No - length of cycle: It is about mid-cycle. When depends on how long your cycle it. It would be about 2 weeks if your cycle was 28 days. You start counting from the first day of period. In this case anticipate ovulating about day 14 & having more chance of pregnancy days 13 to 15.

If a woman has regular cycles, does ovulation always occur about 2 weeks after a period?

Not always: But mostly, if she has a 28-day cycle. A better way to look at it is she will ovulate close to 2 weeks before the next period. So day 14 in a 28-day cycle, day 21 in a 35-day cycle, day 16 in a 30-day cycle, etc...

Unpredictable: Women who have polycystic ovarian syndrome and other conditions similar to that will not ovulate predictably. Sometimes only a few times a year. You should be evaluated by your doctor.

Not sure: This does not sound like a normal period, so it is completely uncertain when you might ovulate. I would need to know much more about your menstrual history.

I've been having a period for two weeks. What could be wrong? Is this what ovulation feels like?

Not ovulation: Vaginal bleeding for two weeks is not normal. At age 49 it's likely you are not far from menopause, and hormonal fluctuations are common. Uterine fibroids or hyperplasia (abnormal thickening) of the uterine lining is also possible. Sounds like it's time to see your gynecologist.
