Hi.
Newbie here.
I've just started using ovulation tests. I average around 24 day cycle. I just wondered if anyone could help based on these when would be the best times to dtd? Xxx

Hi there
Dtd on your peak days and the day after. Actual Ovualtion happens between 12 and 72 hours after a peak reading (depending which website you read....average is the day after a peak). This ensures there are sperm there ready as the egg is realised.
Looks like you've had a good long peak....mine tends to come and go within a a day.
Looking at the dates though, I wonder if you may have missed it hun? But as I said, could be 72 hours so possibly still a chance?
Fingers crossed for you! X

Forgot to add...an egg can live for 12-24 hours.
