How many days after my period do I start ovulating?

Depends on person: The reason women have different length to their cycles is because each woman may ovulate on a different day of their cycle. Most women ovulate around day 14-16 of their cycle. Women who are more mature may ovulate much earlier (~ day 10), which would shorten their overall period cycles. To determine, substract 12-14 days from the average length of your period cycles. That's when you Ovulate!
