Welcome to ehealthforum

Every woman's cycle is different and if her regular periods are of 38 days it is fine as any cycle which is between 24 to 40 days is considered normal.
Have regular intercourse between ovulation days which are 10 to 16 days in a cycle and first day of period is counted as day 1.
Take care!
