Did you know that there are ovulation calendars as iPhone apps? Lying in bed last night while deciding on whether or not to have sex we discovered that such a thing exists; several apps, in fact, to help women calculate their ovulation cycle. I resisted downloading one of the free apps, as my phone is often borrowed by friends and other iPhone aficionados who want to check what apps I am running.
This conversation taught me, though, that I don’t recall from health class what is happening during a woman’s menstrual cycle. I did not know that ovulation occurs approximately 2 weeks after the last period. But, that means that (assuming Kate’s cycle is normal) she is ovulating about now.
So we had sex.
