After by definition: You always ovulate 2 weeks before your period. If you are regular, you can estimate when you ovulate, which is usually mid-cycle or 2 weeks after your period. Have unprotected sex often around the day you would be ovulating, and this will give you the best chances of getting pregnant. Good luck. ...Read more

Fertility: Your question is incomplete. When do you ovulate in your cycle? Every female should know this simple and basic fact. Your period dates tell the doctor nothing except that you are ovulating. You should consider that the peak of your fertility is during the five days leading up to ovulation and the day of ovulation. These are the days that sperm is most likely to be alive long enough for egg. ...Read more

Yes. Days 11-16.: With a 28-day cycle, ovulation happens around day 14. That is day 14 counting from the beginning of a period (the first day of bleeding is day 1). That is also known as 14 days after lmp, which means last menstrual period. If wanting a baby, start having sex twice a day on day 11, for 6 days... And enjoy those days, without thinking about pregnancy, babies, or anything related to cycles. ...Read more
