How fertility savvy are you?

I was taken aback at this article stating that a lot of women really didn't understand their fertility cycle.  Maybe it's because being on the boards makes you more aware of how our bodys work,  but do you think this statistic is accurate in your experiences?

Researchers at Monash University in Melbourne polled 204 women looking for fertility assistance at two assisted reproductive technology (ART) clinics in the city. Just 13 percent could correctly answer which days of their menstrual cycle they were fertile, even though 68 percent said they believed they had accurately timed sex in their attempts to conceive naturally, and 87 percent said they tried to improve fertility knowledge.
