The period always starts 14 days after ovulation so with a 26 day cycle you would ovulate on cycle day 12. The first day of the period is considered cycle day 1.

Most scientific studies on healthy white middle class women with regular menses suggest that ovulation tends to occur 12 to 14 days before the onset of a woman's next menstrual period. If your cycles have been fairly regular for months, it is likely you may ovulate about day 12 of your 26 day cycles, plus or minus 2 days. Consider using your basal body temperature or "ovulation kits"to tell best
