Ovulation typically occurs two weeks before menstruation. This means that during the average 28 day cycle ovulation would occur around day 14, mid-way through the menstrual cycle, but obviously longer cycles would put ovulation further back than day 14 of the menstrual cycle.

You can use period tracking apps to predict when you may ovulate based on previous cycles but these are not reliable as menstrual cycles can change. The best way to track fertility is to use Fertility Awareness Method to track fertility signs daily to determine exactly where you are in your cycle: this can tell you when you are ovulating and when you are fertile, it's so accurate that it can be used as a birth control method with up to 98% effectiveness.

Women usually ovulate 14 days before the first day of bleeding... middle of their cycle. if you are an irregular cycle I recommend using the Ovulation Predictors found in stores or here on the net."ovulation calculator-is what I use through a site by 'www.Google.com' If you don't know how to calculate your fertile days consult your doctor, maybe he/she can help you! good luck hope this helped~

Yes, you can. It is a quite a bit later than what "normal ovulation" would be but it can definitely happen. Women with PCOS usually ovulate later as well

usually 14 days before and 14 days after your period. There is usually a 48 hour window to have an egg fertilized.

Your period is the beginning of a new menstrual cycle. Women ovulate once a month usually about 14 days (give or take a few) after the first day of their last period. If you did conceive (become pregnant) with that ovulation, you will typically not ovulate anymore until you have had your baby and begin having a normal period again.
