Ovulation: You ovulate (pass the egg) only once per month, however there are three to four days plus that day where you are fertile to get pregnant as that egg moves around before being discarded by the body, if you dont use it. This is the time you can get pregnant.

Ovulation: In women with regular menstrual cycles, you will ovulate within 24 - 48 hours after a surge in lh hormone levels. You may see other symptoms that confirm ovulation such as change in cervical mucus, some discomfort . If the egg isn't fertilized, you will typically have your menstrual cycle 12 - 14 days after ovulation. In women with irregular cycles it's hard to predict when this occurs.

Depends: Ovulation typically takes place 14 days prior to the menstrual cycle. Therefore, in a 28 day cycle, ovulation usually happens at approximately day 14. In women who have cycles greater than 28 days, ovulation will take place later than day 14. In women with cycles shorter than 28 days, ovulation will take place earlier than day 14.

One day: If using ovulation predictor kits, you ovulate about 24 hours after it turns positive. Once you have ovulated, the ova can be around for another 24 hours. However, it is better to have intercourse before ovulation than after ovulation.
