Brief Answer:
AS BELOW

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for writing to us with your health concern.
As I can see, your cycle has not been regular.
It was 20 days in APril, and then 28 days in May.
WIth irregular cycles, ovulation can be very irregular and unpredictable.
The strips are not very reliable in either case.
It is best to remain sexually active throughout the cycle.
Alternatively, please go for follicular monitoring ( tracking ovulation by serial pelvic ultrasound scans ).
That way, ovulation is objectively and definitely confirmed, helping you to plan conception.
Take care.
