Many women often wonder about ovulating and when the best time to try to have a baby is. To estimate when ovulation will occur, begin with your typical cycle length, in days and subtract 14. Step up that many days from the first day of your period. For example:
First day of period: March 1st
Cycle length: 31 days
Cycle length minus 14: 31 - 14: 17 days
You can expect ovulation to happen on or close to March 18th

Sexual intercourse can be a few days before ovulation and still make a baby. The window for baby-making is considered to be 5 days before an egg is released to one day after.
