When does ovulating occur?
If you take the number of days of your cycle and divide it by two you will get a general day for ovulation. So if your cycle is 28 days you would normally ovulate on day 14, but this could change each cycle. My cycles are between 24 and 28 days so I ovulate earlier around day 11. You will have a clear sticky discharge around the day you ovulate. Normally it is a lot of discharge. You can get a basil body thermometer and take your temp every day when you wake up. Read the instructions on the thermometer and it will tell you how tell when you ovulate if you do not have the discharge.
Ovulation is probably occurring now, as the egg white discharge is a sign of this. To find out accurately when you are ovulating I suggest buying an ovulation test kit from the supermarket or chemist or internet (eg eBay) - they are quite easy to find. Generally with these tests, you pee on a stick and it measures your hormone levels to tell you when you'll be ovulating.
Yes, and no. Menstruation is a specific process that will only occur if you are ovulating - thus if you are menstruating monthly you are ovulating monthly, so the answer here would be yes. However not all vaginal bleeding is menstruation, if there is a hormonal imbalance you could be skipping ovulation and the bleeding may be due to the uterine lining still building-up and then shedding when it can no longer support itself.

If you are not pregnant, and not on your period, then it probably means you are ovulating. The cervix opens up when you are ovulating, and it becomes 'slimier' to help aid the travel of the sperm. If you are pregnant, then it just means your are pregnant. If you are not pregnant, and not ovulating, then it means you are about to have your period.
One way to know that you are ovulating is by examining your cervical mucus. The closer you are to ovulating, your cervical mucus will change from creamy look and texture to a transparent and sticky one. Another way to know your ovulation is to chart your basal body temperature. if you're ovulating, your body heat level will increase because the level of progesterone in your body rises.
Ovulating Ovulating not necessarily. It should, but even if you are infertile your body will go through the motions of ovulating. Technically you ovulate, then you shed the uterus lining (your Period). You are supposed to drop your egg. If the egg gets fertilized it stays put and you don't get your period. If you are infertile, you do everything but drop the egg.
It is not the same as in human females. Female dogs at around the ages of 6-10 months will start their first heat cycles. This is when they are ovulating and can get pregnant. This normally lasts about 2-3 weeks. The heat cycles normally occur every 6 months. Humans are not ovulating during a period but shedding out the excess uterine lining, totally different thing.
