  • It all depends on how long your cycle is and when you ovulate. I, for example, have a 32-36 day cycle. I typically ovulate around day 19-23 of each cycle.

  • TYPICALLY it's 14 days before the start of your period, but that can be different. I know a woman who ovulates on cycle day 7.

  • When you're ovulating. Which will vary based on your individual cycle. For many women it's 14 days. For others it's less time. RARELY is it immediately after your period.

    Pick up a copy of "Taking Charge Of Your Fertility" by Toni Wechsler. It's sort of an owner's manual for the female reproductive system, and its method WORKS.

  • It all depends. You can ovulate different times during the month. Average is 14 days after your first day of you period.

  • By the way, the first day of your period is considered Day 1, so when they say Day 14, that's not 14 days after your period stops. Also, all women differ when they ovulate, so you'll need to clue in to what you body is telling you. I also second the recommendation for "Taking Charge of Your Fertility".
