Women tend to ovulate two weeks before their next period is due to begin. As the cycle varies between different women, this would usually mean that ovulation takes place anywhere between days 10 and 18 of the menstrual cycle, counting day one as the first day of your menstrual flow, but there are no hard and fast rules that you can apply here.

Do be aware, however, that although you will usually hear that a woman ovulates somewhere around the middle of her monthly cycle, a woman generally starts the ovulation process during the last day of her menstruation or sometimes the day after that. This means that you could become pregnant as soon as your period ends; there really is no totally "safe" time to have unprotected sex.

There are various ways to determine if you are ovulating or not. If you observe that the cervical mucus appears clear and slippery, then it is a a sign that you are probably fertile. Another way to determine ovulation is tracking your body temperature. If it increases by 1 degree, it means that you are likely to be fertile.

Alternatively, using an ovulation kit is often seen as a more precise tool to calculate ovulation. Ovulation calculators can also used if you are having regular periods.

For a woman with a cycle that is exactly 28 days, ovulation will usually occur 14 days before the start of her next menstrual period, which is exactly 14 days after the start of her last menstrual period. However, since many women don't have a period that lasts exactly 28 days, it can be somewhat difficult to know when ovulation does occur. One common misconception about when ovulation occurs is that it will always occur exactly 14 days after the start of their menstrual period. The fact of the matter is, it is more accurate to say that ovulation will occur approximately 14 days before the start of the next menstrual period. Thus, if a woman has a cycle that typically lasts 32 days, she will ovulate on day 18 following the start of her last menstrual period, rather than on day 14 following her last menstrual period.

No; a woman will not ovulate if she is pregnant.

When a woman ovulates depends on her menstrual cycle. During the average 28 day cycle a woman will typically ovulate somewhere between days 12-16, 14 days before menstruation, but unless you track your cycles you can't be sure when you ovulate. Use Fertility Awareness Method to determine when you ovulate.

An average woman will ovulate sometime between days 14 and 18 of their cycle. Every woman is different.

No, although a woman may be fertile during her period due to fertile quality cervical mucus (thus pregnancy is a possibility from sex during menstruation) she cannot ovulate during menstruation. Typically women ovulate 14 days before menstruation, or if a woman has a short menstrual cycle she may ovulate next right after menstruation.

http://www.americanpregnancy.org/gettingpregnant/ovulationfaq.htmThis site says that it is possible to ovulate the day after pregnancy and that it is not accurate to say women ovulate 14 days after their period. Every woman is different and they ovulate at different times.

There is no magical fast way to do this just focus on when about 5 days before you ovulate and when you ovulate.

No, a woman is not supposed to ovulate while pregnant

The menstrual period comes 14-15 days after ovulation. If a woman doe not ovulate, her period will not come. So, when a woman suffers from amenorrhea (absence of menstruate period) she is probably not ovulating.

Yes, in fact that is often when women ovulate. During a typical 28 day cycle a woman will likely ovulate on day 14 of her cycle - so if a woman menstruates for 6 days, that would mean she would ovulate 8 days after her period. Unless a woman uses something such as fertility awareness method she cannot know for sure when she is fertile or ovulating - remember cycles change.

No, if a woman does not ovulate then she cannot menstruate - menstruation only occurs following ovulation when pregnancy does not occur. Not all vaginal bleeds are menstruation, there are many reasons why a woman may experience a bleed without it following ovulation.

You will usually ovulate 2-8 weeks after a miscarriage. It varies in every Woman.

The answer varies from woman to woman, and is influenced by your mentrual cycle length before you started using the Nuva Ring, but most women will ovulate between two and four weeks after the last ring.

If you have a 28 day cycle (which is the average), you will ovulate around day 14. Two weeks later you will get your period (if that ovulation cycle didn't result in fertilization of the egg), then two weeks after that you will ovulate again. But cycles can differ greatly from woman to woman and can be affected by hormones and stress levels.

a woman ovulates at the 14th day plus or minus 2

a woman ovulate 14/15 days after her period or 14 days before her period

Yes, a woman can ovulate twice during her menstrual cycle but it would still be during the ovulation phase of her menstrual cycle. A woman cannot just randomly ovulate, her menstrual cycle controls when she ovulates - typically women will ovulate two weeks before menstruation.To correct a previous answer: Orgasm does not cause ovulation, that's not biologically possible.

When sperm goes in her and she is making the baby with the man...

User Avatar

A woman can still ovulate and have irregular periods.

User Avatar

Yes you can ovulate three days after your period. Typically during a 28 day cycle a woman will ovulate on day 14 (two weeks before menstruation) and be fertile up to a week beforehand, but if your menstrual cycle is short you can ovulate earlier.

to be honest with u its possible but i dont no u would have to ask a woman that question

Hormonal birth control is meant to prevent ovulation. If it's working properly, you won't ovulate on birth control.

User Avatar

Normally a woman does not ovulate while taking the birth control pill. This is the birth control pill's primary method of action.

A strong orgasm can make a woman ovulate again but normally a orgasm doesn't make her ovulate. Do remember that semen can live for 72 hours (3 days) in a female body. During that time you can get pregnant.

How fertile a woman is after menstruation depends on the woman and on her menstrual cycle. During the average 28 day cycle a woman is most likely to ovulate on day 14 and can be fertile between days 7-16 - if a woman's cycle is shorter she could ovulate directly after menstruation so be at her most fertile.
