The belief that ovulation takes place 14 days after the period starts is a that prevents a lot of woman from getting pregnant. The day actually varies among woman and may change from one cycle to another. The way to effectively predict it is to use an ovulation kit which detects hormonal days and notifies you in advance when you will be ovulating. Another way is to use a basal body thermometer -ovulation occurs when there is a sharp temperature shift (rise) in the overall pattern each month. Before ovulation, temperatures tend te be in the 97's and after ovulation, the shift sharply to the 98's. There is a lot more to it than I can explain here, so for further details, you need to buy a book or read up about it on fertility websites

When you ovulate depends on your menstrual cycle.

Typically ovulation occurs two weeks before menstruation - how many days after menstruation depends on your cycle length. For example if you had a 28 day cycle you'd likely ovulate around day 14, whereas if you had a 44 day cycle you've likely have ovulated on day 30.

Unless you were using Fertility Awareness Methods or ovulation testing kits you'd not know when you are ovulating. Cycles change or ovulation can be delayed so guessing ovulation date doesn't work.

How do you know when you are ovulating without taking an ovulation test?

A woman ovulates half-way through her cycle. For example, if your cycle is every 28 days (meaning if you start your period every 28 days), then two weeks (14 days) after you started your period would be when you are ovulating. If your cycle is 32 days, then you would be ovulating 16 days after you began your period. You may also experience mild cramping (sort of like the ending of your period) and a discharge with no odor, which is normal. Some women tend to have a higher and longer sex drive around the ovulating time. Try not to wear a pantyliner since it can increase the possibility of bacteria or yeast infections.

How many days before your period is your safe period?

There really is no time that it is 'safe' to have sex because it is so difficult to work out exactly when someone is ovulating, and also because there have been many cases of people getting when they are not ovulating. Therefore, it's important to always use some kind of protection when having sex.
