Thanks for posting query.

For all practical purposes you have to count the date from 20th April in her case.
Please count the number of days as per her routine period for next possible date.

As far as date of ovulation is concerned,normally ovulation take place in mid-cycle.For example in 28 days cycle,it will in most of cases will takes place between 12-16 days.During period chances of getting pregnant are highest.

Still this is a method which relies on guess.In your wife`s case there are all the chances that the next cycle may come early or late.In some cases after this kind of tablets for timing of menstruation the next cycle gets disturbed.

This month you can only take chance.From next cycle things will settle down.

I hope I have taken care of your query,still if you have something more to ask I will be available for follow up.
