How many days after your period are you ovulating?
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
The belief that ovulation takes place 14 days after the period
starts is a myth...one 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
