I went and bought a different brand of a ovulation kit, now am i understanding this right, my cycle is usually every 28 days , i read the direction and it says to count the first day of your period to the next one and this is the day you should start testing.my period started on feb 11, and ended on feb 17, thats giving me a starting day of mar 10. Is this right? now are you suppose to have your period when your taking an ovulation test. or doesnt it matter? need to know for sure.

If your cycles are generally 28 days long, you need to do the ovulation test starting around the 10th day of your cycle until you have confirmed ovulation. It is best to test in the afternoon, not in the morning. Good luck!
