  • You do ovulate BEFORE you get your period. You get your period because the eeg was not fertile and the period is the body's response to getting rid of it.

  • The first day of your cycle is the first day of your period, most woman ovulate some where around day 14, then they start their cycle again around day 28. This by no means is birth control though because you could ovulate at any time depending on how regular your cycle is. If you really want to know exactly, or very close to googling basel temperature charting, and fertile mucus. That will help you understand you own body.

  • Ovulation is before your period. You have to ovulate to have a period because its the shedding of the lining of the uterus where the egg would insert if you were pregnant.
