Ovulation: About two weeks after the last period started is the right time for ovulation. Ovulation is frequently associated with midcycle spotting. The increasing estrogen, as ovulation approaches, results in breast tenderness for many women. The increasing progesterone, after ovulation, can cause nipple sensitivity.
