About 2 weeks after: Ovulation usually happens about 2 weeks after the start of the last period (july 19 in this case). For a 28-day cycle, that's about day 14. It all depends on cycle length. For a 30-day cycle, ovulation is about 2 days later, on day 16 (see the pattern?). Life is not exact, so all dates are estimates.
