2007 at 10:41 am #20018
It varies woman to woman. If you have a regular 28 day cycle, the the convention is to think that you ovulate 14 days before your next period is due. However this is not the case for all. Some ovulate before or after this. There is no way to tell for the individual. Sounds like you are being careful already though.
