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...

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.

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.
