Younger : Younger women are more fertile. Women are most fertile from the time soon after their first period (age 11-13) through their early to mid twenties. Fertility then gradually decreases into the 30's and severely in the early 40's. There have been cases of women getting pregnant into the late 40's naturally. The most fertile time of the month is right after ovulation (when the egg is released from the woman's ovary). This occurs in the middle of the cycle, approximately 14-17 days after the last period. If pregnancy doesn't occur, then the next period occurs predictably ~2 weeks after leading to the average 23-28 day menstrual cycle. ...Read more

If you skip your period does that mean you didn't ovulate? And if you don't ovulate, you're not fertile?
Missing a period: The most common reason for "skipping a period", other than pregnancy is not ovulating (releasing an egg).

If you bleed mid cycle after your period does that indicate your most fertile days and does the day you start to bleed indicate the release of an egg?
Mid-cycle spotting: Spotting or bleeding mid-cycle is likely to be around the time of ovulation, when estrogen hormone levels drop. Progesterone hormone 'kicks in' to stop the bleeding. If you have regular cycles, an ovulation predictor kit (opk) is much more reliable than your spotting for finding your fertile days - 3 days starting with a positive opk. If your cycles are irregular, see a fertility specialist (rei). ...Read more
