Varies: It depends on how long your cycle is. You usually ovulate 14 days before the first day of your period. How long goes between the first day of your period and when you ovulate is a lot more variable. If you want to concieve, a good book to read to help figure out when you are ovulating and therefore most fertile is "taking charge of your fertility" by toni weschler.
