Hi, I'm new to all of this and just wondering if anyone else has a 26 day cycle and when they usually ovulate?
I've been on and off broody for a few years but hadn't actually decided to start TTC. I've been off the pill for 3-4 years so have been using condoms but for the last couple of months we haven't been careful. I'm nearly 32 and the broodiness seems to be hitting me really hard now!
I've been reading some of the threads and I'm picking up some of the lingo (still googling some abbreviations haha). From what I can gather I think I've probably missed my fertile week this month by a day or so, AF due 16/3, but I'm not 100% sure when I may have ovulated.

Anyway just thought I'd see if anyone else had 26 day cycles.

I had 26 day cycles and conceived at 42 on the third cycle of ttc.
Ovulated on day 12.
Best of luck op.
Imo conceiving is the most difficult, stressful period of parenthood.

Thank you for your reply! I am beginning to realise just how stressful it all is.

My cycles were 25 days, a couple of 26 days. I tended to ovulate between cd11-13. I tracked my temperature for a couple of cycles and used cheap opks to monitor as I'd downloaded the ovia app which had my fertile week much later (and made me worry about luteal phase defect hmm). It took us a while, 16 cycles but we got there in the end, am 6+1 now. Good luck 🤞
