Can you ovulate before you period?

ovulation normally occurs about 2 weeks before your period actually starts. The purpose of a period is a direct relation to the release of an egg during ovulation. The egg will be released from the falopian tubes and enter the uterus (ovulation). Once the egg sits in the uterus for several days if it is not penetrated by sperm the body will reject it by causing contractions of the uterus to release the egg. This is when your period occurs as your uterus is "washing" out the egg from the uterus. So....yes...ovulation always occurs before your period.
