Brief Answer:
Fertile period is 29 Oct-5 Nov.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for trusting us with your health concern.
Ovulation occurs 14 days prior to next period due date. In case of regular period with 28-30 days duration, the fertile days will be from 11th-18th days of each cycle. Your fertile period is between 29th October to 5th November. Regular intercourse during the fertile period is required for you to conceive. You can use ovulation prediction kit (LH kit) to predict ovulation time in mid cycle. With this protocol, chances of pregnancy can be maximized.
Please feel free to discuss further. I will be glad to answer the follow up queries that you have.
Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Rakhi Tayal.

From 29th October you can try.

Detailed Answer:
Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
Since your period started on 19th October, you can start trying from 29th October till 5th November. It is best to have unprotected intercourse daily during these fertile days.
Hope my answer is helpful.

Brief Answer:
The dates will remain the same.

Detailed Answer:
Yes. The day the spotting starts is considered as day 1 of the period. You can have sex during the fertile period which is 29 Oct to 5 Nov in this cycle. This does not change with a slightly prolonged period of spotting.
