Well, between periods. About a week to two after it starts

When you have a period, you ovulate (release an egg) about 2 weeks after. You become pregnant when the sperm connects with the egg and implants into your uterus, which happens about 2 weeks after ovulation.

*facepalm* Seriously?! 

You ovulate BETWEEN a periods. A period is the shedding of the lining of the uterus because you didn't get pregnant that month. Then it takes about 2 weeks to rebuild the lining again and your ovary releases an egg. If fertilized it will (possibly) implant in the lining of the uterus and if it takes hold and successfully implants you are pregnant. If not, about 2 weeks later you shed the lining of your uterus again. That's why it's called a cycle, because it's circle.

So about a week or two after a period starts? So if someone gets their period on Jan 1st to Jan 4th they can get pregnant from anytime they have sex from the last day of their period to about the 15th give or take a few days....

 No. Generally, and I say generally because every woman's body is different, if your period is Jan 1 to Jan 4, you'd start ovulating somewhere between Jan 11 and Jan 21, if you normally have a 28 day cycle. Sometimes it can be early, sometimes it can be late, because everyone's body works differently and there are tons of factors that affect ovulation.

Not every women is textbook. Generally it's after AF. I use opks and temp, and I typically o cd13/16. It has been as early as cd10 (once, a few yrs ago) and cd12 this past February. Ff (a fertility app) gave me crosshairs saying I possibly Od cd8.
When I say CD I mean cycle day it's the day from ur first full flow all the way till ur next period.
R u trying to get pregnant? There's a great TTC group on here. U should look it up.

The facepalm was unnecessary. No women should be afraid or made to think she's stupid to ask a question on here. Be considerate.

After, that is a point of a period to ovulate. Do you think you're pregnant? Do you have other kids?

For both of my girls, I got pregnant right after my period ended (really easy to keep track because my exh had something against sex. and we would go months - year+ with out it)

The facepalm was that a grown adult would not know how her own body works. This is basic health/biology class. This is what happens when schools aren't allowed to teach BASIC health and sex education classes. i was raised by 2 nurses so I knew long before how it all works but I think it is terrible that others aren't taught the basics of human biology in school.
