About 14.: Hi Jerry, In a text-book 28 day or any cycle, ovulation occurs pretty consistently 14 days prior to the onset of the menses.

In the mid -cycle: Ovulation physiologically occur in mid-cycle i.e. 2 weeks with 28 days regular period. To be more precise you may check your rectal temperature with termometer. Time of ovulation is associated with slight increase of your rectal temp compared to baseline.
