  • Each persons body and cycle is different. So you could very well ovulate right before the end. I personally ovulate about 3-5 days after my period ends.

  • Ovulation TYPICALLY happens about two weeks before your period...but it varies.

    "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler will really really help you with this.

  • is it possible you have a short luteal phase? the second half of your cycle. i have read that if your luteal phase is shorter than 9 days (from ovulation to start of next period) you could have miscarriages. and you should be treated for that. a luteal phase defect. here is just one site with information on luteal phase defect

  • Ovulation generally happens 11-15 days before the start of your cycle. If it's less than 10 days, you could have luteal phase deficiency, which can hinder your ability to carry a pregnancy and which might explain your miscarriage. You should talk to your doctor and start charting your cycles to know for sure if this is a problem; if it is, your doctor can prescribe hormone medications to get you on track, which will greatly improve your chances of conceiving and keeping a pregnancy.
