Hormone cycles: That would be nearly impossible given how the hormone cycles drive the menstrual or ovulatory cycle. You ovulate about halfway through the cycle. Or about fourteen days before your next period.

14 days before : Ovulation occurs 14 days before your next menstrual cycle. If you had a menstrual cycle every 21 days then yes you would be ovulating on day 7. The best way to know if you are ovulating is to use a home ovulation kit available at any pharmacy. This is more reliable that tracking symptoms.

Probably: The length of your period is less predictive than the regularity of your cycle is to determine ovulation.
