Which one?: Your ovulation day on the previous cycle happened most likely 14 days before the 1st day of your period (*but see below) your next ovulation should occur, similarly 14 days before the first day of your next period. Then, it depends on whether this cycle will (or not) be shorter. *also, anovulatory cycles may occur. Check with your gyn to see what was the case. Best wishes.
